Color is one of the most important considerations when it comes to purchasing new clothing. The color determines whether the new piece you are looking to add will get a lot of use, or simply be forgotten about two weeks down the line. Know what color works best for you,  because it will help you pick out garments which complement your existing pieces. If your wardrobe is full of green, then you could integrate tones of yellow (similar color), red (complementary color) or orange (contrast color) effortlessly into your looks. Make smart sssstyle choices with the right color, therefore it will be easy to mix and match.

Classic suits
Simon Spurr, Joseph Abboud and Ermengildo Zegna clearly stated that formal wear like suits is still very actual in the wardrobe of the modern man. We mean the classical suits in particular. No matter what fabric the suit would be made from (corduroy, velvet or a houndstooth pattern), it should be tailed to a T and grab everyone’s attention.

How to wear
If you don’t want to spend extra hundred bucks on another suit in your wardrobe, you can upgrade your old one by taking it to the tailor. But keep in minds that the shoulders should feel snug and touch the bottom of your jacket having the arms at the sides. Additional accessories like a fine leather bag or an umbrella will present you as a stylish guy.

Fall Must Haves

1. Pea Coats
The pea coat has a long history of keeping people warm with the oldest recorded mentioning of this fall/winter staple being in the early 1700′s and most known for being apart of the European and American navy winter uniform. With different colours and styles available it has made it easy to dress up or down.

4. Shawl Collar Cardigans
The shawl collar cardigan would most probably be my favourite must have item of the season. With the ability to add a different dynamic to your daily wardrobe, you can wear it under a blazer, with a suit, or by itself with a pair of jeans and boots. It also adds an incredible amount of warmth to your layers.

6. Thick Over-coats
This season over-coats can add a touch of luxury and elegance to you winter wardrobe. Most of my picks shown are from British fashion house Burberry who are famous for their amazing trench coats. Wear one over your suit to add an air of mystery, or wear one over a sweater and jeans for a more laid back casual look.

7. Leather Gloves
Leather gloves are essential if you live in a really cold area, in Australia you will most commonly see them in cities such as Melbourne, Canberra, and Sydney, though if you still want to add a little bit of elegance and you have an early morning start it does not really matter where you live.

10. Leather Brogues
Brogues are going to be my last must have staple, they add something a little different to the plain oxford lace up or loafers. Wear a pair of brown brogues with your indigo jeans to pop out from the crowd.
