Men's Fall Fashion Must-Haves

As winter approaches it is time for men to stock up on a few new wardrobe essentials. Emphasis as always should be for comfort, warmth, value and style! Remember that fashion trends come and go, but classic styles last forever. Men's classic items are generally include a suit, sports jacket, a white shirt and tie, a great pair of jeans and lastly a loafer or sorts.

1. Sweaters, also known as knits can be worn for warmth or looking polished. Choose basic colors with either a v-neck or crew neck that has a circular opening. Knits can be purchased in cashmere, cotton or warm fleece.

2.Duffle coats or better known as toggle coats offer an updated look. If your looking for a less trendy purchase stick to the classic double breasted coat in either camel, black or brown.

3 Jeans or khakis can be worn as a classic look, but also trendy. A well altered pair of dark jeans can be used for many wardrobe needs. Paired with a tweed or leather sport jacket and a suede shoe or boot offers diversity for most any occasion.

4. Button-down shirt is a dress shirt. Dress shirts can be dressed up with a suit and silk tie and dressed down with a pair of khakis or jeans. Button-down shirts are most versatile since it can be worn for work or social settings

5. Hats can be worn two ways fashionably through winter. The first should be the 1940's fedora with a brim or a cloth cap as a stylish alternative to keep off the rain. The other style provides warmth and protection from wind or snow. The most fashionable trend is knit cap or driving cap.

Enjoy the season!
