3 Must-Have Men's Fall Styles

Autumn is by far and away my favorite season to dress. Although summer shorts, tees and complementing shades can look extremely crisp and classy, it’s just not for me. Fall styling, on the other hand, is much more refined, sleek and smart, as there are no limitations to layering wardrobes. From knit sweaters, button-ups, vests and jackets to dark denim and colored chinos, you’re guaranteed to look handsomely rugged and seasonally on trend.

Fashionable clothing is undoubtedly key to a well-polished outfit; however, the sophisticated gent should never forget three basic accessories: boots, belts and bags. One by one let’s talk about what makes each of these pieces distinct, which will help you achieve a top-down, fashion-forward outfit that’ll have you walking the streets in confidence.

I’ve long been a sucker for a well-crafted, burnished boot to kick up the leaves and get me from point A to point B. Practical, durable and comfortable, ankle boots are a fall wardrobe staple that can be paired with any outfit, regardless of where the day takes you.

For example, if I’m in a more rough and rugged mood, the Dune London Simon suits my style well; however, if I’m trying to blend relaxed with dapper, the Stacy Adams Madison II is more my speed. Brands like Steve Madden and Robert Wayne also further my style with trendy, out-of-the-box designs for an uncompromised, all-day comfortable look.

Although belts may not be the most visible wardrobe add-on, that doesn’t make them any less important to own. Pro tip: plastic belts should never make its way into your wardrobe arsenal; instead, think leather all the way.

Bed Stu, a brand that balks at the idea of mass production, prides itself on detailed craftsmanship by utilizing traditional techniques. In fact, they use natural leathers and a vegetable-based tanning process when available. Click the image above and check out a few of their most popular belts to wear for fall, and year round.

If you often find yourself on the go, don’t you dare leave your luxury loft without an urban-chic messenger bag by your side. Not only are these bags stylish, they’re more grown-up and just as functional as a backpack. With roomy storage and an exterior flap pocket, you’ll be able to pack your laptop and other necessities with ease.

Fully adaptable, you can wear these babies across your chest or detach the strap for a traditional carry. Made of varied canvas materials, these Bed Stu bags will surely be the exclamation mark to your fall style.

Menswear Monday: Fall Footwear Preview

Hello gents! As summer slowly winds down and fall starts to make its approach, I thought I’d help you get ahead of the style game by highlighting three must haves in men’s fall footwear. These timeless shoe staples are ones that you can keep on rotation in your wardrobe starting now and transition effortlessly into your fall wardrobe as the weather cools down.

Without further ado, here are three men’s footwear staples to get you ready for fall:

Workwear Boots:

The durable workboot has been a strong part of men’s wardrobes for a long time. The silhouette has been updated a bit over the years, and this season, we’re seeing a focus on a deep toe and tongue-to-toe lacing. Opt for neutral tones in brown for the most versatile look. You can dress them up with a smart pair of trousers or keep them casual with jeans.

1. Danner Bull Run Christy ST

2. Chippewa American Handcrafted GQ Rodeo Boot

3. Carhartt 6” Moc Toe Wedge Safety Toe Boot


Ankle Boots:

The next essential fall shoe I want to bring to your attention is the reliable ankle boot. Yes, it’s been around forever, but the styling of the ankle boot seems to keep evolving. You’ll find many celebrities wearing this with everything from distressed jeans to dressed-up trousers. To dress down the look for the weekend, I suggest pairing them with low-key denim and a light knit sweater or long-sleeved shirt.

1. Bruno Magli Raspino

2. Dune London Crib

3. Florsheim Rockit Chukka Boots

Chelsea Boots:

Last but certainly not least is the flat Chelsea boot. This is a great addition to any wardrobe for that traditional look that never goes out of style. This season, invest in a rich leather Chelsea with a low stacked heel or maybe something a little more casual with exposed stitching. Either way, this classic shoe pairs very well with just about anything, from your favorite jeans and a tee to chinos and a button-up shirt for the office.

Timberland: Celebrating 40 Years of Quality

casual boots, men's boots, men's shoes, rugged boots, Sidney Swartz, timberland, Timberland Classic 6, Timberland classic boots, work boots

It all started in 1973 with the introduction of the world’s first seam-sealed, guaranteed-waterproof boot. It was then that the very first Timberland boot was born, setting a high benchmark for every other boot to follow.

In the 40 years since Sidney Swartz unveiled that classic Timberland yellow boot (now known as the Classic 6” Boot), it has managed to reach iconic status with its uncomplicated design, authenticity and superb craftsmanship. The boot that was born out of practicality and the needs of the “working man” has certainly stood the test of time, continuing to make believers out of the working man and fashion tastemakers alike.

Today, Timberland continues to base their design ethic on this heritage of quality.  The unwavering standard for form, function & craftsmanship of the iconic Classic 6” lives on across all Timberland collections---a true testament to the brand’s commitment to making a great product that stands the test of time.

Holiday Party Shoe Picks from Donald J Pliner

Now that Thanksgiving has come and gone, the holiday season is officially upon us. That means holiday parties and festivities are just around the corner!

To get you started on thinking about your holiday outfits, we’ve rounded up some of our party-ready picks from Donald J Pliner.

For the fellas, a pair of suede loafers in one of the season’s hottest colors, wine, is a great way to add some color to an outfit. If you want to go more classic, try a simple ankle boot or a dapper monkstrap shoe with a pair of crisp trousers.

For the ladies, we love combining a little black dress with a pair of sexy knee-high boots! A pair of dressy flats is also a comfy way to add ladylike appeal to any party attire. Try pairing any of these with sheer black tights for an even dressier feel.
