Just one of the remarkable menswear essentials we’re recommending you buy this week (or month!).

If the weather is anything like it is in my neck of the woods, perhaps you’ve really started to get that fall feeling — a crisp breeze, changing leaves and perhaps … the desire to stow away your early fall gear in favor of men’s style essentials that are a little heftier and more rugged? Take the Taylor Stitch Fisherman Sweater, today’s featured pick and the lead entry in this edition of The List. There’s plenty more where that came from — read on below.

Triumph & Disaster On The Road Kit — $35.98

Handy essentials for a fall weekend away.

After all the rugged outdoor adventures you’ll have wearing the Taylor Stitch Fisherman Sweater, your face is going to need some R-and-R. The Triumph & Disaster On The Road Kit should be a fall travel essential.

Japanese selvage denim, garment-dyed & then crafted into slim blue jeans by a lauded American designer? These are only going to get better with age this fall.

Howler Brothers Merlin Jacket — $195

Technical detailing and vintage looks come together in one cool package.

Available in two cool colors, the Howler Brothers Merlin Jacket blends technical functionality with the kind of vintage style you might have seen on the trail decades ago. In short: It’s now the perfect fall jacket to wear with slim, faded jeans, suede chukka boots and a rugged henley.

Hey, winter’s going to get here eventually. You might as well buy these rugged outdoor boots now — your feet will thank you later.

Flint and Tinder Check Buttondown — $108

An essenttial casual shirt inspired by vintage plaids.

It’s easy to forget just how essential a simple-yet-crisp navy plaid buttondown shirt can be. The Flint and Tinder Check Buttondown features Japanese cotton, a clean fit and a great price.

Hard to go wrong with tough work pants for rugged fall style.

When the going gets tough, the tough get going … and surely, they step into the Iron & Resin Union Work Pants, right?

These are nearly a fall must-have. Beautifully done.

SeaVees has done it again, this time updating the excellent Mariners Boot in beautiful, rich suede for fall. Wear them with the Flint and Tinder Stonewashed Jeans (nudge, nudge).

#OOTD: The Best Way to Wear Sneakers This Fall (And Beyond)

So, how do you build your outfits? Do you start from the ground up or the top down? If you’re the kind of guy who likes to work with men’s style essentials to build an outfit around, say, stylish retro sneakers, then today’s #OOTD is just the one you need. We’ve talked about how to wear high-top sneakers, and we’ve talked about how to dress for a casual fall weekend, and this ensemble merges those two themes quite nicely.  It all starts with the Reproduction of Found German Army Trainers, as authentic and cool a pair of sneakers as you’re apt to find out there.  They lend a distinguished, eye-catching vibe to this outfit, which features all the building blocks you need for weekend brunch, a day of shopping or a stroll through your favorite park — potentially blended into one heck of a day, right? We’re also going with the perfect pair of jeans, plus a rugged shirt jacket, to complement these distinctive sneakers. This outfit is full of seriously cool positives, one of ’em being that you can wear this look … just about anywhere this fall. It’s cool, it’s rugged, it’s laidback, and it gives you plenty of comfort and style, all at once. Again, even if you’re not a sneakerhead, it still pays off to have a stylish pair of sneakers in your fall and winter wardrobe, and the Reproduction of Found German Army Trainers fit the bill. So, what do ya say? I say we dive into this #OOTD, packed with fall style essentials. Thanks for reading!

Start with classic, cool sneakers, then go from there.

