THE MUST HAVES IN MENS FASHION THIS SEASON
It's time to pack away that summer gear and finally get some style back into your wardrobe, finally we can gear up for the A/W weather. For me, mens fashion this season is all about versatile pieces that can be styled a number of ways. Below I've listed a few of my key wardrobe staples for the season..
1. THE TWEED JACKET
It's a great choice for the start of the cooler months, as the heavyweight wool is bound to keep you warm. More importantly it will also add texture to your outfit. A tailored tweed jacket can also be a great casual option for the office. Grey as pictured can be teamed with many different colours but tends to look best with black trousers and a white shirt or t-shirt.

2. THE CREW KNIT
The perfect layering piece. Whether it be over a plain white t-shirt or even under a coat. If the Autumn sun comes out, then just throw it over your shoulders to get an effortless sophisticated look.
3. THE TAILORED CHINO
More formal than denim and probably just as popular. The Chino, available in almost any colour, can be styled with just about anything. For me finding the right chino is all about the fit. My tip go for a slim leg fit with elastane in the compostion. The Country Road Slim Stretch Chino fits the bill. The elastane will give you a bit of stretch making them super comfy and easy to wear all day. They will also be perfect to roll up at the ankle to get the cropped look.
4. THE PLAIN WHITE TEE
My moto less is more and nothing says simple, easy style more than a plain white tee tucked into your favourite pair of chinos. Pair with some white sneakers and you have an Autumn look you will be wearing over and over.
5. THE OXFORD SHIRT
The shirt every guy should own. The Oxford shirt defined by the fabric weave is perfect for both casual and more formal occasions. Definately worth investing in a good one.
6. THE BOMBER JACKET
I'm a huge fan of the Bomber Jacket, with literally one for every day of the week (possibly month). The bomber jacket is really the ultimate casual jacket for men, with so many different ways to wear and style. However, to get the classic bomber jacket look pair with some denim jeans rips optional and a pair of high military style boots.
