New at Oak: Chambray Shirt, Electric Moto JacketBy Meieli Detoni
Oak finds! Oh, how fun. My weekly Oak stalking resulted in finding two nice “just in” pieces on the site: the Cold Method Navy Pieced Chambray Shirt, and the Electric Moto Jacket. One will be useful just as soon as it arrives at your doorstep (spring showers, unexpected gusty weather), and the chambray shirt can be worn on its own or layered come those cold-in-the-morning summer days that later get scorching. Unlike the nylon, your chambray from Oak is 100% cotton–breathable!–and has great drape. Don’t forget that you can pop that chambray into the dryer with a sheet or two to get it softer, and that it will get smoother and softer with age.
Oak’s Cold Method nylon jacket is a keeper for a long time to come. It’s black, has two front welt pockets, and a pocket on the upper left arm. Totally classic, and something that, just like the chambray shirt from the same designer, should come in handy for future seasons as well. If you’re in a more temperate climate, you’ll be singing this jacket’s praises three seasons out of the year. Cold Method delivers! [chambray is $136 at oak; electric moto jacket is $256]
