The Real McCoy's CPO Shirt

Words

CPO shirts are one of the best pieces to have around. They're warm, they look good and they can work well for about 3/4 of the year. Engineered Garments make my favorite version, but this fall The Real McCoy's made a great reproduction. With heavyweight wool, a nicely sized collar and pocket, it stays very true to the original, which is just what you want with an item like this.

Editor's Essentials

—01. Red Wing Chukka.

Words

Every season, or year, there are a few pieces that I tend to wear all of the time. These three items are pretty standard for me to be wearing 5 days a week lately. The Red Wing chukkas were tough to figure out my sizing originally, but now that they are broken in, they've quickly become one of my favorite pairs of shoes. The color is great, the weight and silhouette is nice and they go with pretty much everything. Everything, meaning oxford BD shirts and 12 oz sweatshirts. I consider the Engineered Garments Workaday oxfords and Real McCoy's sweatshirts both best in class, so I have a hard time wearing anything else.

The Real McCoy's: Fall Goods

—01. Fall items from The Real McCoy's.

Words

Although we still have a couple more items and a couple pieces to be re-stocked from The Real McCoy's, I am always excited to look, touch and wear this brand. The quality is second to none, it fits great and works for anybody. There isn't one piece that we have from McCoy's that I don't personally like and couldn't wear with several others that we have. The M-65 jacket is especially nice, along with the great sweatshirts.

Look: Winter Ready

—01. All items available at the Inventory Stockroom except the J.Press socks.

Words

It feels like winter is around the corner as fall has become a little windier, a little rainier and a lot more chilly. Warm layers and a protective shell are essential, along with tough footwear and solid accessories. There are a lot of sweatshirts and technical jackets on the market this season, but you can't really beat either of these pieces, especially when paired together.

Illustrated Example: The Real McCoy's Grey Sweatshirt

Words

"When the temperature drops, most people pull out the knitwear, but sometimes knitted pieces can feel a little too smart. A plain sweatshirt is the perfect way to forgo formality without sacrificing any warmth. Navy and black are good, but there’s something about grey. Like the white t-shirt, the grey sweatshirt is definitive; that timeless piece that any brand with a sense of American sportswear history does really well. Details vary, as do tone, weight and texture, but versions by The Real McCoy’s, Warehouse and Wilson are among some of the best."

We've just received stock of the fall version from The Real McCoy's and it's one of the finest sweats we've seen. The fleece is sturdy and comfortable and the color and fit is perfect.

The Real McCoy's x Champion

01

—01. Made in USA; available in white and grey.

Words

Simple and plain, at least at first glance. I now know from experience that making something really good, that's seemingly simple and straight forward, is not really that easy. The Real McCoy's have mastered it however, and whether they have a difficult time or not, the end product is always incredible. Whether it's their own grey sweatshirts, the watch caps or these Champion t-shirts, I find myself continually impressed with what appear to be very unimpressive items. These heavy weight loopwheeled Champion tees are made in the USA, feel amazing and fit great.

Look: From the Stockroom

01

Words

As more and more fall products continue to arrive at the Stockroom, I thought it would be nice to put together a look from the shop once in awhile. We plan on photographing somebody wearing these looks in the future, but haven't found a model just yet. In the meantime, this outfit is simple, comfortable and ideal for the fall. I did have to throw in some socks from J.Press to complete the look, but everything else is currently available from us.

The Real McCoy's Chino Pants

—01. Blue Seal chinos.
—02. 45 Civilian chinos.

Words

A lot of people look forward to fall to start breaking in new denim, but the pants I'm most excited to put some wear into is the Blue Seal chino from The Real McCoy's. The cotton twill used is very tough and quite thick. The stitching, button fly and interior details are subtle and considered, and the straight cut combines really well with boots, a military jacket or thick knit. We have two versions available at the moment and both feel like they could stand up to anything come winter.
