MEN'S FASHION GUIDES
Nine Layering Pieces You Need In Your Wardrobe (And How To Use Them)
Get to grips with the pieces that are glue for the rest of your wardrobe
We’ve got a lot of love for the hoodie, and becoming acquainted with it as a menswear staple is arguably the best thing about being a teenager. Of course, the trouble until recently was that beyond those years, it was inappropriate to be seen in one. But not anymore. Over the past few years, the hoodie has gone high-end, and it gets even better when recruited as a layer during autumn.
Keep the colour mid- to light-grey marl and the styling simple – we should never see a hoodie worn as outerwear. Always use the hoodie as a layer. Pop one on under a leather jacket or wool overcoat on off-duty days, or get creative by wearing one beneath your suit jacket on the commute (we assume to a business-casual office, unless you actually want your marching orders).
Resist the urge to become a walking billboard by opting for styles with minimal branding and added design details. Or risk the new classic being banished back to its adolescent bedroom.
