Autumn Fashion

Autumn is a lovely time of year when the leaves change colour and fall to the ground and the air starts to feel more fresh and crisp but the wind gets more bitter and the weather starts to get colder. Fashion at this time of the year is all about layering and trying to keep warm whilst still looking stylish and dapper as always. Also it is a chance to utilise even more accessories than usual, like hats and gloves to help keep the chill off and stay cosy. 

Kitted and woolly fabrics, are always key in Autumn, they have a great textured look and are perfect for the increasingly cold weather. This seasons trending colours are natural earth tones like dark green, greys, navy and copper is a particularly popular colour at the moment. Duffel coats especially in a camel colour and embellished bomber jackets are back in fashion along with funnel neck tops and neckerchiefs.

Our favourite mens accessories for this month are knitted ties and lapel pins.

Knitted Ties 

Knitted ties could be a great addition to your wardrobe this season. We have a great selection of Knitted Ties here at, a huge variety of patterns and colours. It is almost guaranteed there will be a style to suit every outfit. They will enable you to look smart and professional whist adding some texture to your work outfit, but can also add a little something extra to your every day attire. They are increasing in popularity and are great for autumn because they're slightly warmer than a usual necktie but not as warm or bulky as a scarf. We stock Knitted Ties from Knightsbridge, DQT and Van Buck.

Our Knightsbridge Knitted Ties are handmade from 100% silk and come in a massive range of patterns including plain, diamond, vertical stripes, diagonal stripes, vertical stripes, dots, specks and blocks.

DQT knitted ties are a more affordable alternative made from polyester. Our collection includes plain, striped, thin stripe and stripes in lots of different colours.

We have striped and polka dot knitted ties by Van Buck which are made in England from 100% silk.

Wear our Green, Silver and Maroon Striped Silk Knitted Tie by Knightsbridge with a black blazer, white shirt and a pair of jeans, a camel colour duffel coat and some black gloves for a nice smart casual look.

Lapel Pins

A Lapel pin can spruce up the blank canvas of your suit, or blazer and combined with a great tie, bow tie or cravat and pocket square will make a first class outfit. They should complement the rest of your outfit but shouldn't match your tie or pocket square in colour or pattern. A Lapel pin should stand out as a statement accessory. We have several wonderful Lapel Pins for you to choose from.

This Gold Plated Leaf Lapel Pin automatically makes you think of Autumn. For a snazzy and formal look pair our lapel pin with a navy blue blazer, our Emerald Green Paisley Tie, a Paisley Emerald Green Pocket Square, beige trousers and a white shirt.

Brighten up these dull Autumn days by adding a Green Feather Lapel Pin to a charcoal grey suit. The green would really stand out. This outfit could also look great with our Navy Blue Pin Dot Tie, Pocket Square and Cufflinks Set.

Autumn Wedding Colours

As the weather gets colder and the darker nights draw in and the leaves start to fall from the trees most brides and grooms who opt to get married this time of year will be looking for inspiration for what colours are best for this time of year, we think darker autumnal shades are best to go with the surroundings of the autumnal landscape.

With that in mind, opt for bridesmaid’s dresses in different shades of purple, plum, orange and navy blue your groom and groomsmen will want to complement these colours by wearing darker suits which will in turn complement the bridal party and the season.

Be mindful of the colours you choose for your bridesmaids and make sure you compliment your grooms party with the colour scheme you decide to go with.


If you have decided to go for a beautiful autumnal orange colour scheme and bridesmaid’s dresses then why not have your groom and groomsmen wear a lovely pale charcoal grey suit to really make that orange colour pop. Add a tie, cravat, bow tie and pocket square in a similar orange colour which will contrast perfectly with the dark suit colour and bring your whole colour scheme together.
Purple and plum hues are huge wedding colours and if you opt for these shades finding a suit for your groomsmen should be relatively easy, black, grey and navy blue will compliment the colours perfectly and a purple or plum bow tie, tie or cravat would look great and really make your groom and groomsmen stand out and match the bridal party.


Tweed and velvet suits are fast becoming the go to if you really want to make your groomsmen stand out for the big day – the different materials are perfect for the autumn and winter seasons being traditionally thicker materials they will keep your grooms party nice and warm, tweed always makes a great autumn wedding look and most colours will go with a traditional tweed outfit. If you opt for velvet suits, try to stick with a colour that would compliment i.e. pair a black velvet suit with a purple or plum colour or try a matching velvet black bow tie.

We love this autumn wedding look consisting of a grey tweed jacket, casual blue denim shirt and our beautiful Floral Navy Blue Slim Tie finished off with our burnt orange pocket square and rustic buttonhole.

Black and plum is always a classic colour combination for weddings because it looks extremely elegant. Your groomsmen could look great in black suits with patent black shoes and our Plain Plum Self-Tie Bow Tie, PocketSquare and Cufflinks Set.

Pair Navy Blue suits with either navy blue or plum ties to go with your plum bridesmaid’s dresses and flowers for a warm autumn colour option.
