Sharp-dressed men

Colours, layers and textures. Kind of like what's going to be happening soon to the leaves and trees around here. Seems weird to be talking about autumn in July, but this is exactly when stores are transitioning out of the lighter, brighter clothes of summer and stocking their racks and shelves with the comforts of fall.

Jonathan Jacob, sales representative, tailor and menswear buyer at Danali Men's and Women's Clothing, said the keys for this fall are "deep tones and beautiful textures."

If you're looking for a new piece for your fall wardrobe, we've got just the ticket.

It starts with a sharp-looking knit blazer that reads somewhere between structured sport coat and loose, floppy cardigan. It's a great way to elevate your look but without the stuffiness of a suit or suit jacket.

Over a pair of currant-coloured (reddish) chinos (or for a more conservative look, a charcoal pant) and paired with a red gingham-check sport shirt, it makes the reds and browns of fall come alive. The knit blazer not only adds texture to the ensemble, but adds a layer of warmth for those cool nights ahead.

The set is paired with John Varvatos coated canvas and leather oxford shoes, which add a classy yet slightly industrial look to the combination. These shoes over time take on their own patina as the dark colouring of the canvas inserts start to fade, but come right back to showroom shine with a quick bit of shoe polish.

Jacob said to create your own style, forget rules.

"I feel like rules are for people with no imagination," he said. "If it's pleasing to the eye, it's probably right."
