#OOTD: How to Wear a Classic Crewneck Sweatshirt This Fall

My friends, today’s rundown of fall style essentials begs the question: Is there a way to wear a classic crewneck sweatshirt that’s more stylish than, say, the old-school gym class crewneck? The answer is decisively yes, so come along for the ride as we talk about how to wear a crewneck sweatshirt this fall. Yes indeed, join us once more another ultra-stylish #OOTD as we cover how to dress for fall for guys — the right way, naturally. It all starts with one of the best crewneck sweatshirts for men, and it helps if you know where to go. Today’s pick is from Todd Snyder + Champion, a fruitful collaboration that’s produced vintage-inspired menswear for the modern man over the years, including the Todd Snyder + Champion sweatshirt you’re about to view below. When you start with a rugged-yet-refined crewneck, then build around it, you’re going to love where you can go this fall. This #OOTD is the kind of look that works for a responsible fall bonfire, a day trip to your fall retreat or a day bumming around the yard and at home (consider adding a new record player to your cart for especially chilly fall evenings). When you see the supporting cast around this sweatshirt, including a one of the best men’s Oxford shirts, a James Bond-approved waxed jacket, expertly faded denim from Buck Mason and some of the best leather boots, you’re going to appreciate the ongoing arrival of fall. Happy shopping, my friends.

A classic crewneck sweatshirt, teamed up with all the best men’s gear for fall.

If you ask me, when it comes this stylish fall look, the gang’s all here. That includes subtle-yet-stylish supporting picks like denim from Buck Mason, all the better for essential, comfortable fall style, and it holds doubly true when you consider the start of the entire ensemble. I’m talking about the Todd Snyder + Champion Pocket Sweatshirt, an undeniably cool and rugged fall sweatshirt that layers with ease over your Everlane Oxford shirt for classic style any day of the week. Somehow, it all gets better and more fitting for fall, though. That’s because the Rogue Territory Supply Jacket — again, one of the jackets worn by James Bond in “No Time To Die” — makes a seriously cool appearance alongside slim, faded Buck Mason denim. Consider the perfectly ruggged the FRYE Logan Boots a key part of this look, too — they’ll take you anywhere you need to go this season, I guarantee it.

But of course, your mix of comfort and style wouldn’t be complete with a pair of the best men’s socks via the good folks at American Trench (your feet will thank you). Of course, the only way to accessorize is the right way: With a rugged leather field watch and a correspondingly handcrafted leather belt from Billykirk. Well-done, folks. That’s hardly it, though. Your Filson rugged twill bag is the perfect companion to each and every fall adventure you have in mind. If I had to guess, that list is growing by the day. For now, stay safe out there and thanks for reading!

Style Pick of the Week: Filson Quilted Jac-Shirt

Filson Quilted Jac-Shirt

Whether you’re a skilled banjo player, an explorer or have a tendency toward days at home, this is one of the best shirt jackets for men you can buy.

When you know, you know — when you step outside on a crisp, cool fall morning, you know what lies in store: Fall adventures and of course, the need for rugged fall gear to take on the day. That, my friends, is where the Filson Quilted Jac-Shirt comes into play, one of the best shirt jackets for men this fall (and of course, well beyond). This timeless men’s shirt jacket is tough-as-nails, easy to layer, built for inclement fall weather, and made to last and last — and last. That sounds pretty ideal for the season, right? It’s built to act as a standalone outer layer, thanks to PrimaLoft insulation that’ll keep you toasty on cold fall mornings and days in the field, preferably layered atop a Filson henley. The Filson Quilted Jac-Shirt is built every bit as well as you’d expect coming from Filson, made for Pacific Northwest mornings (or days at home, upstate or in the Midwest).

When the going gets tough, you should assuredly turn toward one of the best shirt jackets for men, seeing as this particular number is made with a tough, 4oz. cotton exterior finished off with a water-resistant waxed treatment. It delivers the goods when you need it, to say the least.

SHOP: The Filson Quilted Jac-Shirt

Filson

A reliable, dependable and rugged shirt jacket for fall and winter.

One of the best men’s shirt jackets needs to step up in the clutch, and it helps if it looks darn good while doing it. The Marsh Olive color is a workhorse when it comes to pairing up with grey chore pants and tough leather work boots, yet it also looks mighty fine when worn casually (think slim indigo jeans, a thermal henley and chukka boots to grab to-go brewery beers). Consider the Filson Quilted Jac-Shirt a grab-and-go-type of jacket, one you need to wear when on the trail or camping under the stars (or again, hanging out around your bonfire). And because it’s Filson, all the details are accounted for — the snap front buttons are easy to use even while wearing, say, Filson work gloves. Although the Filson Quilted Jac-Shirt is a bit pricier than your average work shirt, it’s absolutely worth it — it’s a new everyday style staple. If you end up picking it up, let me know on Twitter.

I’m feeling more than ready for fall to pick up in earnest — how about you? I’ve definitely been busy on the writing front, covering the best weekender bags over at Maxim.com and writing about the best bourbons for National Bourbon Heritage Month for GearMoose, too. I’ve also been making sure to support my favorite craft beer breweries in Brooklyn when possible, including picking up some to-go beers at Gold Star Beer Counter, all the better to enjoy in my craft beer growler at home. Perhaps you’re in much the same boat? It’s tough to not be able to enjoy a brewery or beer bar in person, but I’m urging you (and reminding myself!) to stay safe and strong in the meantime.

