As the last rays of summer dwindle over the horizon, it's time to think about wardrobe choices for autumn.
So here's a quick thought on essential clothing selection from our Sartoriale stylist with some top picks to see you through September and October 2016.
1. Denim Jeans
A pair of fresh raw denim jeans is a definite sign that the weather is cooling down and fall will soon be upon us.
While it takes a few rugged wears to break them in properly, your jeans then become your best friend for the season.
Match them with sneakers (or the chukka boots below) to bring out their best.
2. Chukka boots
When buying items that can work with almost anything in your clothes closet, you can't go far wrong with a pair of chukka boots.
Made in a sleek last with a chiseled toe, this beautiful pair by Kiton can work in an outfit with haute tailoring just as easily as with your casual staples, too.
Another great feature is that they are hand made from deer leather, which is so incredibly soft that they feel akin to slipping on your favorite comfortable pair of house slippers.
3. Sport Coat
A cashmere sportcoat is the ultimate sign of casual sophistication, never mind being absolutely delicious to wear.
The warm soft feel of the fabric, combined with the light Neapolitan construction offers unrivalled feel for the proud wearer, whilst simultaneously nailing the smart casual vibe.
4. Button Down Shirt
When the occasion doesn't call for a tie, your go to item should be a dapper button down shirt.
Kiton are world-renowned for making some of the finest shirts on the planet. The 22 step painstaking process that goes into creating every shirt by the the Kiton master tailors can instantly be felt when you slip one on.
Light blue is an indispensable and safe choice. However, it is always good to add a touch of personality to your outfit with details; here it is the subtle houndstooth pattern in this sky blue cotton number below which is almost $500 cheaper than the RRP now on Sartoriale.
5. Rain Jacket
Wear the blue side along with your blue suit or dark denim. The tan version would go well with a gray suit or dark blue chinos.
It's designer, lightweight, water resistant, easy to carry around with you and unaffectedly stylish. What more can one ask for in a piece for your Fall wardrobe?
