Welcome to The Great Try-On. With fall on the horizon, we seized the opportunity to try on some of the best fall pieces from some of your favorite brands, documenting the process along the way. We believe that the most foolproof way to shop online is to see an item IRL and to read candid reviews, so we hope that this leads you to some successful fall purchases.
There are a few stores I turn to on the regular to complete my wardrobe each season. Yep, Madewell happens to be one of said retailers. The editor-favorite brand actually launched a men’s offering a few years ago, and I’ve been hooked ever since. More specifically, the assortment of top-notch basics continues to pique my interest. I essentially use Madewell items as the foundational elements in many of my most coveted looks. The black skinny jeans, specifically, are one of my tried-and-true staples. That said, the entire fall Madewell men’s line that recently came out is quite noteworthy.
So with that in mind, I took the opportunity to order a few of the items I liked to try on and see what would work best for me. I also wrote up my review of the pieces. You know, in case you’re in need of a little shopping inspiration for yourself or to recommend to anyone in your inner circle. Fun fact—many of the finds you’ll see definitely have the power to become closet go-tos given their highly versatile nature.
Oh, I also wanted to share some of the picks that caught my eye in the women’s collection. You’ll find those items if you keep scrolling. Okay, enough chatting here. There’s some fall shopping to be done.
