Looking Forward to: Fall

Hell yes. Fall is basically here. It’s probably already fallen...

Hell yes. Fall is basically here. It’s probably already fallen in some other places across the country, but here in San Diego, it’s still a billion degrees and this heat wave is showing only slight signs of dissipating. Still, there’s something to be said of Fall looks and donning them when the proverbial weather gets cooler here. With that said, here’s a few items I am stoked on this Fall. Granted, putting this entire outfit together will set you back a great deal $$-wise, but pick and choosing a few pieces never hurt anyone right? Treat yourself to some new gear this Autumn with the Momentum’s little Fall guide to what’s good.

Aloha Sunday Mano Waxed Canvas Bomber Jacket

Aloha Sunday Mano Waxed Canvas Bomber Jacket

It’s not quite time for a peacoat or heavy wool. And it’s just cool enough that you need something a tad heavier than a wind jacket. Enter the Aloha Sunday waxed canvas bomber jacket. We all have a bomber jacket, or had one at some point, and probably don’t wear it anymore. Maybe you were Top Gun for Halloween. (Just the entire movie… you costume. “I am Top Gun. Wanna make out?”) Update with this one. Warmth & coolness. Dig? Dig. Aloha Sunday Mano Waxed Canvas Bomber Jacket – $266

Muttonhead JOHNNY CREW // HEATHER GREY

Muttonhead JOHNNY CREW

Fall is a good time for basics (as is any time really.) Coming out of Summer, especially here in Southern California, and wearing floral for the better part of the last 4-5 months, it’s nice to finally relax on all that and slip into some coziness. And nothing says cozy and “Falls Out Shawls Out” quite like a heather gray crew neck sweatshirt. And this one will do quite nicely. Muttonhead – $126

Topo Designs MOUNTAIN SHIRT - CHAMBRAY

Topo Designs MOUNTAIN SHIRT

There’s not much more awesome than a chambray shirt. And in the Fall, there’s nothing as gorgeous as the Rocky Mountains what with the Aspen changing colors, the temps goin down, and the smell of fires from chimneys everywhere fills the air. No one knows this feeling better (or captures it via product) than Topo Designs. Especially via the Mountain Shirt – $129

SHOOTS! Kook T Shirt

SHOOTS! Kook T Shirt

When the water gets cool, the coastlines empty and the weekend warriors lighten up on the surf. The rippers will still be out there, sure, but the inlanders will opt for coffee shops and cable when the water temps go down. The dudes at Aloha Sunday are the exception of course. But far be it from them to jokingly call everyone out via t-shirt. Perfect for a base layer this Fall in SD, whether lounging around the casa or throwing a light jacket over it, show your kook colors by pretending you’re not a kook. Aloha Sunday – SHOOTS! T-Shirt – $32

Rogue Territory Stanton Slub

Rogue Territory Stanton Slub

I remember first moving to LA and working for a hot minute at a pretty crappy denim shop. I was hooked up with a set of 16oz. selvedges to break in and rep around town. That shit was hot, man, especially is September in Los Angeles. The smell…. Whoa. Anyway, if you’re not in Southern California and wanna keep a little warm, I highly recommend the 16oz weight. Just go with a better brand like Rogue Territory… Not some brand that used to make jeans for college woo-girls. Rogue Territory Stanton Slub – $245

Edison Manufacturing Freemont Belt

Edison Manufacturing Freemont Belt

“The belt holds the jeans up, but the belt loops holds the belt up. Who’s the real hero here?” Gotta keep those denims up. You’re not in 8th grade anymore, sk8R boi. Check out the locals at Edison Manufacturing. They got ya covered. Edison Manufacturing Freemont Belt – $84

Danner Stumptown Mt. Tabor

Danner Stumptown Mt. Tabor

Who needs new shoes? We all need new shoes. Sure there’s a closet full of last year’s shoes. But what’s the harm in adding some new shoes to the collection? Just get rid of some of those sets you haven’t worn in like 5 months. You won’t miss them. Sure Buffalo Exchange will low-ball you and you will curse their stupid name, but at least it’ll make room for a set of Danner Mt. Tabors and keep you lookin good this Fall. Danner Mt. Tabor (Stumptown Collection) – $250

Wonderland Sunglasses: STATELINE LEATHER

Wonderland Sunglasses: STATELINE LEATHER

Fall can still be sunny. It’s that perfect golden light breaking through the changing colors of the leaves from angled branches on the trees that can blind you the most. I’m a fan lately of the Wonderland brand. Good shapes, quality feel, rad branding. These will look good this Fall. Wonderland Stateline Leather Sunglasses – $260

LOCK STOCK & BARREL PUCKA GROOMING CREME

LOCK STOCK & BARREL PUCKA GROOMING CREME

It’s Fall. Let hair hair in on the fun. It’s not cool enough for a beanie, and you aren;t gonna wear a hat everywhere. So get a good chop and keep it cleaned up and in place with a good pomade/creme/fiber/whatever. I’ve used the Lock Stock & Barrel grooming creme many times (because my friends at the Motley are rad and hooked me up), and I can attest to it. It’s a helluva lot cheaper than the rest of comparable products out there, and it works. It works. And that’s the most important thing. Lock Stock & Barrel Pucka Grooming Creme – $22

Campfire Candle

Campfire Candle

Finally, when you’re ready to call it a day and hang out indoors when the sun goes down, light up a candle to remind you of those summer nights around the campfire. Pour a little whiskey, throw on some Sam Cooke, pet your dog, and chill. To help you get there, snag one of these Campfire Candles. It’s an easy $20 investment that will last you all season, and leave your home smelling better. Campfire Candle – $20
