  • Technically Speaking

    Style  

    Technical outerwear is having a moment, a shining moment...literally. In fact, the shinier the better. We like that it pairs really well with the hardy tweeds, scruffy herringbones, and woolly flannels we're wearing this winter. While goose down parkas and puffer vests over tailored clothing isn't necessarily virgin territory, what seems to be feeling really good right now is layering on a lacquered piece.

    Moncler, known for its signature lacquered nylon (you know, the down jackets you can practically see your reflection in), has been preaching this gospel for some time now. RLX has been following suit. Uniquely positioned at the intersection of high design and technical peak performance apparel, their commitment to technical performance wear as of late is impressive.

    If for only layering, like this lightweight down vest, opt for a bright hue. It's just at home under your jacket as it is over it (and don't worry about your jacket peeking out from under the vest). Just keep it low profile and fitted, but not tight. The matte and luster contrast creates an interesting dynamic with visual depth that highlights your rig, not hijacks it. Shine on.

  • JACK SPADE x GapKids

    Style  

    There is no better play date happening right now in kids fashion than the one between Jack Spade, Kate Spade, and GapKids. The quirk and childlike imagination inherent in the Spades' DNA are a natural fit for the American brand that is singlehandedly dressing kids like grown-ups with timely design at accessible price points. The boys and I loaded up in a '70s Ford Bronco for a top down autumn afternoon with Fletcher, the Westie (who happens to be a fan of the hand scarf). While the entire limited edition collection* channels the Spade ethos, highlights for the boys include the geo camo jacket and the coated backpacks.

  • On the Run

    Dress Code  

    Photographed in New York, NY

    Noteworthy: Ralph Lauren tortoise sunglasses, Parrot ZIK wireless headphones. These headphones have kind of become Owen's "thing." Every time I run into him he has them around his neck if they aren't on his ears. The design is discreet (as most good design is) with no logos, but most impressive is the sound. They say, " I love music and great design." They also say a few other things like, "I'm smart enough and secure enough to be unaffected by Beats by Dre marketing" or "my taste is sophisticated." The ZIK very well could be the best headphone under $400. Now I want a pair.
