We are so excited that Games of Thrones premieres April 1st. Thus, we had our resident HBO expert and dear friend Jacob Klein jump in to write a guest article about some Game of Thrones style.
When he isn’t protecting the realms of men from wildlings, white-walkers, and other terrors threatening the kingdoms of Westeros, Kit Harington still manages find a little time for fashion. In the latest edition of Men’s Journal, Kit – aka Jon Snow on HBO’s fantasy epic Game of Thrones – shows off some of the latest trends in men’s casual wear. Here are some of the highlights:
This single-breasted trench is lightweight and has a modern cut that even a brother of the Night’s Watch could appreciate. It’s resin-coated so you’ll stay protected from Seattle’s frequent showers, something not always common on a coat as stylish as this.
John Varvatos Trench
Long patrols beyond The Wall can chill a man to the bone, but this striped merino wool crewneck sweater will not only stave off winter’s breath, it’ll also keep you cozy. The sweater is purportedly softer than your average wool garment. The Henry sweater will set you back $220, but what could be more worth it than absolute warmth and comfort? It doesn’t look half bad on Lord Sno…err… Kit either.
The awkward look on Kit’s face just screams “this one’s for you, ladies!” Let’s face it guys, we don’t spend much time thinking about our ‘small clothes’ but I assure you – the ladies do! Mr. Harington is rocking a pair of boxers from Gap that have a great cut and only move when you do. They also have the added benefit of being extremely affordable at $12.50 a pair. And you only need like, what… 3 pair total? Jon Snow’s oath may prevent him from getting too close to the wenches, but I assume you’ve taken no such vow and the woman(en) in your life will thank you for having a few backup pairs of these presentable boxers from Gap.
