Autumn fashion for men

---By Josie Wu Translated by Sho Huang

While the sun loses its summer glare and autumn beckons, the seasonal subject of how to best present yourself through your clothing once again comes up. As the styles of fall and winter were already decided six months ago, it's actually just a matter of getting all the right pieces now.

A tough-yet-sexy military style is still leading the line-up this year. For example, Dolce & Gabbana is inspired by the glamorous, Napoleonic era, while Calvin Klein Jeans--influenced by solemn-looking military uniforms, Western cowboys and trendy metropolitan styles--has adopted bronze zippers, metal buttons and lots of pockets with covers to exude a heavy-duty, sturdy army feel.

In the meantime, DKNY's styles tend to be thick and plain, including black cotton jackets. However, a colorful scarf or tie can easily energize this ensemble. AlX Armani Exchange, part of the Armani group, is aiming at the youthful New York night life scene with classic-yet-modern styles like bleached coats, dark shirts and long skinny ties with tight, dark-blue tight jeans that are guaranteed to have a striking effect. In addition, a variety of black items in various fabrics will definitely style you up.

Nevertheless, for most busy businessmen, it's actually more practical to invest in suits. Carnival has come up with the "Building Business Travel Fashion Charm" theme and designed two series--classic "Graceful" and modern "Charm"--with velvet jackets that seem to go well with almost everything, or short jackets, leather suits, trench coats, cotton jackets , knitted shirts, sweaters and slacks--all there to help you look smart and sharp.

With all the choices available, we hope that you'll choose to dress in style while showing off your personality this season.
