Winter is slowly coming upon us and it’s that time to shift our fashion sense to be prepared for “Hoodie Season!”… As Fashion/Style shifts in various directions; some subtle, and some “out of the box” and bold. Some of us will be adventurous enough to embrace some of these style cues while some of us may not; to each his own. This change in weather sparks another phase is fashion and style… Here is my take on Mens’ Fall fashion through my eyes:
This Fall Rugby By Ralph Lauren has come out with a few new colorways on allot out the existing designs. Their style is a mix of bold colors on slightly faded medium quilt fabric. Keeping to the Authentic prep look and giving a platform for us “The Fly” to work with. I kind of feel a cool rebellious but super preppy feel every time I’m in the Rugby Store and their use of “vintage patches” is ridiculous. All shirts come with a patch/ emblem, however vintage patches are sold separate, which can be added to other items like jackets, Scarks, duffle bags, etc.. Look out for their limited edition “Tweed Run” british inspired collection capturing the spirit of the tweed run cycling event… with vintage suit jackets.
Rugby, for my taste always feels good when I’m out in the city /soho out shopping or a casual social event. Definitely look out for Rugby if your style allows you to pull off a preppy look. Rugby
Pop your collar, tie your scarf… Be prepared with a peacoat to keep you warm and stylish… Pea coats are available in a variety of forms, colors and pricepoints. There are budget friendly brands such as Old Navy, and then more traditional versions from manufacturers like Michael Kors, a few high-end designers have also stepped into the fray as well
When purchasing, make sure it fits tight in the body, but not so tight as to prevent layering beneath. Stick with jeans or khakis in day-to-day use—it may be double-breasted, but it’s not formal enough to pull off over a full suit.
A few of my preferred denims and styling cues…
Express Jeans – are so nicely tailored… But being a tall guys myself I can have a problem finding sizes and if found always try them on.
LRG Jeans – are actually one of my favorite! They have so many styles and colors- they offer looks that no one else does. A good quality denim
When in doubt- Buy Levis. Levi’s are the classic jeans, and they ALWAYS look good.
When it come to jeans, my approach is comfort, unless I’m looking to pair it with a specific outfit. I have also within the last couple years toned down the use of very uniquely designed jeans, to more simple, relaxed styling looking for other aspects of my outfit to grab the attention. No matter your preference in denim, weather it be bold or plain… Stick to what feels right to you.
Whether you’re going to wear Timberlands, Palladiums, Vasquez, Polo Boots, etc. I feel this fall fashion will carry a great platform to pull off countless stylish boot options. Paired with great denim and a bold use of layering, can make a unique look per each individuals taste. I alway feel like im in a strong stance in a good pair of boots; maybe it’s just me! If anything..consider it a stylish investment for the coming winter.
With a little over two months until black friday and the subsequent release of the Jordan 3 Black/Cement, hype and excitement is undoubtedly increasing. Today, a more artistic look at this original colorway has surfaced, perhaps giving sneakerheads and basketball enthusiasts a different angle at a sneaker already seen from nearly every perspective.

“Wale has been spotted numerous times rocking a pair of King James signature sneaks. Now he’s being seen posing with plenty of them. The DMV rep tweeted this pic of him with his pairs of the LeBron 8 V2 Low “Sprite,” “Solar Red” and “Miami Night,” as well as the similarly designed Nike Air Max 360 BB Low in Chlorine Blue/Photo Blue and Cool Grey/Lightbulb. ” – Nice Kicks
In keeping with the true essence of fall ultimately keep warm.. but realize there are some great fashion trends that we can carry regardless of age. Style = a particular, distinctive, or characteristic mode of action, an elegant, fashionable, or luxurious mode of living: to live in style.
