Every year we go through it. The winding down of summer, and the progressive transition into winter. As the Earth tilts a little further away from the sun, and the days grow shorter, being ready for a full day of weather takes a bit more preparation. From frost covered mornings, on to sunny afternoons, and brisk cool evenings that remind us that the cold bite of winter is right around the corner, having the proper attire for the day’s activities is of extreme importance.

Originating in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, a place world renowned for outdoor adventure under just about any conditions, Stio has made it their mission to inspire connection with the outdoors as comfortably as possible. Whether your adventure is epic in scope, or you’re looking for a more relaxing tour of the wilderness, Stio’s 2015 Fall Collection has been designed to make every experience this time of year as good as it can get in comfort and in style. When the necessity to adjust with the temperature is more than likely, it’s all about layering, so today we’ll take a look at everything from the base layer to the insulated outer from the Stio Fall 2015 Collection.

Men’s Basis Stretch Merino Crew

Key Features:

  • Merino ST™, 95% Merino 5% Spandex, 200g/m2, 18.5 micron
  • Athletic design ideal for aerobic activity
  • Flatlock seams for comfort
  • Heat transfer interior labels
  • Stio® Wrap logo label
  • Weight: 9 oz.
  • Trim Fit – Our most close-fitting cut. A contemporary, more fashionable look, perfect for the modern mountain gentleman.
  • Imported from Canada

Just the right combination of fit and stretch, the Stretch Merino Crew is about as versatile as a base layer can be. This shirt is light and breathable, and the flatlock seams are positioned in a way that keeps discomfort to a minimum while managing to maintain optimal mobility. Not a total form fitting base, the Merino Crew can be worn by itself on those sunnier fall days and still maintain a minimalist sense of fashion. The stretch material holds when it should, so during the hotter moments of an early fall day, those sleeves can cinch up on the forearms with little concern of falling out of place.

Men’s Rivet Jean

Key Features:

  • Switchback Denim, 65% Cotton 34% Polyester 1% Elastane, 11oz with Sorbtek®
  • Sorbtek® catches moisture and wicks it away from the body for quick evaporation
  • 100% Cotton hand pocket bags
  • Classic 5 pocket design
  • Custom Stio® Pinecone emboss shank at center front closure
  • Zippered fly
  • Gusseted crotch
  • Custom Pinecone embossed rivets for pocket reinforcement
  • Flat felled outseam with nylon binding
  • Embroidered Stio® logo
  • Weight: 20 oz.
  • Regular Fit – Our medium cut. Roomier than Trim but designed with athletic performance and comfort in mind.
  • Imported

This is a terrific hybrid of the old and the new. The Rivet Jean has a sense of style reminiscent of the old time work pant, but with materials and design that lend to mobility and comfort. The combination of materials work great to wick away excess moisture, whether the result of persperation or precipitation, so when those temperatures switch gears you can rely on these pants being as dry as possible to regulate your body temperature. The gusseted inseam provides a comfortable fit for any activity you may be engaged in, and although this is technically a relaxed fitting jean, we found no issue wearing it with all combinations of footwear from flip-flops to work boots. This is a work pant with rugged style, and wearable for just about any fall occasion.

With regards to fit, the Rivet Jean is only available in 2″ increments in both the waist and the inseam, so if you’re particular about size you may be let down a tad. Fortunately, there is a good amount of give to the material, so even without a perfect fit the comfort isn’t bad at all.

Men’s Miter Flannel Shirt

Key Features:

  • Brushed Cotton Flannel, 100% Cotton, 40/2, 131g/m2 with garment wash
  • Custom yarn dye plaid
  • Chest pockets with laser etched logo buttons
  • Pinecone laser etched buttons at front placket
  • Modified shirttail hem wears nicely both tucked in or left out
  • Stio® logo label for subtle Stio® signature at chest pocket
  • Hidden center front placket Stio® logo label for subtle Stio® signature
  • Weight: 11 oz.
  • Regular Fit – Our medium cut. Roomier than Trim but designed with athletic performance and comfort in mind.
  • Imported

The classic rugged look meets a sophistication in style and material. The brushed cotton flannel that makes up the Miter shirt does not only feel comfortable, but maintains an appearance of comfort from our experience. More than a few times, friends and acquaintances have asked if they could feel this material, and they were impressed indeed when they were given the opportunity. Soft and lightweight, this is the perfect addition to a layered fall outfit. If it gets a little warm out, go right ahead and roll up those sleeves. With an extra sleeve button above the cuff to be undone, rolling the sleeves is as easy as it gets, and even rolled above the elbow there is little to no discomfort to the bicep. Optimally light weight, but still keeping in the warmth, the Miter Flannel is comfortable either tucked in or hanging loose.

Warmth without bulk, the Lofted Sky Insulated Jacket is quite possibly one of the finest fall jackets we’ve ever come across. The PrimaLoft® SILVER Insulation is revolutionary in its lightness versus warmth, and the Pertex® Microlight Nylon is as breathable as it is resistant to the elements. With four exterior pockets and two interior pockets, there’s always a place for whatever you need to take with you. The lower hem is equipped with adjustment chords on both sides, so securing a proper fit around the waist is made easy. Aside from functionality, the Lofted Sky Jacket is noticeably stylish on just about any scene where it can be worn, combining that old sense of ski-bum hip with a bit of urban cool. Really, there’s nothing much to complain about here.

Let The Outside In Hat

Key Features:

  • Wool blend
  • Mesh back

Serving the function of just about any hat, this “Let The Outside In” Hat will keep the sun out of your eyes, but also importantly, it’ll tie the ensemble together. Avoiding the classically blatant logo smear, this accessory is a bit less obvious by displaying only the company slogan on its exterior and supporting the essence of the brand rather than advertising itself. This hat is loaded with color accents that match other items from this collection well, thus completing the full look, if that’s what you’re going for. The construction is that of the common trucker hat though, so warmth and comfort are not the most optimal here.
