8 Things You Need for the Cold Season

  The air is crisp, the sun is shy and the terasen gas bill is up. One thing is for sure, it’s cold as hell and this season, you’d best be in your best bling, spicing things up when the temperatures finally hit sub-zero. Here are 8 things you need to get it right, so listen up.
1. Bling-ass shearling jacket
Fur coats are so 2011, don’t even try it. Instead, invest in a warm snuggly shearling coat. It screams “ I’m pimpin’ and I’m pimpin’ in style” The 100% Lamb Leather Ian Shearling in Brown is your best best for this type of look. With side buckles and leather taped seams, this piece should last you a lifetime and through all the sorts of sizes that you will eventually get to become. You best be pimpin’ if you ought to buy this jacket at $2 400
2. Animal print shtuff
The Americas are freezing right now and Africa is still quite warm. Why don’t you take a bit of Africa to your hometown and add a sizzle to things, even just a little bit. Apparently, the people over at Burberry got the same cue so they’ve provided us with a few accessories to help us out a bit. It’s like one of those warming packets you get for camping. Thanks Burberry, we’re particularly in love with this duffel. Check with retailers like Mr. Porter for these awesome accessories.
3. Margiela Duds

Margiela is so it right now that it doesn’t matter what it is. Margiela is the way to go; ask Kanye. Alright, so the brand is known for some wildly “creative” processes which we deem to make some things even more useless, except for a few notable pieces. Trust us, we have your best interest at heart These Margiela x Converse classic sneakers, coated in a fresh (literally) coat of paint will sure get you that hypebeast fix, even while staying utilitarian in universal white.
4. Checked pants bruv

   Let’s take a quick stroll down memory lane back circa mid-2008. We know what you’re thinking, checked tops, checked tops in every colour of the rainbow, checked tops for days. That’s okay, we don’t mind. At _____ we are fully pledged believers of Newton’s “What comes up must come down.” Amen to that brother, so why don’t we take all of those checks and wear them as pants. It’s the cool thing now, and we’re sure that Sir Isaac agrees. Try this cool pair from Zara for a playful yet finished look.
5. Gray

  As of late, colour was being pushed by designers onto mens’ wardrobes like a pushy Asian mother getting her son through medical school. This one’s for all of those poor Asian boys. Prove that you’re too cool for school with an entirely gray ensemble. Bomb that tuition fee with this Jil Sander Blazer in brushed wool. It’s precisely cut for your scrawny rice-fed Asian body with cutting edge technology to add some heft into that thing. At least momma gets to see you looking like a sharply dressed doctor.
6. Chelsea Boots
  Impress Chelsea with nothing more than her namesake, or maybe not. These are reserved for those boys that are more comfortable with their inner being. Rest assured, that you get a special nod from us here at Stilo Dorito, as well as your new-found brethren trying to pull off the same look. Are you brave enough to join the club? If so, then you ought to buy the original catalyst to the movement. These Saint Laurent boots are perf! Here is a higher alternative and Zara creates a mean “replica”, check out your local stores.
7. Borg collar yo
Maybe you’re a bit of a shy one and you don’t wanna roll up in the biggest snuggliest comfiest pelt of animal skin known to man, and risk a few stares. You can still share a bit of the warmth with a nice casual borg collar on a Vancouver staple: the denim jacket. We here at  Stilo Dorito don’t discriminate on financial stature; we fully recognize that great style can come from any price point. At $60, you can’t go wrong with this ASOS denim jacket in that versatile blue wash. It’s like taking a trimming out of that Acne shearling.
8. Suit down
Sienna Blue Stripe available at Suitsupply
Gone should be the days that your best was a mix and match suit from the crusty old corner at your local Sears known as the clearance section. Suits really aren’t that big of a deal any more now that you’re a young urban professional (or at least we presume). Try pairing this on-trend pinstripe two piece suit with more casual white trainers to show your boss who’s boss. It might get you that promotion….or demotion. Either way, look who’s way cooler than the boss.
