It’s all yours for the taking below, so be sure to let me know on Twitter what picks you end up going with.

HELM Boots Hollis Boots in Teak — $350
It wouldn’t be a roundup of the best men’s gear for fall without me recommending some of the best boots for men, right? As you well know if you read the blog, HELM Boots (out of Austin, Texas) produce some of the most rugged men’s boots around.
American Trench Merino Activity Socks with Silver — $19.50
Seeing as you’ve now got your eyes on some HELM Boots, you’re going to need some of the best boot socks for men, are you not? I might be biased, but I think American Trench makes some of the best men’s socks, period, including the Merino Activity Socks.
Ready or not, it’s time to close out today’s edition of The List. I don’t know about you, but I can’t get enough of some of these picks, many of which are quite simply among the best jackets for fall. It’s hard to pick a favorite, whether you fancy a fun golf polo from William Murray Golf or, say, the MR. PORTER Shearling Bomber Jacket covered at the top of the page.
You also shouldn’t sleep on the Veldskoen Heritage Suede Chukka Boots for casual heritage style this season, and I’m a huge proponent of outfitting yourself with the right accessories, including the best boot socks for men from American Trench. On the investment front, of course, I also love the rugged style of the FRYE Bowery Lace-Up Boots, not to mention the expert craftsmanship behind the Ollech & Wajs Pilot Watch. Whatever one of these picks might be your favorite, feel free to talk shop with me on Twitter. Thanks, as always, for reading!
