Steve Jobs Almost Killed The Turtleneck

What I'm Wearing

Coat from Theory     Turtleneck from Uniqlo     Boots ( similar) from Ankarifloruss

Mention wearing a turtleneck and someone close by will throw out a Steve Jobs joke of some sort. The man tucked a black turtleneck into light washed dad jeans and wore it every damn day of his life, and for that dedication I commend him! But it is possible to wear this winter staple with just a hint more style, and a lot less comparisons to Mr Jobs. I shot the look above in Brooklyn in front of a garage covered in graffiti, and tried to match the mood with a more urban style. I wanted the turtleneck to be the center piece of the outfit, so I framed it in all black everything.

The Black Leather Jacket

What I'm Wearing

Leather Jacket from Theory     Jeans ( similar) from Levis     Boots from John Varvatos     Hat (similar) from Topman

The leather jacket is a menswear staple, and a style icon in its own right. Seen on the backs of some of the biggest names in Hollywood, professional sports, and even the business world, the leather jacket is a wardrobe must have. A leather jacket is an investment, like a great watch or fine wine, it gets better with age and is something to be savored and enjoyed. Below are links to a few of my favorite leather jackets at different price points:

$100-$300 range     $400-$800 range   $1000-$3000   $4000+ range
