Hello my darlings…. it is almost Halloween and the night for tricks or treats is basically upon us. With that we are in the middle of Autumn. And you all know what this means. Colors are literally everywhere… trees… ground… streets. In addition to that the weather is simply marvelous. Warm in the day, but getting a bit chilly after half past 7. Warm jumpers are simply a necessity at this point of the year. But it is still not the time for the thick coats to come to play. Every Fall new trends emerge and have a huge impact on our wardrobe and sense of style.The Fall edition of GQ Style helps us, men, to see what is new in menswear autumn 2017. Today I would like to present a trend, which is near and dear to my heart: the Check.
As most of you would already know, I am a Burberry fanatic and with that comes a tremendous love for the British menswear. And to be honest… British fashion and Check come hand in hand. This year Burberry and Stella McCartney did not disappoint, for usual. If you were to ask me: Which Designer nails Autumn looks in terms of trends, craftsmanship, luxurious fabrics and impeccable taste level? There is no doubt what my answer would be: Burberry!
Menswear Autumn 2017 : the Check
My look for the day is British inspired, for sure. There is something about that trend, which transports me to London in the 80´s and 90´s. I have chosen a brown checked Burberry jumper as the main piece for the outfit. It is from their London line and is made out of a brushed wool and cashmere mix. In terms of pilling, let me reassure you… the Designer jumpers do not have that problem as the High Street pieces. It is soft and keeps you warm. Also you do not need a jacket with that jumper.
The scarf is from Bugatti. It is 100 % wool and is a bit scratchy. Due to the wool though it is an excellent source of warmth. And since I do not have sensitive skin… the scratchiness is not a problem for me. My jeans are simple skinny H&M jeans. Cotton and stretch. What else can a boy want?
I have chosen a pair of Zara double monk straps to complement the look. Since I needed a bit of a punk moment I have chosen these studded ones. Unfortunately they are from an older collection, but you can find similar ones. Studs are never out of trend. In addition I have chosen my Karl Lagerfeld leather handle bag, which I bought from TK-maxx. Sometimes there are really great bargains in there. Gucci Marmont belt and custom made rings make the whole look complete. Furthermore my Topman shades, custom made biker rings and Seiko 5 watch complete the whole look.
I hope you enjoyed my menswear autumn 2017 take and were able to draw a bit of an inspiration.
