September Issue

One of the best and most stylish values out there. This white pair is the yin to the yang of the classic black Sambas we’ve featured in the magazine for years. The Samba is a great sneaker because while the profile is sleek, touches like the signature three stripes and suede toe detail add depth. And don’t think of sneakers as only appropriate with weekend wear—try these with a beautiful pinstripe suit or a pair of tweed pants.”

This is a top-shelf varsity jacket as we head into our second year of loving everything collegiate. I appreciate this True Religion one because the brand has authenticated the style to the point where it looks as though it could have been passed down or even vintage. The fit is spot on. All the bells and whistles make it feel original but won’t make a guy look like he’s an extra in Grease.”

Indispensable in your wardrobe. I like the Clarks Originals over all the desert boots out there. The gum sole breaks in better than any other and, when it does, there’s a comfort factor that just doesn’t exist in others. Some guys are put off by what they think is not a lot of support, but the shoes truly mold to the foot to become a very personal piece of footwear. Break them in like a pair of sneakers.


I encourage everyone to get stuck in the rain wearing them at least once to add a bit of character. They look great with any rolled-up khaki or jean or in outfits where conventional wisdom would say not to use, like a navy suit.

For eight bucks, I don’t think there’s a better bargain out there. Not only is it a wonderful muted plaid that will go with everything in your wardrobe for fall, but it also reverses to a mini-gingham check. I wouldn’t leave your house without a pocket square this season no matter how casual your unconstructed tweed jacket is or how dressy your three piece. A pocket square is always the finishing touch, especially one rendered in a rich plaid pattern.”

Tretorn’s are the original tennis sneaker. The brand hasn’t changed them and doesn’t need to—the formula is down pat. They are the perfect shade of off-white that is best coupled with casual clothes. In the autumn months, I like taking cotton sneakers like these and matching them with a rag sock and a rolled-up jean. It’s an easy way to make your summer sneakers work for you year-round.”

When I think of a shirt like this, I think of it having to be from Brooks Brothers because that’s ground zero in your search for a pink oxford. The quality is incredible, the fit is trimmer and it sports a smaller collar than the traditional styles. It can stand up to 500 washings and just gets better with age. There’s a little texture to the fabric which helps anchor any other sturdy fall fabrics you put it with. The pink is not so bright as to make you feel like a dandy, but it does give enough of a jolt of color to brighten up a pale, sunless face come winter. At this price, it’s probably one of your best fall investments.”

“This is a rock-solid chronograph that isn’t posing as a diving watch—it is a diving watch. It gives a man an instant rakish style, like he’s a thrill-seeking adventurer even if he’s not. The top-notch TAG Heuer craftsmanship ensures the watch will be keeping time and doing so in an authentic style that isn’t overly nautical. It’s a handsome watch with some heft to it, but it is still elegant enough to wear at the office.”

“Think of moleskin as corduroy without the ribs. We love it for fall because the fabric is warm and has a weight to it but, what we don’t like is that it is often stiff and hard to break in. Fear no more, though, as this pair from Gant by Michael Bastian has been washed and the result is like wearing a pair of sweatpants. They’re cut skinny and have a bit more personality than a standard issue pair of cargo pants.”

Michael Bastian once again takes a classic piece, in this case a chest-stripe sweater, and makes it elegant, youthful and somehow look new for the season. 

Every guy looks good in a chest stripe because it enhances the male physique; it makes guys look broader and their shoulders stronger without a single trip to the gym. The trim fit is incredibly flattering and marries up great with denim or a camel coat as we showed in the magazine. A beautiful investment for fall.

This is Todd Snyder’s take on an outerwear style invented in the 1950s called a snorkel coat. It was invented as an expedition coat for military treks in freezing climates. This one has the details of the original with a few exceptions.

The wool body brings it up to heavier-weight fall fabric standards and the removable orange liner pops when it’s unbuttoned. A genuine fox-fur collar adds a luxe touch to a versatile piece that can even be worn over a suit to the office in winter weather.
