There is nothing like the nip of an autumn breeze on your collar to make you want to reach for the knitwear and head for hibernation. Sadly, most of us have to work or at least function in human society, rather than snuggling down in the nook of an oak tree with a red, fluffy-tailed nut lover. Sartorially the autumn provides us with quite a challenge: to cope with the drop in temperatures and totally unpredictable weather patterns while stepping out in ‘back-to-school’ smart clothes that express a good work ethic and a sharp mind. In these coming months, tailored casuals are your best friends.


Tailored casuals are a key trend for this fall. Brands like Duck and Cover have this look all sewn up. Fine knit, slim fit crew neck jumpers with some quirky detailing can take you easily from the office to the pub. Leather panels on sweaters are huge this season and add a luxe quality to this autumnal staple. The traditional puffa is more fitted and narrower this fall, giving you a more streamlined, smarter silhouette. The waxed jacket has been kicking around for a few years now but proves its got staying power with a new, biker-style, fitted shape, as seen in Duck and Cover’s fabulous Journalist Jacket, perfect for kicking up some leaves on an autumnal walk through the park.

Fall weather is unpredictable, but tailored casuals is a look you can depend on.
