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.
Skip wasn’t able to join us this week for Date Night (he’s busy kicking butt in the legal world!) but he agreed that our beloved series couldn’t miss out on doing Groundhog Day this week. Who doesn’t watch this cult classic five times back to back every February 2nd? I’ve put together pieces for both Ned and Phil because I honestly couldn’t pass up on this screen shot of the two of them. Check back in a little later for Rita’s getup.

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!

It was freezing this past weekend in New England with -20 temperatures. Even while wearing my knit mittens, my fingers felt like they had frost bite. My fingers barely functioned after being outside for a mere 30 minutes. So while desperately fiddling with my keys, trying to get my apartment lock open with frozen stiff fingers I realized I needed some new gloves. At the moment my options are just a colorful pair of knit mittens or my hardcore snowboarding mitts (which are a pain off the mountain and only allow me to paw at things rather violently). In my mind, the perfect finger savior would be a pair of tan leather gloves with cozy shearling lining. A pair like the ones your dad wears when he shovels the snow or racks the leaves. I’ve found several good glove/mitt options above but if you know of a pair that has saved you and your hands many a winter, please let me know!
If your dream has been to grow up to be an Bavarian woodsman, Orvis will help you make that a reality. With authentic pieces such as the Wool Tyrol Hat, Wool Alpine Jacket, Steinbock Tyrolean Sport Coat, and Loden Wool Vest, you’ll be able to wear the tailored staples that Austrian gentlemen have been wearing for centuries. Not only will you be traditionally stylish, you’ll be warm and comfortable for the cold months ahead (whether you are skiing the Alps or kicking around in the New England snow). I look forward to when Orvis will offer pieces for the those of us who dream of being a Bavarian woodswoman!
