The transition from summer to fall generally means a bit more formality – instead of pushing the boundaries with casual styles for warm weather, menswear generally reverts to more pulled-together looks for the cooler months. Still, there is room for the right casual pieces in any fall wardrobe – the trick is to choose high-quality pieces. Buying a few luxury staples is a great way to refresh a fall wardrobe with durable items that will last much longer than fast fashion. The key to adding durable pieces to any wardrobe is to look for timeless styles that are well made and can be mixed and matched for versatility. The following luxury menswear pieces help transform any wardrobe from summer to fall while also bridging the gap between casual and pulled together.
Chelsea Boot Chocolate Calf by Grant Stone, $370
Nothing says fall like a new pair of boots. These Chocolate Calf Chelsea Boots from Grant Stone will take any fall look to the next level — from a casual weekend date to Monday at the office. The pristine chocolate leather comes from Annonay French Calf and is hand aged for a beautiful finish. The quality of the boots is immediately noticeable with their sturdy construction, the feel of smooth leather and the surprising level of comfort from the first use. With an easy slip-on style, the Chelsea design is both casual and sophisticated, reflecting the 19th century riding boot history of this timeless look. Customers are encouraged to contact Grant Stone for sizing support as many have been unknowingly wearing the wrong shoe size for years and the company strives to create shoes that customers will wear comfortably for decades.
Buck Mason Loomed Linen Fatigue Shirt, $175
Fall can be finicky with warm and cool weather on the same day. This Loomed Linen Fatigue Shirt from Buck Mason offers a warming layer that is lighter than a full jacket, but heavier than a regular button-down shirt. It’s made from a loose knit mid-weight linen, drapes beautifully over a t-shirt and has a durable yet soft feel. The fatigue shirt design adds an instant style boost to any wardrobe and is available in three colours: admiral navy, espresso and flint.
Field-Spec Rugby Crew by Buck Mason, $75
Fall is a great time to stock up on your wardrobe essentials, like this Field-Spec Rugby Crew from Buck Mason. It’s available in four colors and made from 100% cotton jersey for a soft yet durable feel. Inspired by vintage rugby shirts, the heavyweight fabric is meant to withstand cold weather and rough wear, but also wear nicely under a vest or jacket for a more pulled-together look.
Ambassador Blazer from Outerknown, $368
Sometimes you need to dress things up with a blazer and fall is the perfect time for a cozy one. This Ambassador Blazer from Outerknown goes well with trousers or jeans. It is made of 100% boiled wool, ideal for when the temperature drops. It also won’t wrinkle for travel – no matter how it’s packaged. As an added bonus, Outerknown is committed to ethical and sustainable business practices.

For those days when a full jacket is too much but there’s a chill in the air, this Essex Quilted Suede Travel Vest from Peter Millar provides core warmth without overheating.
