How to Wear This Fall’s Best Men’s Clothes, From Cozy Sweaters to Billowing Outerwear

This fall, the great migration from summer’s lull back to daily life—what our French frères call la rentrée—feels more significant than usual. After all the lockdowns, quarantines and social-distancing, we’re getting back at it. And after all those months in sartorial purgatory, it’s time, finally, to get dressed again. The question, then, is: what to wear?

The collections arriving in stores now were conceived a year ago, in the thick of lockdown. Designers spent that time reflecting on what we’d want to sport once this moment arrived and answered with an array of clothing with ease and elegance in equal measure: softly structured suits, richly textured knits, billowing greatcoats.

These are garments that capture the comfort of what we’ve all been reaching for over the past year-and-change—the tactility of tweed, shearling and flannel is about as soothing as textiles get. But, they’re rendered with a sense of sophistication; swaddling as the materials may be, these clothes look unmistakably smart. The chunky sweaters, roomy trousers and swaggering outerwear add up to a fuss-free formula for getting dressed this fall—one that lets you spend less time thinking about what to wear and more time focusing on where you’re going.
