Have you noticed there has been a shift away from suede, leather and cashmere coats as evidenced by the Fall collections? These time-honored pieces have traded in their Chesterfield coats and unlined Burberry trench coats for something less sedate to something with more swag, a more amped-up attitude.
No question this fall’s collection makes you whisper to yourself, “yeah it’s grabbing my attention and maybe I can do this.” I think part of this emerging phenomena is that it’s a delicate balance between being status quo and expressing a strong identity.
At The Royal Bloke, we challenge ourselves every single day to seek out the best in the market and share with you what we consider the best design, the best quality, the best value, what fits your casual lifestyle and how lasting it will be.
Let’s take a look at some of our favorite outerwear pieces this fall:
Relwen’s Loden Herringbone Trap Jacket has transformed the iconic hunting jacket into a modern, natural shoulder jacket or hybrid outerwear piece for all occasions. It’s not thornproof but you would be an immediate hit when you step off the fields and head off to your favorite pub. Aside from wearing it as a jacket, I lean toward turning the collar up on chilly days and wearing an eye-catching scarf.
This could possibly be “the” jacket of the season….the Waxed Forest Snap CPO Jacket by Relwen. Heritage-inspired outerwear brands like Relwen deliver copious details, styling that is lasting and durability. This is definitely one to add to your outerwear rotation. The camo lining is so cool I’ve considered wearing it reversible.
Benson fine-tuned the quilted vest this season with an eye-catching blue camo print reversible vest.There’s camo and there is camo that separates good from great. Who’d of thought of a blue camo quilted vest? But it works perfectly with just about everything in your wardrobe and at the same time provides warmth, insulation and swag.
Jamie Rupp, the applauded designer for Relwen, states that sweaters are nature’s outerwear and we think he’s so right on. There was a time when one considered sweaters to be worn in predictable ways. We find knitwear shouldn’t be pigeonholed. Relwen elevates sweaters to a more versatile role such as a hybrid outerwear piece as evidenced with this season’s 5 gauge heather grey zip cardigan. Epic!
And then there is color for the brave of heart. You know who you are. Relwen’s Red Wool Snap CPO Jacket is hands-down our choice. If I were looking for something to shake up my outerwear collection it would be this piece. I think it speaks for itself. Your decision!
These are just a small representation of this season’s exciting outerwear collection. We invite you to visit our site and feel free to email me if you have any questions about the brands we carry, fit – whatever. The Royal Bloke is here to make your shopping experience hassle-free and downright fun.
