26 Essentials to Get the Fall Feels in Full Swing

Playoff baseball, changing leaves, and crisp morning air—autumn is a big mood, and we’re leaning in with some seasonal picks for the home and wardrobe.

Published by

Every year after Labor Day, I find myself pumping the brakes, reluctant to say goodbye to long sunny days at the beach or by the lake (seasonal depression is real, folks). But now with the holidays coming fast into focus, I’m tapping the brakes again, wanting to savor the drama of fall: The light hits different, leaves take on a fiery display of oranges and reds, and a snifter of brown liquor is the perfect way to beat the chill and watch it all go down.

So whether you’re rooting for the home team from the comfort of your living room or headed outdoors for that last camping trip before old man winter comes knocking, embrace the season with some of our latest favorites.

Pendleton Eco-Wise Wool Plaid/Stripe Blanket

Machine-washable blankets in colorfast wool won't shrink, fade or pill. Made with naturally renewable wool, they also pass strict standards of sustainability, leaving the smallest possible impact on our earth. In neutral plaids, they're easy to match in any room. Whipstitched edges.

Pendleton Men's Plaid Board Shirt

An essential among California surfers in the '60s, and still our bestselling shirt today. Made from premium, machine-washable wool sourced from local ranchers in Umatilla County, Oregon near our Pendleton mill. Rugged, midweight fabric is water, odor and stain-resistant. Square bottom, two bias-cut pockets. Tall fits men 6' and up.

Shop

Lunya Restore Double Faced Pullover

Crafted from our signature-soft, reenergizing Restore Pima fabric—and now in an elevated, two-toned construction—our new Restore Double Faced Pullover complements your most leisurely moments with its cozy-comfy relaxed-yet-structured (but never stiff) silhouette. Designed with ribbed trim, a magnetic snap front closure, fully functional kangaroo pocket, and spacious hood.

Shop

Flint and Tinder Flannel-Lined Waxed Trucker Jacket

An icon of style, now flannel-lined for warmth and comfort. Tough, timeless, and made in the USA, this top-seller is constructed with a waxed and weather-resistant Martexin 7 oz. sailcloth, which like selvage denim or finely tanned leather, will only get better with age. Every time you hoist a beer, tie your boots, or ride your bike, your movements will lighten the color of the waxed fabric in the creases and bends to create your own unique wear patterns. It's truly a thing of beauty, and why every guy needs a Waxed Trucker in their closet. And unlike most of the other Waxed Truckers on the market, this jacket is soft out of the box, and can even be worn only with a tee underneath since both the body and sleeves are fully lined with soft blanket lining that feels great on the skin. For the price, you simply can't beat the quality, construction, and versatility of this bad boy.

Greys The Outdoor Slipper Boot

Sliding into a pair of Greys slippers gives you the same satisfying feeling as a nice, steep pour of bourbon after a long day. A cozy wool blend keeps your feet nice and toasty, while the grippy rubber sole lets you take them beyond the bedroom—whether you’re venturing across the slippery kitchen floor or across the street to your local coffee shop. The shape is handsome enough to keep your neighbors from raising any eyebrows, while a thoughtful, stub-proof toe box keeps you from shouting expletives in public. Every pair is naturally moisture-wicking and odor-resistant, and comes with a leather pull-on tab to easily slip ‘em off (though we’re not sure why you’d ever want to).

Shop

Snow Peak Flexible Insulated Cardigan

This lightweight and versatile piece features Polartec Alpha insulation, which regulates excess heat, and Primeflex material with a durable stretch and a water-repellent finish. The cardigan has a V-neck opening, snap button closures, a left chest pocket, and two pockets at the waist.

Nemo Equipment Moonlander Foldable Camp Table

A versatile and lightweight folding table. Nemo’s design process is guided by a single statement: “Never bring anything to market that isn’t significantly better than what’s already available.” Simple on its face, but that’s the mantra that keeps their range of camping and outdoor goods fresh, innovative, and downright useful. They’re the kind of things that are packed with those little elements that make things better by degrees, like a built-in foot pump for a sleeping pad or a perfectly positioned piece of memory foam on a travel pillow—small details that add up to a better experience when you’re in the great outdoors. The Moonlander Foldable Camping Table has two heights, so you can use it as a parking spot for a couple wineglasses on a picnic blanket, or pop out the legs and set it up as the perfect little side table.

Sippin’ on the rocks.

Pop in a couple of batteries and turn them on with the included remote to cast a warm, white LED glow with lifelike flame movements across the room for hours and hours—you can even time them to turn themselves off. From tabletops to window sills to bathrooms (yes, bathrooms need mood lighting, too), we can see them casting a warm glow all throughout the house. The set of 3 candles have a 700-hour battery run time, while the set of 5 candles have a 300-hour run time, for plenty of cozy, warmly lit nights ahead. These would be especially welcome in homes with little ones and pets underfoot!

Warm but breathable, tough but comfortable, this is one hell-of-a jacket. Brands like Relwen are the reason we get excited about heritage gear. Each careful stitch is made with the goal of creating something useful, something that lasts, and something with classic style. That way, when you open your closet five, ten, twenty years from now, you'll have a lineup of reliable clothes that look damn good and are with you for the long haul. To live up to that tradition, Relwen makes pieces like the Windzip Jacket—which could be the slickest jacket they've ever made. It's warm, it's lightweight, and just downright cool. Call this guy up from the bullpen and he'll be your starter in no time.
