Seemingly overnight, sweater season has arrived.  We’re looking forward to breaking out some classics and adding a couple of new pieces to the collection this year.  One that has really piqued our interest comes from Bonobos.  While their pants have maintained a hefty portion of real estate in our closet over the years, the rest of their collection is making a play to do the same this Fall.  Especially the Wool Blend Shawl Popover.

Have ever found yourself stressed out while spending time around a campfire?  Neither have we.  Whether you’re roasting marshmallows at your favorite campsite, or just having a drink with friends around a backyard fire pit, there’s something about some crackling wood and an open flame that’s good for the soul.  If you agree, we have a feeling you’ll like today’s Bowtie Friday pick.  It’s the Campfire Bow from our friends at Southern Proper.

We’ve been pretty outspoken about how impressed we are with the collection that our friends at Huckberry have curated over the years.  It seems that every time we visit their site, we find out about a new brand, or see a new item, that we absolutely love.  Well, on our last visit we definitely fell in love.  This time it was with the new Rancourt Knox Boot.

The first time we met the team from Blue Claw, we oogled over their flagship Worton Weekender for what seemed like hours.  Though we eventually added one to our rotation, that day we left with something a bit more low key, a waxed canvas iPad case.  There was just something about the canvas that was speaking to us and we had to take a piece of it home.  Late last week Blue Claw released their Weekender with waxed canvas in place of the classic ballistic nylon, and the results are simply outstanding.

A great fleece can be absolutely invaluable this time of year.  A perfect outer layer as temperatures start to drop, and a great mid layer when things get really cold, this casual piece is one that sees heavy wear from us every Fall.  This year, we’re going to give our beloved Patagonia a break from time to time thanks to the new Appalachian Pile Pullover from Southern Marsh.

This time of year our weekend wardrobe consists mostly of jeans, long sleeve t-shirts, and a ball cap.  While we have a few hats that will always remain in the rotation, we’re always on the lookout for something new to mix in, and this year it looks like the new addition will come from Over Under.  Their new corduroy hats are simply fantastic.

We knew it was only going to be a matter of time before Harry’s expanded their lineup, and just a couple of weeks ago they took the wraps off of the latest addition to their collection.  For the first time they’ve released something that doesn’t involve shaving; a Daily Face Wash.

As the seersucker and linen get put away for the year, we’re finding ourselves really looking forward to going all in on plaid this Fall.  There are a few shirts that we’ve been itching to wear for a few weeks now, and a couple of others that we’ll be adding to the rotation very very soon.  One of which is the just released Eastman from Mizzen+Main.

Never have we regretted wearing a striped bowtie.  Ever.  It’s the one look that will never be out of style, is always in season, and goes with just about everything.  This week, our bowtie Friday pick is the All American Stripe Bow from High Cotton Ties.

Sometimes you just have to bite the bullet and splurge on something.  We’d recommend said purchases be few and far between if you’re on a budget, and if you do pull the trigger on something pricey, make sure that it’s something that you can wear regularly for years to come.  Our next splurge purchase is going to be the Jameson Matte Alligator Belt from our friends at Martin Dingman.
