Winter time in the city is not like any other type of winter there is. Instead of snow, there’s slush, and it’s filthy. Instead of snowflakes on the road, there are layers of sodium chloride. In the city, the beauty of winter weather lasts until the first car passes through. We got the guys in the office together and rounded up some of our staff selections to armor you through the nastiest of winters while still maintaining style.
So, let’s start from the ground up…
1. Anonymous Ism Slub Crew Sock ($22)
Why: Because you need socks in the winter, period. Your toes and your girlfriend will thank you.
2. Yuketen Maine Guide Boot ($396.99)
Why: Because the 7.5″ 100% American-sourced naked leather shaft keeps the elements out and the Vibram Christy sole keeps you from busting your butt. They’re hand stitched and made in the USA. They’re also on sale right now, act fast.

5. Corter Leather Co. Bottle Hook in White ($36.50)
Why: Because the last thing you want to be doing when you can’t feel your fingers is searching for your keys. It’s white because the snow is anything but that in the city. Also, cold beer still tastes good even when it’s cold out.
