We usually latch on to one killer item to get fall kicked off in proper style. This season the one we're sartorially salivating over is a classic motorcycle jacket with one important upgrade – it's made of supple suede in the perfect shade of slate grey instead of black leather.
The Circuit Suede Biker Jacket from Allsaints is priced at $650, which isn't bad considering this is the sort of investment piece you'll be wearing for years.
Slimmer fitting than the traditional model, Allsaints' version has just enough zippers, buttons and padded details to keep it cool without making you look like you just hopped off a crotch rocket.
Grey suede is so elegant you could easily wear this to dinner at a very nice restaurant over anything from a button-down to a cashmere sweater. Add a classic black knit tie and you'll probably be the best-dressed man in the room.
Just remember to send us a drink at the bar....
