Serious Seasonal Protection

We don't remember this cheery time of year as being so brutal outside. And even though it's affectionately referred to as a "wintery mix," this bitter combination of wind, snow and freezing rain makes us want to forgo style and pile on thick layers of Gore-tex. One area often neglected by the style-conscious man is the wrist. Well-tailored jacket sleeves stop just above and a pair of slim leather gloves stop just below it—exposing a very sensitive pressure point and chilling your outer extremities to the bone. Which is why we like these gloves by Club Monaco. Styled like a leather bomber jacket, they're cut from wool-lined calfskin for a snug fit and have a warm knit cuff that ensures your gloves stay tucked under your coat's sleeves and your wrists stay covered and thus, warm.

$89 at Club Monaco

  • Don't dry wet leather gloves on or near a heater. It will crack the skin.
