Nothing better than a fantastic store and an incredibly talented designer collaborating for a capsule collection. Karl Thoennessen of Rogue Territory has created an exclusive run for Need Supply. The collection, Wash Me Over, features “hand distressed, enzyme bathed field wear for life in the flicker of the summer sun.” The Field Jacket, Work Shirt, and Officer Trouser are hand crafted from 6oz Kaihara Mills chambray. Each piece is handled individually and distressed by hand for a truly individual feel and look.

I’m one of those people who is crazy about stripes. I see a stripe, and I am immediately drawn to it. There is something so simplistically appealing about the pattern, especially on a perfect cotton T. Whether they are mini stripes, multi stripes, thick stripes or blue and white, red and navy, grey and white, etc. Some people stick to some archaic rules about striped shirts. Horizontal stripes make you look bigger. Or a striped T on a man makes him look like a boy. That’s all just silly nonsense to me. And I can’t resist a man in a great fitting, soft, striped T. Above are some great choices for the gentlemen out there looking to add some stripes to their your wardrobe (click on the image to be led to the product page). You can go the classic St. James boatneck route or mix it up with a henley. Either way, you’ll look great in my book. And be sure to keep an eye on Chance Co. Known for their expertise in producing the perfect striped apparel, they’ll be launching a men’s collection soon!

I’m a sucker for hats – any season, all seasons. And when the seasons change, it tends to set me off on a new hat hunt. I’m currently searching for a new straw one for the upcoming warm summer months. So far, I’ve found the above. Let me know if you stumble across any others that you think are worth a gander! Men’s, women’s, kids’, and unisex styles are welcome.
A much appreciated reader of N’East Style suggested I do a round-up of suitable winter hats, similar to my post on gloves and mittens. Obviously I instantly jumped into an intense hat mission searching for the perfect variety of options. I now give you my selection of knit, fur, leather, and felt hats that I believe will take the men and women of New England through the snow storms predicted for this week and beyond!
