The Highsnobiety Fall Fit Toolkit is your manual for dressing well this season, from wellies to weather-ready running gear.

Many seasons have passed since fleeces were only recognized as a functional item reserved for hiking dads — now they're a steadfast fall staple, much like most other things that used to be reserved for, well, hiking dads, actually. And with the garment's ever-growing popularity comes a wealth of increasingly stylish designs. While the classic Patagonia fleeces we associate with the ‘90s are still doing their thing, labels like MSGM have brought a more conceptual edge.

We couldn’t solely focus on the fashion world’s adaptations of the fleece, though. Outdoor and sports labels have earned their spot at the fleece table by paving the way for the new kids on the block. So whether you’re after something utilitarian, brimming with normcore appeal, or something altogether more luxurious, our selection has something for you.
