7 Days of Fall Essentials - Day 7!!!

Light Leather Jacket!!

Nothing is more essential than a leather jacket with a thin lining.  It can be casual or even dressed up when pared with the right clothing.  The classic brown colour is the way to go, but black is also a staple.  There are many different style to get so you just have to try them on and see which suits you best.  I personally prefer the motorcycle style jackets as they are always in style.  Whatever the style you choose make sure that it is short, up to your waist, anything longer and it becomes a leather coat.

7 Days of Fall Essentials - Day 6!!


The essential staple in any mans wardrobe, can be mixed and matched with just about anything!  In reality you don't really need that many pairs just 2 or 3 that work really well with you body type.  Some of the essential colours to have are a light blue, dark blue & black.  Remember get a pair that accentuates your looks - don't get jeans that are too baggy or too skinny, these are fades and get out of style really quick.  Once you have the right denim cut (ex. boot cut, straight cut, etc) that works for you, just build on it (layering), the style will always remain classic.  Check out this website for more info on denim (Esquire)

7 Days of Fall Essentials - Day 5!!

The Scarf!!

What you want is a lightweight scarf which works well for the Fall & Spring months.  So don't get  out that thick wool/cashmere scarf yet, get something in the light cottons.  The scarf can add a polished/ finished look to your overall style.  It can be worn with a blazer, overcoat, over your sweater, etc, endless combinations for which you can experiment with.  For those of you who are not familiar on how to tie a scarf I have put a diagram below.

7 Days of Fall essentials - Day 4!

Long Sleeve Sweater (Lightweight)!

A nice lightweight sweater that is made of Merino wool or cashmere is always a great addition to your wardrobe.  It's great to be worn over your shirt with a blazer or just on it's own.  The v-neck style is best with a shirt & tie but the crew neck is great with a shirt.  Have fun with them don't just stick with the grays or black colours.

7 Days of Fall Essentials - Day 3!!

Driving Gloves!!

A great pair of lambskin driving gloves always adds an extra fine touch to your overall look.  It's not cold enough for the winter gloves but, driving gloves which are not insulated are perfect for the cool weather, best to use in the early fall and late spring weather.  As the name imply's they really are great for driving, they provide better grip.  The main colours should either be tan/brown or black.

Tweed Blazer!!

A great staple item to have in your wardrobe.  The advantage to having a tweed, or a heavy wool blazer is that in cool weather you can get away without putting on a jacket, just dress it with a scarf and gloves.  In rainy conditions just put your trench over it.  The main colours to look at getting is grey, brown or a navy blue.

7 Days of Fall Essentials - Day1!!

The Trench Coat!!!
Now that Hurricane Sandy is gone the rain is still around, nothing more essential than a practical trench coat. The Trench coat was invented by Thomas Burberry, it was devised during the First World War, he created a breathable water-resistant fabric called gabardine.  The classic trench typically is double-breasted, belted coat, a buttoned flap over the right shoulder in the front and epaulets, though they are many different modern styles.  One should go out and try a variety of different styles to see which style/cut suits you best.  As for colour stay with the tried and true classics of khaki, black or navy blue.  If you like bright colours get a raincoat instead.  The advantage of the trench coat is that it acts like a light overcoat, which allows you to layerup!

To Boot or not to Boot?

Need boots?  We all generally think of boots for winter wear (when we see snow), but they are now the common men's footwear for fall/winter & spring.  Though there are so many styles you may be asking what do I get?  Well I've added some pics below for boot styles which I think would look good whether you dress up or down.  Really you want to look for a boot you can wear all around and get a color that goes well with most of your wardrobe.  Black is a safe bet, but many of the brown tones will work very well, in the end it'll be a personal choice.

The 4 Must Have Shoes that Every Guy Needs!!!

I would add a fifth shoe - The boat shoe which is great for the summer as casual wear it's almost in the same category as sneakers, but it provides you with a more polished look.  Now Guys remember that for the Oxfords, Brogue and Loafers you should start of with either a black or brown colour, these are the staples and will always work.  Once you have established your core colours than you can experiment with the more vibrant or tendy colours......

7 Days of Summer Essentials - Finale!!

The Linen Suit!!!  A must have for those summer weddings and cool evenings.  A great staple that will always be worn and can be mixed and matched.  The linen fabric is lighter and much more breathable than a wool suit.  Also you can get them with no lining or half lining on the inside, they also come fully lined.  The only thing to note with a linen suit is that is is much more prone to wrinkle, which is fine as it is part of the character of linen.

Indochino Linen Suit - $379.00 (CAN)

7 Days of Essential Summer Style - Day 6!!

Rope Belt!!  Or alternately a Canvas belt.  Either way you'll need a more casual look to with your shorts or chino's.  The Rope belt has made it's comeback last season but like everything else, the play with color is big this year especially with the canvas belts.  So if you don' have one yet, have some fun and get yourself one with a little color!

The Beige color is a safe bet and blends well with most color combinations.

The Navy Blue works well with light color clothing combinations.

7 days of Essential Summer Style - Day 5!!

Shades!!!  Perhaps one of the most important accessory you will need.  It will define your overall appearance!  I always stress to have two pairs of sunglasses one in black & one in Havana (brown).  Depending on what your wearing you'll need to color match it.  A third pair of sport sunglasses is also quite advisable.  Contrary to what others say never go cheap on your sunglasses, get yourself a name quality and it will last a life time!  So you're asking whats in style this summer, well.......the big aviator style sunglasses have had their popularity run and the wayfarers are starting to get old.  Don't get me wrong these are great classic styles that will always be in.  But the style making the comeback are the keyholed or often referred to as the Steve McQueen Persol.

Either way sunglasses with a noticeable frame is were it's heading!

7 Days of Summer Essentials - Day 4!

NATO watch strap!  As with everything else this summer some bold colors on the watch strap look great! The military look of the NATO watch strap has always been around, but this summer it's a must have accessory.  So if you don't feel like buying a new watch you can just buy the straps and retrofit one of your existing watches.  Pictured below are the George Jenson NATO watch straps which sell for about $65.00.

Or you can get yourself a new watch - Seiko has a few automatics out in their Seiko 5 line which come with some colorful watch straps and the prices can be found online anywhere from $120 - $180.

Seiko SNZG15 pictured above - approx retail $170.00
