It’s time to swap shorts for pants and cotton tees for woolly sweaters. Yes, fall is here. Here’s what every guy should add to (or be thankful he already has in) his closet this season.
Military-inspired pieces (rag & bone, shown above) are invading the fashion world. Jackets, overcoats, boots, pants and accessories get a utilitarian edge for fall. The best part? Most pieces are supposed to look worn-in, so it doesn’t matter if you beat up your purchases a bit.

Modern three-piece suit
The classic three-piece suit gets a modern makeover with designers going for slimmer, quirky styles — Michael Bastian’s corduroy suit is one of our favorites. Bonus: The jacket, pants and vest can be worn separately and dressed up or down.
