5 fall style trends men should know about

It’s that time of year again – colder weather (unless you live in southern California), changing scenery, pumpkin-flavored everything, and new style trends. While it can be hard to keep up with the latest fashion trends, we’ve made it a bit easier for you by compiling a handy list of the hottest and easiest fall trends to track this year. You killed it in the summer, now bring your fashion into the fall.
Jackets. Quilted jackets are warm and fashionable. They come in many styles, bombers, motos, and blazers, and can be dressed up or down. These jackets will take you from the office to a night out effortlessly. Opt for a classy solid color (like black) or a two-tone for more attitude.
Fur. Hear us out: its warm and tough (Game of Thrones anyone?) and best in small doses. Incorporate some fur this season by adding a fur collar or scarf to your outfit. You’ll be different, trendy, and an instant statement-maker.
Graphic knits. The ugly Christmas-sweater trend has morphed into the graphic knit. Which is better because now you can wear your pun-ny, comfy sweater all season long. They’re a great conversation-starter and can be dressed up (add a collared shirt underneath) or down (pair with jeans and boots).
Funner suits. The suit is timeless, classic, and a necessity. But suit trends definitely change with the seasons. This year, people are favoring more adventurous colors, patterns, and cuts. If you’re worried about going overboard, dip a toe in the water first by incorporating subtle patterns and colors (like a low-key slim-line plaid print or a warm burgundy-black).
Turtlenecks. That’s right, neck sweaters are back. But this time, they’re more sophisticated and less-grandpa-y. The cowl-neck is a big hit, with more material and a looser neck.
A full head of hair is always in style. If you’re suffering from hair loss, schedule a consultation with us today. We can help you find the cause and the solution so you can feel confident and trendy in every situation this season.

An easy guide to dressing stylish

Men, it can be hard to dress stylish. Trends are always changing, finding the perfect fit can seem an impossible task, and prices seem to go up every season.
Dressing with style gives off the impression you’ve got it together (whether that’s true or not is beside the point). It’s not about copying anyone else, it’s about finding what works for you, what’s flattering, and what fits your budget.
Let us make it easy for you! We’ve compiled a list of tips on how to dress stylish, easily, and budget friendly. Seriously, you won’t be able to mess up these looks up and they’ll transcend the seasons!
The white button up
You can’t go wrong with this staple. Find a couple white buttoned shirts that fit your shape well and comfortably. For men who prefer a fitted shape, you’ll want to look for a ‘slim’ fit. Then, make this shirt your best friend. You can pair it with slacks for a business casual look, khakis for a day out, or jeans for a casual look. The white button up is the easiest, most versatile, and most affordable style tool in your closet. Use it!
Ditch the graphic tees
Your graphic tees are aging you (in the wrong direction). While graphic tees may be ‘cool,’ ‘witty,’ or ‘reminiscent,’ they aren’t doing your any favors in the maturity arena. If they’ve got sentimental anchors, keep them for sleep or work out tees.
Neutral colors are smooth
While bright colors will definitely make you stand out, it may not be in the positive light you’d hoped. Neutral colors are much more pleasing to the eye. This goes for jeans as well as tops. Acid wash or other artificial washes often give off the impression you’re trying too hard. Keep it cool with a neutral, darker-wash jean. You can’t go wrong with a good pair of Levi’s.

Tips for tying the best tie

Remember when men used to wear a tie and hat everywhere they went (circa 1920’s-1940’s)? Men’s style has no doubt changed quite a bit over the years. Casual attire is much more acceptable, not just in recreational aspects of life, but in the workplace as well.
While being able to tie a tie isn’t as important as it was for our fathers and their fathers, it’s still an important skill to possess. Tie-wearing occasions still pop up here and there, and not knowing how to tie a proper tie can leave you in a bad spot.
There are 3 main types of tie knots: the half-windsor, the double-windsor, and the four-in-hand. The half-windsor is the most commonly used knot, and the easiest to perfect. Simply follow the detailed instructions below, and show off your skills and style at the next professional event.
The half-windsor. This knot works for all occasions.

  • First, position the tie so the large end is on your right and the small end is on your left. The small end should be resting just above your belly button.
  • Then put the large end over the small end.
  • Next, loop the large end under the small end. Follow this by bringing the large end up and over the neck loop, bringing it down through the neck loop and resting it on your left side.
  • Swipe the large end towards your right side, and bring it through the neck loop from the inside.
  • Lastly, bring that end down through the front loop you’ve just made and tighten the knot by pulling down on the large end, adjusting as needed.

Congratulations! You’ve tied the perfect knot, and are ready for show it off.
