Plaid: It’s back. Every fall. But, this fall it’s like really in style. It’s not just on flannels this season and the fashion gods are giving you the freedom to break away from the tiny checks on dress shirts. For a distinguished and stylish look, pair this blue structured plaid dress shirt under a charcoal suit. Dress shirts are buy one, get one 50 percent off at Express right now.
Have a say: How awesome is this T-shirt for a guy’s night out? It says: “Epic Night in Progress.” If you say, it will become true, right? Here’s another good one that says “Raising the Bar Tab.” Just don’t wear it to church on Sunday morning. We’re seeing guys T-shirts draw inspiration from Internet memes — but there’s a definitely a difference between a great shirt making a funny and the offensive ones you’ll find at toursity T-shirt shops.
Bow ties: Take a break from ties and go old school with a bow tie. All eyes will be on you. They’re classic. They’re charming. And, they’re a bit unexpected — but definitely in style this fall. For the fashion-forward gent, venture from the pure silk rendition and try out a more rugged chambray bowtie.
Bomber jackets: The fall collection of jackets at Express has so many great options. This fall, outerwear draws inspiration from the schoolyard but with more sophisticated fabrics like wool. Our favorite from Express is this wool-blend bomber jacket in a charcoal color.
Glen plaid: We mentioned earlier that plaid has made a bold entrance this fall. But, admittedly, the trend is tricky to pull off on a suit — especially if you work in a more conservative office. That’s why we’re loving the more subtle version of Glen plaid that is a great pattern for suits. The photographer suit set from Express is tops.
