The first step in curating an effective fall wardrobe? Upgrading your socks with Ace & Everett — at least we think that’s a great place to start. In the way of small style details that help you stand out the right way, handsomely made, stylish socks couldn’t be more essential for today’s menswear fan. Yet, we prefer patterns with a little more restraint, refinement and subtle style — and that’s what Ace & Everett delivers on with its new fall collection.

Each pair, from The Thom (a modern herringbone pattern sock) to the striking Downtown Sock — fashioned in a  comfortable wool-cotton blend — draws inspiration this season from intertwined inspirations like New York City architecture and flooring. Yes, that’s right — flooring, and all the variety of inspiration that comes from NYC’s iconic skyline (and electric energy). Take the distinctive Viktor Sock, modeled after chevron flooring and available in colors ranging from a rich plum (wearable with dark denim and cognac wingtips) to a neutral, cool shade of black (able to slip into black captoe boots and grey flannel trousers).

Taking cues from what the brand calls “subtle variations” in the changing hues of marble and rare wood flooring, among other inspirations, led to socks that are soft and comfortable to the touch. They’re also durable, easy to wear and versatile enough to go with any kind of footwear you please. The Bennett, for instance, traces its roots to 70 Pine Street, a historic building that was a product of the skyscraper boom in 1930s New York.

It’s fitting that the Bennett could give you the confidence to take on boardroom meetings of your own — the subtle style of these socks would sit handsomely beneath a navy worsted wool suit and black wingtips this coming fall.

While Ace & Everett socks are a bit pricey, they’re no doubt worth the investment; certainly, they’re also worth stocking up on in a few colors to wear with your favorite fall style staples. With subtle variations in color, texture and fabric, each pair is unique and striking in a subtle way — the perfect socks to complement both tailored wear and casual, rugged outfits.

What is old money style? (Plus, how you can achieve the look)
Adopt Grandpa Core with Old Money Style
Man in newsboy cap and pleated trousers

There is a new trend hitting the style industry that a surprising amount of young people are driving. While the war between Gen Z and Baby Boomers rages on in social issue and economic discussions, a bridge is being built with their clothing. Grandpa core is beginning to land with the youngest group entering the work world as they adopt pleated pants, suspenders, double-breasted jackets, and loafers. While they may rage against the elites online, Gen Z is adopting the old money aesthetic in an attempt to take it for themselves and change the narrative.

Old money style screams class, sophistication, and luxury. While trends may be full of pieces that adhere to the newest looks that go in and out of style, the old-money look sticks to classic pieces that never age out. It invests in basic pieces that may seem boring and plain but combine together to elevate every ensemble to the likes of JFK, Jay Gatsby, and countless others who defined our style in the 20th Century.

These silver rings for men should be added to your accessories arsenal
Our top picks for silver rings for men

Silver rings for men have always felt like some kind of relic from rebellious '90s rock icons like Steven Tyler, or even early-aughts singers like Chad Kroeger (regardless of where you fall on the "Is Nickelback a good band?" question.) Either that or they usually appear as simple engagement rings under a quick Google search. But, silver rings for men have made a comeback, and they're now seen as the ultimate mark of "fashun." From simple, minimalist designs to intricately carved pieces, there is a silver ring to suit every man's taste these days, whether you just want to add a high-end vibe to your outfit or actually draw attention with an eyebrow-raising accessory.

In terms of affordability, silver rings for men perfectly bridge the gap between stainless steel and gold, meaning you can still look stylish without the ensuing buyer's remorse that usually comes with a hefty price tag. So, what if you don't want to be able to knock someone out with all the accessories that the frontman of Aerosmith sports, yet need something a little more noticeable than a simple silver ring with nothing on it? We've got you covered.

This Tag Heuer F1 watch collab might be our favorite nostalgic throwback yet
TAG Heuer partners with Kith for Formula 1 watch
TAG Heuer x Kith Formula 1 watches

In its heyday, the TAG Heuer Formula 1 collection was a sensation, with the '80s and '90s seeing commercial success with over 20 vibrant colors. Ronnie Fieg, founder of Kith, a streetwear brand known for items that take us back to the days when life just seemed simpler, is resurrecting these TAG Heuer watches, though they will cost more than the previous timepieces, with the originals selling for between $130 and $390.

With over 3 million sold, these colorful watches carry a deep sense of nostalgia for millennials, who to this day are a generation seemingly obsessed with the past, and that is why these new TAG Heuer watches will probably sell well once again. Plus, Max Verstappen recently wore one at the Miami Grand Prix, and with the 2-time World Champion's face on something, it always sells big.
