With fall officially here, now is the time to put away the swimming trunks, flip-flops, and t-shirts and bundle up for some chillier weather this season.
For those who don’t know me pretty well, I have a background in retail in working at high-end stores such as the Banana Republic and Saks Fifth Avenue, as well as being considered a GQ-looking stylish guy that knows his fashion and how to be on point.
So don’t worry fellas, I won’t steer you wrong!
Below are my five must-have items to really help upgrade and take your wardrobe to the next level.
Merino turtleneck sweater: A must have for the fall, as it looks nice and classy, is light enough to throw it over a shirt and pair it with some dark denim, yet casual enough to wear it out on the cold and chilly night to your local coffee house.
Thanks to its soft texture, the ladies will no excuse, not to touch you.
M-65 field jacket: Whether you are currently in the service, or just want to rep the best and most powerful military in the world, the M-65 field jacket is the season’s must-have statement fashion accessory. It can be worn dressy or casual, paired with a turtleneck or ringer t-shirt, it gives the look of high-end sophistication with a military touch that enables you to channel you inner G.I. Joe.
Chelsea dress boots: Rugged. Tough. Classy. Stylish. That is how I would best describe the Chelsea boot. Suede or leather, this boot adds a touch of class to any wardrobe. As the owner of a couple of pairs of black and brown Giorgio Brutini’s, I can personally vouch for these stylish yet functional boots as upgrading any man’s style game.
Track jacket: Much to my wife’s chagrin, I have a serious track jacket collection. And you can’t blame me, as it may be this season’s most versatile fashion piece! It can be worn on cool nights to places such as the bar to support your fave club, high school football game or coffee house. It can be paired with almost anything from khakis to denim and it makes a sporty—yet stylish!—statement.
Anything plaid! Much like the hype for pumpkin spice, anything, and everything plaid will be en vogue from shirts, pants, ties, coats to suits. Look for plaid to be anywhere and everywhere all season. Be sure to be able to keep up and stay on fleek!
