School's back in session. Whether or not you're actually going to class, backpacks, like Coach's latest release, are in for fall.
We're used to Denver's up-and-down weather—and we can't complain about the unseasonably warm temps recently—but we know the cold is coming, and soon. When it does, you'll want a wardrobe that's both functional (aka, warm) and good-looking (obviously). Here are a few of our favorite menswear pieces...
