THE FALL STYLE ISSUE: THE CAMEL TOPCOAT
ver the last several years, fashion industry vet Todd Snyder has established himself as one of the preeminent American menswear designers of his generation. Accolades have rolled in, collabs with everyone from Champion to Timex have popped up, and the Iowa native’s name has become synonymous with relaxed-yet-refined tailoring that looks as at-home in the stands at a high school football game as it does gliding down a Park Avenue sidewalk.
Case in point: Snyder’s take on the British officer’s coat, done in a luxe Italian wool/cashmere blend that not only cuts a decidedly more chill figure than traditional black, but is also warm enough to not require the added weight and bulk of a lining.
Like we said, relaxed-yet-refined. Maybe you’ll get lucky and that same description will wind up applied to you.
