Falling into Autumn with Ted Baker
If one thing is clear, it’s that autumn is here on the east coast. Time for heavier fabrics, sweaters, layering, leather dress boots, and all the other seasonal menswear-related things that make it my absolute favorite season. I spent this past weekend with friends in New York City celebrating my birthday and enjoying the first taste of fall air. I also had the opportunity to stop by Ted Baker to check out some of their new fall selection. Here, I’ve styled three of my favorites – all perfect for stepping up your fall style.

Looking through my closet recently, I thought, “Man, how many white shirts does a guy need?” You could say the same for navy blazers. But it’s important to have staple pieces in seasonal fabrics. This wool-blend navy blazer is pretty much the perfect weight for fall and can easily pull double duty as a blazer for the office or as a go-to piece of outwear on a chilly morning.
A waistcoat is a perfect extra layer for fall. Think of it as a dapper alternative to a cardigan. I talk exhaustively about increasing the versatility of any suit you buy by adding a waistcoat, but don’t forget that an ‘odd waistcoat’ can be very interesting. I’ve always been impressed with Ted Baker’s selection – I even pinned one on my #pinpoinTED board last month. Other than going custom, it’s hard to find OTR pieces with this kind of detailing.
Change up your regular cotton chinos with a pair of brushed cotton. These are softer, warmer, and a great color for fall. All of these items, as well as everything from Ted Baker, will be 20% off tomorrow (October 9th) and tomorrow only. It’s the perfect time to pick up some great new pieces for fall.
Thanks for reading.
