Crash Course: Essential Fabrics for This Fall

When leaves start changing colors and the air begins feeling just a little too crisp, you know mother nature is sounding the alarm for men everywhere to break out their Fall wardrobes.

For many of us, the first instinct is to break out the jeans and maybe toss on a hoodie. Sure, it works. But, if you stop there you risk missing some of the most interesting, fun, and practical fabrics available to us.

This year, all you need to step up your style game are these 5 fabrics.



We’ve all heard of it and for good reason: it feels luxurious while also being stellar at insulating heat. Cashmere is made from the soft fleecy under layer of a goat’s coat and grows denser the colder it gets, acting as the goat’s protection from harsher climates. Cashmere fibers are finer and denser, making the texture very soft and never itchy. When cared for correctly, quality Cashmere will last for years to come. Toss on our Fulton Wool Cashmere Topcoat and you’ll feel as grand as you look sharp.



If you’re in need of a more everyday option, look no further than Merino. It’s a natural fiber grown year-round by Merino sheep and, as these sheep produce new fleece, Merino is also a renewable material. Nearly as fine while also being just a tad more breathable than Cashmere, Merino can easily be worn both on its own or as a layering piece. Its biggest advantage? Merino is naturally sweat wicking. So, whether you’re running around a pumpkin patch or just raking the leaves, toss on a Merino layer to keep yourself feeling warm and dry. Our Zegna Merino Wool Sweaters and Wool Shawl Collar Sweater do not mess around when it comes to versatility. 



Flannel is a soft, woven fabric, originally made from wool, but increasingly now from cotton as well. Typically patterned with plaid, flannel shirts are a subtle way of adding some colorful and textured flair to your Fall outfits. If Cashmere and Merino don’t speak to your inner hunter-cowboy-lumberjack, give our Everyday Flannels a try! It’ll become your wardrobe workhorse!



An incredible way to add rich texture to any outfit is by tossing on corduroy. It’s a ridged velvet fabric with distinct vertical lines that’s sturdy while being a softer option than denim. You’ll typically find corduroy in rich colors like navy, tans, browns, and greys, though lighter shades are also available. That poses a great opportunity to capitalize on a fabric that’s practically designed for the colder months. If you’re looking for something to change up your denim routine, consider adding a pair of our Kittredge Cords that you can dress up or down while staying comfortable.



Motorcyclists embrace it for a reason. Leather jackets are durable, comfortable, and get better with wear. Protection from scrapes aside, it’ll protect from the elements too as a natural water-resistant windbreak. But, what defines Leather is its eternal status as one of the most stylish materials in menswear. I mean, there must be a reason that real-life and fictional badasses that don leather jackets. Add yourself to that list with our Lambskin Leather Jacket. It’ll mold to you with wear while maintaining a supple texture that is warm yet comfortable in cooler weather.
