Labor Day has come and gone in the United States and that's the start of our switch from summer to fall wardrobes.
Of course, it will remain summer for a couple more weeks, and any switch to heavier fabrics should take place later in the season. This is a time to begin changing palettes instead, replacing cream, light gray and light blue with darker hues. In other words, wear warm weather clothing in navy and chocolate brown, like the suits worn in the photo by Sergio and Pier Luigi Loro Piana of the eponymous textile and luxury goods company.
Shoes should also display a darker palette. White bucks and spectators have had their run, and most tans ought to be replaced by browns and oxblood.
The temperature remains warm but autumn is in the air. The seasonal changeover begins.
