Fall Layering

The art of layering is key to sophisticated menswear as the temperatures drop, but let’s face it: dressing shouldn’t be complicated. The trick to pulling it off is not trying too hard. Check our fall play-by-play guide below to win over warmth while still looking sharp.

Update your fall essentials: warmth gets reworked in a military-inspired Snorkel Parka over a classic denim jacket. A button down and tie lay neatly underneath, making all day meetings to evening RSVP’s a fail-proof mission.

Cool-weather refined: give your basics a wake-up call with a check-printed blazer over a classic merino v-neck. Ground it out in fall-toned chinos and rugged moto boots—and wrap it up with a cashmere infinity scarf for added dimension.

Stay structured but not rigid: a timeless wool blazer is one of the most versatile layering pieces you can own for the season. Walk the line between dressy and casual by teaming it over a modern sweater vest—balanced with a contrast colored tie and dark-washed denim.



Suit up in the unexpected: Dapper up by pairing modern classics. A colorblocked blazer over a monochrome button-down works with slim-fit suit trousers to keep it sleek on those crisp fall days.


Show fall how to rock: An acid-wash denim vest not only lends a rebel edge, but is one of the coolest pieces you can pile over anything (year-round). Team a similar vest with your favorite tee and plaid flannel for a shot of style and a hit of warmth—rolling the sleeves is never a bad idea.
