Accessorize Thoughtfully: Getting the look or FIT to be completed is all about attention to details. Whether it’s your Carhart Beanies, thrifted scarves, and fingerless gloves, these are excellent winter accessories that can update your shacket fit to the next level.
Mix and Match: Don't be afraid to mix different patterns and textures. This is what Brooklyn Cloth design is about. We don’t think there should be a rule of what to or not to wear but instead we love our friends to be comfortable in all they wear. Combining flannel with thrifted denim or wide wale corduroy pants creates a visually appealing contrast. We think Wallabees are a must, and some textured socks are a must-have, too.
Choose the Right Footwear: Your choice of sneakers or boots can significantly impact your overall look. Invest in classic white sneakers, we love thrifting and finding old school Nike Dunks or Converse for a more casual vibe. Go for rugged boots, such as Doc Martins or Weather friendly LL Beans for a more outdoorsy style. The rule should be that your shoes should be comfortable (don’t just go for fashion and trend, be comfy).
