Fall isn’t actually, like, officially here yet. But it’s almost here. And what a fall it’s shaping up to be! If you’re not sure how in the hell you’re supposed be dressing right now, you’re not alone. The general weather-related struggles I always associate with this time of year have only been compounded by the monotony of our largely homebound realities and the difficulties they’ve engendered when it comes to getting dressed. Put simply: Why should you wear anything but sweatpants this autumn? Honestly, I’m not sure I’ve got a good answer. But if it’s any help, a whole bunch of designers do and we’re spotlighting 18 of ’em this week. (Well, uh, maybe 17 actually, not including the pair of—yes—very good sweatpants we had to list below out of sheer professional duty.)
If the various brainchildren of these talented guys and gals can’t convince you to switch it up this fall then you, my friend, might indeed be a lost cause. But you’re not a lost cause, right? Right.
Royal Crest Bucket Cap
Don’t get it twisted: Hats are very much a year-round essential and this week there’s bevy of real good options to choose from. A bright blue bucket? Say less, king.
L.A. Studio Hat
A downtown L.A. scenester staple you don’t need to be from the West Coast to appreciate? Hell yes.
Gordon Modern Hat
Fall-ready tartan? Don’t mind if I do.
French Terry Sweatpant
It’s still the sweatpant’s world, and we’re all living in it (and them).
Brian Kenny Top
A delightfully doodly long-sleeve top of Onitsuka Tiger’s collaboration with Brian Kenny, the NYC-based artist.
Heritage Chore Coat
If I had a backlog of bangers as deep as Lee does I’d dig into ’em to pull out some old-school styles, too.

Double the stitching, double the fun!

Desperately cling to these last few days of summer with everything you have. (Or, like, cop this shirt.)

Blundstone dropped a limited-edition take on its classic Chelsea boot in honor of the style’s 150th anniversary, and needless to say it slaps.
Fair Isle Wool-Blend Sweater Vest
Shoot it into my motherfucking veins.

Lightweight, waterproof, and damn-near indestructible. In other words, everything you should look for in a coat this fall.
Checked Embroidered Shirt
Bodeee on my bodyyy, please!
Prada Superstar 450 Leather Sneakers
Prada’s partnership with Adidas part two, this time featuring a Superstar done up in premium leather and stamped with that coveted Made in Italy imprimatur.

Collapsible-Heel Leather Penny Loafers
Loewe continues to craft the ideal footwear for this *moment*.
Basketweave Work Jacket
A work jacket (jackets: no longer just for the outdoors!) you can—and should—wear while you WFH.
KITH X CALVIN KLEIN
Sure, the historic tie-up between the two brands technically drops on Saturday, but trust me: You’ll want to be properly prepared well beforehand.
