Get The Look: Autumn Leather In Central Park & MR PORTER ‘s Global Style Campaign


While a leather jacket can look good almost anytime of the year, brown leather shines like no other when surrounded by November’s colorful foliage in New York’s Central Park. I styled my favorite vintage leather jacket with other shades of brown. A classic pair of tan J.Crew cotton-twill chinos contrast the dark brown jacket in a smart manner, and fall styling calls for a pair of rugged boots. This simple pair from Grenson adds a stylish body to the classic derby boot with a scotch grain leather.

To break the brown hues, and standout one it’s own, a rich burgundy crew neck sweater is a wardrobe essential (as the color can look good year-round), and to top off the look on a sunny day, can’t go wrong with Ray-Ban aviators.

Get The Look:

Jacket: Vintage (similar from Belstaff)
Sweater: Banana Republic Blended Sweater (similar from J.Crew)
Pants: J.Crew Cotton-Twill Chinos
Footwear: Grenson Hadley derby boot
Sunglasses: Ray-Ban Aviators (similar from Ray-Ban)

Preview: Grenson Shoes Spring/Summer 2014


A heritage shoe brand, Britain’s Grenson Shoes is renowned for its craftsmanship and high-quality footwear since its foundation in 1866. Today, creative director and CEO Tim Little continues to uphold traditional manufacturing, like the “Goodyear Welted” process (a time-consuming technique from the 1800s that gives the shoes their long life and easy repair), and keeps up with trends by producing footwear in contemporary styles and colors—in addition to their core line of well-loved classics.

Earlier this week, Little and the rest of the Grenson team were at New York’s Hotel On Rivington to showcase the upcoming spring/summer 2014 collection. Among the classic, year- round styles (on the glass shelves below), new color options and additions to the growing brand include a twist on the sneaker/shoe hybrid, a colorful and essential summer derby, blue soled shoes (above), and the introduction of a canvas tote, backpacks and a messenger briefcase that join the leather and suede carry alls (introduced earlier this year).
