Bell’s Brewery Octoberfest — Price Varies via Drizly
It’s one of the great joys in life that you can now get your favorite beer delivered right to your doorstep via Drizly, especially if you can track down fall beers that might be slightly harder to find, like Bell’s Octoberfest (from my home state!). I mentioned above that we’d cover the best beers for fall, and there’s more where that came from in the rest of this post.
Buck Mason Alfa Military Shirt — $195
Another rugged fall layer to start off today’s post — how about? This Buck Mason shirt jacket is more like a jacket than your standard Oxford shirt, made from Japanese cotton-sateen & designed to replicate a US Army OG-107 Jacket. It’s the best jacket for a fall road trip, folks.

Everlane Premium Weight Henley — $35
FRYE Prison Boots — $378
Timex Weekender Oversized Chronograph Watch — $80 via Cool Material
Now, the Duvel Belgian Ale might be hard to come by, and it might not be a full-on “fall beer,” per se, but that’s not going to stop me from recommending that you pick up this pleasantly boozy-yet-crisp, flavorful Belgian strong ale for a chilly fall night. It’s one of my go-to beers.
Western Rise AirLight Buttondown Shirt — $109
OK, back to menswear that’s fit for the trail and the town alike. The Western Rise AirLight Shirt is breezy & lightweight enough to wear with a canvas workwear jacket for fall travel or a hike, yet it’ll do just fine to throw on as you sip on a nice Belgian strong ale this season.
Relwen Thermal Crew — $128
Speaking of menswear to rock on and off the trail, well, here’s one of the best thermal shirts for layering on day hikes or wearing all on its own around the bonfire.
Alsta Nautoscaph Superautomatic — $1,005
Invest in one of the best men’s adventure watches right this very instant, and not a moment too soon for hitting the road this fall. The Alsta Nautoscaph Superautomatic is a sight to behold, playing off the original watch worn by Richard Dreyfuss in “Jaws” — bingo!
Yes, here’s one more of the best beers for fall to try out this very instant. The brewery recommends you pair this rich Marzen with everything from pretzels to sausage, and having tried out the Karbachtoberfest myself, I couldn’t agree more. Cheers, folks.
Minnetonka Moosehide Classic Loafers — $89.95
What teams better with one of the best beers for fall on a cold October night than some classic leather loafers from Minnetonka? Wear these with stretch selvage jeans and your Everlane henley for unbeatable casual fall style.
Ibex Hiker Warm Crew Socks — $20
Last but not least, how about we close things out with some of the best men’s hiking socks, ehh? Heck, go right on ahead and wear these Ibex socks with FRYE leather boots, those same stretch selvage jeans, that ever-versatile Everlane henley and a rugged fall jacket any day of the week. Fall style solved, folks.
Who else is ready for a fall weekend? I hope you’ve found all the right gear you need, from the little details (like the best men’s hiking socks or classic leather loafers) right on through to the big-ticket items that can make or break a fall weekend or road trip (as in, one of the best men’s adventure watches or FRYE leather boots). And yet, you’re not going to want to skimp on the details, either. You assuredly need one of the best beers for fall in your fridge, plus comfortable essentials like some stretch selvage jeans and a Taylor Stitch sweater.
My personal favorite from the above list, though? It’s got to be the excellent, newly iconic Todd Snyder Made in New York Field Jacket, primed for fall road trips and fall excursions aplenty. To share with me your own top picks from this roundup, head on over to Twitter. Cheers, my friends!
