While It’s Hot, Think Cold

Most men overlook jacketing options during the hot summer months and yes, it does matter, gentlemen! While you’re enjoying this 85-degree weather you should start thinking about what you’re going to wear to stay warm this winter. You don’t want to be left out in the cold.

As the climate drops in the city of brotherly love, your wardrobe fabrics get heavier and your color options lend themselves towards a richer color palette. However, keep an open mind this season as there are other ways to style yourself besides suits and custom dress shirts. Items including jewelry, cuff links, custom neckwear, belts, and overcoats will help you add flair to your attire and complement a well-dressed gentleman’s look.

An overcoat is a solid piece to add to your wardrobe during these cool months. They are extremely versatile menswear pieces with different colors and silhouettes. As new styles are released, men are finding ways to utilize the sophisticated business classic with their more casual looks.

Overcoat color tones to explore:

Our selected overcoat tones are functional for everyday wear, with hues that also coincide with 2017 fashion trends. Every season Pantone, the authority on color, releases their Fashion Color Report. Click on the link below to explore the 10 tones they have selected as the color palette for Fall 2017.


Ways To Wear Your Overcoat:

1 Office classic – A well-dressed man knows an overcoat is a practical option to pair with his work suits. Selecting a neutral color like black, camel, or gray will help you pair your custom piece with more of the items already existing in your closet.

2 Business casual – If your work has a more relaxed atmosphere or you’re attending a business casual event, try pairing your overcoat with one of your custom dress shirts and a pair of slacks. Loafers or a pair of shoes like Cole Hanns keep the look sharp and refined.

3 Out & About – If you’re spending a casual day in the city or a night out with friends, opt for a pair of dark wash jeans and a plain t-shirt to outfit your overcoat. To keep the look trendy select your favorite pair of fashion sneakers. Give a pair of Adidas, Nikes, Vans, or Converses a try.

4 Street Style – Philadelphia suit trend setters will love the look they get by mixing a pair of joggers, a long sleeve henley, and boots with their overcoat. Complete the look by adding a set of trend worthy bracelets. Tateossian, sold at Henry A. Davidsen, has become a Philadelphia men’s favorite. You can effortlessly mix and match different bracelet color sets and styles together, leaving you with a more personalized and unique look.
