“There’s always an undercurrent of military influence in Todd Snyder’s collections, and what’s so great about this parka is that it takes a basic item but amps it up in the color of the season, safety orange. It’s the ideal transitional jacket because of the removable lining, plus it’ll keep you dry in inclement weather. The fit is what sells it though, slim enough to wear over a just a henley but with enough room for a sweater or sports jacket. And obviously, the price—$178—is right.”
—Garrett Munce, fashion editor
Plaid shirts have been everywhere for the past few years, but there is a new batch out there amping up traditional patterns in a fresh way. Todd Snyder’s classic button-down offers a basic plaid, but renders it in an eye-catching white and navy with sky blue and red accents. It’s a seven-day-a-week shirt that would pop under a charcoal gray suit, or with a pair of cords and a cardigan to watch the big game.
We strongly believe in the wool cargo pant this season at GQ. This pair from Todd Snyder is part of the new breed out there, cut slimmer than their standard-issue inspiration, but rendered in a seasonal weight wool. Think of these as your new chinos. The pants match up with everything a pair of tailored khakis would, but add a dose of military edge that feels right for fighting through the colder months.
