Noteworthy (Trepanier): Gingham shirts and silk knit ties are not strictly summer fare. Try them in fall tones while pairing them with colder weather fabrics like Fair Isle and tweed to create a texture-rich, autumn-appropriate look.
Noteworthy (Castleberry): Tasseled loafer, engine turn buckle, alligator belt, no-break cuffed trouser. What allows the various textures, patterns, and weaves to work is the monochromatic color palette.
