As summer ends it is tempting to cling to memories of warm days by the sea and cold beers in the garden. Packing away the flip-flops and sunglasses is a poignant moment.
Yet we all know that within a few weeks we will suddenly remember just how great the autumn season is after all. The leaves turn orange, the log burners are fired up again and everything gets cosy. So why not bypass the end of summer blues by getting ahead of the game. Kit out your wardrobe with some fantastic men's autumn fashion accessories that you will love wearing as the weather turns colder.
Our favourite men’s fashion accessories
To help you stay hot on trend during the colder months, we have selected a few men’s fashion accessories from some of our favourite brands. Featuring everything from sturdy boots to stylish beanies, here is your guide to accessorising in autumn 2019.
Conker Shoes Flying Boot
Nothing says autumn better than crunching through fallen leaves in leather boots. These eye-catching boots by Conker Shoes will keep your feet warm and dry, without being heavy or bulky. What’s more, Conker Shoes will repair or re-sole the shoes when needed. Not only is that an excellent service, it makes these shoes a truly sustainable fashion choice.
They offer a range of different sole options to fit your usage - heavy cleats for country walks or thinner soles for a more urban high street look.
These boots cost £210.
Organic Socks of Sweden Vikberg Socks
Why wait for your Christmas stocking to treat your feet to a pair of brand new socks? These colourful socks will keep your toes cosy right through to spring. Available in a range of bold and cosy prints, the socks are made of 80% organically sourced cotton.
You will find them on the Sanchos Dress website or in the Sanchos Exeter store at £12 a pair.
Colville Leather Black Leather Belt
Black is back this autumn. From Kurt Cobain grunge leather jackets to sleek black suits, black is making an appearance all round. So chose a black leather belt to complete your look. A staple item for your wardrobe for any formal occasion, this is an accessory you will be using for many years to come.
Our Oak Bark Tanned Leather belt is made from a 4.5 - 5.5 mm thick piece of oak bark bridle butt, so it is built to last. You have the option of brass or stainless steel for the buckle. Furthermore each belt is custom made to size so it will be a perfect fit and unique to you.
The Oak Bark Tanned Leather belt can be ordered for £89.
Nkuku Taliba Scarf
Monochrome is another emergent fashion trend this autumn. It seems that less is more when it comes to colour. This range of beautiful monochrome scarves by Nkuku provides the perfect understated palette for the season.
Made from a blend of wool and acrylic, these scarves are lighter than a full knitted winter scarf – perfect for layering up without overheating. Nkuku is a brand that aims to work with natural, recycled and reclaimed materials through sustainable methods of production.
The Taliba scarf is currently available at a reduced price of £39.95.
Komodo Eddie Merino Wool Hat
Made of 100% Merino wool, this cosy hat is designed by Komodo, another ethical fashion brand. They focus on organic or recycled materials and are working towards eradicating all single use plastic from their supply chain. Again following the monotone trend, this bobble hat will top your autumn wardrobe perfectly.
The Eddie hat is available online at £25.
Corkcicle Classic Canteen
Hot drinks get better than ever this time of year as the festive flavours start to appear. Disposable coffee cups have hit the headlines in recent years for their hugely negative impact on the environment. But while reusable cups are a great alternative, they aren’t always practical when you are on the go.
So Corkcicle have designed a multipurpose canteen, which come in an array of different colours and patterns. They can be stored in your bag on your way out and keep drinks piping hot for up to 12 hours. So all you need to worry about is not burning your mouth when you come to drink from it.
Sizes and prices vary, but you can source within the UK at The Renz Nest from £25.
Colville Leather Roll Top Backpack
One aspect of a British autumn that we can’t deny is the rainfall. It is important to have a reliable bag that will keep your belongings safe and dry.
The Colville Leather Roll Top Backpack is handcrafted using the finest quality Horween Derby leather, combined with Devon Oak Bark Tanned leather straps. The bag is stitched by hand using a strong, waxed, rot resistant, thread. It is built to last – whatever the weather.
The backpacks are made to order and cost £420.
Noctu Mayar Button Down Nightshirt
Sleepwear couture is en vogue this autumn. So be prepared for the longer nights and lazy evenings in front of the fire with this long sleeved button down nightshirt. Combining comfort with style, the shirt can be paired with harems or lounge pants for extra warmth.
All of Noctu’s nightwear is made with organic cotton, so you can sleep easy knowing your purchase is ethically sourced.
This piece is priced at £50.