  • The Classic Sneakers: Reproduction of Found German Military Trainers, $230 — Based on an authentic silhoeutte, these cool, stylish retro sneakers are a change-up from more traditional fall footwear — and that’s a good thing.
  • The Shirt Jacket: Life/After/Denim Mount Royal Shirt Jacket in Black, $188 — Think of this rugged shirt jacket as the versatile outer layer you didn’t know you needed. Feel free to layer it up over a classic chambray shirt if you wish.
  • The Stylish Tee: Jungmaven Hemp Pocket Tee, $39.98 — This casual T-shirt is easy to layer and well-made, plus it’s got a rich, fall-friendly color.  A slight upgrade from your regular T-shirts, to  say the least.
  • The Denim: Flint and Tinder Stonewashed Jeans, $128 — Hard to argue with a pair of perfectly faded, made-in-America jeans that vibe nicely with this casual ensemble, right?
  • The Belt: Levi’s Contrast Stitch Belt, $38 — You already know that Levi’s makes a great pair of jeans — but how about a stylish leather belt?
  • The Everyday Carry: Filson Ballistic Nylon Dryden Briefcase, $175 — Packing up to head to a coffee shop and get some work done? Cruising into the office? Grab the Filson Dryden Briefcase.
  • The Socks: Anonymousism Wigwam Jacquard Crew Socks in Brown, $20.50 — Never underestimate the power of having a stylish pair of socks to finish off your wardrobe. Just enough cool pattern and color here.
  • The Beanie Cap: Levi’s Turn Up Beanie, $29.50 — If the temperature dips — which it’s bound to do — throw on this stylis beanie cap from the makers of your favorite pair of classic denim.
  • The Watch: Hemel HFT20 Watch, $450 — Bold, rugged and durable, the Hemel HFT20 Watch is made for weekend adventures aplenty.
  • The Everyday Carry: Filson Ballistic Nylon Dryden Briefcase, $175 — Packing up to head to a coffee shop and get some work done? Cruising into the office? Grab the Filson Dryden Briefcase.

OK, so all the building blocks for prime casual fall style are in place, right? From a rugged shirt jacket to the laidback, easygoing and comfortable Jungmaven pocket tee, these pieces are simply going to look great, whether worn to your favorite sports bar or to a relaxed weekend coffee date … or somewhere in between. And where does it all start? With the excellent Reproduction of Found German Army Trainers, of course. These sneakers exude retro cool and slightly rugged fall style thanks to the contrasting sole, and they’ll sit quite nicely underneath the Flint and Tinder Stonewashed Jeans. Don’t be afraid to shelve your slim dark denim in favor of something more broken-in, particularly when it comes to wearing sneakers like the terrific Reproduction of Found German Army Trainers. On the accessories front, I’m always an advocate for putting on a stylish leather belt and a rugged leather watch — two small, oft-overlooked accessories that really do make a big difference when it comes to separating yourself from the pack. Should it get chilly, you’re also nicely covered with the Levi’s Turn Up Beanie, which plays nicely in terms of color with the handsome, subtly stylish Anonymousism socks. When it comes to your everyday carry, the Filson Dryden Briefcase is going to put in a ton of work, to say the least. To me, this all the gear you need for a great day around town — where would you wear it? Let me know on Twitter!

See Now, Buy Now: The Vetra Chore Coat is A Perfectly Rugged Fall Layer

Vetra Chore Coat
Just the right combination of looks, rugged functionality and seasonal style.

One look at the Vetra Chore Coat tells you all you need to know, in my mind. That is to say, it’s a rugged, tough jacket that’s made for fall and winter layering. And it’s certainly among a host of fall style essentials you need in your wardrobe (and on your person) this season. Is it the perfect fall jacket? Well, that’s high praise … but when it comes to casual, versatile, then … yep, the Vetra Chore Coat just might fit the bill. Available as ever via our pals at Huckberry, it’s the sort of rugged fall jacket that embodies what the site stands for, in every possible way. Again, that’s high praise, but the Vetra Chore Coat blends functionality with an easy-to-layer silhouette and timeless style. Crafted from a heavy-duty, plain-weave cotton canvas in a highly versatile shade of Navy (although the same design is available in two different fabrics and colors), the made-in-France Vetra Chore Coat is the type of grab-and-go jacket that should assuredly be the centerpiece of your next fall weekend #OOTD.

SHOP: The Vetra Chore Coat via Huckberry

Yes indeed, the Vetra Chore Coat is one-of-a-kind, done up in the type of classic workwear style that would sit very well with a rugged long-sleeve henley and tough chore pants. Two oversized front pockets and one chest pocket provide room for your everyday carry essentials, while the five front buttons certainly aren’t in any danger of falling off — this jacket is tough and sturdy as heck. That means it’ll layer up quite nicely with a classic crewneck sweater and tan chinos for a bit of high-low, essential weekend style. It’s also a neat way to switch things up from your typical blazer — yes, that’s right … I’m recommending you wear the Vetra Chore Coat over a slim Oxford shirt and a knit tie at the office. Is that entirely unique combo? Yessir. Is it going to look great? Absolutely. Try it out and see for yourself.

