Fresh New Menswear Brands to Know: Round 2

Every year, the dip of cold temps means ones thing: A layering call to arms. Mixing lengths, styles, and materials doesn't just keep you warm when you are out and about, but it adds an edge and versatility, especially with straightforward basics like twills shirts or quilted crew necks.

But don't think we're endorsing the old "leather jacket over a henley over a tee" philosophy. That's just not our style. We're talking about a whole new approach to layering—one that favors mixed media and doesn't sacrifice style in the name of practicality. To show you exactly what we mean, we raided the Nordstrom Men's Shop and its ultra-curated brands and labels, and then styled model Alexander Dominguez on his jaunt about town in true NYLON Guys fashion. Check out all the downtown-inspired looks below, then shop the editorial here.
