Men’s style advice for mastering the changing season | Rodd & Gunn

Mastering the changing season

20th February 2020
As summer temperatures begin to cool, read our guide to transitioning men’s casual summer fashion into stylish autumn outfits.

As the mercury begins to drop after the sunny season, it’s time to shift the focus away from men’s summer styles and toward transitional season dressing. If summer dressing can sometimes be a challenge, dressing for autumn can be even more so. From temperatures that change on a dime to an entirely different colour and material palette to that of men’s summer clothing, the transitional season can be difficult to dress for.

With this in mind, we’ve put together our top clothing tips for men navigating the fluctuating temperatures of the first quarter of the year. No matter what type of Gunn Guy you are, read on for our guide to mastering men’s style this upcoming autumn.




Any man who loves the great outdoors knows that heading out for a jog or quick kick of the footy is an activity best enjoyed year-round. Our best fashion tip for men who like to maintain an athletic aesthetic in all seasons? Stay on the side of tradition.

Our Training Short is the perfect trans-seasonal men’s wardrobe staple for those who like their style to be more than a little sporty. Casual and comfortable, with a classic cut that’s ready for anything, the Training Short will keep you cool during warm, active days.

To transition into cooler nights, pair it with our Foresters Peak Sweat, an old-school rugby jersey that pays homage to the long outdoor heritage of Rodd & Gunn. This luxury sweatshirt is pre-washed for softness and comfort, and can be worn as a funnel neck or turned down for a more relaxed look.




Be the most stylish man at your urban stomping ground with an autumn outfit that balances style and practicality. Our aptly-named Motion Custom Fit Pant does just this, and is made from a stretchy, four-season Italian cotton fabric that moves with your body. Breathable, durable, and undeniably comfortable, this versatile pant is ideal for transitional seasons.

For a fashion-forward men’s autumn look, pair the Motion Pant with our Zingonia Sports Fit Shirt, a classic Oxford shirt in a subtle floral print from the Italian Mill Albini. Combining adjustable collar stays and rounded barrel cuffs with a flattering slim fit, it’s a welcome modern twist on a classic.




Multi-layered autumn dressing shouldn’t get in the way of your busy 9 to 5. Take on your workday in style by teaming our Motion Custom Fit Pant with our Motion Jacket. Crafted from a finely textured Italian twill, both the pants and jacket are lightweight and breathable, with a slight amount of stretch.

Better yet, the soft-tailored Motion jacket is unlined, meaning you can keep cool in the changing season, and features a single-breasted closure that suits relaxed and formal settings alike.




As summer fades into autumn, it’s only natural for your clothing choices to evolve from simple, casual summer outfits into a more sophisticated autumn men’s style. Take the transitional season as an opportunity to change up your wardrobe and expand your sartorial boundaries with refined styling choices and classic combinations.
