Pet Peeve: Spotting people jumping the gun with the holiday plaids in the middle of October. Can you please just let me relish in the Autumnal glory of my moto jacket and stetson hat for a sec? Thanksgiving is here and we’re officially giving the OK to the festive garb. We’re easing into things by mixing a classic black watch plaid tie with winter suiting staples like herringbone vests and wool sport coats. Keep things a bit more playful during the day by opting for a killer pair of retro high tops and making the switch to a brogue or loafer by night.

We couldn’t be one bit happier that the turtleneck is officially back in action. A piece we’ve been wearing since we were needing out in our penny loafers as a toddler, the turtleneck is one of the knitwear pieces you must have in your closet right now. You can never go wrong with classic black…cashmere, merino, blend; we’re fans of it all. Preston says pair it back to a slim black chino & herringbone blazer for a look that’s office to office-party-ready.

Chances are you already own a bomber jacket, and chances are you most likely do not own one crafted out of amazing tan suede (and found UNDER $200 buckaroos, yep). Well, we’re here to help. Preston recently took the must-have item of late fall (keeps the chill out while not looking too heavy) and styled it with layers of cream tees and long lined sweaters. Paired back to a fresh pair of 1970s Converse Chuck Taylors, this look is classic while giving you just enough Bieber/Kanye without looking like you’re on the hunt for a fake ID. (Speaking of 1970s…please pardon the porn-stashe…PK was clearly having a moment here)

We’re not exactly sure what is happening with us lately but we can not seem to get enough grey in our wardrobe. Overcoats, textured knits, denim jackets…the whole bit. Instead of letting all of our grey favorites sit alone in his closet, Preston decided to throw them all together for a monochromatic look of the moment. Try doing the same and pairing a grey monochromatic look from the waist up back to your favorite black skinny jeans and a tan suede high-top sneaker to keep things looking fresh.

The whole white jeans after Labor Day thing…to be honest, we’ve never really listened to that rule (and for good reason). Now that it’s officially cool to wear cream or white denim 365 days a year we’re really into pairing a broken-in, cream jean with traditional Fall pieces like a killer Fair Isle sweater vest & window pane wool blazer. Keep things simple and grounded back to a classic denim shirt. Preston says grab a killer pair of Autumnal toned vans or skate sneakers to keep this look fresh & cool

It’s time to grow some balls when it comes to your Fall suiting. This Fall, give your navy & charcoal buddies a break and venture into new territory by trying out tweeds, herringbones, and rich Autumnal shades (if it looks like a color that you’d find on the dinner table at Thanksgiving, we approve it). If you’re feeling especially daring and fall-like, go for a classic 3-piece number like Preston did here. Pair bak to preppy staples like repp ties, classic broadcloth shirting, tassel loafers, and a slim watch. ***UPDATE: This suit is now on KILLER sale, see pics/links below***
