Outfit yourself in versatile menswear pieces that look and feel great from every angle, letting you easily mix and match, or layer up or down as your weekend unfolds. Here’s the inside track on the top three essentials we think men should stock up and save on this season.
If your approach has always been bigger is better, give us a chance to change your mind. Avoid upsizing or buying styles that are overly baggy. The stiff, extra material disguised as roominess only adds bulkiness that—really—isn’t any more comfortable. Instead, try Britches denim on for size in a slimmer cut with stretch and be totally satisfied by how great it looks—and feels—on you.
However, if it’s true comfortability and broken-in style that you crave, Point Zero’s flex-waist, stretch denim is where it’s at. Their modern fit jeans are guaranteed to move with you all weekend long.
If fall had one signature item it would be the sweater, so it makes sense to stock up on this seasonal essential. For a smart lineup of options, buy a few different styles of big and tall men’s sweaters to have on hand. A classic crew neck in a bold colour by Ben Sherman layered over a basic tee is a great look when you’re out all day through midday highs to evening lows.
For a more finished look, pair a chunky cardigan or wool blend v-neck sweater over a button down shirt. Or get elevated casual style that’s effortless with quarter-zip sweaters from Daniel Hechter Paris, Haggar and Jones New York.
For those unseasonably warm afternoons or when going to crowd-heavy events, invest in a vest. Try new, lightweight puffers that provide warmth without volume in basic black by Point Zero or olive by Projek Raw.
Lastly, this fall buy a few go-to pieces that combine fit and function with a bit of fashion, too. The kind of clothes you want to live in, play in, stay warm or cool in. But most of all, fall wardrobe essentials that add style to your weekend, on your terms.
