Winter Fashion Report: Eco-stylin'

Check out these hot winter men’s fashion tips for cold days. Check out these hot winter men’s fashion tips for cold days.

This winter, designers took a page from Boardwalk Empire and other retro muses to create looks that embrace the cold and channel every man's inner Dapper Don. For Rosebud Magazine readers, style is important, but not more important than a commitment to the environment. The trends featured here are stylin', sans the contribution to climate change, which makes the gentleman wearing them even sexier. But, if buying a seasonal wardrobe seems on the wasteful side, use this list for second-hand inspiration. Thrift-stores, eBay, and consignment shops are always stocked with classic winter coats and so much more.

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the hottest winter ever.

Bottoms up

Starting with footwear, and foregoing the leather, there are tons of snazzy shoes this season. Say goodbye to your TOMS and hello to chunky soles and classic blacks.

Don’t Sweat It

Men’s cardigans and warm, neutral-colored sweaters are everywhere this season. The Recycled Collegiate Cardigan works well over a button-down or a t-shirt. Best of all, the manufacturer used leftover fabric scraps and upholstery from factories in the U.S., so it’s 75% pre-consumer recycled cotton, 25% acrylic, and made fairly in Binghamton, New York.

Tweed Indeed

Overheard in a men’s store today, “I am raging for tweed!” Tweed rage might just be a touch better than road rage. Check out this great, thick tweed sweater by Hessnatur, a company that operates with humane sheep sheering guidelines. It is made with untreated wool and under fair-labor conditions in the U.K.

Deep Pockets

Turk + Taylor uses commercial fabrics as well as organic cotton twills. This pocket shirt jacket is of the latter variety. Not too sure if it is a light jacket or a button-down shirt, but either way, it’s pretty neat.

Good Jeans

Patagonia is probably one of the best brands to choose when purchasing environmental fashion. They lead the pack with corporate responsibility plans, used garment recycling, and sustainable textiles. Donate those skinny jeans to your local Goodwill and put on a pair of man pants. True, jeans may not be exactly debonair, but everyone needs a good pair right?

Apply a Coat

Nothing says elegant like a houndstooth print and neat tailoring. The Mad River jacket has both and uses recycled fibers, recycled polyester, and wool. Plus, it’s made in Canada.


Double Breasted

Without sounding too stuffy, double-breasted suits and coats are truly refined garments. On that note, this is Hemp Hoodlamb's version of a double-breasted pea coat, The Long P Coat. Hemp Hoodlamb are well-known hemp fiber pioneers operating out of Amsterdam. This coat is made of hemp and organic cotton.

It’s time to spruce up that wardrobe. No more cutesy green slogan tees; men’s eco-fashion isn't just organic cotton t-shirts anymore. It’s about cultivating a sophisticated style and keeping up a principled dedication to a sustainable lifestyle. That’s what makes a true gentleman.
