Get In Touch: The Best Fleece For Fall
Get In Touch: The Best Fleece For Fall

How to stay warm, all season long.
When life’s pace picks up to match the crisp and invigorating breeze of fall in the city, how do we unwind? Patty Ratermann and Lex Kendall, a Brooklyn power couple making bold moves in their respective careers, have a simple solution — they get in touch with nature.  

Lex, a serial entrepreneur, is the founder and COO of New Stand, a chain of boutique convenience stores that curates both elevated essentials as well as daily content. Patty is a model-turned-business owner who is launching her bakery, Patti’sserie, this fall. To keep their energy in balance, the duo splits their time between a place in Williamsburg during the workweek and a cozy weekend home in verdant Upstate New York.

Here’s how they wear UNIQLO Fleece to dial down the tempo from weekday urban upbeat, to weekend rustic retreat.

Wrapping Up The Workweek

With Patty’s busy schedule, she’ll take business meetings up until the last minute before heading upstate for the weekend. Our light and elegant Fleece Long-Sleeve Coat is an easy outer layer to instantly raise the chic factor of any outfit. It makes for a put-together and professional impression and is warm enough to catch a pleasant fall breeze while closing a deal at the outside seats of her favorite café.

Running his own company, Lex also has plenty of places to be and things to do before checking out. Forgoing the need to lug around a heavier jacket, the HEATTECH Fleece Mock Neck Long Sleeve Shirt provides functional warmth and moisture-wicking comfort for a stylish casual Friday look. Plus, the slim profile is easy to layer under a tailored, client-facing jacket. 

Packing Up To Go

Patty and Lex tie up a few loose ends before saying see you later to their Williamsburg pad. Their pup, Finlay, needs a good stretch before the drive. Patty opts for versatile and weatherproof BLOCKTECH Fleece Pants for a quick walk around the neighborhood with Finlay. The soft fleece lining makes it easy to step out in style and get moving in chilly temps.  

These warm and stretchy pants are also extra comfortable and perfect for travel. After packing up the bags and loading up the car, they ensure that Lex is in for an easy drive to their weekend retreat. 

Orchard Hopping Upstate

For hardworking urbanites like Lex and Patty, part of the appeal of heading to the country for a few days is the array of fun outdoor activities that don’t exist in a city center. 

Wearing our sleek BLOCKTECH Fleece Pile-Lined Long Sleeve Hoodie to cut the chill, Patty dreams of the handmade apple pies she’ll be baking later as she gathers fresh seasonal fruit at a local orchard. The high collar provides function and fashion, retaining warmth and creating a flattering silhouette. 

Meanwhile, Lex has Jack O’ lanterns — or perhaps another fall-themed homemade dessert — on his mind. His supple and smooth Pile-Lined Fleece Full-Zip Jacket balances superior warmth, ease of movement, and mod style, making the transition from indoor to outdoor activities as simple as (pumpkin) pie. 

Getting In Touch With The Outdoors

To ease the tempo after a packed week in the city, Patty likes to fully unplug and get lost in the pages of a book. Our cozy, suede-like Pile-Lined Fleece Long Sleeve Coat has a feminine design and warm fleece interior, so Patty can stay warm, curl up, and relax with her novel out in the open air. 

Lex unwinds by getting active. An avid mountain biker and hiker, our lightweight and stretchy Fleece Long Sleeve Full-Zip Jacket is his trusty standby for outdoor adventuring. The functional zipper-front design lets him regulate his body temperature as he warms up and breaks a sweat out on the trail. 

Enjoying Life’s Simple Pleasures

Life in the city is exciting and complex, whereas country living can be beautifully simple. Lex and Patty go upstate together to tap into that low-key energy, and to simply enjoy the moment. 

Patty gets in the zone cooking up a delicious, homemade meal for an al fresco dinner with Lex on their porch. The peace, quiet, and farm-fresh ingredients are also a mine of inspiration for her in-the-works bakery business back in the city. Our Fluffy Fleece Full Zip Long Sleeve Jacket keeps her warm while she’s experimenting in the kitchen, and extra huggable for getting cozy under the stars after dinner. 

As a counterpoint to his entrepreneurial business routine in New York, Lex likes to work with his hands when he’s enjoying a simpler life upstate. Our breathable and weatherproof BLOCKTECH Fleece Long Sleeve Full-Zip Hoodie braces him against the evening breeze when he gets to work chopping his own wood for the fireplace at their upstate home away from home.
