One of the best things about early fall is getting to get back into preppy staples like navy blazers, plaid shirt, repp ties & penny loafers. We always like to mix up our prep staples (mixing stripes and checks, etc) but keep things classic when it comes to footwear. Enter our latest obsession, the Allred Penny Loafer by Johnston & Murphy – exclusively available at Nordstrom. Great with a festive sock as the temps drop, or sickles with jeans (as we are reaping) this shoe is a must have classic as Fall slowly approaches.

August is one of those tricky months in terms of getting dressed everyday. In the beginning of the month, it’s all about tank tops, floral print shirts & the hopes of lazy beach days. As August comes to a close however, we’d be lying if we said we wouldn’t snap if we saw one more ounce of seersucker or tropical prints roaming the city. Our minds are saying fall but our body temp is saying Summer. The key to transitional style & getting fall vibes during summer temps is all about color. With suiting, keep your tropical wool suit handy (in this case, the J.Crew ludlow) and go deeper with the shirt, shoes and belt (think maroon, dark grey, olive, navy, etc). Oh, and btw – feel free to stay sockless until the temps drop to festive sock level.

Screen Shot 2015-08-17 at 4.07.53 PM

We’re not going to lie….we really want to start shopping for Fall. Yes, yes…it’s still officially heat-wave status in NYC and we are fresh off a relaxing Summer vacation, but we have the bug and it’s pretty serious. To tide us (and you guys) over, we’ve pulled together a mini shopping edit of the pre-fall pieces were grabbing and lusting over. The good news? Most of these pieces are wear now and will get you some serious mileage into the crisp Autumn months. Keep in mind, this is just mini-edit (as we literally can’t hold ourselves back from getting SOMETHING new)…the full Fall menswear edit is coming soon.

While the Summer steams on, we are anxiously awaiting those early Fall days in New York City. While the stores are beginning to fully stock pre-fall threads, we just can’t start stocking up on layers while shedding them in the Summer heat. One staple to invest in NOW? A kick-ass Olive jean. Pair this bad boy with a crisp shirt and blazer to carry you through the last month of Summer and right into moto-jacket territory in the early Fall.

The New Yorker uniform = black on black….on black. We’ve taken the all black everything look right into Summer by incorporating a black linen short sleeved shirt and lightweight chinos into our look. Keep the look slick and tucked in and opt for a cool pair of leather espadrilles to channel your inner Mister Ripley.
