What to Wear Next: Fall’s 10 Key Work Items

Like it or not, many of us spend more time at work than anywhere else. And the cold, hard truth is that this is where we can be judged the most. Our clothes mean something about how we project ourselves. And feeling confident about how you look is known to help you feel confident in all areas of your life. So, this week, we’re here to help in that regard. Some fresh Fall updates will make you feel modern and updated, ready to tackle the day. We talked about some of the fashion influences of the season in this week’s “ Clothes & Conversation” . And we’re applying that to your work attire here. Having a finely edited closet will even help you get out the door quickly in the morning…a few extra minutes of sleep is always welcome, isn’t it?
Let us know what you think in the comments below. Check back tomorrow (Wednesday) for our edited picks of 10 night out must-have for the season. Whatever the occasion, we’ve got you covered.

1. The Updated Sport Coat. A versatile pattern sport coat that you can wear to the office, and then out to dinner, is a must for a gent’s wardrobe. Peter Millar’s modern fit and use of dark blues in this plaid gives you the flexibility to dress this jacket up or down, depending on your work day. It looks great with charcoal wool dress pants or dark tan flat front pants - even dark wash jeans – and a simple oxford shirt. Alternatively, you can dress it up with a solid blue or white dress shirt and a solid or widely spaced pattern tie. Whatever you choose, the rich colors and masculine pattern will stay in your dressing rotation for a long time to come.

2. The Inspired Shirt. With the importance of everything blue and everything denim, David Donahue’s office-ready interpretation is a great update to your dress shirt collection. The various shades of blue in the glen plaid pattern almost create the look of washed denim, giving a sophisticated shirt a hint of street style that works great under a navy or grey blazer/suit. This is a modern, easier fit, but comes in a trimmer, contemporary fit, as well. Add a solid navy or grey tie to finish the outfit.

3. The New Shape of Pants. Corduroy is the great “in-between” for the office, when you don’t want to get too casual with jeans, but don’t need the formal look of a suit or wool trousers. Peter Millar’s NanoLuxe corduroy trousers are perfection. They are a modern fit, but updated with a somewhat trimmer leg, in a rich black color that looks fresh and updated for the season. Best of all, the fabric is extremely soft - and wrinkle free. They will become your go-to for all your work sweaters and button downs this season.

4. Pop of Pattern. A gent can easily add some new seasonal pattern to his office look with a tie, and this Eton of Sweden tie is on of our favorites. The circles and small dots in this navy/deep pinky red combination work well with any of your grey and blue suits and sport coats. And the even pattern can be worn with solid, fine line stripe, and micro check pattern dress shirts – basically any subtle pattern that’s not too bold. The 3” width is just right for a classic gent – modern but not too skinny.

5. Denim Reinterpreted. You may have several pair of work appropriate jeans in your closet, but denim transcends jeans this season. The denim shade of this Hugo Boss dress shirt looks so good with charcoal and navy sport coats, and even better when you add a dark navy, grey or deep wine tie for an ideal Fall look. Its spread collar also makes it an easy layer under sweaters in any dark, rich hue – especially a dark charcoal beefy cardigan. The fit is modern - ideal for the gent who wants a trimmer, but not skinny, fit to look updated and current.

6. The Fresh Look of Sweaters. Rich texture and interesting patterns are making sweaters look better than ever, and this Find from Brooks Brothers is one of our absolute favorites. When it comes to rugged tweeds and updates to that classic look, no one does it better. The lightweight Italian Donegal lambswool (that’s the base wool that has flecks of color in it) is combined with iconic Scottish Harris tweed (read more about its amazing origins and authenticity here) to create a stunning sweater for the office. Wear with charcoal wool pants, khakis or jeans. Layer it over a white button up oxford shirt or a blue chambray shirt. Add a solid dark grey or navy tie for a sartorial statement. The fit is relaxed, as Brooks Brothers is known for, so size down if you’d like a slimmer look (as shown on the model).

7. Fall’s Dusty & Deep Color. Robert Graham is a shirt resource we can never get enough of. Many gents add a few to their wardrobe’s each season, as they always create new patterns and fabrics that are updated for the season, yet have legs for seasons to come. And that is certainly true when it comes to this narrow stripe. Done in one of Fall’s best colors, a rich burgundy, the modern and easy fit works under blue and grey sport coats and sweaters. The iconic Robert Graham contrast trim on the collar and cuff add to the fun of the shirt and help make it an interesting office piece – and also an item that is great on its own with jeans or khakis for a casual night out.

8. The Key Item Coat. Since a coat is such a staple of this season’s wardrobe – both for its functionality and for its fashion statement – Vince’s blazer-style outerwear jacket is a hybrid that is spot-on. This is how you want to walk in to the office on any day you’re not wearing a suit or blazer. The quilting and charcoal color of the wool shell are just so dapper with its sport coat details. You’ll stay warm and look so good doing it. The fit is typical Vince – contemporary, but not too trim. Size up if you prefer an easy fit.

9. The Shoe Update. Lace up shoes and brogue detailing (that’s the perforations) continue to look smart for the office. This mink colored suede from Peter Millar, with a rubber crepe contrast sole gives these shoes a fresh new look that works with everything. The rich color and fabric are a nice alternative to your typical black or brown shoes that works with all of your staple pants and jeans. These are versatile shoes that you can dress up or dress down, so you’ll wear them all the time. (Tip: We always recommend spraying suede protector on your suede and nubuck products for weather protection. It won’t effect the color, and it will prevent stains.)

10. It’s All in the Details. A tie clip will add a modern, updated look to your outfit. This Hugo Boss brass clip has a black enamel inset that will give a dapper, classic look to all of your shirt and tie combinations. Since it creates a bit of a throwback feel, we like it best with a narrower tie, 3 ¼” or less.
