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.
Taylor Stitch Fisherman Sweater in Natural Melange — $188
Your friends — heck, our friends — at Taylor Stitch have their hearts and minds set on making some of the best darn cold-weather gear out there. Exhibit A: The rugged, well-crafted Taylor Stitch Fisherman Sweater.

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.
Billy Reid Garment-Dyed Slim Jeans — $225
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
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.
