Suede patches for the discerning hoody wearer
Some of us here at Hoodywink are approaching a certain time in our lives when suede patches are simply irresistible. So, when we wandered across the suede patch hoody from Rag & Bone New York some of us were ready to grow a Copstash Standard, pack a Woodstock and drink single malt in the shed.
Thankfully Rag & Bone’s Marcus Wainwright and David Neville are infinitely cooler than our stab at middle-aged humour. They have created a brand that beautifully combines classic tailoring with contemporary New York styling.
Even better Wainwright and Neville are British expats and there is a certain gentlemanly swagged about their collections. They have looked to long established local manufacturers to put expert craftsmanship and attention to detail into their clothing – and it shows.
Granted, the suede patch hoody will set you back $325 and is dry clean only but it does have 100% goat suede on the elbows – and it’s to die for.
