Sustainable Fall Clothes for Men!

Days in the sun and nights in the rain – summer is over, simple and plain…

Fall is here, whether you’re ready or not. It’s time to pack up your shorts, tanks, and swim trunks, and break out the Autumn knit coats, flannel, and stylish pants. And, since this has been a year unlike any other, why not stock up on some new Fall gear – especially if it’s ALL sustainable and GOOD for the Earth. Sustainable Fall clothes for men shouldn’t be hard to find, so we did the dirty work and rounded up 12 essentials you NEED this Autumn!

Pichu Alpaca Wool Sweater
Tact and Stone

The seasons may be flipped south of the Equator, but Tact & Stone goes to the Peruvian Highlands to source and manufacture the perfect Fall sweater. Super soft and ultra-breathable, the Pichu Alpaca Wool Sweater is distinguished as one of the most sustainable & fair-trade pieces in the market for good reason.

Each sweater is hand-loomed in Peru, and the alpaca are raised and farmed humanely with the effort to enhance bio-diversity and regenerative farming within the local community.

It’s definitely a statement piece, but the Pichu Sweater has Fall functionality with moisture-wicking and temperature regulating properties. This one definitely needs to be in your Autumn wardrobe.

Cuba Libre Long Sleeve Shirt
Toad & Co

The Cuba Libre Long Sleeve Shirt by Toad & Co. is both customary in design and flawlessly modern in comfort – and utterly perfect for those crisp Fall days. The 99% organic cotton lies gently on the skin with easy breathability, keeping you comfortable at the time of year when it can be both beautiful and chilly at the same time.

This casual Cuba button-up is quintessential for any laidback lad looking to soak up some rays during the day and relax with a warm beverage at night.

Organic Corduroy Pant
United By Blue

The Organic Corduroy Pant is a durable, stretchable pair of slacks designed to move and endure everything that Fall has to offer.

United By Blue uses spandex and incorporates rivets around the front pockets that lend perfectly to moving and grooving about. The tapered ankle and modern fit make the Organic Corduroy fit in anywhere, from a pumpkin patch to an evening dinner reservation.

Groovy Pocket Tee

The Groovy Pocket Tee by Outerknown has the potential to be your new favorite Fall tee.

Sourced from 100% organic cotton, it not only feels extra comfy during those lovely Autumn days, it helps promote safe working conditions for farmers by eliminating dangerous synthetic toxins that are used in traditional cotton.

This tee is softer than butter, and has that sought after “lived-in” feel to it. The Groovy Tee is there for you as the days get shorter and the nights get longer.

Men’s Perennial Slim-Fit Jean

The again&again Men’s Slim-Fit Perennial Jean is softer, lighter, and more breathable than cotton, making it the ultimate Fall pant – and it’s designed never to be upcycled rather than thrown out.

Made from non-stretch, 100% lyocell denim, the fit stays great, so you can wear the jeans every day, again&again throughout the year (but we like them best in the Fall).

Organic Cotton Boxers
Organic Basics

Organic Basics’ Organic Cotton Boxers are what you want under your comfy Fall pants. A pair of drawers that are as ridiculously soft and easygoing as they are good for the environment? If you didn’t think that was possible, you need to check out these bad boys.

They’re as soft as the butter you put on fresh-baked rolls at Thanksgiving time.

Men’s Everywhere Pants

The Men’s Everywhere Pant by Joobwear is as good as it gets for Fall clothing. They look like pants, feel like pants- but move like activewear and are comfortable as all heck.

Perfect for wearing around the house, hiking around the lake, or wearing to meet your significant other’s parents.

These trousers are bound to become a favorite staple of your Autumn wardrobe.

The Day Pack

The Day Pack by Joobwear is a sturdy cross-functional backpack that can be used for everyday use or for outdoor activities such as hiking and fishing. This pack has plenty of room for extra clothes and gear, perfect for Fall months that are full of drastic temperatures changes.

Made with water-resistant nylon, this bag is designed to keep your belongings safe and dry in those sneaky Autumn rains.

Bernina Polarized Sunglasses

Who says sunglasses are only for summer? The Bernina Polarized Sunglasses by Sunski posses a unique, sleek coolness that was diligently designed to elevate your style even as the warm weather rides off into the sunset.

The uneven, hexagonal stainless steel frames paired with the subtle perforated sun shields give your eyes a break for any Fall outdoor adventure.

Plus, they’re made of an ultra sustainable material, Superlight, which is scrap plastic intercepted en route to a landfill. That’s cooler than a nice November night in northern Nevada.

Classic Cuff Beanie
Los Angeles Apparel

The Classic cuff beanie is an absolute necessity during the crisp mornings and chilly evenings of Fall. It’s made from 100% acrylic with thin, light, and warm 3M Thinsulate insulation technology, which helps trap body heat while also allowing moisture to escape. Perfection.

Pioneer Watch

The Pioneer is Nordgreen’s take on a Chronograph, celebrating the Danish tradition of Science for Humanity, which aims to create positive change for humankind, thus working towards a greener future. It’s also the perfect addition to compliment your Autumn clothes.

Nordgreen also holds their manufacturing and shipping to strictly sustainable practices: each Pioneer Watch is presented in Forest Stewardship Council approved packaging, and the felt inside of the boxes are formed using upcycled plastic bottles!

This watch not only adds affordable versatility to your Fall wardrobe, but its carbon-neutral nature is kind to our environment.

All Black Canvas

The signature sneaker of All Black Canvas should be the signature sneaker of Fall. The OCA Low is Crafted from high-end, raw materials with lightweight cushion technology, the perfectly-weighted rubber sole, and classic cap-toe design.

An all-one-color shoe provides the perfect Fall palette and an effortless Autumn look when you’re dressing yourself, no matter the occasion.
