I hope my footwear recommendations have you thinking about what you can continue to wear this fall and some new pieces you may need to add to our rotation. Let’s move on over to the rest of your wardrobe. I’m fired up for fall! So many great designers to choose from… so let’s get started.
The men’s fashion industry seems to have new brands, collaborations, and exclusive releases daily. It’s like a full time job just to try and keep up with what’s happening next. One missed email and you might miss out on a piece you have been lusting after. I’ll be honest, I’m just as overwhelmed as everyone else. It can be difficult to sort the ‘crap’ from the stuff you really want to know about. There is no question social media has given a voice to… well… anyone. Anyone can launch a brand, create a replica, or create hype. I’ve narrowed my list of ‘mens designers to check out now’ to six. I wear all these guys and I’m even more excited about what they have coming for fall and winter…
We now have you dressed to kill for your night out… but we are still missing the bottom half. Although your ultimate goal may be to end up with your pants off, it may be good to start with them on… just saying.
Before we get started I’m going to assume a couple of things. If your reading this post, you know something about my daily style. If not, check out my daily looks on Instagram NOW! I’m not a big suit and tie guy or even a fan of having to dress up in general. I moved to California for a reason you know. Jeans are part of my daily uniform and casual attire is what I feel most comfortable in. That being said… there are many occasions in life which call for us men to dress up. I’m not talking about a wedding or a funeral. If you didn’t know you need a suit for those, your momma didn’t raise you right. But… how do we, as men, dress for nice a nice dinner out with our wife or girlfriend without wearing a suit? That’s been my issue as of late. I’m going to break this discussion into three posts. Today’s is your top half, next week will be pants, and two weeks from now, shoes. I’ve got three suggestions that have worked well for me on what to wear on your top, so here we go.
Want to feel like you’re a fighter pilot… or maybe just look the part?
I will start things off with my new one from John Elliott + Co
These jackets are all the rage right now and I’m totally on board. Don’t buy them too slim – they look amazing with some layers and a hoodie underneath.
