Winter has to be one of my favourite times of the year. Yes, it’s cold, wet and generally miserable for the most part, but for me it means I can start layering up! Maybe if I still lived in Queensland and could get away with wearing close to no clothing year round I’d be singing a different tune.

After years of being spoilt for choice and having my clothing collection grow into multiple cupboards, I’ve now learnt to be very selective in what I buy each season. Stylistically I try and keep it fairly minimal but always with a point of difference in there somewhere, and of course, comfort is king!

With the introduction of Kapital to our brand list, I’ve adopted their Ring Coat as my favourite jacket year round, for this outfit I’ve gone with the Katsuragi Cotton in Black. Underneath that I have my Twill Ribbed Pullover from Tender Co., worn over the top of an Indigo Robes Badger shirt. The knit has been overdyed in a mixture of Fermented Indigo and Tumeric, one of the oldest known recipes to create Khaki. The research and detail that goes into every Tender Co. item is crazy, hence why it has been a store favourite for years!

Down below I’ve gone with the Pant De Travail from French brand Bleu De Paname. These Indigo patchwork pants are unbelievably comfortable, nice and loose through the leg, with a nice weight to them. And then finally, courtesy of Converse, I’m all about the resurgence of the One Star. I don’t have enough variations of the One Star in my closet yet, but with the upcoming releases there will be an abundance. With the cooler weather only really starting to kick in, make sure you come in store and let us help you see out Winter in comfort!

Winter is definitely my favourite time of year. This is mainly due to the multitude of options available when getting dressed for the day, a lot of which is dependent on melbourne’s ever changing and often temperamental weather patterns. It gives us a chance to pull out some statement and investment pieces that spend the majority of the year buried at the back of our wardrobes.

I tend to keep things reasonably simple and adopt a less is more approach to what I wear. Classic colours, simple lines and nothing too flamboyant. I’m a sucker for a white button down shirt and I think everyman should have multiple in his repertoire. In this outfit I have opted for an Engineered Garments 19 Century BD Shirt in a White Cotton Oxford, as far as quality and fit goes these are unbeatable. With a slightly looser and elongated hem, they put a nice twist on a classic oxford.

Layered over the top is a Norse Projects Sigfred Marino Knit in Navy. Majority of my wardrobe is some shade of navy or blue so this piece was a no-brainer and it pairs nicely with my new pair of Aprix Suede Low. Aprix are a new brand for the store and I already love them, nothing beats a clean, basic sneaker that can be dressed up or down, perfect for all occasions.

With Melbourne’s weather being as unpredictable as it is, a nice coat that can be layered and keeps you dry is essential. It’s hard to go past Hancock VA when it comes to rainwear, their classic and elegant silhouettes add a touch of class to any outfit. This time around I’ve gone for my Article 56 in the Fawn/Mastic colourway.

I’ve decided to keep it reasonably casual on my bottom half with a much loved pair of OrSlow 105 Standard Denim, 2 Year Wash. Previous to purchasing my first pair of these, I had always struggled to find the perfect pairs of jeans, but I haven’t looked back since. They have a great relaxed cut through the leg and a medium rise in the waist. They are also a great length in the leg, which is a tall order for us vertically challenged folk.
