While a leather jacket can look good almost anytime of the year, brown leather shines like no other when surrounded by November’s colorful foliage in New York’s Central Park. I styled my favorite vintage leather jacket with other shades of brown. A classic pair of tan J.Crew cotton-twill chinos contrast the dark brown jacket in a smart manner, and fall styling calls for a pair of rugged boots. This simple pair from Grenson adds a stylish body to the classic derby boot with a scotch grain leather.
To break the brown hues, and standout one it’s own, a rich burgundy crew neck sweater is a wardrobe essential (as the color can look good year-round), and to top off the look on a sunny day, can’t go wrong with Ray-Ban aviators.
Get The Look:
Jacket: Vintage (similar from Belstaff)
Sweater: Banana Republic Blended Sweater (similar from J.Crew)
Pants: J.Crew Cotton-Twill Chinos

Accessories that can work anywhere in the world are essential for a traveler to showcase a global style, especially for the weekend when you are packing light and need an easy transition back to your day-to-day routine. Once you’ve picked your travel companion—for this trip to Cartagena, Coach’s Bleecker Legacy Weekend Tote ($658) for its modern heritage design and spacious body—its time to pack the necessities for your journey. So what do you bring in the bag?
If you’re only going to be traveling for a short time, no need to bring that laptop of yours obviously, but if you need to get some sort of work done or you need to catch up on your shows while in transit, a tablet is the way to go. However for any international trip, the first thing you need before that is to style up your passport:
Passport Cover – Men In Cities
From Yuvi Alpert’s Men In Cities (an edited, limited collection of accessories each month with each item costing the same price), this beige Global Nomad Passport Cover ($40) has a vintage inspired charm to it. With two large pockets on each inside flap—one for a passport end and the other for your ticket—and a smaller pocket on the right flap (not pictured).
