Men don’t tend to be seasonal shoppers; they stick with what they love and consistently buy in bulk. Where’s the fun in that? Here’s a look at some Fall 2013 menswear pieces to help them step (gently) out of their comfort zone.
PLAY Comme des Garçons
CLOT x Nike Air Max 1 SP, HK $1,399 (about $180)
If there's one brand that fits into every man's lifestyle, it's Nike. This season, skip the run-of-the-mill and opt for something limited-edition like the CLOT x Nike Air Max 1 SP, which comes packaged in an exclusive box and launches September 7. Only catch: you'll have to be quick to catch them online or find a way to make it to Asia.
Hooded Sweater, $299
Finding a hoodie that doesn’t look sloppy is not any easy task. Luckily, it’s one that Maison Kitsuné has perfected.
WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie
O'Hare Tote, $895
This man bag is not only easy to coordinate with most wardrobes, it’s a great investment since it’s one of the brand’s classic silhouettes. It's also super convenient since it has a number of interior pockets, including ones for shoes (no surprise that some women buy this style too).
A classic cashmere V-neck will always be a reliable investment.
Scared of color or prints? Socks are an easy way to warm up to them.
Man jewelry isn’t easy to pull off, but Miansai's handmade, vintage-inspired pieces make it a less daunting endeavor.
Any man who can go against the grain and pull off textured white leather Converse in the fall is obviously a winner.
