As much as I love rocking my short shorts and linen shirts in the sweltering heat of summer, autumn is where I thrive. The textures and layers of fall just suit me much better. My closet is overflowing with crewneck sweatshirts, lightweight corduroy pants, and chore coats just waiting for the seasons to change.
Thankfully, our friends at Huckberry have given us a taste of what’s to come in a fall ’22 preview. This collection is made for cooler temps and brisk nights around the campfire. From hefty denim to colorful beanies and everything in between, these garments are go-tos garments for the months ahead.
Billy Reid Denim Shirt
The denim shirt is an iconic cool-weather menswear staple. Billy Reid takes it up a couple of notches with this handsome overshirt sporting brass buttons and Western-style double-breasted pockets. Plus, the distressed denim gives this shirt a distinctly vintage feel. The double dye color option is a standout, but the whole lineup looks stellar. Pair these with some boots and a pair of jeans in a different wash and you’ll be all set this fall.
Outerknown Offshore Chamois Shirt
If you’re looking for a slightly softer top this fall, check out this chamois option from Outerknown. The 100 percent organic cotton adds some heft, but it will also keep you cozy and comfy all season long thanks to the Portuguese flannel material. It’s a relatively understated piece, but the fun color options, particularly the evergreen, are sure to add some pop to your ensemble.
Wills Cable Knit Wool Sweater
Channel your inner Chris Evans and embrace the cable knit sweater. This number from Wills works just as well on the docks as it does in the city. A stylish crewneck sweater made from South American cruelty-free merino wool, this piece will keep you warm and looking your best.
Howler Brothers Spellbinder Parka Jacket
Once the temperatures start dipping, you’ll want to have a trusty jacket on hand — ideally, one that you can layer into your existing outfits without looking like a little kid in a puffy jacket. The folks at Howler Brothers provide the perfect warm and stylish jacket. The Spellbinder Parka is an insulated jacket made from tough synthetic fabrics, so it’s durable and comfortable. Interior pockets allow you to store your gear, making this a great jacket for the trail.
Flint and Tinder 365 Corduroy Pant
Need a pair of fall-ready pants to last you all season? Flint and Tinder’s 365 Corduroy Pant is perfect for the cooler weather. Whether you’re lounging around the house or hitting the town on a chilly night, these pants will keep you warm and comfortable. Plus, the tapered fit offers a touch of tailoring so you’ll look great with the aformentioned denim shirt and a pair of stylish boots. Plus, these soft and cozy corduroys were made in a sustainable factory, so you can feel good wearing these eco-friendly pants.
Need a pair of hiking boots to complement that Howler Brothers Parka? Try the new CloudTrax kicks from On. These trail shoes are tough enough to handle whatever the great outdoors can throw at them. Plus, they look pretty damn good. A stable, grippy outsole and cushioned, comfortable upper gives you extra protection. Plus, On’s Speedboard technology propels you forward with each step so you can handle a fall hike with ease.
Rhodes Footwear Roper Boot
If you want to embrace your inner cowboy, turn to Rhodes boots. Perfect for whiskey sipping around a fall campfire, the Rhodes Roper Boots are oh so clean. The guaranteed quality fit means you’ll feel great wearing them, plus these boots offer breathability and durability thanks to the premium suede uppers and leather outsoles. And, perhaps most importantly, they just look cool. With easy-to-put-on side straps and comfortable pigskin lining, these handcrafted boots will become your go-to footwear.
As the seasons change, it might get become difficult to pick out weather-appropriate dress shoes. Perennial loafer favorites Astorflex have the solution with their lovely Lobbyflex slip-ons. These handmade moc-toe loafers sport an eco-friendly leather construction with soft suede leather and calfskin lining. The result is a comfortable pair of shoes that will continue to look better as you wear them. While the design feels distinctly modern, Astorflex ties together the look with a traditional leather sole so you can embrace the authentic Italian style.
Keep your head properly protected with one of Huckberry’s colorful beanies. Once the weather drops, you’ll want some cozy headwear. And Huckberry’s lineup of fisherman-style beanies is perfect for autumn. Choose from any of the fall-appropriate colors and enjoy the soft and warm blend of acrylic, wool, nylon, and spandex. The Mustard or Orange would look particularly good around a campfire with your favorite fall beer.
Stetson The Bozeman
Complete the cowboy look with a classic Stetson hat. The Bozeman is one of the hat manufacturer’s iconic styles with a wool felt construction, leather hat band, and sufficiently wide brim. It’s ideal for those sunny days of early fall and the crushable design means you can stash it in your backpack without worrying that it will lose its shape.
Flint and Tinder Waxed Canvas Tote
Sure, you could bring any old tote bag to the farmer’s market this fall. But why not opt for the lovely waxed canvas back from Flint and Tinder? With its nylon body and leather straps, this is a tote that will last for a long time. Sturdy and stylish, the Flint and Tinder tote offers plenty of room inside with a flat bottom design, fully lined water-resistant interior, and included laptop sleeve. Plus it offers four exterior top entry pockets for your smaller EDC gear.
Shinola Runwell Field Watch
Last but certainly not least, you’ll want to get a seasonally appropriate timepiece this autumn. The Shinola Runwell Field Watch is perfect for the fall. With three colorway options, you can’t go wrong with this Detroit-made watch. The nylon strap is ideal for outdoor activities while the carbide-coated scratch-resistant stainless steel case makes it plenty durable. And, thanks to the immense versatility of the field watch style, the Shinola Runwell is a watch that will serve you well for date night and pumpkin picking.
