Woollen Dreams

For the first time this summer we had the windows wide open all last night. The crisp cool fresh air seemed to signal the arrival of my favorite season. I woke in the middle of the night and pulled out a comforter…but kept the windows open. Such weather gets me thinking about wool. Yeah, I know you agree, it’s never too late to think about your autumn/winter gear. I never found a good wool coat last year, I started looking too late and ended up with a chain store monstrosity. I’m a bit inspired by Mark McNairy’s new approach for Woolrich Woolen Mills (Daiki Suzuki  of Engineered Garments is out).

Probably the Portland Collection by Pendleton Woolen Mills will be easier on the wallet, I’m digging this…seems well-fitted.

Check out the full lookbook here. I’m definitely going to stop by In God We Trust in Greenpoint to try it on. See below, the collection has a nice little backstory…
