Autumn fashion for men – 3 Fashionable looks

The hot summer is slowly coming to an end and it’s time to get the autumn fashion out of the wardrobe. In terms of fashion, autumn with its wonderful colours is a beautiful season – finally we are allowed to wear scarves, turtlenecks, sheepskin jackets, tweed fabrics or wool pullovers again.

Autumn fashion for men – 3 fashionable looks

The days are getting cooler again, the game- and truffle season is coming and we are already looking forward to our journey to Piemonte. Autumn is not only an highlight in terms of culinary delights, but also when it comes to fashion. Today we show 3 fashionable variations of outfits for the coming autumn days, we leave the suit at the wardrobe – but you can already look forward to a few English looks in 2-3 weeks.

1. Two outfits with a sheepskin jacket

Already in the 40s they were worn by the British Royal Air Force, they are the fashion accessory in various Hollywood movies and at the last Pitti we saw that sheepskin jackets are back in fashion. Sheepskin is hard-wearing and therefore well suited for the production of clothing. The jacket is perfect for cool days and evenings and can be combined with turtlenecks, chino trousers, wool sweaters or jeans. 

Small insider tip: Cockpit USA has a few very nice models. A sheepskin jacket goes particularly well with boots.

September will probably remain relatively warm, so autumn fashion can also be combined with a trench coat. Here you can see a combination of a trench coat, turtleneck made of merino wool and black boots.

Huawei Matebook X – Our Review

I’ve been using Huawei Matebook X for a few weeks now – so, I had the opportunity to test it from the point of view of a traveling entrepreneur.

A lot of my time I’m not at my desk, but at airports, train stations, in the train, in the plane, in the cigar lounge or in the co-working space. And this is exactly where a few features of the Huawei Matebook X come in handy, but more about that later.

Huawei Matebook X – Our review

Huawei has already attracted a lot of attention with its smartphones, and now the Chinese technology company is celebrating its debut on the notebook market.

++ The Huawei Matebook X is outstandingly implemented

As I said, I travel a lot. Therefore I would like to emphasize the following points:

  • Great performance with 8GB Ram and 512GB SSD
  • With 1,05 kg weight the ideal daily companion
  • Unlike most ultrabooks, the Matebook X has a display in 3:2 format. Narrow screen frame, brighter and more color-accurate
  • Noble and modern design
  • Considering the size, the Matebook X delivers a very good sound quality

+ What I appreciate very much

Now a few more points that support me in everyday life:

  • Battery performance – Under heavy use the battery lasts about 4 hours, with occasional use it lasts a full working day.
  • Easy handling, can be taken everywhere without problems
  • Scope of delivery better than competitors – HDMI, USB, VGA and other adapters included

– There is still room for improvement here

  • The touchpad takes some time to get used to
  • The case is susceptible to fingerprints and dirt

Note: Huawei presents the first notebook here and easily competes with its rivals. It’s the ideal notebook for anyone who travels a lot. It convinces through its performance, a solid battery life and the chic successful design – lately someone in a plane looked enviously at my new Matebook. I am thrilled!
