New Name: The Smooth Company

Another new brand for fall, The Smooth Company specializes in combining sharp tailoring with casual dressing. We subscribe to the idea that 99% of any look depends upon the fit and with smartly cut clothes like this, it's hard to not look good even when you're dressed down.

Spain jacket, $200

A cotton jacket for winter? Why not, when it’s coated and comes with a snap on/off hood? Zipper front with a storm placket, snap close neck tab, snap tab cuffs to keep out the cold, and four snap front pockets for all your things. Fully lined in 100% cotton with an inside chest pocket.

Axe shacket, $110

This thick and tough shirt jacket takes a casual dressing staple and does it up with refined tailoring elements. Epaulettes, barrel cuffs, back box pleat, and two front button-down chest pockets make it seem like just another shirt, but the button-down placket hides a zipper for an edge when you want it. Make no mistake, this cotton piece is thick enough to keep you warm on brisk nights and double-stitching all over makes this feel like the most substantial shirt you’ll ever own.

Castaway Peacoat, $220

It’s been a great season for coats and The Smooth Company’s peacoat keeps the trend going. A soft wool/viscose blend double-breasted coat comes loaded with all the little details that a guy needs: epaulettes, gun patch at the shoulder, snap tabs at the sleeves, button-down handwarmer pockets, single rear vent, and an interior chest pocket. The snap tab at the neck provides that extra little bit of coverage to keep you warm.

Gun jacket, $150

Thick herringbone twill gives this jacket equal parts texture and toughness. A button-down front meets a hook-and-eye closure at the neck and a strap closure at the hem for fit. Pieced shoulder construction, zippered waist pockets, and four flap chest pockets combine function with smart tailoring. Fully lined in cotton with an inside chest pocket.

Dapper short-sleeved button-down, $85

Imagine how pleased we were to see a shirt that shared out name! And it certainly lives up to our expectations with a button-down collar, pieced shoulder, back box pleat, functional sleeve buttons, contrast logo embroidery at the chest pocket, and an inner collar lining. A great piece to stay dressed down even as you’re getting bundled up.

Smooth jean, $98

A straight leg, five-pocket jean with tonal stitching all throughout for a sleek, understated silhouette.

Francine Trouser, $125

A classic trouser if ever there were one. Light grey cotton straight leg pants with 1% stretch for fit. Two front slash pockets and two back welt pockets, tonal logo embroidery at back pocket.
