It’s that time of year again, where everyone is back from a vacation, the sun shines a little less bright, the breeze kicks in and you’re back to work with a fresh outlook on life. September, truly the January of the year, the month has a lit to prepare for.

To be at the best of your sartorial self, check out this list of essentials that matter to me, and I think every man should have in her arsenal for the first month of fall.

  1. Martin Margiela White Sneakers:
    Perhaps an evergreen type of sneaker to have in your closet, the all-white sneaker is perhaps the best way to leave you looking high fashion while making you look more casual.
  2. Burberry Prorsum tote bag:
    A black tote so seamlessly transitions from day to night. It is perfect to carry your laptop, tablet and documents for work and alternatively doubles as an overnight bag. Opt for this Burberry Prorsum tote, which you can carry in your hands or sling it across your body via the leather strap.
  3. Maison Kitsunè Parisien sweater:
    A simple lightweight navy sweater matches well with trousers or jeans of most colours and, when sported with a shirt underneath, gives a relaxed collegiate look. This Maison Kitsunè sweater is a nice pick for a good look.
  4. Prada Travel Wallet: September gets busy – travel wise – for me, and I have to keep flying from Dubai to Mumbai every so often. A travel wallet goes a long way in with keeping all your documents, IDs, credit cards and quick cash in a consolidated place.
  5. Marc by Marc Jacobs Neoprene Bomber: A lightweight bomber jacket has to be the best pick from this list. In Dubai, the weather still gets pretty high, and wearing layers can b daunting, so put on a plain white tee and sport a lightweight bomber to complete the look.
  6. Tom Ford Black Slip-ons: The month gets pretty busy with work events and catch up friends and a good way to always be dressed ready for it, is to dress well. With black slip-ons you could jump from a day at work, to an event to dinner and drinks with friends, and still keep sharp throughout.
