In an effort to show the fashion set the kind of gear that guys are really into this season,Details.com's Daily Details blog is checking into what's good in good stores at the moment. We definitely agree with their Blackbird picks - it's tough to go wrong with choices like Wings + Horns' heavy virgin wool hoodies, our one-of-a-kind Alden for Blackbird wingtips, Robert Geller's comfortable and well-cut cotton bomber jackets, crazy unique yet subtle and versatile trousers from Julius, or Fjallraven's must-have vintage style backpacks. Nice call, guys.
Wings + Horns - Wool Handknit Hoodie
in black (also available in gray brown)
DETAILS: 100% virgin wool heavy gauge knit hoodie with oversized Ideal zipper. This handmade sweater has all the character of an old fisherman's knit, and features Wings + Horns' slimmed down, modern silhouette, two front pockets, and a hood to boot. Wear this black and brown combo with dark grays, green, and burgundy.
Made by hand in Canada.
Alden for Blackbird - Short Wing Blucher
DETAILS: 100% calf leather blucher style wingtip with Goodyear welt construction in dark burgundy. Made expressly for Blackbird (that's what the stamp on the insole says), this model is our reinterpretation of the classic wingtip styles worn by generations of stylish and distinguished professionals. Featuring details like a heavy leather sole, a stacked heel with visible nails on the bottom, a soft and durable calf leather upper, and this almost-black oxblood burgundy finish, this shoe looks great under a suit or with a pair of faded rolled jeans or khakis. For dress, pair them with nearly any color you can think of. This color does it all.
Robert Geller - Washed Cotton Hooded Bomber
in navy (also available in black)
DETAILS: 100% cotton hooded bomber jacket with oxydized metal buttons and two-way zipper. Robert Geller reinterprets this jacket for fall in thick, overdyed cotton canvas to dramatic effect. Featuring a ribbed bottom hem and cuffs and a large functional hood, this slim coat is warm, comfortable, and stylish. Wear it with Geller's Five Pocket Skinny Jeans and a T-shirt for a sleek dressed down look or layer it up with your favorite flannel this winter. Note: this navy/purple shade adds an extra dimension to fall's gray and black palette.
Don't fear the navy.
Julius - 277PAM1 Pants
DETAILS: 50% cotton, 50% cupro kersey trousers with curved leg seams and rough hem detail at the leg opening. These pants are made out of a distinctive kersey cotton blend that features a light sheen and an almost waxy texture. The curved side seams add understated character, twisting at the knee to run down the front and back of each leg like stitched ironed-in creases. Wear them with tonal textural knits and a button-down for a dark, dressed up look or tuck them into heavy boots for a futuristic military vibe.
