Fall Essentials for the Young Professional Man

There’s no denying that one of the major upsides of these cooler months is the increasing versatility they lend us when it comes to our wardrobe. So, where to start? The essentials, of course…

jac by jacflash, Scarf $45
A man’s neckwear choice can make or break an outfit, so sticking to something classic is always the way to go. This black scarf is not too thick to wear during those early fall or late spring evenings and is the perfect size to wear on a casual Sunday stroll, to a meeting or even to a gala.   

Alternative Apparel, Fedora $85 
Inject style into your everyday look by adding this all-purpose, 100% wool, moderate brimmed fedora by Alternative Apparel. Choosing a hat is an important decision, as what you wear on your lid can immediately define you. 

Scotch & Soda, Cardholder $45
Finally finding the perfect suit can be tough. And cramming a big and bulky wallet into your pocket, after you have had your suit perfectly tailored, is a big no-no. Whether you are off to work or heading out for the night, it is worth investing in a slim wallet or cardholder. This Scotch & Soda cardholder has room for all of your essential credit cards, cash and business cards. 

Komono, Magnus Watch $130
If you are the type of man that changes his watch with every outfit, a Komono watch is most certainly for you. This watch is reasonably priced, comes in a variety of styles and is made of the finest materials. We love the ‘Magnus’ as its large 46mm case clearly separates the men from the boys. It’s full-grain, raw leather wristband, metal case and Japanese Quartz movement will surely stand the test of time. It is also water resistant up to 3atm, which makes this watch great for travelling.

JD Fisk, Antwerp Boot $215
Wearing a boot does not have to be casual these days. Dress boots allow far more wearm whether you are dressing for the office, a night out, or simply going for a casual weekend look. They can add a contemporary look to a classic one. The Antwerp boot by JD Fisk has beautiful stitch detailing, eye hooks at the ankle, a cap toe, cushioned insole and man-made outsole for additional comfort and last.  

Twyford,  Sweat Pant $175
One of the season’s hottest trends is the modern sweat pant. Seen all over Fall 2013 runways, this season is evidently all about tailored comfort. The Twyford black button-down sweat pant should be included among every YP man’s fall essentials simply due to it’s versatility. This is a sweat pant you don’t have to think twice about when leaving the house. As winter approaches, the last thing anyone wants to do is coordinate an outfit as you run out to grab coffee. Offering the comfort of your “favourite sweats,”  but with a much sleeker and stylish presentation, these pants were designed and constructed with no details being overlooked. 

Don’t worry, ladies, we didn’t forget about you…
