Fall Fashion Picks From DL1961, Falconeri, and Sanctuary

With fall colors dropping and autumn pants and shirts popping, this seems like the perfect time to look at a few new seasonal threads that might help to keep the Manual man warm and in vogue as colder days descend.


This September, Los Angeles-based lifestyle brand Sanctuary launched its first foray into menswear. With over 20 years of fashion experience, Sanctuary aims to create an everyday men’s wardrobe that prioritizes design and function. 

In jumping into menswear, the brand not only leaned on its own experience, but partnered with 2253 Apparel to shape its first men’s drop. Garments include lightweight, relaxed logo tees, sweatshirts, a bomber jacket, denim and cotton button-ups, twill pants, and a classic straight jean. 

Camouflage and plaid prints go along with neutral colors that unfold throughout the lineup, providing the perfect opportunity to add some personality to your closet. Casual and comfortable, Sanctuary’s men’s line reflects current business culture while injecting style and character.

“In our ever changing society and times, the most powerful and enduring brands are built from the heart,” Sanctuary CEO Ken Polanco said. “With 2253 Apparel, we have found a void in the men’s marketplace for better fabrications, fit, and design at an affordable price point.”

You can find Sanctuary online at and at select retailers including Macy’s and Nordstrom. Prices range from $39 – $139.

Veja introduces all new V-90, a throwback Veja sneaker with a familiar aesthetic
Veja brings modern sustainability to '90s-era aesthetics, and we love it
V-90 sneakers on marble floor

In the ever-evolving landscape of men's luxury footwear, Veja has introduced their latest creation: the V-90 sneaker. This elegant amalgamation of throwback aesthetics and modern comfort is a unisex sneaker that caters to those who seek a harmonious blend of fashion, sustainability, and innovation.

Inspired by the design ethos of the '90s, the V-90 pays homage to an era marked by bold styles and expressive individuality. This throwback aesthetic, carefully interwoven with modern flair, makes the V-90 a versatile choice that seamlessly transitions from casual outings to more upscale settings.
Sourcing excellence and organic traced leather
At the heart of the V-90's allure is its commitment to ethical sourcing and the use of premium materials. Veja's approach to leather sourcing is exemplified by the inclusion of O.T. leather (Organic Traced leather) in the V-90 sneaker. Sourced exclusively from 100% certified organic farms in Uruguay, not only is it free from the harmful effects of pesticides and chemicals, but it also emerges as a testament to Veja's dedication to a greener and cleaner fashion industry.  O.T. leather goes through a mechanical beating process that makes it bendable. (The leather in the V-90 sneaker was also tanned in Brazil, and uses fewer dyes than conventional leather.)

Men's Chelsea boots are versatile and necessary, and these are the ones that will work with everything you already have in your collection, simply taking the place of some of your favorite shoes and extending the life of each.

A brief history of Chelsea boots
Chelsea boots get their name from the fashionable Chelsea district of London. Chelsea was the epicenter of fashion and music during the 1960s. It was here that fashion designers resurrected a style of ankle boot first worn by Queen Victoria in the 1840s. Shoemaker Joseph Sparks Hall adapted a traditional English riding boot for everyday use by the Queen. To make them more comfortable, he lowered the shaft to ankle height, and to make them easier to get on and off, he added elastic gussets on each side. The style became popular during the late 1800s but disappeared during WWI.
