It’s hard to believe that summer has effectively vanished already, leaving us all to transition into cozy layers, warm knits, and out respective assortments of outerwear. To be fair, it’s not all bad — more layers means more diversity of attire, as well as a new season’s worth of new collections on the market from our favourite designers of all shapes and sizes. Proportion, structure, materials, and patterns are all proving quite playful this season, as you’ll see below. Our most recent Book For Men photoshoot covers all the key bases, and throws in a few surprises for good measure.
Just because the occasion requires dressing up doesn’t mean it has to be boring. Have fun with tailored looks that go beyond the usual colourways, fabrics, and cuts.
Keep It Casual
Elevate the basic building blocks of any great outfit with the addition of a luxurious knit and classic denim.
In the Shade
Opt for easy elegance this fall with a streamlined aesthetic in dark colours that lean moody and atmospheric.
Take layering to another level with an array of tactile, utilitarian fits that range from textured jackets to army-green trousers.
Bring together the unconventional by donning a pair of tailored leather pants with a luxurious knit.
Try a remix of tradition this season by getting playful with sizes and silhouettes. Think oversized pants with tailored jackets topped off with casual footwear for a grounding effect.
Looser fits and neutral hues bring a dash of laid-back style to standard business attire, lending your office wardrobe some WFH élan.
Sophistication redefined: a few touches from the realm of formalwear bring an air of polish to a more understated look.
Welcome cooler temperatures in style by choosing outerwear with quality liners and shearling accents.
Forget the old rules about bold patterns: take prints to the next level by layering matching designs across an entire outfit.
On the Clock
Top-of-the-line timepieces don’t have to be ostentatious. Keep it simple this season with low-key accessories that still exude luxury and elegance.
