A dark, monochrome ensemble is ideal for those wanting to make a more understated, minimalist impression while still expressing their own personality. Here, we pair Ten c’s uncompromisingly crafted down jacket with a pair of chunky Chelsea boots and add a tote bag from Japan’s Porter-Yoshida & Co. that can swallow everything you need to face the day.
Navy & Grey
Grey and navy-blue are guaranteed to create a pleasing visual harmony no matter the outfit. The thick texture of a pair of flannel trousers further enhances the luxurious appearance of one of Moncler’s down jackets. Completing the ensemble with a pair of peccary gloves is the perfect finishing touch.
Black & Beige
Originating in the American state of Wyoming, Rocky Mountain Featherbed is now in the safe hands of one of Japan’s finest producers. Layered atop a warm rollneck jumper, a thick down jacket from Rocky Mountain Featherbed makes for an interesting yet practical outfit with an outdoor accent. Here, we have chosen to further underscore the rock’n’roll look of its leather yoke with a pair of timeless sunglasses from Saint Laurent.
