GQ Selects: November Look #4

Here’s a great example of going high/low by mixing activewear into your around-town wardrobe. Thanks to a trim fit and clean design, this Nike track jacket blends seamlessly with a high-end shirt, loafers, and cords in the season’s coolest color.


Nike ‘HBR’ Track Jacket. This is a great example of a throwback piece that doesn’t feel overly retro. Nike’s classic ‘HBR’ track jacket conjures up images of ’70s track stars like Steve Prefontaine and Bruce Jenner, but it has a sleekness to it that’s quite current. It’s a versatile piece, wearable either alone or layered under a topcoat or a suit jacket, as we showed on Jeremy Lin in the November issue.”

Shipley & Halmos Washed Cotton Woven Shirt. The exploded, repeating windowpane plaid on this shirt is a bold pattern, but one that would look great peeking out of a classic navy suit or cardigan. It’s designed with a semi-spread collar, too, so it can easily transition from dressed-up with a tie to casually unbuttoned at a bar.”
