A few weeks ago, if you walked the floor of an office you were likely to find a lot of personal style.  That’s because the summer brings with it a relaxed dress code that fashionable folks love to take advantage of.

However, as fall approaches, there tends to be a retreat to the navy suit. We’re of the firm opinion that the cool temperatures don’t need to put an end to cool clothes. This season, we encourage you to put a spin on your office attire and reimagine your blazer.

Subbing your usual jacket for a zip-up bomber, cardigan or even an unstructured blazer can create a stylish and office-appropriate look that will set you apart from the crowd.

Check out these pieces we’ve picked out for some inspiration.

Just in case the pumpkins on every stoop and the giant inflatable witch on your neighbor’s front lawn haven’t alerted you, Halloween is this Friday.  

Some guys love going all out for the holiday with special effects makeup worthy of a cameo on The Walking Dead.

Then there’s the other guys.  Guys that dread having to pick out the least embarrassing option from the Halloween shop so they’re not ridiculed for being “too cool for school” when they show up to the costume party in regular clothes.

But what if you could beat the system and use your regular clothes as your costume?

That’s exactly what we’re covering on today’s post.  We’ve assembled three easy costume ideas that you can likely find in your closet.

As winter approaches, most men have one go-to response to combat the chill in the air - throwing on a coat.  And it’s totally understandable, from an early age our parents engrained it in us with a myriad of warnings to the effect of “put a coat on before you go out, you’re going to catch a cold”.

While a coat is definitely an effective means of staying warm, you may want to mix things up from time to time.  This is where layering comes in.

More layers mean more options.  It’s a chance to break down the seasonal boundaries that have been holding your wardrobe captive.  Want to wear your favorite summer tee-shirt with your fall cardigan and winter blazer?  Go for it!

There’s not too many rules to follow with layering – just make sure you start with your thinnest layer and work your way out to the heaviest.  Even David Beckham wouldn’t look suave with a henley pulled over his suit jacket.  Other than that, if you can put your arms all the way down to your sides and walk a few blocks outside without getting too hot or cold you’re in the clear.

Check out the look we put together below for some layering inspiration.

Last week we gave you three laundry tips to save your clothes.  One of those was to only dry-clean your suits once a year, and with good reason – all those chemicals damage the natural fibers in your suit condemning it to a premature retirement.

On the other hand, the natural fibers in your suit trap dust, dirt and lint which, if left unchecked, can also damage the fabric over time.  So what is a boy to do?

Your grandfather knew, and Jay-Z even tried to tell you over a decade ago - go and brush your shoulders off. 

Until recent times men didn’t set foot in dry-cleaners.  What they did was brush their suits with a clothing brush after every wear – and that’s exactly what you should be doing.

A clothing brush costs less than $20, and a quick brush after each wear can extend the life of your suit by years.  Here’s how to do it.  In long sweeping strokes, run the brush up the length of your suit to remove any dust trapped inside.  Then repeat the process with downward strokes to give the material a fresh smooth finish.

That’s it!  With frequent brushing and the occasional trip to the dry-cleaners you and your suit will enjoy a long and happy life together.

Watching the rain pour down our window here at Walk On Socks headquarters, it felt like the perfect day for a post on rain coats.

When we say raincoat, you’re probably pulling up a mental image of Humphrey Bogart.  That’s definitely one very stylish way to go, but we expanded the definition a bit to include a slew of styles that were unified by the fact they’re made of materials designed to keep you dry.

Whether you’re shopping for a bomber, trench or slicker, be sure to keep an eye on the materials.  You’ll want something that’s either water-resistant, such as waxed cotton and nylon (good), or waterproof, such as Gore-Tex (better).

Last but not least, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention our new walk on water design in this rain soaked post.  You can still pre-order them for a 20% discount in our shop!

Enjoy, and stay dry!
