When messing with cherished Fall traditions, it's best to play it safe with minor tweaks, like serving a deep-fried turkey on Thanksgiving, or inviting girls to your tailgate party, but never more than two. For classic fall gear with a subtle edge, check out Pegleg NYC
PG's new relaxed-fit line takes time-honored fall patterns and has tasteful fun with them by adding...other time-honored fall patterns. 100% cotton buttondowns include a red/green plaid piece with interior tartan accents, b&w checkered and green/navy tartan numbers with flannel-detailed insides, and a flannel with b&w checked inner, a pattern reversal for when you can no longer stand hiding your lumberjackedness. Corduroy-collar, four-pocket jackets feature similarly detailed cotton linings, with shells in either water resistant cotton (charcoal w/ salmon lining, black/white w/ flannel), or bright yellow rubber, which accessorizes great with a beard and fish sticks
Peg stretches some boundaries further, with slim-fit indigo-checkered jeans, a blocky six-colored fleece, and cotton tees with large-print roses -- wear one to Thanksgiving dinner for a new twist on the old theme of your dad being disappointed in you.