Style Pick of the Week: Quoddy Bowhunter Boots

Durable, heritage-quality boots that hone the spirit of the outdoors & the spirit of fall.

As we always talk about here at The Style Guide, there are certain fall style essentials you gotta have, and there are certain fall style essentials that are well worth the investment, ones that have that “Wow” factor. The Quoddy Bowhunter Boots absolutely fit into that category, to say the very least.  And for our Style Pick of the Week series, they’ll fit the bill just fine — particularly now that we’re cruising through October. If you’ve been slacking when it comes to picking up a pair of the best men’s boots, now is the time to snap ’em up. After all, everything from apple orchard exploration to craft beer festivals to football tailgates still awaits, and the exceptional Quoddy Bowhunter Boots are the one pair of boots to wear to all of those pursuits  (and to the office, if you can get away with it). Rugged leather boots are an essential for taking on fall and winter weather, and if you’re going to splurge, you might as well splurge on a pair that’s going to give you plenty in matters of both style and functionality — the Quoddy Bowhunter Boots shape up quite nicely.

Handmade in Maine with a seriously cool and rugged Grizzly Peanut leather, the Quoddy Bowhunter Boots are made with antique brass eyelets for durability — lace ’em up as often as you please. That handsome leather is going to break in very nicely, giving you a pair of stylish men’s boots that’ll team up easily alongside perfectly faded jeans and a classic henley. They’ve also got that throwback, heritage-inspired look that lends itself to actually being worn in  the field, be it on a weekend camping trip or a long weekend upstate. And you’re simply not going to find many other boots that feature a hand-stained leather midsole or a deerskin bellows tongue (designed to keep out water and debris). Yes indeed, the Quoddy Bowhunter Boots are the height of craftsmanship, quality and classic style. They’re going to work particularly well with chore pants and a waxed trucker jacket on a chilly fall or winter morning — no need to worry about durability or longevity when it comes to the Quoddy Bowhunter Boots, my friends. And if you fancy taking them for a spin at your office? They’ll wear handsomely with olive chinos and a classic garment-dyed Oxford.  A pair of stylish men’s boots that can do it all sounds like a must-have to me this season.

The Friday Read: Austin City Limits, the Best Men’s Work Boots and the Velvet Underground

Today marks the start of another very special weekend, particularly as we take The Style Guide on the road — namely, I’ll be at the incredible Austin City Limits Festival today through Sunday with my lovely fiancee Laura! Granted, things kicked off with the first weekend of this two-weekend festival, but we’ll be seeing it all for the first time. We’ve made a habit of hitting up some incredible music festivals this year, from the excellent Mo Pop Festival (featuring Bon Iver) to the small-time feel of Audiotree Music Festival and of course, The National’s Homecoming Festival.  On tap this weekend? Well, first things first: Sir Paul McCartney. And immediately prior to his Friday headlining set? Well, of course, The National. Elsewhere on the bill, we’re looking forward to sets from the likes of Arkells, CHVRCHES, up-and-coming California rockers Wallows & dance pop favorites Sylvan Esso — that’s just a small, small start! We also hope to check out some other sights in Austin, including Austin Eastciders and STAG Provisions, one of my absolute favorites when it comes to menswear across the board. Do you have any must-see spots in Austin that you’d recommend? Let me know on Twitter! Thanks for reading, my friends. 

  • If you happen to be a fan of the Velvet Underground, chances are, you’ll like the news that several music luminaries (including personal favorites like The National and Mr. Julian Casablancas) have curated their own playlists celebrating the legendary group, all as part of a special New York exhibition running through December. Check it out for yourself if you happen to be in the city this fall and winter!
  • On the menswear front more specifically, I can’t stop circling back around to the Danner Mountain 600 Boots, as an essential and comfortable pair of fall boots. Without a doubt. Agreed?
  • Speaking of fall boots: I’m re-upping this post right here and right now as we get into the spirit of fall — check out my picks for the best men’s work boots over at GearMoose.

