You can never be too sure about what the weather will bring and Rapha has designed their new must-have piece for that very reason. Their Pro Team Softshell Base Layer can be worn under your gear to protect you from wet conditions while keeping a lightweight and breathable fabric structure.
They’ve also designed a complete line of Pro Team gear around the apparel including a set of softshell arm warmers and knee warmers, softshell gloves, and an overshoe that uses the same material as the base layer to keep it bulk-free, low-profile, and wind and water-resistant.
Pieces start at $ 80 and are available now at rapha.cc.

Soon-to-open Minneapolis boutique Wilson and Willys have released their own range of in-house apparel and it has definitely got our complete attention. The line currently features three styles and each piece is made right there in the good ol’ USA.
Our favorite piece, the Gridwax Anorak ($ 279), is stripped down to the 10oz gridwax canvas to create a three-season layer that you can wear on its own when its cool and layer on top of a sweater when it starts to get a colder. Other styles include two classic chore coats made from your choice of wool ($ 269) or waxed canvas ($ 289). More from Wilson and Willys at their online store at WilsonandWillys.com.
For 10 years now, Altru Apparel has been a go-to brand intelligent & inspired graphics. Recently, they’ve started delving more into outerwear, cut & sew, and trousers. It’s important to keep things fresh even in the winter months where you might be a little more lazy in terms of how you dress. Altru keeps things simple, yet refreshing & stylish, so you don’t have to put much effort into your outfits.
A couple staple pieces of theirs that will not only keep you warm, but incredibly cozy are the Life hoodie & Zig Zag sweats. These incredibly soft items are a must-have for this year’s cold weather months.
Layering is important during the winter, so preparation is key. Throwing on a nice button-down like this “Wavy” piece are great additions to any outfit. Getting too hot? Throw off that jacket to reveal a tailored-fit button-down, and you’ll have the females swooning.
Another great layering piece is this “Stripes” short-sleeve half button-down. Just in case you don’t want to overheat, this is a great option that keeps the aesthetic of a nicer shirt, but will help you stay cool & comfortable.
