They regularly hold late night shopping events – or shall I say parties really, complete with food and drink – a perfect addition to keeping Minneapolis from feeling too sleepy while shopping for a new wardrobe.

The upcoming color palette for this season seems to be a bit subdued with dark colors like forest green, dark chambray and navy that lend themselves well to pops of bright color here and there. Overall the style trend is about mixing casual and dressy styles and fabrics.

I recently spoke to style specialist and sales associate Sam about what are the suggested must-haves for the Fall/Winter season.

* A traditional yet casual shooting jacket from the likes of D.S. Dundee is a piece that will serve a variety of uses including dressing up a pair of jeans, finishing off a dress shirt and dress pants on a casual business day and keeping warm on a crisp day when combined with appropriate cool-weather accessories.
* A weather-proof shoe in neutral colors with bright accent colors by a shoemaker like Swims provides multi-functional benefits: practicality for the inevitable winter slush, a stylish accent for the traditional work “uniform” and durable quality for the harsh months ahead.
* A bright colored leather duffle by Jack Spade, available in orange makes a serious style statement. It communicates that you have arrived in terms of being confident with your career track and you are serious about investing in your career.

Perhaps one of my personal favorite trends is the return of the clean, dark denim jean from the likes of Naked & Famous. This essential foundation can be dressed up and down while making any man look taller and leaner.

Other notably stylish items include a sleek technology device carrying case, think iPads and laptops or whatever they come up with next.

Also beautiful handles for standard razors, no more cheap disposable razors, instead treat yourself to something a bit nicer.

And lastly is this durable lizard-skin wallet and cardholder.