That’s going to close out this edition of the Friday Read — in the words of the immortal movie “School of Rock” … “Let’s rock today.” That’ll be all!

See Now, Buy Now: The Flint and Tinder 10-Year Crew Is Your New Favorite Sweatshirt

The underrated layering essential you need in your fall wardrobe.

On casual fall weekends (like this coming one!), you’re going to need a stylish crewneck sweatshirt — enter the Flint and Tinder 10-Year Crew, my friends. A casual-yet-durable crewneck sweatshirt is going to put in a lot of work when it comes to versatile fall and winter layering, and make no mistake, the Flint and Tinder 10-Year Crew — part of the brand’s 10-Year Collection — has all the right specs. Flint and Tinder, an offshoot of our friends at Huckberry, knows how to get the job done in terms of made-in-America quality and style, that much is true. And the Flint and Tinder 10-Year Crew lives up to that billing, to say the least. It’s made from cozy and hard-wearing 23oz. fleece, perfect for throwing on atop a classic white tee to grab a weekend coffee — preferably paired up with some Flint and Tinder jeans, yes?

The classic navy color is timeless and to be applauded — it’s the kind of staple piece that pairs easily with everything from slim tan chinos and white high-top sneakers to a blue Oxford and grey selvedge denim. Can you tell I’m a fan of the Flint and Tinder 10-Year Crew? It’s also cut, sewn and finished in Los Angeles, a characteristic you don’t find too often these days. In short, the only thing you need to worry about when it comes to the Flint and Tinder 10-Year Crew is how to wear it. Try it with a white Oxford and slim khaki trousers, plus some classic suede chukka boots, at the office on a laidback fall day. Then, keep it handy to throw on with the aforementioned  Flint and Tinder jeans for a weekend coffee run. Are we on the same page? Yes? Done and done.

#OOTD: How to Wear a Denim Shirt for Fall and Winter

Alright, I’ll come right out and say it — you need a stylish denim shirt in your fall and winter wardrobe, and you need one now. The denim shirt seen here is the type of smart, casual, versatile shirting option that every guy (including you!) can use, in any season — but especially when it gets cold. And what’s more, the rugged denim shirt featured in this #OOTD from Billy Reid is the sort of shirt that can be worn plenty of ways this fall and winter (not to mention spring and summer). Mind you, it’s not just any casual shirt we’re talking today — it’s none other than the Billy Reid Denim Shirt, a seriously cool, made-in-America style staple. With unique texture and a bright blue color, this particular denim shirt is one that teams readily with the picks you see below (including a rugged henley) just as easily as it teams with more dressed-up style staples, like a charcoal herringbone blazer. The denim shirt is, simply put, the right way to add edge to casual outfits, and the right way to inject a bit of cool into tailored looks.  As I’ve mentioned, the Billy Reid Denim Shirt just goes with … anything, including the adventure-ready, casual weekend (or weekday!) look seen below. Versatile pants? You bet. A classic fall jacket? Yes. And stylish weatherproof boots? This #OOTD really does have it all. How would you wear it? Let me know on Twitter

OK, that’s going to wrap up this #OOTD. What’s your take on it? Are you in favor of pairing a stylish denim shirt with more functionally minded pieces, like that jacket from Howler Brothers? To me, I think it just works. And from a weekend hike to a particularly laidback Friday in the office, a pair of the Proof Rover Pants are also going to get the job done — the same can be said of the incredible Taylor Stitch boots as seen above. Seriously, the beauty of building your outfit around one piece (in this case, the Billy Reid Denim Shirt) comes from the variety of options you get from just that one shirt alone. Handy, durable accessories are also going to prove useful no matter where you go, so I’d snap up the Levi’s Cartago Multi-Hole Belt and the exceptionally well-crafted, versatile Barton Springs Diver from DuFrane Watches while you still can. So, where can this ensemble take you? Just about anywhere from a football tailgate to a day hike to an afternoon of beers at your favorite brewery — and perhaps all three at once. How’s that for versatility.
