There really isn’t anything like fall in a big city.

The coffee is hotter, the cocktails braver, the music more heartfelt—your wardrobe should reflect all of this.

Things look a little different this year, yes, but leaves still fall, the watch on your wrist still ticks, and the November sun still sets each day. It’s proven adversity is the ingredient to success, whether you’re a musician composing the next tune, a painter expressing emotion through color, a worker at a farmers market selling fresh produce, a teacher, a chef, a first responder, a nurse or a doctor, a delivery driver, a post office employee, a dog walker, a baker, whatever you do—your role is vital, it completes the diversity of a cities beauty. We trust this catalog will have you feeling the warmth you deserve this fall.

The Alfa Military shirt first surfaced on Buck Mason six years ago, as one of their first outerwear pieces. After some time in the archives, it’s come out of retirement. Which is a testament to the brand’s motto — basics that stand the test of time. A truly timeless member of our country’s style culture, it’s a reproduction of a US Army OG-107 Jacket, cut from durable cotton sateen and milled exclusively for Buck mason at a centuries-old Japanese mill. Like many of Buck’s products, they are contemporary yet relaxed. Casual yet still hold a firm slice of elegance. Buck Mason is a brand for gentlemen with a sense of grit and an eye for style. As the days are now shorter, sport this lightweight jacket with confidence as you trek through the streets of your downtown, becoming part of its bold cityscape.
Bitflex Chelsea Exclusive
Chelsea Boots have been rocked by the best-of-the-best for generations. The Boss, Newman, Bob Dylan, you name it. They slip on almost too easy, and become the signature to any outfit, ready to take the streets for a memorable night on the glowing town. Bitflex is handmade in Italy and created with an eco-friendly process. The premium leather is aged for 30 days, then treated with oak bark, and softened with all-natural ingredients. Comfort is key, and the 100% natural crepe rubber soles are like butter for your dogs, ready to put in some serious miles. We’d tell you to lace ‘em up and get out there, but we don’t have to, just slide ‘em on and glide.
Leather pairs with fall the same way whip cream goes on a slice of pumpkin pie, it’s a match made in heaven. Bexar Goods doesn’t mess around when it comes to crafting products that will truly last a lifetime, and The Porter Satchel just might be one the most unique and well-tailored bags we have ever discovered. Founder Guy Rubio based the design on rugged adventures into limestone caves, and then even tested it in all kinds of elements including Iceland terrain. The satchel is adventure-ready for really anything on the road ahead, protecting the valuables within. With a shoulder strap, one main pocket, it can be worn as a backpack or a side bag. It’s basically Mandalorian armor for your electric devices, notepads, clothes, EDC, or whatever you chose to stash. Cruising through a leave painted street with The Porter Satchel is one damn fine way to get from point A to B.

Fingerless Knit Gloves
There is no argument that fingerless gloves look about as cool on your hand as Sean Connery looked in Dr. No. Okay, maybe not that cool, but we had to find a way to show some love to the late great. Fingerless gloves are a choice style piece, but if you’re living in an area that hits freezing temps, there is only a short window in which you can wear them. That window is open now and closes when the winter blows in. While we urge you to stay off your phone when hitting the concrete under downtown city lights, Apple Maps is sometimes the compass that leads our journey, and these stylish gloves make it simple to navigate and walk. With Filson printed on the wrist, you can purchase these knowing they are made with the highest quality.
