In your day to day, what’s the first coat you think to grab before heading out the door? Peacoat? Quilted jacket? Leather bomber? Wool topcoat? Something military-inspired? How about a khaki trench coat? Because of it’s timeless style and the fact that it pairs so well with a suit, a khaki trench might not be the first coat that jumps to mind. But like all classic menswear pieces, it’s got versatility built in. Add a classic touch to an everyday look with a lightweight khaki trench.

Quick check on the elements of fall style. Color. Sweaters. Layering. Scarves. Patterns. Outerwear. Boots. Do you need to incorporate these elements in order to have great fall style? Not necessarily. I’m on record saying that I find a lot of inspiration from women’s fashion. And Bill Cunningham’s most recent On the Street video got me thinking: why not catch fall off guard with an outfit of blacks and grays?

Greetings from Albuquerque, everyone. It’s hard to believe, but Rob and I have been on the road for an entire month. And today, I’m finally flying home for a brief second before heading to New York to shoot for an upcoming collaboration and then immediately on to Milan for some much needed R&R as well as a few meetings. One of the challenges of traveling so much is making sure we’ve got content in the can, which means we’ll shoot as much as possible before long trips like the one we’ve been on. Today’s look is one that we shot prior to leaving and mixes up a few of my favorite fall fabrics.

If it was practical for me to wear a three-piece suit all the time, I would wear one every damn day. I spend a lot time talking about a three-piece suit’s versatility, but let’s talk a bit about the whole package. Timeless, classic, confident, masculine. A three-piece suit can look put together and nonchalant at the same time. The problem with wearing one on a daily basis is that, unless you’re in a line of work where a three-piece suit is required, it can come off as much too formal for modern life. Dress down a three-piece suit by swapping the jacket for a chunky knit shawl collar cardigan.
