As a busy consultant, with an equally busy travel schedule, my husband likes clothes that not only look sharp but transition well from the boardroom to post work dinner meetings and drinks, plus work well for travel. He chimed in on some of his fall men’s picks and purchases below:
A Sharp Sport Coat
Sports coats look sharp and are versatile. They also are useful and serve as a fall jacket depending on the material. This fall, we were drawn to wool and muted plaid patterns, with blues, greys, and browns. Sport coats look especially nice with a crisp button down and no tie (I swoon over this look!). A good sports coat looks good with dress pants, khakis, or jeans.

One does not need to be a rider or a rocker for a leather jacket. Leather jackets are a nice fall piece and add a bit of edge to one’s wardrobe. Again, a leather jacket can be paired with pants for a dressy or casual look.

My husband has a million dress shirts (every time he heads to the dry cleaner, it is a mountain of shirts) but always needs more for work and as the seasons change. I always suggest the ones with a gingham or check pattern.

Solid Black Dress Pants // Pleated Trousers (available in black, brown, grey, navy, and taupe)
Belts are also a staple. Here, traditional browns and blacks:
As a lifelong equestrian (was in the saddle as soon as I could sit up), here is a horse stripe belt.
Basic Brown Belt // Another option Basic Brown Belt (comes in black, as well)
Cufflinks, Ties, Pocket Squares
Monogrammed—yes, please! Two options here for classic looks. As an equestrian, I also love anything with an equestrian look.
A great look is carmel colored brown shoes with a matching brown belt paired with blue dress pants.
Brown Dress Shoes with Bit // Black Dress Shoes with Bit
A nice Burberry scarf is a classic topper to any outfit. Not to mention they are exceptionally soft and durable.
