Fashionable Cold Weather Gear


Schott NYC Perfecto
Schott NYC has been producing tough-as-nails outerwear in New York for 101 years. Their Perfecto label was first sold in 1928 at a Long Island Harley Davidson distributor and predated Harley’s house brand motorcycle jackets by almost 40 years. (The iconic The Wild Ones shot of Marlon Brando straddling his motorcycle features a Schott Perfecto.) The utilitarian efficiency of Schott apparel has appealed to fringe dwellers from the very start and they remain true to this heritage. This ANJ4 wool bomber combines multiple materials for near indestructibility and to keep you warm, and also features detailing and color contrasts that will make you stand out in a crowd. $675 at, or 236 Elizabeth St, Manhattan


Jean Shop Rockers
Rock on. And on. And on. Jean Shops Rockers are meant to age and evolve with the wearer and to develop their own personalities over time. Woven from a single continuous thread of yarn, this selvedge denim is produced in Japan and crafted in the US. The Rocker silhouette is back-to-basics and although it’s available in a variety of fades we get ours untreated and break ’em in. Quick tip: True denimheads buy Jean Shop rockers one size smaller than usual because the fabric eases to a perfect fit. $290; and 37 Crosby St, Manhattan


Wolverine 1,000-Mile
A boot that stays comfortable over 1,000 miles is nice, but it’s even better when that same boot looks equally stunning paired with a suit or pulled on under jeans. Wolverine’s 1,000-Mile collection of formidable footwear is handcrafted in Big Rapids, Michigan. The boot pattern was first introduced in 1914 and the 100th anniversary is being celebrated in a variety of styles and colors as well as leathers that include bison and horsehide. $300-$750; available at Tenet in Southampton, Hirshleifers in Manhasset and Mur-Lee’s in Lynbrook
