It may still be a tad bit hot outside, but fall styles are hitting the floors of every store across the U.S. I can’t help but get excited about wearing all of my fall clothes again…comfy cardigans, jeans, boots, scarves…love it all! We just released our Pre-Fall Fashion Essentials for Women blog last week, and we know, we need to show the men some love too. To help you guys out, we have pulled a few pre-fall fashion essentials for men to help you shop for fall. These pieces will help you transition effortlessly into cooler weather and carry you through until next spring.
Military Inspired Jacket
Vans Canvas Jacket (available in select stores)
Military inspired style is definitely in for men this fall. This jacket from Vans is the perfect transition piece to go from cool to warm weather, thus deeming it one of the most important pre-fall fashion essentials for men. The canvas materials is tough, warm, and manly, and the dark military green will go with anything. A utility jacket like this can be layered with button-up shirts or plain tees, worn with jeans or khakis, no matter what, you will be looking fly.
1/4 Zip Sweater
Mens 1897 Dark Wash Jeans, Patagonia Better Sweater, Blue 1897 Tee
1/4 zip sweaters are an absolute must-have for fall. All you have to do is put on a 1/4 zip and you automatically look well put together and suitable for a date or a family outing. This Patagonia sweater featured in the picture is extra warm, comfortable, and incredibly durable. You can layer your sweaters with a plain v-neck tee shirt, like the 1897 tee featured above.
Plaid Button-Up Shirt
1897 Jeans, Fox Plaid Flannel, A. Kurtz Hat
Plaid button-up shirts should be a staple for every man’s wardrobe. Whether it be lightweight cotton or flannel, a plaid button-up will never do you wrong. Button-ups can be dressed up or down for whatever occasion you need; simply pair with some jeans or khakis and you will be looking snazzy. An 1897 chambray button-up is hitting the web soon, so be on the look out for more fall wovens from Glik’s!
Exclusive only to Glik’s, the 1897 Men’s denim line was introduced in 2010 by the Glik’s brothers. Jim Glik saw a demand for quality denim amongst the hard working, blue-collar male customers who frequently visited the Glik’s store locations. His goal was to give them the opportunity to purchase moderately priced men’s jeans that were versatile enough to handle their own in any situation. 1897 denim’s attention to stitch detail, fabric wash, and overall versatility and durability is comparable to higher price point denim lines. The biggest selling point to his brand is that 1897 Men’s Denim can be purchased for under $60. There are dozens of pocket styles and denim washes to choose from, so pick up a few to add to your fall wardrobe.
Guys may not as readily admit their love of shoes as women do, but we all know you guys get just as excited about shoes as we do. The Glik’s web store doesn’t have a huge selection of shoes for men, but our stores sure do. Stop into your nearest Glik’s store to see a full selection of men’s shoes. Featured above are some of the new styles of Vans that we love. One is a denim chambray that would look great paired with some colored twill pants or khakis, and a pair of grey Vans with red accents for a more dressy look. Vans will never go out of style, and you can work them in with any outfit, they are a no brainer!
These boots from Crevo can be paired with any denim or a pair of khaki pants for a slightly more dressy look. Roll up your jeans for a hipster take on this pair of manly kicks.
