Fall Colors

We’re heading into deep fall—and here’s your refresher course on layering.

This snap comes from the recently released fall ’12 lookbook of Alexandre Mattiussi’s AMI line (you’ll recognize his houndstooth DB as a Fall Must Have) and is the spitting image of what you should be thinking for fall: layers, chunky knits and a shot of dark, rich color. (Though you might want to tuck in that shirt.) The entire lookbook is a good place to start if you need a reminder of how fall looks outside of a suit, so we pulled some of our favorite looks.

You Have 24 Hours to Buy This Shirt

Over the weekend, Context unveiled a pretty spectacular three-day sale. The only bad news is, it finishes up at the end of today, but if you’re sure of your size, there’s plenty here worth picking up.

Our favorite so far is this Dunderdon army shirt (a shacket candidate if we ever saw one), but there are also a few synthetic winter coats, a houndstooth tie, a nautical sweater and one of the cooler shirts we’ve seen all year.

And judging by the winds outside, it got here just in time.

As the economists say, it’s a recession when your neighbor loses his favorite vintage store and a depression when you lose yours. Well, we’ve got some bad news for you…

Houndstooth Vintage, one of Brooklyn’s best men’s vintage shops and our own personal Halloween costumer of choice, has closed up shop as of last week. You’ll still be able to get your hands on their goods by appointment through their blog—at the moment, they’re pushing a batch of vintage belts—but the days of stopping by in search of a vintage tux are over. Fare thee well…
