After a prolonged Indian Summer (or Native-American Fall, your pick) it’s finally dropped below body temperature out there. If you haven’t already layered up, it’s time to get yourself bundled before pneumonia sets in. Now we know that in the windy change of seasons, leather jackets can appear attractive. Most of the offerings out there, however, are just mistakes waiting to happen (wait at least until the sartorial specter of *The Sopranos* recedes before investing).

Instead, pair these more rugged, woolen looks with your Fall favorites. California line Cassette offers up this matte-black number which splits the difference between blazer and hunting coat, Gilded Age has a red-plaid, twill-lined coat suitable for the forest or the streets and this charcoal coat by New York label Unis is corporate-friendly with a daring, expansive collar.
