Here at The Style Guide, you can rest assured that we — and by “we,” I mean your humble staff of one — are always working to outfit you with men’s style essentials for the fall season. As we’ve been saying, it’s a time that requires durable, tough and versatile gear that can work for all the casual style scenarios the season offers, everything form apple picking to tailgating. In that regard, pieces like a stylish zip hooded sweatshirt or durable selvedge jeans have the potential to be daily favorites. As does a favorite record by a favorite band. So, here we go!
Vinyl Me, Please Records: “Boxer” by The National — $29

Levi’s Made & Crafted 511 Slim Jeans — $148
The Levi’s Made & Crafted line amps up the premium quality you”ve come to expect from the brand, while at the same time reinventing classic styles for today. Sounds good to me.
