What to wear when the leaves begin to fall...

The leaves are falling and so is the rain; here are a few weather appropriate essentials and must haves for 2018’s Autumn season. In this piece we feature casual on-the-go outerwear for creative and season forward individuals. Colours involve festive tones of rouge, deep harvest orange, warm hearty yellows and an eclectic array of deep browns; get ready with us and have your motives in check with fresh kicks, dearing hats, and much more! 


1. Fedoras

You heard right, fedoras haven’t left and they’re great for casual morning on your way to work and crossing into the evening with a quick drink with some buddies, it’s an air of class when you walk in. Go for wool, soft and a light feeling is what you deserve for your head.

Don’t be afraid to be colorful, a pop of hue should lighten your mood with such heavy winds. Goorin Bros offer a beautifully crafted American made Ruby Clark @ $170 in 3 colors.

2. Vans

You could be kickin’ it, romping around or travelling to the other side of the city but it’s a total fashion requirement that even if you don’t own a board, you own a pair of nice suede board kicks.