Handcrafted, oiled suede gives these lace-up leather boots a bit of a rugged, rock n’roll edge — feel free to wear ’em with slim black jeans and, say, a black leather jacket atop your favorite T-shirt (even if you can’t exactly go to a rock show right now). The FRYE Tyler Boots are made with Goodyear welt construction, which means you can wear and wear them for years … then have ’em resoled with ease. And these rugged leather boots should also provide surprising comfort, whether worn with slim dark denim and a chambray shirt or a thermal henley and tan chinos — they feature a PORON foam footbed for a smooth ride. The  bottom line is this: It’s still the right time to pick up some of your new favorite boots, and you should certainly head over to FRYE to pick up the pair that’s right for you.

#OOTD: How to Dress for a Fall Road Trip Right Now

We’ve been talking for some time now on the blog about how to dress for early fall (and beyond), and now that we’ve officially crossed over into the season itself, let’s pivot ever so slightly. Let’s go beyond the confines of your home office and your back patio, and let’s talk about how to dress for a fall road trip. I’m not talking about hopping on a cross-country flight — I’m moreso talking about the kind of trip where you pack up a durable duffle bag, grab your most rugged denim jacket, bring along your craft beer growler … and then get in the car and go. Where to?  A cabin, the lake, the river, a quiet town upstate … any and all of the above, right? Right. What to bring with you?

Well, a stylish face mask, for starters. But beyond that, we’ll cover all your fall style essentials for a road trip today on the blog — rest assured of that. Comfort, durability and style are the key here, seeing as you might be going off-trail for a hike or spending plenty of time on your feet, hopping from brewery to brewery (patios and masks preferred). Given that approach, you’ll find the best pants for fall travel and some stylish sneaker boots in the mix, too. Of course, all the right layers are along for the ride, including a tough workwear shirt  and a rugged leather watch. These are picks suited for casual (masked) strolls around town, and with a bit of improvisation, you can get out the door for that orchard or winery tour (at least, that’s what I’d do). How about it? Is this #OOTD ready for fall? I sure hope you think so. Stay safe, gear up and let me know what you think of this ensemble on Twitter.

Versatile, rugged layers for hitting the road this fall.

  • The Jacket: Todd Snyder Japanese Stretch Selvedge Denim Jacket, $288 — Made from rich indigo Japanese cotton with plenty of stretch, this classic denim jacket is one of the best denim jackets around, and it’s ideal for falll layering given the built-in stretch.
  • The Shirt: Flint and Tinder Selvage Architects Shirt, $128 — Layer up your rugged denim jacket with a new Flint and Tinder shirt, cut like a classic Oxford shirt and yet featuring Japanese selvage fabric for tough durability in fall weather.
  • The Tee: Buck Mason Long-Sleeve Raglan Tee, $52 — Keep the fall layering rolling with one of the most comfortable long-sleeve tees around. Buck Mason gets it done.
  • The Pants: Western Rise AT Slim Pants in Sand, $128 — Cut in a classic five-pocket silhouette and featuring plenty of durability and stretch, these Western Rise pants are the best pants for fall travel, period.
  • The Sneaker Boots: HELM Cole Sneakers in Wheat, $240 — The brand that makes some of your favorite boots (as seen here) is now making some of the best men’s sneakers, cut to be the perfect hybrid between, well, sneakers and boots.
  • The Watch: Luminox Atacama Field Chronograph, $940 — If you want a rugged leather watch that you can wear on the road and then out to grab socially distanced craft beers, you want this durable field watch from Luminox, my friends.
  • The Hat: Huckberry Explorer’s Cap, $40 — A fittingly named hat for fall adventures, and certainly one of the best men’s ballcaps out there.
  • The Travel Bag: Halfday Garment Duffle, $95 — Looking for the best travel bag under $100? You’ve found it. This garment bag from Bespoke Post zips into a stylish duffle bag, and comes complete with tough hardware, a built-in shoe compartment and more.

If I had to guess, I’d wager that this #OOTD is going to carry you through fall more than stylishly and reliably, no doubt about it. If you’ve been wondering how to dress for fall, period, or how to dress for a fall road trip, start here. A rugged workwear shirt teams stylishly with your new favorite denim jacket, and of course, that combination layers up more than readily with one of the best long-sleeve T-shirts for fall, courtesy of our pals at Buck Mason. When it gets a bit too warm (as is known to happen with shifting winds and fall sunlight), ditch the denim jacket and stick with the long-sleeve tee and your Flint and Tinder shirt. It all works in harmony with the best pants for fall travel, a durable pair that’ll stand up to fall weather and long hours in the car. But of course, a pair of the best men’s sneakers takes the cake on the footwear front (make sure your HELM boots are packed in your bag, of course) — there’s nothing better than comfortable sneaker boots for the trail and the taproom, am I right?

It all comes together in precisely the right way on the accessories front when you consider the versatility of your durable field watch from Luminox, fit for all-day wear. To keep the sun off your face and shield your eyes from the wind ever so slightly, throw on the Huckberry Explorer’s Cap for anything and everything on your to-do list. Last but certainly not least, a versatile duffle bag is the perfect way to haul your weekend style essentials (and it’s easy to pack and easy to zip out into a hanging garment bag). Alright, folks. Who’s ready to hit the road? I’ll see you out there. To get the scoop on how I’m dressing for fall, head to my Instagram
