Alright, it’s fall now … isn’t it? While last month we talked about the best rugged gear to buy for early fall, we’re getting deeper into a season that’s simply an excellent time to be a fan of #menswear. If you read The Style Guide, you know that fall brings the potential for all kinds of fun, from layering with rugged overshirts to stepping out in stylish leather boots and simply enjoying all the season has to offer. And that’s quite a lot — tailgates, apple orchard trips, craft beer festivals … you name it. In today’s edition of The List, we’re covering the best gear to buy for fall, and there’s quite a lot to cover. Read on, shop away and let me know what you think over at The Style Guide Facebook page. Cheers.
Your favorite classic sneaker brand — that’d be SeaVees — updates the Legend silhouette in fall-ready corduroy. Wear these with garment-dyed grey chinos and a light cotton sweater to head to class or the office.
If you want to upgrade your everyday carry in style, the gorgeous, finely crafted and heritage-quality WP Standard Large Messenger Bag is the one to buy. I’ve tested out this bag around Brooklyn as of late, and it’s held up wonderfully (check out my Instagram for more).
So, it’s a fall Friday night. You’re kicked back around the backyard fire pit, IPA in hand, stylish cotton sweater on … and you’re listening to the Marshall Stanmore Bluetooth Speaker. Handsomely appointed and of excellent quality.
Saddleback Leather Rounded Leather Duffel Bag — $595
There’s quite a lot to say about the investment-level quality and standout design of this durable, beastly Saddleback Leather bag — but let me just say this: It could be the last duffel bag you ever need to buy.
If you’ve been wanting a do-it-all, rugged fall jacket — something to layer over an Oxford, a slim henley or a pocket tee — the durable nylon-cotton twill blend Relwen Waxed Snap CPO is here. If I didn’t know better, I’d say the Waxed Snap CPO is a perfectly rugged outer layer to wear to head to your favorite brewery.
While a pair of plain-toe, rugged leather boots are always welcome in matters of fall style, the Unmarked Rancher Derby Boot blends unique design touches with a classic silhouette for a nice change of pace.
With the Unmarked Rancher Derby Boot, we’re closing out this week’s edition of The List. Have any particular favorites from this round? The Relwen Waxed Snap CPO is my personal favorite, with plenty of rugged layering potential. Let me know your thoughts in the comments below!
