LET A LAYER LAY: THE FINE ART OF WINTER LAYERING
Unless you live on some sort of Caribbean sea turtle research station, you’ve probably noticed that the winter weather lately has been nuts. The solution? Some good old fashioned layering tips:
1. When it’s chilly, go shawl collar.
Yes, that shawl collar actually has a purpose – when the fishermen of yesteryear first started wearing it, they would pop it up to cover their necks when it got extra cold. And guess what … you can too! We suggest the Bridgewater or the Carmel to do the job.
2. Don a windproof jacket over your sweater.
When you put a wind layer over a sweater, it’s essentially as warm as a quilted coat. With one difference: you can always take the sweater off if you get too hot. The Quartermaster and the Deckhander jackets will both keep the cold breezes at bay.
3. Cotton is your friend.
How come? Because he always remembers your birthday. And because Good Sir Cotton is known for its breathability. A lightweight cotton sweater like the Northfork can go under or over just about anything. It’s warm enough for a snowstorm, but light enough for a balmy afternoon … or even a cool night at your favorite Caribbean sea turtle research station.
Think you’re ready? Good. Because you can hate the game, but don’t hate the layer.
