Every week, we sit down with Nick Wooster—our very own in-house style expert and all-around dapper gent—to take a look at what’s on the horizon and call out a few favorites. Here, his take on the cream of the crop for the days ahead.
Garrett Leight California Optical — Monday, 12/19, noon ET
“Garrett Leight is the son of the founder of Oliver Peoples, so great eyewear is in his DNA. And as I approach the reading glasses stage of my life—don’t worry, you’ll understand soon enough—I’m always on the lookout for a new pair of glasses. We’re really lucky to have such a great assortment of his frames and sunglasses, and it’s a great time to pick them up as a gift or for yourself.”
Martin Greenfield — Monday, 12/19, noon ET
“What can be said about Martin Greenfield that hasn’t already been said? But any opportunity to get your hands on something made by the man with some of the finest fabrics and hand tailoring in New York is one you should take. If you’re in the market for a suit, or even if you’re not, you should rush to this sale.
Also, sometime in the spring, I’ll be debuting a collection with Greenfield. Details to come…”
J Brand — Tuesday, 12/20, noon ET
“Every major retailer from Bergdorfs to Barneys to Neiman to Saks sells J Brand like crazy. And there’s a reason for that. Here’s an opportunity for you to get your hands on a really hot brand at a steal.”
SPURR — Tuesday, 12/20, noon ET
“I have a long history with Simon and all the guys at SPURR. He’s a super nice guy and I really respect and admire his ability to cut a great suit as well as a great pair of jeans and everything in between. This is a sale I’m personally looking forward to.”
Gilt MAN Finds: Vintage Watches Curated by Benjamin Clymer of HODINKEE — Wednesday, 12/21, noon ET
“Run, don’t walk. This is not a test. Fire drill. And all of that. This is the sale to check out first. These are a personal and a fan favorite, and this one should not be missed. Set an alarm.”
Band of Outsiders — Thursday, 12/22, noon ET
“Because of my stature, a lot of guys ask me what collections really work for smaller guys. Band of Outsiders should be your number one. But don’t worry: Even if you’re a tall guy, it’ll work too. No one captures that youth-inspired American spirit quite like Scott Sternberg, so this is one to check out.”
Bespoken — Thursday, 12/22, noon ET
“The Fayed and Goncalves brothers have not only learned the art of tailoring and fine shirtmaking with roots in places like England’s storied Turnbull & Asser, but they’re bringing a new perspective to it. Great young guys putting a really modern spin on old school English tailoring.”
