Here in Quebec, where we experience 4 seasons in a day, transition pieces are key. This year may be the time for you to go through the elimination process; basically raiding your closet and making two piles. Whether it be a closet makeover or just a refresher, choosing a few of the following items will keep your look up-to-date with staples that will have you sartorially equipped for those transitional months.
for the Fall are a fashion statement. Knitted ties are great to change up textures throughout the seasons. Also, they are less formal making them versatile for a stylish and casual touch to your outfit.
Rich-coloured voluminous scarves give character to your outfit. If you are more conservative or are looking for something that matches everything, pick a wool blend scarf with one or two tones.
One of those accessories you will always need. Depending on your shoes and pants, you can choose to show them off or not. However, with men showing their ankles more and more, it is a great way to show off your personal style with some edgy patterns and keep your feet warm during the Fall.
Leather trainers are extremely practical: they are easy to clean, you can wear them pretty much anywhere, they are comfortable and really bring out that sport-luxe influence.
Similar to the desert boot, Chukka boots are appropriate for nearly any occasion; whether you are going out for drinks, trekking or heading to the chalet for the weekend.
DRESS IT UP
A wool or tweed sports jacket you can easily mix and match
Practical and smart-casual workwear worthy. Easily wear your sports jacket with formal pants to the office and pair them with your dark wash jeans. On the cooler days, don’t hesitate to wear a thin cashmere sweater under your sports coat.
A wool suit
A navy or charcoal wool suit should have a place in every gentleman’s closet. No matter the price, your suit should be cut to fit your body.
DRESS IT DOWN
Opt for a dark wash pair of jeans
We all know these are a staple; so it all comes down to the fit and choosing the right pair.
A nice sweater
A lightweight v-neck or round neck sweater will go far. It is a work wardrobe staple that can be worn under your blazer and works nicely for a clean shirt-sweater combination.
…and KEEP WARM
with a quilted vest and a transitional overcoat.
Be weather-ready with these two. We recommend to choose something that will contrast nicely with your suits.
