5 Days, 5 Ways: Winter White Cords for Guys
the perfect 5 pocket for cold weather months
We’ve almost made it through ALL of No Jeans January! Just three more days to get you over the denim-free finish line…
Wearing white after Labor Day doesn’t hold the same stigma as it did in the days of yore. That being said, there is a particular shade of white designed exactly for those who do want to follow the old school rules, aptly named ‘winter white’ – creative, I know! Softer than the crisp, clean white of summer, winter white is a few shades closer to ivory but works just as well as a neutral base. Our favorite way to see you guys wear it? Cords, of course! The cozy touch of cords lends itself perfectly to the warmth of winter white.
Below, white cords for guys and 5 ways to wear ’em:
