The winds are favorable for Raleigh, who continue to drift from their original position as crafters of the perfect denim towards a full collection of smart and casual basics. The core of Fall is robust and outerwear heavy, with detailed staples like a wool peacoat with leather collar strap or a brown and navy wax canvas jacket for the every day. Go-to slim fitting blazers with fine windowpane patterns, tweed textures and cropped vests provide some special-occasion play using both texture and proportion.

The oversized scarf tucked into the cropped vest on a color blocked palette of post-sunset hues—dressed up autumnal daywear.
The fits are nice and snug, but the lesson here is how to pop subdued color.
Dual panel jacket with just enough shine is easily a staple in your closet. Also of note, how the textured sweater cools the white pants down to fall friendly temperatures.
This one's all about the crisp lines and relaxed pairing of contrasting colors.
Perfectly textured and ready to take on the day.
