Top 5 / Jackets from Le Chateau
Goodbye short shorts and tank tops, time to unpack the fall gear from storage and if you’re like me, start hunting through the new Fall/Winter collections for some new pieces. I always approach each season with a big picture in mind, a checklist of staple pieces I’ll need to take me from October to March. I expect my style to be simple, subtle and well-fitted so classic pieces are always on the radar.
In spring and summer, my outfit is designed from the sneakers up. In fall and winter, my jacket down. I connected with some old friends at Le Chateau to poke through some of their new releases and was immediately glued to this one navy and tan aviator style jacket. I needed it. Shopping through the outerwear page, there was another…and another…so now here we are. Here are my top 5 pieces from Le Chateau for a well-rounded rotation this season.
1| Wool Blend & Sherpa Bomber
I dig every inch of this bomber with its heavy textured wool body, contrasting faux sherpa collar and the pronounced flap pockets giving some extra detail. A great look paired with a fitted turtleneck, knitted sweater or just a casual grey or white tee on a weekend.
2| Melton Wool Blend Top Coat (Taupe)
A nice-fitting top coat is simply a must-have and the most versatile of the bunch. A sharp piece for a night on the town or holiday party with a suit trouser or slim black jean and boot. Change it up paired with joggers or light denim and a hoodie for a street style vibe.
3| Melton Wool Blend Top Coat (Grey)
Just a safer bet in an easier tone to style. A dark grey top coat is probably my #1 piece this season and will be getting a lot of wear. Start with this one if you have to choose between just one colour.

5| Tonal Tweed Blazer
There’s always room for casual professional. Winter and fall is all about textures so this stretchy blazer has got the goods. I’ve tried this one over white tees, collared oxford shirts and even a hoodie and it looks great every single time. The felt-like contrasting collar is a nice detail and looks sharp popped as well. This is a must have for the office working or freelance man.
