So after a little refinement this is my new list, I rethought some things and added some new stuff (stolen from other lists). I should clarify I’d be hunting in the woods around the Mid Section of Ontario. It’s spring now I’d expect lows at night no greater than -5 Celsius and highs of 15 Degrees Celsius. These are thick woods lots of moss covered ankle breaking rock and deadfall. No great elevations but lots of lakes and lots of green. Granted I’m in more Wendigo Country but maybe that can be a game for another time. I’m planning this with the expectation that I’d be with a similarly equipped squad sized team. Drew most of my inspiration for change from @grumpyvikingdidnothingwrong@john-paul-jonesing-for-liberty@canadian-carbine and @bigredm38
For me, one of the most interesting aspects of colder days is the variety of outfit combinations they allow. Layering is not only a necessary technique to fend off cold, but also one of the most creative ways to explore your wardrobe and come up with unique styles. Although there are some rules to be kept in mind, both for aesthetic and functional purposes, I find myself constantly trying to bend them and invert traditional layering elements.
In this particular case, which of course is not suitable for harsh climate, I aimed to explore different uses for essential garments such as the v-neck cashmere sweater, popover shirt and tweed vest, all while maintaining a mix of casual and polished elements. More often than not, the v-neck would find its place as an outer layer with the tweed vest being worn under a blazer or topcoat; here I went for a different approach wearing the sweater over a tee, the popover shirt as an outer layer and the vest as outerwear. The polished nature of the vest, sweater and wool slacks are broken down by the chambray shirt and camo sneakers. Accessories such as the pocket square and paisley scarf complete the look.
Details: cotton tee by Levi’s, v-neck cashmere/silk sweater by Massimo Dutti, chambray popover shirt by Zara, houndstooth vest by Purificacion Garcia, tailored wool slacks by Gentleman, camo sneakers by Asos, paisley scarf by Zara and pocket square by The Tie Rack.
