Fall Style Guide
Just a couple months ago, gentlemen were literally emptying their wallets desperately trying to figure out what summer styles would work for them. As they searched endlessly for the perfect style, an overwhelming number of options left many lost and disoriented.
Now gentlemen are once again scrambling to figure what fall style will work best for them; however this time, we, as A Couple of Bros, will guide them seamlessly to a dapper and neat style.
Contrary to popular belief, crafting a style that will impress nearly anyone is, in fact, all about simplicity. Simplicity is about taking the understated clothes and wearing them with confidence. Simplicity is about using what most would consider minimal to your advantage. Simplicity is not boring nor predictable, rather masculine and poised. Simple is what people will remember.
1. 1/4 Zip Ups
Possibly the most essential piece of clothing to any man’s fall wardrobe for one reason: Versatility. Whether you are meeting your girlfriends parents for the first time, going out for dinner with a bunch of buddies, going to class or playing golf the 1/4 jersey zip is acceptable.

2. Chino Urban Slim Pants
Chinos have become increasingly popular over the last few years and for good reason. In all honesty, they are as stylish as most business casual pants but as comfortable as the sweats you wear around the house. This is a quick and effortless wardrobe change you can make to not only impress yourself, but also your professional and social peers. To Purchase the J. Crew Urban Slim Fit Chinos pictured below, click here.
3. Boat Shoes
This is not to say that boat shoes are not an all year round type of shoe, but it is more to say that the color of your boat shoe is very seasonal. The pastel colors typically seen during the spring and summer months are simply just not acceptable in the fall and winter months. You are going to want to try to stick to the richer, rustic color pallet and retire your bright yellow and blue boater shoes for the year.

4. Leather Accessories
Most people make the mistake of trying to do too much with their accessories. You want them to help you, not hurt you. In my personal experience, an accessory has the ability to break your outfit, but cannot make your outfit. When shopping for accessories, try to stick to dark neutral colors. To purchase the J.
