    I'll remember this when you get caught up in Pitti fever, even if the sweater is not from J. Crew.

    I keep seeing totes in collections but never actually any guys using one. Big city thing?

    I imagine because they're pretty horrible for the most part and nearly all of them stray into man purse territory.

    Apart from the terrible douchebag delivery, all of those items are very solid and well-picked choices for an autumn wardrobe. I wouldn't want to tote, but thats personal.

    I lol'd hard since it's easy to imagine some guys here actually experiencing that.

    "utility tote, statement sweater, tortoise shell, people will appreciate your practicality, modern silhouette, no fall story would be complete"

    Gayest post ever, and that's saying a lot given the very tough competition. Congratulations

    Agreed. I've been given several totes over the summer and all immediately went into Value Village pile.

    However, these "essentials" leave me wondering if pants are a non-essential item this fall. (Maybe freedom from pants is more than just a Independence Day bicycle ride?)

    I pretty much just disagree. I have no problem with anything on the list, but I personally, have never used a tote bag (although those recyclable grocery bags come close) and am not big on tortoise shell sunglasses. I will also pretty much always pick regular boots over desert boots.
