5 Must-Have Fall Pieces

Today I am sharing with you five pieces that I cannot be without this season. The best part? You can mix and match them all to achieve multiple looks. 1. Quilted Bomber Jacket Blazer, chino pants, woven, repeat. Do you ever get tired of figuring out what to wear because, all season long, you’re putting together the same uniform? Enter the Quilted Jacket. If chosen carefully, this piece can replace a blazer for a slightly sporty, yet equally elevated look. There are many different types of quilted jackets, but I gravitate towards the Bomber. The Quilted Bomber has a silhouette that accentuates your shoulders and makes your waist look trim. You can dress up the jacket like I did above, or wear it more casually with a v-neck tee and denim – you all know I live for a multi-purpose piece of clothing. I love this jacket from Penguin because it’s lightweight, has gray accents that makes the blue pop even more, and is made with little details (like the arm zipper) that gives one …

Dressing For Outdoor Events 

It is the season of outdoor events and many guys wonder how to keep their style fresh while also looking appropriate for their outings.

Your Not-So-Average Suit

It’s event season in New York City and I am always looking for fresh new ways to wear a suit.When it comes to suiting, sometimes going away from what’s traditional creates a more memorable statement. We all have the standard navy, grey and black suits hanging in our closet, but why not mix the staples up with a variation of color?This dusty blue slim suit from Bar III immediately caught my eye. It’s a color that can be worn year-round and because the color leaves such a bold impression, you can decide whether or not to wear a tie (depending on the type of event of course). The price of this suit is just under $300 which is a phenomenal deal for the quality and construction of the pants and jacket. If I buy an off-the-rack suit, I always make sure to get it tailored to polish off the fit, but this is a suit that won’t need much work. Both maroon and sky blues have been my go-to colors for suits this fall, and …
