Fall Wardrobe Must-Haves For Men

As personal stylists, one of our most popular requests is to help men find a casual wardrobe that’s well put together and not too smart and not too casual. We find that men tend to end up either being too casual (that’s usually sportswear) or too smart (that’s an old blazer that they once wore for work). Finding that balance can be tricky and since men make up 40% of our client base, we have created a guide of fall wardrobe must-haves for men.

Fall Wardrobe Must-Haves For Men

The casual shirt is a must have in any men’s wardrobe and here three things play a big part in getting it right; fit, style and colour. As high as 80% of our male clients are wearing a size too big before a style session and because you were once a large in 2004 in one store, that logic doesn’t apply to every other shop.

A casual shirt will usually be in a soft cotton, brushed cotton or chambray and we recommend having a good ratio of print to plain. Before you reach for the pinks, the greens and the burgundy’s you need to make sure you have the basics first such as a great casual blue (any shade) and a classic checked shirt.

Chinos are a great alternative to jeans and should feature in a man’s casual wardrobe. In the fall, we recommend a burgundy, navy or tan pair that will work in harmony with the rest of your outfits. Fit is everything here too and for chinos can really make or break an outfit. A slimmer fit is generally more flattering on 90% of men rather than a looser utility style fit.

“There are plenty of great options around for every body type. This is when investing in the help of a stylist really comes into play as they can guide you in the right direction straight away.”

Boots are a must-have for any man come the fall and whether you’re a Chelsea boot man or a desert boot guy, a neutral boot in tan or brown will work with everything. We’d like to add here too that shoes wear out! Yes, shoes need to be replaced and if your old boots are looking worse for wear, it’s time to invest in some new ones. The shoes you wear will ultimately define how smart or casual an outfit becomes therefore having the right shoes will make or break an outfit.

A classic Fall coat is also and investment worth making. This is your last layer and should fit you perfectly and be something that works with 90% of your wardrobe. A classic tan, black, gray or blue are good options and a mid thigh length coat is a great place to start. Keep it sleek and simple and avoid too many details such as exposed zippers or too much hardware.
