See Now, Buy Now: The Best Corduroy Pants for Fall and Winter Are These Ones

The coolest corduroys around? The folks at Flint and Tinder sure think so.

I mention in the headline above that we’re going to dive into the best corduroy pants for the season in this post, so you’re probably wondering when I’m going to spill the beans. Specifically, what brand of corduroy pants?? Well, hold your horses, folks: Those would be the Flint and Tinder 365 Corduroy Pants, a seriously upgraded take on classic corduroys that’ll flip everything you thought you knew about the style on its head, making ’em some of the best corduroy pants you’ve laid eyes on (or worn, for that matter). These slim corduroy pants take all the things you know and love about Flint and Tinder’s 365 Pants (cut like jeans, but with the style points of chinos) and transition those attributes into one mighty fine pair of fall and winter corduroys. After all, finding the right pair of this eternal style can prove tricky. Old-school cords were likely the provenance of those who came before you, often too baggy and too fussy and not … quite cool enough. And if you thought corduroy pants couldn’t be cool, simply look no further than the Flint and Tinder 365 Corduroy Pants — seriously.

Rich colors like this shade of Chocolate make the Flint and Tinder 365 Cords a big-time winner.

But these pants are about more than just the impeccably tailored fit (and they’re also available in Straight Fit) — these pants have it all, top-to-bottom. These slim corduroy pants are made from an 8oz. blended cotton-and-spandex fabric for all-day comfort at the office or at a family holiday (like Thanksgiving!), and you won’t miss a beat at the office, either. The fact that the Flint and Tinder 365 Corduroy Pants come in three highly fall and winter-friendly colors makes them an impeccable pair of pants — wear them with your favorite chambray shirt and leather chukka boots, or team them with a thermal henley and rugged captoe boots for more laidback style. If you thought corduroy pants couldn’t be stylish, slim or modern, think again — the Flint and Tinder 365 Corduroy Pants have all that, and then some.

See Now, Buy Now: The Danner Pub Garden Boots are the Must-Buy Boots For Your Closet

Rugged boots that are ready for anything you can throw at ’em.

There’s a good chance that any time you set your sights on buying a pair of the best men’s boots, you turn toward Danner — at least, if that’s not the case right now, you need to fix that ASAP. That’s because the dependably rugged and surprisingly stylish Danner Pub Garden Boots are simply some of the best men’s boots for fall, crafted to reliably take on tough projects and laidback fall and winter days in equal measure. If at first you seem skeptical that one pair of tough leather boots could do so much, think again: After all, we’re talking about the Pacific Northwest-inspired folks at Danner, and they know a thing or two about delivering versatile men’s boots (as you’ve probably read on this blog, no doubt!). The Danner team has taken a multi-faceted approach with the Pub Garden Boots, starting with a tough leather upper guaranteed to break in over time (while withstanding mud and slush, that is). They’re waterproof and made to keep your feet dry, no matter what — and the use of a comfortable Ortholite footbed provides added protection on top of that. Those specs make these boots decidedly work-ready, yet they’ve still got plenty of style to bring to the table (or the trail, or the brewery … you get the picture).

This rich Chocolate colorway also brings plenty of style to your footwear rotation.

To be sure, the Pub Garden Boots really do blend the best of both worlds — Danner’s proprietary Bi-Fit Board construction offers added ankle support and durability throughout the whole length of the shoe. Again, these are work-ready boots — if you really want ’em to be. Plus, the outsole is made with an oil and water-resistant compound to offer maximum grip on slippery surfaces — that’s important whether you wear the Pub Garden Boots to the brewpub (pun intended!) with your favorite pair of jeans or to hit the trail on an early morning hike. The silhouette is rough-and-tumble, perfect to wear through fall and winter with rugged chore pants and a thermal henley. Long story short: If you want a pair of stylish leather boots that can do it all, you want the Danner Pub Garden Boots.

The perfect fall jacket? It could just be.

When we talk about the best jackets for fall, there are several considerations to keep in mind — it’s a high bar to clear, to be sure.

It also needs to be wearable in a variety of style situations — given that the Roark Revival Convoy Jacket is modeled after a vintage trucker jacket, it also hits the mark. Seriously: Wear it with a white Oxford and your favorite pair of jeans to the office, or keep this rugged trucker jacket handy to wear with a classic henley and equally tough chore pants.

Side slit hand pockets also work to keep, well, your hands warm — again, don’t underrate the functionality of the Roark Revival Convoy Jacket. The silhouette should also be refined and yet easy to layer — you could even wear this jacket atop your favorite crewneck sweatshirt if the weather gets especially chilly. As we’ve said before, you need uncompromising quality when it comes to your go-to fall jacket — and in that regard, the Roark Revival Convoy Jacket simply (and stylishly) delivers.

A newly iconic shirt in a perfect fall texture.

It nearly goes without saying, but they produce some of the best men’s gear (and the best men’s shirts!) your money can buy.

Specifically, the Jack Shirt in Heather Ash Waffle — it’s richly crafted, it’s endlessly versatile, and as the headline says above, it’s your new favorite shirt, guaranteed. As per usual, that would, at first glance, seem to be overly high praise … but again, Taylor Stitch can back it up.
The Best Basics. Summer Ready.

Where does it all start when it comes to one of the best men’s shirts for fall? It starts, naturally, with the rich and rugged fabric. For those days when you want to add some variety to your everyday #OOTD, the Taylor Stitch Jack Shirt in Heather Ash Waffle is just what the doctor ordered. Made from 100 percent organic cotton in a  pleasing-but-not-too-heavy 6.5oz. weight, it’s got the perfect texture to wear on its own or layer up over a rugged henley — that’s fall style at its best, if you ask me.

The stylish shirt to wear all fall.

The fit of the Taylor Stitch Jack Shirt is also perfectly on-point, trim and tailored but not too tight in the slightest (I go with a size 40 for reference — see how I style it on Instagram). And when it comes to seasonal versatility, this new take on the Taylor Stitch Jack Shirt has that in spades. Case in point: You  can wear this classic fall shirt with slim dark denim or olive chinos on its own through the weekend, or layer it up with a classic navy blazer and tan five-pocket pants to head to the office. It adds just enough variety and visual interest compared to more straightforward shirts, and in my book, that makes it a winner — big-time. Shake up your fall style ASAP with what could just be your new favorite shirt.

They’ve got the classic five-pocket design of denim, and yet the tailored cut of chinos — and we haven’t even discussed the exceptional fabric used to craft the Proof Rover Pants. It’s a specially engineered fabric made with cotton, Sorbek and lycra for durability, a hint of stretch & ease of movement. Throw in the fact that these rugged work pants feature a gusseted crotch and darted knee seams, and you’ve got a pair of pants that you can actually wear to, y’know, tackle yard work … or simply tackle another IPA at your favorite brewery.

The rivet points on the Proof Rover Pants are also sturdy and tough, while the fabric is custom pigment-dyed — that means these slim fall trousers are going to break in like your favorite pair of jeans, month after month … after month. And what’s more, they retail for under $100 at Huckberry, a heck of a deal when you consider how much you can wear ’em (every day of the week??). And one last point: I just might have to get a pair of Proof Rover Pants in every color, seeing as the rich options (from Midnight Navy to Khaki) are as versatile as can be.
