Swap out your sneakers for a pair of sturdy smart boots this season. The rainy season will not be so forgiving for the shoes you had worn throughout the summer season, you need to think about getting a more suitable style of footwear for the autumn and winter. Boots offer the best protection for your feet and the will be able to last the distance too. The most versatile boot style for autumn would be a smart boot such as these exquisite brogues by Grenson.
Wool trousers are undoubtedly in-style this season. This is one of the key pieces that will work well with both smart-casual and more casual outfit choices. For a great sporty-casual style combine these check wool trousers by Paul Smith with a plain white tee. Throw on a suede bomber jacket and a pair of clean white sneakers to finish off the look.
Want a more classy put-together look? Combine grey wool trousers with a cream merino wool sweater. Slip into a pair of smart black brogue boots and throw on a navy blue wool overcoat. Finish off the look with an elegant cashmere camel scarf.
Every man needs a good quality cosy wool sweater. The wool sweater is one of those versatile pieces that every man should have at hand in their autumn and winter wardrobe. It’s the obvious choice for staying snug and warm when the chill sets in. Simply throw this luxurious A.P.C merino cashmere crew neck knit over your t-shirt on a casual day or over the top of your shirt to stay warm on your commute to work. Knit sweaters are great for layering too. When the temperature dips, layer your knit sweater underneath your favourite coat or jacket for an interesting style combo, whilst keeping the weather at bay.
This is one of those menswear items we think you’ll really appreciate you have this season. The trusted raincoat will be appearing more often this autumn whether you like it or not. It will protect you from the worst downpours that autumn has to offer. Though not the best insulator, whilst the temperature is still bearable it will help keep out the wind and rain. When the temperature does begin to fall, think about adding a few layers under the raincoat to stay warm. This one above is one of our favourites by Stutterheim.
Getting caught in heavy downpours is never any fun – especially at the start of your day. Don’t get caught off guard again. Keep dry with one of the best umbrella makers on the market – London Undercover. These umbrellas bring together traditional crafting techniques with contemporary style for an impeccable umbrella that stands above the rest.
A scarf will add that much needed extra layer of insulation for the bitter cold this season. However, the scarf also adds that finishing touch of style to many good autumn outfits. We suggest you opt for a neutral hue fine wool scarf – such as this elegant Acne Studios Canada scarf – as this will give you more options when piecing together outfits for autumn.
If you haven’t got a classic leather biker jacket now is the time to get one. The biker jacket is one of those all-season staples that look great on almost any man. You will ooze with masculine energy as soon as you put one on. This slim-fit leather biker jacket by All Saints is a great example and one of our favourites. The weather-beating properties of leather will go some way to keep you warm and dry. However, when the temperature drops look towards layering – using hoodies or knit sweaters – to stay warm.
