Fall Wardrobe Essentials
Whether you're prepared or not, cooler weather is on its way. When the leaves start to change color and the air gets crisp that’s when you know Autumn has arrived. Time to pack away your summer pastels and light weight clothing and make room for these 5 wardrobe essentials that will help you be perfectly attired.
1. Cashmere blazer- in navy, charcoal, and/ or black
The ultimate in luxury and function, cashmere is one of the most sought after fabrics in the world. Cashmere is soft to the touch and warm to the body. Cashmere is an investment that any man will enjoy for years to come.
2. Fall sport coat with a subtle pattern that matches 2 or more trousers
Sport coat in fabrics like tweed, camel hair, and wool are essential for the cooler temperatures ahead. These fabrics will keep you warm and are staples in the cool weather wardrobe of a well-dressed man.
3. Navy and gray flannel suits
Flannel suits are a wonderful for men who live in cooler climates, like we do in the North East. A flannel suit is warm yet breathable, easy to move around in, and soft to the touch.
4. Gray and earth tone flannel trousers
These may be the most versatile trousers in a man’s wardrobe. They are heavy enough to keep your legs warm and light enough for daily wear. These pants can be worn dressed up or dressed down. Every well-dressed man should have a few pair of flannel trousers.
An overcoat is a coat to wear over your suits to keep you warm during those colder fall days. Your overcoat will keep you warm and flatter you. Long overcoats just below the knee are classic and can be both professional and dressy. A car coat length overcoat is above the knee and works over a suit or sport coat, but is also useful for weekend wear.
