A Unique Parka
Whenever the weather allows it, changing from heavy duffle or overcoats to something lighter and more practical is a welcome change. The lightweight parka is an essential and versatile addition to any wardrobe, an allrounder wearable from early Fall to late Winter. This Cross Jacket is a perfect example, combining a soft twill fabric with several outstanding details such as a warm puffed lining, adjustable drawstring on the waist with leather detailing, biased patch front pockets and button cuffs. Its mao-like collar works brilliantly with a turtleneck sweater, providing the perfect chance to take a break from shirts while keeping a polished and elegant look. I must say my position on turtlenecks has been one of love/hate, mostly because of the poor uses we come across on a daily basis, but also due to its cliché-ish associations. To keep things interesting a dash of color through orange chinos and striped socks, balanced by a pair of blue suede loafers…
