Trying something new here. Looking to do a seasonal post on men’s clothing style. I am by no means a fashion expert, but I enjoy dressing up and putting some thought into the outfits that I wear. Several years ago, I worked part time at Banana Republic and absolutely loved the job. Retail is a beast, but I had fun helping guys figure out what to wear for work and other occasions. I had a full-time job in addition to the time I put in a Banana Republic. It’s strange… clothing is a bit therapeutic for me. When I would finish a long day of work, I enjoyed the change of pace of being in the store and interacting with random customers that would come in. If you know me well, then you know I absolutely love J.Crew. It’s been my favorite store for over a decade. H&M has recently grown on me as well.
Below are five fall outfits that I love and I think you’ll like too. I’ve attached a link to each clothing article so you can buy that particular piece yourself. Enjoy!
Love this slim fit navy blue suit from H&M. You have to buy the blazer and pants separately. Very affordable. Love to rock this with a bowtie. If it gets really cold, wear it with a grey v neck sweater.

We’re in the middle of a crazy college football season! As it gets colder, consider throwing on a sweater of your favorite college team. I like to wear more of the classic/vintage look. Just google “vintage ________ sweater” and you’ll most likely be able to find what you’re looking for. The sweatpants are from H&M. They fit great and are fantastic for wearing around the house, but also if you want to go for a bit of a sporty look when you go out. Can’t go wrong with the Reebok lifestyle classic shoes either.

Nothing says fall like a good tweed sport coat. Consider rockin a tweed waistcoat to go with your coat. A skinny tie would look fantastic with this outfit. For pants, I’m rockin the J.Crew stretch chino in 484 fit.
More of a chill look here. I love wearing this J.Crew coat with a simple v neck and some slim fit jeans. You have got to get the J.Crew Nike Waffle Racers. These are some of the most comfortable and versatile shoes. You can dress them up and throw on the chinos or rock em with sweatpants.
If you have any questions hit your boy up. I’ll be posting layouts of clothing on my Instagram account from time to time. Also, check out my Ivy League Style Pinterest board.
