The temperatures are finally dipping back into Fall like numbers here in Buffalo, and while white girls everywhere are salivating for Pumpkin Spice lattes, UGG Boots and leggings, us men are looking for some simple Fall transition pieces to add to our wardrobe to keep things comfortable while still looking good.
Patagonia Better Sweater Fleecen Jacket – Patagonia has been making a huge comeback in the menswear scene both for their retro looks and social/economic responsibility. While cardigans and blazers are great for Fall, sometimes a lightweight fleece is all you need to handle the outdoors. $139
Ketchup N’ Mustard Steak & Whiskey Tee – Graphic Tees have also been making a big comeback this past season, and I think you’d be hard pressed to find one as manly as this Steak & Whiskey Tee from LA-based Ketchup N’ Mustard. Apparently their online store will be up and running soon, and this will be the first of many purchases from this brand.
J.Crew 484 Denim – J.Crew has finally listened to what their customers want with a truly slim fitting (but not too slim), tapered jean. Using Japan-sourced denim, the jeans are hand-distressed to look like they’ve been worn for years so you can finally give up on trying to break in your selvedge denim. $125
Brixton Messer Fedora – With all the fedora talk we’ve been featuring on the blog lately, I had include this handsome and very affordable fedora from Brixton. The moss colorway is prefect for Fall. $52
Red Wing Penny Loafers – While Red Wings are synonymous with work boots, they also make a handsome penny loafer which utilizes their famous vibram sole for superior comfort. $348
L’Occitane Vetyver Eau de Toilette – Lastly, Fall is the perfect time to add a new scent to your repertoire and our current favorite comes from an unexpected (but none the less awesome) source: L’Occitane En Provence. Their Vetyver scent contains deep, woody aromas of vetyver, cedar wood and nutmeg. $58
