9 Top Wardrobe Essentials Every Man Needs
Fall means colder temperatures and your summer clothes just don't cut it. So how do you stay warm without turning to bulky winter clothing that makes you look like a Michelin man? We've done the hard work for you and compiled 9 fall essentials that you can use to create a variety of beautiful fall outfits for men.
Men's Fall Essentials: Rubber-Soled Boot
Rubber soles allow you to get through the slush and snow that can occur in the fall and winter. The rules for getting quality rubber-soled boots are the same as for leather soles. Look for some sort of welt construction. A Goodyear welt is the perfect construction to look for. A studded rubber sole will also provide you with extra traction. Another option is the Blake Stitch. It is not recommended to use the Blake Stitch on the Goodyear welt because it offers less waterproof protection.
Men's Fall Essentials: High Quality Leather Jackets
I mean, you knew this was going to be on the list, right? Come on - there's nothing worse than a great leather jacket. We associate leather jackets with ruggedness. That's because of the protection it provides us. That's why bicyclists wear leather jackets in the event of an accident. Leather jackets have a timeless "tough guy appeal" that is perfect for my men's fall fashion guide.
Aside from the attitude, leather jackets are very durable and get better with age. As you wear a leather jacket more and more, it will fit your body better and become more flexible.
Men's fall must-haves: Henley shirts
The Henley is a versatile fall shirt that has been popular since the 19th century. The Henley was originally considered a men's sweatshirt in England. It was the most comfortable shirt of its time. As you can see, the Henley features a round collar and a placket of about 3 to 5 inches. In many ways, the Henley is a polo shirt without a collar.
The most notable advantage of the Henley is the V-shaped cut in the front that signals masculinity - of course, you need to check other things (decent fit is big) to pull off this look.
Men's fall must-haves: Shawl collar cardigans
Now, I know what you're thinking - "If I wear this, I'll look like a grandpa." Well, you won't. The cardigan is a classic and should be a central piece in your closet. This cardigan is named after James Brudenell. A Major General in the British Army and 7th Earl of Cardigan, Brudenell led the charge of the Light Brigade during the Battle of Balaklava during the Crimean War.
Men's fall essentials: gray flannel pants
A pair of gray flannel pants can be a must-have item for men's fall outfits. Flannel pants became one of the most iconic menswear items of the mid-20th century. Light-colored flannel pants paired with clashing sport jackets have been the most popular menswear ensemble for 30 years. Gray is the best color to choose for flannel pants because it is a neutral color that can be worn with any color other than gray.
Grey flannel pants can be worn in place of jeans in a casual outfit, or in place of a more formal outfit with a contrasting sports jacket.
Men's fall must-haves: Pullover hoodies
The first hoodies were designed in the United States in the 1930s for workers in New York warehouses. The workers had been complaining about the freezing temperatures in the warehouses, and Champion produced the first modern hoodie. It wasn't until the 1970s that hoodies became popular. This was due in part to the growth of hip-hop culture in New York City and the acceptance of this new garment by designers.
Men's fall must-haves: facecloth button-down shirts
First of all, never double up on flannel. So this shirt is not suitable for facecloth pants. But it will work well with any other type of pants! For fall, we suggest a dark flannel shirt and long sleeves. Pair it with a pair of jeans or chinos, roll up the sleeves and you will have a great outfit to wear throughout the fall and winter.
Men's Fall Essentials: Denim Jacket
The denim trucker jacket or denim jacket is another staple of fall menswear and one of the most iconic jackets of all time. The denim jacket is designed for extreme wear and tear. There is no more iconic or American jacket than the denim jacket. The appeal of the denim jacket is the longevity of the jacket and the style of the jacket.
Men's Fall Essentials: Youth Cloth Shirts
Another must-have shirt for men's fall outfits is the chambray shirt. Youth cloth construction was fascinating - it had a signature pattern that gave it a weathered look. The youth cloth shirt is a rugged shirt with a primarily casual style. You can wear it under a navy blazer or tucked into a pair of lightweight pants, if you wish.
In the fall, you should greatly enhance your fashion and style. Take the opportunity to become a person with a unique style.
