Big Sean Shows "How to Dress For Winter Without a Coat" in the November Issue Of GQ

I take it G.O.O.D. Music rapper, Big Sean has been reading The X-Stylez Blog because we just covered this Monday... guess we know a little something (ha) 

Big Sean shows you “How to Dress for Winter Without a Coat” in the November 2012 issue of GQ magazine: 
Dressing well in winter can be tricky. The conundrum: How do you fight the big chill without getting deathly sick of your giant winter coat? Short answer: Leave the coat in the back of the closet as long as possible by learning to layer up.
The field vest, once thought of as a blue-collar staple for postal workers and Wichita linemen, is now office-ready, thanks to high-fashion designers like Belstaff and lower-cost hubs like Club Monaco. The vest’s lightweight quilting adds warmth without bulking up your flannel suit or that new tweed sports jacket you just snapped up.
1. Let the Collar Pop
This collar should spread its wings over your lapel for a flyer look. 

Vest, $395 by Belstaff. Suit by Club Monaco. Shirt by Gant Rugger. Tie by David Hart & Co. Tie bar by The Tie Bar. Hat by Grevi at Barneys New York. Watch (throughout) by Rolex.

2. Cop Some Copper
Navy is a safe bet, but copper and olive are unimpeachable fall classics. Bonus: A vest doesn't bulk up the slim sleeves of your jacket.

Vest, $150 by Woolrich Woolen Mills. Suit jacket by Ovadia & Sons. Shirt by J.Crew. Tie by Topman. Tie bar by The Tie Bar. Jeans by A.P.C. Hat by Aviator Nation.

3. Tuck Your Scarf
Never wonder what to do with the floppy scarf tail again. Tuck it into your field vest and you're fully bundled.

Vest, $275 by AllSaints. Scarf by Smart Turnout. Blazer by Burberry London. Sweater by A.P.C. Jeans by Saturdays NYC.

4. Suit Up! 
As mentioned in the blog post Monday, switch out that 3rd piece and freshen up your suit or suit separate with a thin vest. It completely changes the look.  

Vest, $170 by Club Monaco. Suit by Michael Kors. Shirt by J.Lindeberg. Tie by Nobis. Pocket square from KSI NYC.
