5 Essentials for your Fall Business Wardrobe

It’s time to dust off your fall wardrobe and head into the season with looks as crisp and fresh as the air. Here are our top picks to spruce up your fall business attire:

1. A versatile fashion sportcoat

Select a style you can wear with a dress shirt and tie for the office, or pair with denim and knitwear for a more casual look. Branch out with a bolder pattern or brighter color.

2. Modern fitting, flat-front dress pants

Choose a dress pant from a quality brand like Ballin with the Comfort-EZE waistband, and you won’t sacrifice comfort for a more modern silhouette.

3. A classic knitwear piece from St. Croix

A fashion cardigan or pull-over sweater can trade off with your sportcoat for a different, yet still very sophisticated office look. Wear a mock or polo collar knit under your coat in place of a dress shirt. Versatility and timelessness make the investment in quality knitwear worth every penny.

4. A dress shoe with some style and flair

If you’re going to have some fun this season, start with your shoes. Try a classic look in a new color, like the blue cap-toe oxford by Allen Edmonds.

5. A premium writing instrument

It’s the fashion accessory that gets forgotten. Whether you’re signing important documents or hand-writing a thoughtful note, notice the difference it makes when you sport your own premium pen. Faber-Castell writing instruments also make a great professional gift!

Short Sleeve Shirt Style for Men

Trend Alert: The short sleeve, button-down shirt is making a comeback. No longer just reserved for the studious, pocket-protector wearing guy, short sleeve shirts are here this season in many shapes, forms, and fabrics. Nearly every brand offers some version of this style – from Tommy Bahama linen shirts, to modern fitting Rodd & Gunn cotton wovens, to Kuhl quick-dry camp shirts with UPF 15 for your outdoor adventures.

Check out these great looks we’ve put together for summer:

Look # 1 – Lakeside Leisure

For a day that begins with a casual coffee meeting and becomes an afternoon on the boat, wear this breezy Tommy Bahama linen shirt unbuttoned to show off a coral high v-neck tee. Paired with 34 Heritage five-pocket pants in stone and Tommy Bahama Felton slip-on shoes, you are set for a day to relax in style. Don’t forget your personal writing utensil made by Faber-Castell.

Look # 2 – Work Ready

If your office vibe is trendy and casual, muster your inner hipster and give this summer look a try. Maker & Co button-down shirt in classic gingham (we love the Corozo buttons) paired with fashion denim from 34 Heritage and your favorite nerdy glasses (these readers are from Scojo).

Fit tip: To pull off this look, find a trimmer fit shirt that flatters your shape and is not boxy. Sleeves should end mid-bicep and you should only be able to fit a few fingers between it and your arm.

Look #3 – Party Cool

For your summer barbecues or live-music date, go for a Kuhl camp shirt layered over a pop color maize yellow tee from Tasc, offering tons of performance qualities like bamboo, UPF15, and moisture wicking. On the bottom, we love these new stretch cotton cargos from Thaddeus for the ultimate in comfort.
