Time sure flies when you're having fun. With another month in the books, it's time to take a look back at what I wore on the blog in October. One of my main goals was to illustrate a variety of ways to wear a plaid three-piece suit. Starting with the full three-piece, I also wore the jacket alone on a trip to New York City, the pants and waistcoat together to release my inner dandy, the pants separately for a little pre-Venice inspiration, and got creative with the waistcoat alone. The official arrival of autumn also meant falling into both heavy and light layers and breaking out a killer leather jacket. Let me know which look you liked best and shop some of my key October style pieces below. VIEW MORE ▶︎

Horse racing has become synonymous with great men's style. And that is especially true when it comes to some of the sport's biggest events. Race-day style is about going all out, showing off some great details, and having some fun with your look. Over the years, certain piece have become bona fide race-day style staples—seersucker suits, bow ties, and straw hats, for example—and are absolutely classic options. Though I am a huge fan of tradition in menswear and men's style, there is always a time to dispense with it and go a different way, which is what I did with my look for the Preakness this year.
