Mens Fall Fashion Preview: Five Pieces You Need for Fall 2009

September 8th, 2009

Guys, it’s time to start embracing Fall Fashion.  Key menswear trends include a strong Americana vibe that gives a nod to quirky British style.  Think preppy classics with special details - but details that don’t take themselves too seriously.  Our sartorial recommendation for the season?  Invest in classic pieces that will keep your look sharp not only for Fall 2009, but for Fall 2010 and beyond.  Here’s five pieces that you’ll want to have in your wardrobe for seasons to come:

The 3/4 Length Duffle Coat

How to wear it: Let a bit of color peek out from under your gray or navy cardigan.  Added bonus for you?  The extra soft waffle knit fabric.


The Slim Shawl Collar Cardigan

How to wear it: Wear this shawl collared cardigan over a slim fit shirt.  We love the texture of the cable knit pattern, which pairs nicely with other coarse textures like a medium wale corduroy.

    Ooh yes! All hail the cardigan!

    And while the fire-engine red duffle coat is a bit peacockish for my tastes, I could really be digging a guy wearing that in charcoal…

    The coat (yes to the red!), the layering tee and the jacket, I love. I don’t really care either way for the flannel - at least it’s cozy and touchable. But I just do not get the cardigan for guys. (And from the looks of guys around here, I’m the only one who feels this way!) It’s just not a strong look in my opinion.

    Thanks for this post!
