Layer Item #1 for Fall 2009

Prepidemic Magazine lists as the v-neck cashmere sweater as their # 1 layering item. "The v-neck sweater is something that every man should have on his closet. It can be worn with nearly anything. It’s the classic layering item. Wear it over a button down and you’re golden. Wear it by itself and you’re fresh. Wear it under a jacket and you’re a stud. But this is something you all should know by now. The real question is which v-neck you should own. Well, it should most definitely be cashmere and it should most definitely be simple (get it in navy or heather grey if this is your first serious sweater)."

Eric Wright, the recently installed creative director of high-end French retailer Fa├žonnable, has been obsessed with fashion since the age of five. For his first collection coming out this fall, Wright, a San Francisco native, drew inspiration from the climates of the two cities that helped shape his sensibilities. "I've always had an appreciation for the weight of fabrics and for the importance of layering," he says. "Growing up in San Francisco, which has the same sort of weather as Nice, you apply layers in the morning because it's cooler, and by the afternoon, you're down to your shirtsleeves because it's very very warm." See full article here.

J. Hilburn shares that same appreciation for layering, which brings me to our Fall sweater collection; a perfect way to stay warm and stylish with very little weight.

You can wear our Ivy V-Neck to work or when you're just bumming around. Layer it over a dress shirt and tie or even just a tee shirt. The name is a nod to this sweater's preppy beginnings that helped define classic American menswear style and continues to inspire designers today.

The Houston, pronounced "How--stin", takes it style cues from New York City. It's inspired by the city's famed SoHo neighborhood, an area known for its hip artists, lofts, and trendy shops where you'd likely find guys strolling in vintage denim and designer, double zip sweaters. To that end, check out our Houston Zip Cardigan. It can take the lead for a night on the town or layer nicely under your favorite sportcoat.
