Maxim Office Style: Senior Editor Matt Berical

Editor Matt Berical, 31, layers up against an aggressively cold spring.

Spring is here—almost. The tilt of the earth says so. But the sun is unreliable, and that accounts for my layers today. I found this patterned scarf on sale at Zara for $30—a deal, considering it’s a long and heavy knit. My olive green coat is a collaboration designer Ian Velardi did with Gap, and is hands down my most prized piece of clothing. I can flip the high collar up like a noir detective, and it stands out from crowd of classic navy and black coats in every bar in NYC.

As for the rest: My suit is an Italian wool number from the J.Crew Ludlow Shop, my first adult clothing purchase. It’s breathable and slim and I throw it on a few times a week—far more often than I should, but it just fits so damn well. The pants are tailored a bit higher than normal because I’m 6’3″ and look like I was drawn by Craig Bartlett. The tie is from Tie Bar, which is the only place I buy my neckwear these days; there’s no better place to find a great tie for fifteen bucks. Layering, at least, is one upside to this unrelenting cold.
