So the weather has finally decided to adhere to the current season and cool down a bit, making it the perfect time to wear some of the new digs I picked up from The Idle Man. If you don’ t know about The Idle Man, today is your lucky day. The Idle Man, a menswear based retailer, catering to the style conscious man. Hosing brands such as Herschel, Dr. Martens and Laboratory Perfumes, The Idle Man is a go-to destination for men. Alongside the online shop, The Idle Man Manual is a blog dedication to offering style advice as well as stories and guides about music, grooming and lifestyle.

As part of their fall collection, I grabbed this hoodie and this cotton mac jacket. Black and Tan: great as a drink, great as an outfit. The rule of having to choose between black OR brown just isn’t a thing. All neutrals pair with everything — including other neutrals. A black hoodie is pretty much a staple during fall and I love the unique texture of this one. It gives just the right amount of warmth for these cooler fall days, but also layers perfectly with the classic styling of a trench. I also love the versatility of a classic black and white striped tee. This one is easily layered but also perfect worn all on its own.

I have picked out my favorites and what I bought from their Fall Collection below, but be sure to check out the full Fall Lookbook here.

What Does Your Denim Say About You?

The weather has *sort of* finally cooled down enough for me to wear some of the things I picked up at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Since this Billy Reid jacket (which was one of my favorites from the sale) has just been hanging in my closet since July, I was definitely ready to pull it out at the slightest fall chill. I love the leather collar detailing and the subtle quilting that layers great over this textured henley.

These are also a new pair of selvedge denim that still have the super clean rigid look. With each wear, these jeans get a little bit softer and little bit more worn in. I actually think this “breaking in” is one of the most interesting qualities for selvedge denim because no pair ever looks the same. Each pair of jeans carry a history of the person that wore them with unique wear and tear. How interesting to look back in a year or so to see the difference from this clean raw denim to what will most certainly show signs of wear. Plus, raw denim ends up being the absolute most comfortable because it perfectly forms to your body and fits better every time you put them on.

 If you never have, try out a pair of raw selvedge denim.  It does take a little bit of time to go from raw to super comfortable and broken in, but that in between is all part of the story.
