From Kenneth Haas, Mason Custom Stylist
"I always look forward to the increased opportunity for sartorial nuance that cold weather months provide. There's an added dimension - an X factor, that unlocks space for creativity and character."
Step Outside of Your Comfort Zone
“Expand your perspective of fashion by exposing yourself to a diversity of styles. Start slow and with one item at a time. This exposure will help you better illuminate and refine your own style preferences.”
Tip: Substitute a turtleneck sweater for the standard white button-down
Look for Stylish Inspiration
“Mason Custom has deep roots in our love of soccer. One of the sport’s fashion titans is Andrea Pirlo, a Renaissance man on and off pitch. He played the game with the intelligence and finesse of an artist. Off the field, he’s the quintessential embodiment of effortless Italian style and sophistication.”

Mix Up Patterns & Textures
“Fall provides a welcome excuse to cast a gaze across the pond towards classic British wools and tweeds, such as the cherished herringbone and houndstooth patterns.”
Tip: Choose a dark suit with a rich pattern to ease into a unique style.
Elevate a Standard Look with Minor Changes
“The classic suit can transform into an expression of your personality with a few minor changes. Add a pocket square that pops. Try wearing shoes without socks. Substitute Adidas Stan Smith’s to dress down after work or on the weekend. Choose pants without belt loops. Go for an unexpected pattern or texture.”
