This wool zip cardigan from Acne is a grail.

This might be the best knit piece that I can remember seeing from any of the Fall/Winter collections this year. Might have to pull the trigger on it.

Lambswool hats from Berg&Berg’s Fall/Winter Collection:

These things look incredible. There are a bunch more color ways on the site, and any of them could be a go to hat for the coming months.

This post is long overdue. These are some detail shots of the Modasuite blazer I got for Christmas. I’m doing close-ups, because I’m really impressed with all the details of this blazer. The first thing you notice about this blazer is obviously the fabric and pattern. It’s made from a lightweight gray wool, with an awesome windowpane pattern. For a lighter fabric, there is a lot of depth in the wool. On the outside, the blazer has flap pockets, a patch breast pocket, and notch lapels.

The inside of the jacket is just as cool. The blazer is lined with a blue and white striped oxford cloth (striped tan silk in the sleeves). The pockets are all great. One for my wallet, one for my notebook, and one that fits my shades perfectly. However, my favorite detail of the blazer is the red lapel padding, shown when the lapel is flipped. This is a signature Modasuite detail, and one I am very glad is on the blazer.

Over all this is a great blazer, and the price doesn’t hurt either. The details and construction are all spot on. The only thing that was a bit off for me was the tapering. The waist/hip area is very slim, so be wary. This blazer is going to get a lot of wear in the coming seasons.

These are some of the most attractive laptop cases/sleeves I have ever seen. They are manufactured by Hard Graft and made from Italian cow leather and 100% wool in Germany.

WIWT - It was definitely cold today, so that meant gloves and a hat, as well as my insulated pea coat and merino v-neck. So much of winter clothing relies on texture to set it apart from other people’s clothing, as well as the pieces in your outfit. This kit is by no means flashy and eye-catching, but it kept me warm as hell and displayed some nice textural elements.

One thing I will never wear is a slouchy hat; I think hats look best when close to the head. It also helps if your hat is a nice wool or cashmere blend with a ribbed or cable-knit surface. Gloves are another great way to put some individuality into your outfit. There are two ways to do this; you can go for color or texture (maybe both). Here, I used the latter. These herringbone ones have a nice contrast in the wool and leather. Photo credit goes to Amy Shusta.

Norman Hilton just released its Fall 2011 look book, shot on a horse farm outside of Philadelphia, and the jackets are looking more than on point. These shots exhibit a perfect fall color palette with a few unexpected hues slipped in there. There are a few things I’d change about the styling (mainly loosening up those collars), but overall this New York brand is running a clinic on how to wear wool. this season.

I’m in the market for a very substantial looking grey blazer/sport coat for this coming fall and winter. This two-button wool jacket from Burberry London is deadly. I’d love to own this jacket.
