Southwestern patterns are popping up everywhere this summer, spurred by two collaborative Opening Ceremony collections, one with traditional Western clothing brand Pendleton and another with Rodarte in a Southwestern-themed line. Here it’s perfect for the city heat in bright orange.
This photo was taken on Monday, when the high temperature in Manhattan was 18 degrees. As the weather gets colder and colder, the throwback to the glory days of outdoor gear by Pendleton and L.L. Bean makes sense – though this outfit takes true grit to wear. Kudos to this guy for gutsiness.
The downtown/Brooklyn crowd has really embraced a retro preppy look of Bean-type snow boots, Pendleton jackets, and toggle coats for winter. Kudos not just for the style but for the practicality of this look – though I doubt Leon Leonwood Bean ever would have envisioned his rugged clothes as an urban must-have.
