10 Things You Need to Add to Your Wardrobe This Fall

Fall always provides a great opportunity for men to refresh their look. After a warm summer, it’s time to say hello to layers and try something new. From texture to a ’70s inspired look, there are so many great trends this season. Here are ten must-have pieces for the fall. From overcoats to accessories, you need at least one, but preferably all, of these pieces in your closet for an on-fleek season.

1. Alternative Blue Industry Chambray Shirt

The pictures don’t do justice to the coolness of Alternative’s Chambray Shirt in blue. You really have to see it in person. This subtly textured yet soft button-down shirt is a better alternative (no pun intended) to typical denim and looks great with jeans.

2. Ferragamo Parigi Driving Shoes in Grey

If you wear Salvatore Ferragamo’s Custom Parigi Drivers, you will probably stop traffic. Certainly an investment, the grey suede color combined with dark hardware is hard to resist. If these shoes are a little bold for you (or not bold enough), Ferragamo will now let you design your own pair and choose the material (suede, leather, ostrich, etc.), color, hardware, and more.

3. Gant Shawl Collar Sweater

Adding texture to a knit sweater takes it from the same old thing to interesting. Shawl collars are also a great look and a nice break from typical pullovers or V-necks. Gant’s Textured Cotton Shawl Collar Sweater combines those too elements into one stylish knit that will look good on any man.

4. Gucci Double-Breasted Shearling Coat

Shearling is hot right now because it’s good at keeping you warm. Gucci’s Double-Breasted Shearling Coat is designed in the vintage-looking 1970s style that is so on trend this season. From the color to the length, everything about this jacket is perfect.

5. Officine Generale Overcoat

This season it’s all about texture. This tweed overcoat by Officine Generale is made of 100% wool and looks sharp over a dress shirt and pants. The length will keep you warm, yet it’s still easy to move around in. If you need some more polished outerwear for the office or special occasions, this is for you.

6. Barneys New York Long Scarf

7. Topman Burgundy Ultra Skinny Pants

8. Sid Mashburn Cashmere Sweater

Available in striking, bold colors including Pine, Sky, Lake, and several shades of grey, you might want to buy all of them.

9. Uri Minkoff Fulton Briefcase

Uri Minkoff is designer Rebecca Minkoff’s new men’s line named after her brother, who is also president of the company. The Fulton Briefcase is practically a necessity. It’s modern but oh-so classic. If you’re sick of the same old black or brown leather, rock this briefcase in Cognac.
