10 Ways To Look More Stylish This Fall Winter / Autumn Season


Welcome back to the Gentleman’s Gazette! In today’s video, we discuss 10 tips that
help you to style and create better men’s fall outfits. 1. Wear heavier fabrics with an interesting texture
and pattern. For a fall wardrobe, you want to go with flannel
or tweed because it has a slightly fuzzy texture and it just creates a more comfortable look
that’s perfect for fall/winter. In terms of weight, I suggest you go with
about 12 oz. or 350 grams per meter, it’s a good balance between being warm, between
a nice drape, but also not overheating. For business, you can go with gray flannel,
for example, that is mottled, made up of different kinds of gray which give you that slightly
more casual yet still formal enough look. For a sport coat, you can go with oatmeal
colors, browns, greens, burgundies, and anything in between. Probably the most popular pattern is herringbone
which I’m wearing here right now in a combination of burgundy and green which is rather unusual. Oftentimes, you’ll see brown and dark brown,
oatmeal and beige, or anything of that kind. Alternatively, you can also have a windowpane
or a district check, houndstooth, shepherd’s check, all of these patterns look really good. Of course, you can also have a prince of Wales
check or a Glenn check jacket and basically, there are no limits to what patterns you can
wear. You can be bolder with the pattern but more
subdued in the colors. 2. Opt for fall colors. Unlike summer colors, fall colors are generally
more muted, that means rich, soft colors such as burgundy or burnt orange, you can also
go with bottle green, bronze, or dark blues, purples, or blues and browns. if you want
to wear bright colors, limit it to one bright color and keep everything else toned down. You want these duller colors because it goes
well with nature. For neckwear, that means a madder color which
always has the backside of a madder blue and in the front it creates this beautiful, rich
but not too bright shade of a color. So always bear in mind, go with subdued colors
and dial it down a tone, plum, bottle green, burnt orange, you name it, they all work. 3. Mix the colors, the textures, and the patterns. The art of matching your accessories with
your garments lies in the subtle harmony of all elements. That means you want to have a contrast on
the one hand so things are different yet they have to be tied together so you have kind
of like an orchestra where everything harmonizes even though they’re different instruments. For example right now, I’m wearing this burgundy
and green herringbone,I pair it with this very pale, yellowy shirt which is softer than
a white shirt and so it’s just a little more subdued. I’m wearing a tie that has orange in it and
blue tones and it just goes well with the shirt and the jacket. For the pocket square, we pick up some of
these colors in earthy tones but we set a contrast on the dark background. The jacket I’m wearing is tweed, the tie is
wool challis and the pocket square is wool as well and the shirt is cotton. Overall, the pocketsquare is not fussy but
the jacket is and neither is the tie, so it works quite well together. Everything has a soft texture, alternatively,
I could have used something like a madder silk pocket square because it has a very matte
shine to it and it’s just a different texture. Don’t go for something super shiny like satin
but something matte that is different enough but ties in together with the color or the
pattern but it shouldn’t be too similar otherwise, the observer doesn’t know where to look and
it’s confusing. 4. Go with distinct, fall neckwear.That could
either be bow ties or neckties. The best items for fall, in my opinion, are
wool challis which is a wool and it’s matte by nature, and the colors are more subdued. Next up is madder silk which has a wonderful
touch, it’s usually slightly gummy and the backside of the fabric always has this kind
of madder blue which comes through and it creates these marvelous subdued shapes in
the front. Another popular kind of fall ties is the knit
tie either in a crunchy silk with some texture or in wool with a fussy, soft touch. You can find all of specific fall ties in
our shop, here. 5. Round up your look with a fall pocket square. Just like with ties, you want to stick with
wool challis or madder silk. You can also go with cashmere or anything
else that is fussy and has a nice subdued look. When matching your pocket square to your tie
and your outfit, you want to have a different pattern that picks up another color in the
outfit. Make sure the pattern of your pocket square
is not too similar in size and scale to your tie, otherwise, it looks confusing. Also, never wear the same pattern of pocket
square and tie. 6. Reorganize your closet. Your goal is to create wonderful, good-looking,
fall outfits. You need to see what you have in your closet
so you can combine properly. That means, taking out all the noise. Therefore, you have to remove your summer
items, you want to get rid of all the shorts in seersucker and add all the vests, corduroys,
and fall accessories into one place so you can see them and come up with better ideas
on how to combine them. Most people try to avoid doing it but it really
helps unless you have such a large wardrobe where you can store all your fall items in
one place and summer items in another one. 7. Brown shoes are your friend. The beauty about brown is that it comes in
a thousand shades and none is exactly like the other. On top of that, it creates a beautiful patina
which goes well with fall outfits. Brown suede goes particularly well with flannel,
you can also have tan shoes, or oxblood loafers. To learn more about how to wear brown shoes,
and what fabrics and colors you should combine it with, check out this video here. 8. Wear a boutonniere with your outfit if you
have a buttonhole on your lapel. Right now, this jacket doesn’t have a buttonhole
so I’m not wearing a boutonniere. If it has one, I’ll add one. Personally, my favorite for fall is an edelweiss
boutonniere because it’s a soft white, it looks marvelously realistic, and it can be
worn with almost any sport coat I have. Other good options include a blue cornflower
or a slightly pink flower because it ties together well, the browns, the greens, the
plums, the burgundies, the greens, and the mustard yellows. 9. Wear scarves, trench coats, and quilted jackets. Scarves are ideal for fall winter because
not only do they keep you warm, but it’s another element that makes you quite stylish. If you don’t have one already, get a trench
coat because it keeps you dry and when it’s raining it’s warm enough to keep you comfortable
but not so heavy that you easily overheat. If it gets colder, you can also button in
a wool liner that will keep your core warm and your sleeves a little cold but if you
wear a jacket underneath you should be fine. Welcome back to the Gentleman’s Gazette! In

what w e recommend, and the details, please check out our in-depth guide here, with a

you warm, it’s lightweight. it’s durable, to learn more about this wonderful addition
to any gentleman’s wardrobe, please check out our guide here. 10. Last but not the least, get an overcoat.
If you live in a colder climate where even fall can be quite cold and overcoat is your
best companion and you can also wear it in the winter and early parts of spring when
it’s still really cold. I really like this overcoat for fall because it has this large
scale donegal tweed, herringbone pattern, which is just much more casual and fall like
than a plain, navy or gray or black overcoat. It creates a visual interest and it’s fun
wearing when and combining it. Bonus tip number eleven: Unlined gloves are
some of the most underrated things for a fall wardrobe. Not only do they look extremely
elegant because they’re so thin and there’s no chasmere or alpaca lining, they’re also
just warm enough to keep your hands cozy at the same time they also protect your skin
from rougher outside elements. Personally, I love wearing unlined gloves during this
season especially when I drive, when I walk outside, because it always elevates my outfit
and adds a touch of uniqueness and elegance. Just make sure you get them in colors that
contrast with your coats and for a selection of gloves and other fall accessories, please
