There can be nothing better for that first chill of fall, than a vest.  They can range from sporty to functional, and you can find the right one for any outfit.  Throw them over a sweater with sport shirt, or pair one with hoodie, or a sport coat.  From country gent to city nomad, for this fall, get well vested.  Here are some of our favorites-

L.L. Bean – This zip-front, fleece-lined, wool plaid vest is a great layering piece on cold days. Throw it over your denim jacket, or pair the plaid with a striped oxford for warmer weather.  Football weekends !

Lexington Clothing – Combine quilted down and leather, and you have this light-weight vest that can make a sweater, that much better.  With the two pockets with snap closures, and a cell phone pocket, you don’t even need to haul a briefcase or man bag.

Slate & Stone –  We are all about a hooded vest  This pairing of hounds tooth wool, in grey and black, along with down-quilted in navy, makes this great for the city, or a day up in the mountains.

Burkman Bros. – This vest has a quilted camo printed poplin exterior with a striped twill interior. With it’s zip front closure, this vest can go anywhere.

Orvis  – Right on the olive trend for fall, this multi-tweed vest adds a layer of warmth and style. With it’s six exterior pockets and one interior pocket, perhaps useful for beers and whiskey for game day.

Filson – The Mackinaw wool plaid vest is great under a jacket or just over a shirt.  Perhaps with your favorite pair of chinos and a denim jacket.  This five pocket vest, just might be your new favorite this, or any, fall.

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.
