There’s nothing I love more than suiting up during this season. When the weather cools down to the right temperature and you can add another dapper layer onto your outfit? It’s pure magic. Whether you are stepping out to a swanky Christmas party or celebrating the holidays with your friends and family, the perfect suit jacket can really set the tone. So let me lay out the fool-proof process to keeping things merry this time of year.
If you live in an area like my hometown of Dallas, you know that the weather can be a huge factor in what kind of jacket you choose for your holiday layer. Luckily we’ve had a cooler fall that allows us gents the ability to keep warm by the grace of our get up. This jacket is made of rich, warm wool and soft cotton that has been spun into a textured, complex material, discreetly hiding a handsome check pattern within. The pattern is lovely and really accentuates the overall playful feel of this piece.
I pair the fun check pattern with a classic straight leg pant that allows the jacket to shine but still adds it’s own texture to the mix to keep things exciting. Plus the great thing about these pants? They move with you and are the next logical step when you want to retire your tired ol’ blues but keep a classic five-pocket design in the arsenal. Of course no look is complete without a great shirt and to ring in the holiday season, don’t be afraid to mix in some color. This shirt is super fun. A colorful windowpane plaid brightens a lightweight cotton-twill sport shirt styled with a comfortable fit and a perfectly rumpled, softly slubbed feel. So when you’re sipping your eggnog or cider, someone will be eying your bright and cheery shirting selection.
Every guy needs a great pair of suede boots to rock during this fall season. These deliciously chocolate smooth suede pair provide the minimalist detailing of a simple Chukka boot updated a mature feel. The shoe looks great with jeans or dresses up business casual for work. I know you’ll be extremely pleased with the versatility of these boots and being able to wear them for many different occasions.
So there you have it. Suit up for the season and get into the spirit with this look that will keep on giving.
