As summer winds down the inevitable happens… School returns to session. If you were smart enough to avoid summer session and enjoy your break setting your alarm clock is going to be a drag.  Ahh oh well man up and get those textbooks cracking with these Fall looks that will have your style GPA in the top percentile.


As a man ages so should his wardrobe. Classic styling like plaid and loafers go a long way. Grab your favorite fitted jean and complete the look. Its also perfect when your done with class and need to unwind at the local hangout. Not much to say here just move along and add these stand



When those temps change in your closet should be many types of sweaters. A shawl neck cardigan can be a life saver when those winds change and the degrees drop. Versatile enough to be worn open or closed as well as buttoned up or casual with 2 left open. Classic wool cap closes off this style with non athletic sneakers. This chukka style shows your more than just a hypebeast. I love solid full rinsed jeans with almost any look.


Obviously when school opens up your looking to impress. Gotta have the heat on the feet. One of the hottest Jordans to come out during the summer will accomplish this for you. But is that it? Nope you gotta turn it up a notch and keep the theme going with Olympic inspired gear such as this hoodie from Polo. Next step ditch the sneaker / jean combo. I love to grab a straight chino to pull this outfit together. Shows your about business even when your keeping it funky.


If you know me this look is a standard for me. So why change what isnt broke. Button down with a elegant cardigan added to your freshest kicks keeps things moving along quite nicely. Obviously your favorite jean is a must but do stay away from the oversize, meaning length and waist. Elbow patches and this seasons hot patterned fabric in Gingham might keep the eyes off the blackboard and solely on you.

Cooking is one of my favorite hobbies. I cook a lot and I use the same ingredients repeatedly. Like in the kitchen your wardrobe should have main options that bring a certain flavor to your particular style. No matter your style these are a few things I feel should be in every man’s closet.

The Jean

Ahh denim. Nothing beats putting on your favorite pair: broken in, distressed, fits like a glove. So many options from high end like 7 For All Mankind & Nudie to more affordable like Banana Republic & Diesel (my personal faves). If you arer like me you have many but there’s that one pair you constantly go back to, a must have.

The Button Down

The most versatile piece of clothing you can own. It can be worn with khakis, your favorite jean, under a casual sweater, your favorite suit, or on a casual date, at work or when you want to look somewhat preppy. The options vary the same from gingham to stripes to plaids. If your trying to look good then these are needed.

The Cardigan

Every man should have one. If you don’t stop reading and click here. Like the button down the look is as limitless as your vast mind. It can be paired with jeans or slacks. Can be worn for work or play. Over a dress shirt or t-shirt. Shawl neck, double breast, toggle front, merino wool, cotton, lambswool I can just go on and on but the point is clear.

The Suit

Was never big on suits, actually never owned one til 6 years ago. Why is it necessary? If you ever want to be taken seriously you will look to invest in one of these (unless that slacks & Pradas look is akin to your heart). Interview, business dinner, black tie affair the right suit will impress far more than your “witty” banter. Lucky for you (not for them) Syms is going out of business and suits are practically being given away. Depending on your shirt/tie combo you might only need one.

The Loafer

Now a sneaker-head like myself wishes I could wear my kicks all day everyday but I like to impress women from time to time. Like women, variety in your shoe game goes a long way. Pair with slacks for that office look or with a nice slim jean on that 1st date. Comfort is key which is why Cole Haan is my choice (this Nike owned company has Nike Air technology built in their shoes).

Like when you’re hungry you can fall back on that cereal & milk, well when your getting dressed make sure these options are always available.
