GQ Selects: November Look #3

Today’s look centers around a fall/winter prerequisite: a warm and exceedingly dapper top coat. But we’re equally enthused by the finishing touches we picked to accentuate the official GQ selections—like Hav-A-Hank’s paisley pocket square (available in 8 eye-catching colors) and budget-wise gloves by Topman.

 

Michael Bastian Double-Breasted Houndstooth Top Coat. Every guy needs a great top coat this season. When done right, like this Michael Bastian number, it works for any occasion, from a black-tie ball to the office to weekend errands. Bastian’s is modernized by its slimmer peak lapels. The trim double-breasted silhouette ensures this coat will look good over any and all of your fall outfits.”
—Jim Moore, GQ Creative Director

Allen Edmonds ‘MacNeil’ Oxford. When we talk about wingtips at GQ we talk about them with a lot of passion and gravitas. A black wingtip is one of the most worthwhile and elegant shoes a man can have in his wardrobe. It stands up to dressier fall flannels but looks just as appropriate with a pair of khakis or corduroy jeans. This pair walks the line perfectly between being too chunky and too refined—the proportions are just right. They’re made in America, and with a little care, these will last 20 years. Guys can rest assured they will never go out of style.”
—Jim Moore, GQ Creative Director

Nordstrom’s picks to complete the look:
Hav-A-Hank Pocket Square | Brixton Driver’s Cap | Jack Spade Henley
Topman Burgundy Stripe Gloves | Obey Fingerless Gloves | Topman Navy Stripe Gloves

 

Each month, the editors of GQ, in collaboration with Nordstrom Men’s Fashion Director Tommy Fazio and the Men’s Shop, will select key items from the pages of GQ to feature right here on Nordstrom.com.

For the latest edition of GQ Selects, we’ve chosen 15 favorites from the November issue—from immaculate outerwear to unexpected accessories. Check back each month for more.

Boot Guide Part 1: The Wingtip


Soaked socks and soggy pant cuffs are not a good look. Luckily, our Fall Boot Guide launched this week, outlining 5 kinds of boots (Wingtip, Rugged, Vintage, Chukka, and Weather-Ready) that will help you conquer windchill on workdays and ice on weekend outings to your girlfriend’s favorite Christmas tree farm—all with style points to spare.

Fall is a good time to be guy. Crisp climates call for rugged tweeds, wools, cords, and all the classic trappings of old-world menswear—and nothing complements those rich textures better than a sturdy pair of boots.

Here are 3 stellar examples of our first boot category, the tough-but-polished Wingtip Boot.

Did you know Nordstrom began as a shoe store? John W. Nordstrom came to the United States in 1887 and, after cobbling together a modest sum in the Klondike gold rush, opened Wallin & Nordstrom shoes, with friend Carl Wallin, in Seattle in 1901.

Over the years, our founder handed down his avid dedication to the customer (and hands-on knowledge of footwear) to subsequent generations of the Nordstrom family. His great-grandsons still manage the company today—and all started their careers in the shoe stockroom.

Long story short: Shoes are in our DNA. And that’s never more apparent than during our biggest event of the year, Anniversary Sale, when we bring in stellar deals on Fall shoes from wingtips to high-tops. Peruse a few of our favorites below—spotted in the Shoe Shop at our flagship store in Downtown Seattle.
