For night owls, winter is the ultimate time of the year. The short days, long nights, and moody weather are the hat trick of ideal circumstances to cozy up and embrace the darkness. This creates the perfect environment to break out your long-awaited stylish winter garments from your closet to show them off. Drawing inspiration from the dark and cold winter itself, we’ve curated a nocturnal-themed wardrobe of some of our favorite cold-weather offerings.

Using Moose Knuckles’ head-turningly cool Biencourt Bomber as our wardrobe’s keystone, we’ve built a sartorial ensemble that embodies the style strengths that we associate with a dark winter night. Purpose-built, comfortable, and achingly stylish, these pieces are all made to make you look good, feel good, and drop jaws on any winter night. On their own, these all-black pieces can hold their own, but together, they create a noir symphony of suave sophistication.

Moose Knuckles Biencourt Bomber

Moose Knuckles’ Biencourt Bomber features Responsible Down Standard-certified 650FP 80/20 down insulation and a Bluesign-certified, water-repellent-treated cotton/nylon shell. Despite its stellar insulation, the Biencourt Bomber offers a contemporary and sleek silhouette and a slim-fit design that will show off your build rather than hide it like other jackets. It’s as comfortable as it is stylish, as fashionable as it is understated, and it just may be the ultimate jacket to wear this winter.

Purchase: $900

Patagonia Brodeo Beanie

The Brodeo Beanie is an everyday hat that’s easy on the eyes, cozy on the ears, and a pure delight to wear. Made from a warm blend of recycled wool and nylon, the beanie is a luxuriously comfortable and sustainable choice that will keep your head warm and insulated for the coming cold days. Its rib-knit design brings a nice layer of textural contrast to this ensemble as well.

Purchase: $35

Bellroy Lite Daypack

Winter wear, for all of its strengths, can be a bit on the bulky side, so to balance out our ensemble, we wanted to include the super lightweight Lite Daypack from Bellroy. Simply put, the Lite Daypack is an all-purpose backpack that covers virtually all of your storage needs while remaining light, durable, and easy to carry. Aside from being three times lighter than Bellroy’s other fabrics, the ripstop used to construct this ultra-cool backpack is made from 100% recycled PET plastic bottles, which makes this bag streamlined, stylish, and sustainable.

Purchase: $99

Moose Knuckles Trail River Scarf

A brand so nice we had to list them twice, it’s hard to stress the functionality of Moose Knuckles’ products because they’re just so gorgeous to look at. Scarves are an underrated and underutilized winter accessory, but when used well, they elevate your wardrobe to a whole other level. In particular, the Trail River Scarf features a sleek, double-knit design and a merino wool construction that will keep you both warm and looking great as you tackle the winter elements.

Purchase: $110

Vallon Howlin’ Sunglasses

Revamped classic aviators that are purpose-built for the outdoors, you can never go wrong with Vallon’s Howlin’ sunglasses to protect your eyes for the few hours of sunlight the winter day offers. They feature a rounded aviator silhouette crafted from premium materials, polarized lenses for reduced glare (something especially handy when driving on icy roads on a sunny day), and an optional head strap for sporty pursuits. Inside, outside, day, or even night, these shades toe the line of style and utility for all your winter needs.

Purchase: $113

Todd Snyder Slim Fit 5-Pocket Chino in Nightwatch

Todd Snyder and style are near synonymous at this point. The New York designer’s Slim Fit 5-Pocket Chino in the dark Nightwatch shade hybridizes the best features of denim and chinos, yielding a fantastic pair of pants. These chinos are crafted from garment-dyed twill that is durable yet slightly stretchy. Moreover, they sport a slim-fit design that’s casual yet elevated and refined. You can dress them up for semi-formal events or wear them out to your local watering hole, making them one of the most versatile pairs of pants in your wardrobe.

Purchase: $148

Danner 007 Tanicus Boots

Danner’s 007 Tanicus boots weren’t just featured in the latest James Bond movie, No Time to Die, they were also specifically designed with the world’s greatest superspy in mind. With their blacked-out coloring, elevated combat boot design, and ability to withstand the toughest conditions you’re likely to encounter, these boots alchemize tactical utility and rugged stylishness better than practically any other on the market.

Purchase: $180

Montblanc Summit 2+

Montblanc’s latest Summit 2+ smartwatch is as smart as it is stylish. The LTE-connected watch runs Wear OS by Google and features a fully customizable AMOLED display, exclusive Montblanc-designed health and fitness apps, and a slew of sensors including a barometer, VO2Max display, altimeter, and even a speedometer. While the Summit 2+ is a tech-forward offering, its black DLC-coated stainless steel case, sapphire crystal, and classic luxury watch styling set it apart from the usual smartwatch crowd.
