I really do love how menswear has evolved that last couple of years. While it still might move at a much slower place than our female counterparts, you can tell the change in the small details such as the style of pants on the market. Straight leg chinos, jeans, and dress pants once reigned supreme, but the shift in silhouettes, materials, and colors is here. Check out some of my current favorite trousers above.

Second only to Leather Weather, Sweater Weather is my favorite time of the year. You don’t sweat through your shirts and you don’t have to worry about accidentally leaving your coat at the clurb. It truly is the most magical time of the year, folks. Whether you’ll wear them dressed up, with sweats, or at your deposition appointment, these chunky knits  are a staple for every dude’s closet. Check out some of my favorite mens sweaters from East Dane above.

You might be asking yourself “How did homeboy go from wearing a simple bomber look to dressing like a homeless person who’s read too many Japanese streetwear zines?” 1) That’s mad rude and 2) Because variety is the spice of life. (Or at least that’s what the fortunate cookie I had last night said.) Textures, textures, textures. That’s what’s it all about people, well mixing them that is. I’m no stranger to dubiously pairing pieces together, but I encourage you to do so as well this season. Also socks and sandals are still a thing for me and this new collab from Teva and Woolrich both proves that point and give me a new go to set don until the frigid cold comes. (I have to draw a line somewhere, folks.) Go forth with mixing textures and rocking your socks and sandals. The only thing you should be embarrassed about this season is ordering anything pumpkin flavored while in public.

Fall Aesthetic

Wearing: H&M

Even though I feel like NYC totally didn’t get a real summer, trust that I couldn’t be happier to welcome in the cooler temps. While my summer look consisted of throwing on a different printed short sleeve shirt every morning, I wanted to bring it back to basics for my fall uniform. When H&M asked me to show off my ideal Autumn fit, I had to skip the typical tones of the season and head straight to my neutral blacks, whites, and grays. (This is New York after all.) The piece that hold this outfit together is this insane bomber. Besides a trusty leather jacket, you’ll only need a good bomber to survive the season ahead. This black on black joint is perfect for the transitional season like this or can be used with a beautiful layered look down the line. What more can a guy ask for? (Well besides a penthouse, unlimited bottles of champagne and a black card.)

What are your go to’s this fall?
