Is it us or does it feel like summer just came and went?

Here’s the good news – you can start rocking your fall gear.

And the even-better news? The folks over at Suitsupply are just about to release their ’15 fall/winter collection.

We here at ESM think it’s a pretty fair trade for losing those warm summer nights.

In fact, we’re digging the check patterns on the suits and the 70’s inspired style (think Robert Redford in his prime) without the over-the-top bell bottoms and feathered hairstyles.

Below are some of our favorites, as described in Robert Redford movies:

And for those of you who want more details, here’s the entire official press release from the folks at Suitsupply for your enjoyment:

Suitsupply’s new fall/winter collection combines the wintertime mainstays of refined fabrics and an impeccable construction.

The collection is build up of luxurious layers, cashmere knitwear combined with rich checked suits in 70’s inspired fabrics. It is reflecting the use of designs of the checks, prints, and the boucle used in a subtle way.

The Inspiration is taken from the iconic subcultures of the late 60’s and early ‘70s: everything from iconic photo’s of the Pirelli Calendars to the movies of Russ Meyer. This cool yet sultry atmosphere sets the tone for a collection of sumptuous luxury: cashmere, baby camel, alpaca, and soft tweeds, designed and developed by Suitsupply in collaboration with the finest fabric mills in Ireland and Italy.

Trousers are becoming slightly wider with the introduction of a double pleated model and self-edge chinos in a more relaxed fit. Also the safari suit is a new edition to this collection made in soft tweed herringbones combined with camel hair coats.

The palette for this season, too, draws from the continental spectrum of this era, pairing the same fabrics with warm tones of navy, plum, amber, and forest green. Clothing that effect a commanding presence, from the overcast streets of England to the intimate nightclubs of Paris.

And as always, it’s all accompanied by a tasteful and well-crafted array of evergreen staples, with shoes, bags, and accessories, creating the ideal cold-weather suit of armor—shielded against the elements, but layered enough to shed, when the temperature inside warms back up.
