This season I have noticed a huge trend with everything that has to do with textures. These surfaces give a garment or accessory this liveliness as well as different aesthetic look under different light or from the distance due to the naturally shadowing that the texture creates.
Personally, I always like to comb my hand through the different textures as it is quite pleasant to the tact and to be honest, as a guy it makes you much more approachable at the bar, as everyone will want to run their hands through you a jacquard scarf or velvet dinner jacket.
Here are some of my personal favorites:
RALPH LAUREN SAINT TROPEZ SILVER BOAT SHOES
Going to spend some time at a resort, going from sail-yacht to tiki-bar? These bad boys will make you shine. Pair them with our next two items and thank us later.
209 MARE MONACO SWIM SHORTS IN ISOLA BLUE
Seeing as how you are already picturing yourself at a resort in St Barthelemy, throw these all-day allrounders which are adjustable at the sides and can double as the everyday Bermudas. They have been tailored to a “T”.
209 MARE TOWELING JACKET IN BALI BLUE/ 209 MARE SEA MASTER TOWELING HOODIE IN TALAMANCA GREY
Whether you prefer to be formal or casual, keep it classy and keep it comfy. Both our Towel Tuxedo and Sea Master Toweling Hoodie are cashmere-soft and have been thoughtfully shaped to make you look your best. Besides, those rectangular towels are only good to lay on. Class it up a bit this season and you will wonder how you ever managed without one of these.
SUITSUPPLY WINTER COAT IN BLACK AND WHITE HOUNDSTOOTH
Staying in the cold? Here is what I bought this season- a coat from SuitSupply. The texture is sublime as are the colors. Seamlessly elegant yet still a show-stopper without having to be macro-branded like all those classless clothes the kids today are wearing for Instagram likes.
LOEWE GOYA LEATHER PORTFOLIO
I simply love their signature pattern and this fashion house is extremely underrated. So if you have a last-minute end of the year sales pitch, this is what you should carry into that meeting room. It tells people you are serious and value the better things in life without having to show everyone that you know what Louis Vuitton is. In other words, it shows you are an independent thinker with a personality and not a poser without taste.
LEIGHT Crosby S SEMI-TORTOISE-SHELL/TITANIUM SHELL
I Found these slick shades today, they are absolutely sublime in their shape and oddly understated. The strong and thick frame makes them resistant whether you are carving down the slopes in Courchevel or at an afternoon cocktail on a sailboat in Bermuda.
