Weekend Wear: Put Some Edge In Your Step With These Reinvented Classics

Menswear is built on the classics, but that doesn’t mean you always have to stick to boring old basics. This weekend, look to put a bit of edge into your step with traditional pieces — a fishtail parka, oxford, trousers, and leather boots — that’ve been reinvented with just the right amount of attitude.


1. Faith Connexion Military Parka, $2,500 at Farfetch

The fishtail parka is having a strong showing this season, and Faith Connexion have a particularly unique take on the utilitarian coat. Not only does it trade the traditional olive for black, but it’s also been emblazoned with an edgy, eye-catching asymmetrical print.

2. Acne Studios Button Down Shirt, $260

This shirt is made of brushed cotton, meaning it’s exceptionally soft to the touch. The button down point collar will keep it looking crisp, whether you wear it on its own or under your favourite knit.

3. Lacoste Textured Slim Pants, $195

Lacoste may call these pants “slim,” but their looser, tapered design is much more contemporary than the skintight pants of yesteryear. The textured fabric and piping details add a welcome dose of dimension and interest.

4. Oak and Fort Knit Hat, $15

A thick beanie is an ideal addition to top off any outfit in the colder days ahead. This knit hat can be folded several different ways, making it a versatile essential.

5. Barton Perreira Roux 48MM Round Sunglasses, $780 at Saks Fifth Avenue

These Barton Perreira sunglasses are effortlessly cool. Its retro shape has been updated with a unique mix of blue tortoiseshell and titanium, while the dark green lenses will keep any winter rays at bay.

6. Saint Laurent Harness Lace up Boots, $1,610 at Farfetch

The harness detail on these leather boots is a fresh addition to a classic and timeless style. It adds the edgy, rocker vibe that Saint Laurent is known for.
