As summer came to an end, it became clear that streetwear labels such as Reason and SSUR did very well over the hot months of 2013, with their garments being spotted on the average man on the street as well as on celebrities. As autumn has settled in and winter approaches swiftly, the streetwear look (widely available via some of the most exciting independent retailers) is forecast to stay strong, with the cut-off jeans and light T-shirts of summer being replaced by heavy-duty jackets, branded sweats and plaid shirts.
Examples of menswear brands that offer accomplished examples of streetwear include Carhartt, whose range of jackets for the winter months includes the casual and yet timelessly elegant bottle green Chore coat, which features attention-grabbing details such as adjustable cuffs and a corduroy collar that makes it the perfect outer-layer.
Another welcome arrival is the new season Palace drop, one of the hottest brands in streetwear and skate culture. Palace’s latest range includes a heavyweight green plaid shirt that would look great with the Carhartt Chore coat and teamed with a pair of slim-fit Cheap Monday jeans and a woollen Huf beanie.
In footwear, Vans offer some great streetwear options for the colder months, including the leather Old Skool Reissue shoes, a good choice to brave dipping temperatures and damp weather. And by simply adding a camo backpack, you have your streetwear style sorted for the colder months.
