We had our first true cold snap this weekend, which means one thing: it's time to take out the winter gear (hats, mittens, and all.) To prevent area men from becoming marshmallows this season, we asked Jason Smith, vice president of merchandising at Trunk Club, to give us some advice on bundling up in style—even during a hectic travel week. Here's his six-part style primer:

"I am actually writing this from 36,000 feet on my way to California to visit my brother. It got me thinking about other guys like myself who will not only be traveling over the holiday season, but will be experiencing massive changes in climate on those trips. A good portion of my family lives in California, and I often need to dress in such a way as to be comfortable on the flight, and equally as comfortable when I touch down in San Francisco or Chicago. I also don't want to weigh myself down with unnecessary bulk, or have to worry about checking a bag because my winter gear is taking up too much room. I focus on versatile layering, and when I head to the airport in Chicago, the outfit is composed of the same six items every time."

Oh, you want to see the six items? Read on.
