Once the summer has ended and the weather turns cooler, it is all about the fall! Fabrics become denser to ward off the chill in the air and clothing colors become richer to welcome the new season.
While I was browsing through some men’s fashion items for fall, I came across a few favorites. First, is a chunky cable knit mens sweater that is done in a great oatmeal color with a turtle neck and ribbed cuffs and waist. It is a fantastic way to add texture and interest to your wardrobe. Here, they paired the sweater with white jeans and brown leather loafers. This is exactly how to transition your look from hot to chilled.
Next, when you need a little something for the cooler weather, why not add a pop of color with this ocean blue quilted jacket. It has a stand collar, slim fit, and flap pockets, which make it almost resemble a blazer. The saturated blue color and the large diamond quilted pattern set it apart from most lightweight men’s jackets. It is a great addition to his blue check dress shirt, fitted khaki pants, and what could easily be one of Drake’s silk ties.
Last, but not least, is another favorite of mine. It is a British tan leather jacket by Tom Ford. The golden brown color looks like it was taken directly from the changing leaves at their peak and you can almost feel the suppleness of the leather through the photo. Tom Ford uses a luxury grade leather for this coat and uses the traditional “jean jacket” styling, which is a timeless silhouette. Since the coat is a medium weight material, you can get a few layers underneath to keep you warm.
The motorcycle jacket is a type of leather jacket that never seems to go out of style. A New York City based clothing manufacturing company, Schott NYC, that was founded by two brothers was the first to develop the leather motorcycle jacket in 1928. The longevity of the motorcycle style is attributed to a great functional design and the ability to adapt it to modern trends without losing the original concept.
For 2013, menswear designers have put their own stamp on the leather motorcycle jacket. Kenneth Cole takes the classic design with a short rise, asymmetrically zippered front flap, and uses a deep emerald green distressed leather and gold zippered hardware to incorporate the trend of color.
