What to Wear On The Weekend According to GQ: Fall Edition

Fall is a time for active leisure, and in many a neck of the woods it’s the best season to get outdoors during your off-hours. (Goodbye, 100-degree days and biting bugs.) But don’t just throw on a layer and call it good: Look sharp as you head out into that crisp autumn air. Whether you’re using weekends to hit the trail or opting to stick to the familiar urban/suburban paths, below are some key pieces you’ll want to have – chosen and written about by GQ stylist Brett Fahlgren.

Reliable Denim. Your fall look starts here, with AG’s Everett Slim Straight Fit Jean. Reimagined with more room above the knee and a cleaned-up overall silhouette, it seems destined to be a wardrobe staple. Pair it with everything from flannels, t-shirts, and chunky sweaters to an unstructured blazer with an Oxford collar button-down.

An Easygoing Wet-Weather Coat.  This Forecast Rain Jacket by Herschel Supply Co. keeps it simple: waterproof stretch fabric, a knit lining that’ll keep you dry on the inside, and elastic-cuff sleeves that don’t come up short. In camo especially, it’s a casual look that brings a hint of attitude.

A Solid Boot. For most of us, Fall spells the end of sandals and summer loafers. Step into the season with something more rugged, but good-looking too. Timberland’s Wodehouse Lost History Boot fits the bill. It’s a handsome, lightweight chukka that blends form and function, with a roomy toe box and a dressy silhouette that can pair with wool trousers for a fancier weekend outing.

A Crafty Backpack. Also from Herschel, the Retreat backpack turns no-nonsense style into a statement. It’ll hold gear for the woods or the newspaper and tablet that you tote over to your favorite weekend coffee spot. It’s made of tough synthetic canvas, with a drawstring and flap closure.

A Performance-Gauging Watch.  You’re turning over a new leaf this fall—and the Blaze Smart Fitness Watch, made by Fitbit, will help you hit your goals. It keeps track of elevation gains, calories burned, and other triumphs of the active man’s successful weekend. It’s pretty damn sleek-looking, too. This minimalist piece of wearable tech makes for a snappy contrast to classic pieces.
