Outerwear
Over the years, you’ve probably added a pea coat, parka, and a goose-down jacket to your cold weather repertoire and now it’s time to add a bomber style jacket. With its military heritage, the modern bomber jacket pays homage to that heritage and adds modern twists. Varsity jacket style bombers with contrasting sleeves are the perfect pieces of outwear for the sporty guy (even if you’ve never picked up a ball in your entire life). If you’re looking for something with a bit of edge, try a patterned bomber in camo or plaid. The key to any good bomber jacket is fit. Bomber jackets should fall right at your waist and hug your shoulders.

Footwear
Making the investment in quality footwear is one of the best things you’ll do for your wardrobe. During the fall, there’s no better investment than quality boots. Finding a boot that will last and that’s multifunctional is the key to fall footwear success. Before reaching for your construction-style kicks, thinking of adding a rugged dress boot to your collection. Brands like Cobbler Union & Cole Haan meld classic boot styling with a classic shoe aesthetic. With details such as pebble grain leather, cap-toe front and waterproof vibram and lunar soles your fall/winter boot style with trump everyone around.
