Fall Getup Week: A Casual Outfit Combining Old and New Details
Fall Getup Week: A Casual Outfit Combining Old and New Details

From vintage-inspired sneakers to modernized plaids, this fall ensemble interweaves enduring staples with fresh details for an outfit with nostalgic roots and a contemporary edge.

Special thanks to Thursday Boot Co. for believing in Primer’s mission and sponsoring this Getup!

The seasons are changing, and so should your wardrobe. But updating your style doesn’t mean a complete overhaul. The key lies in blending — merging old with new, classic with modern. At first glance, this outfit seems composed of classic comfort, but a closer look reveals the contemporary twists that make it undeniably current.

What we’ve curated here is not just an outfit but a statement. It’s a nod to the enduring styles that have defined generations while embracing the fresh cuts, patterns, and fabrics that characterize today’s fashion landscape. The result? An effortlessly cool, casual outfit that you can wear to about 80% of anywhere you have to go this fall.

Shaker Stitch Sweater

Shaker stitch is a particular rib stitch that lends itself to prominent vertical “strips” or ribs, creating a textured sweater that’s less chunky than a cable knit. This Old Navy sweater is made from 100% cotton, making it considerably lighter and stretchier than other rib stitches. It’s a classic design, but the modern fit and fabric choice make it an affordable and versatile addition to your fall wardrobe.

Gum Sole Sneakers

Gum sole sneakers are both the original and the refresh. The contrasting sole makes these less clean cut than an all white pair, grounding the outfit while also complementing the other brown tones in the look. Thursday, just like their boots, leather or waxed jackets, and dress shoes, takes making their smart casual sneakers seriously: They’re made with a quality of materials even some dressier shoes don’t get the advantage of.

Handmade with full grain Nappa Leather with shock-absorbant performance footbeds, these smart casual sneakers will give you function and form for the long term. The gum soles are available in 4 color options while the full low top lineup offers nineteen colorways.

French Terry 5 Pocket Pants

These may look like any old 5 pocket pants but Faherty’s take are made of super soft and stretchy French Terry – yep that same material the best sweatshirts are made of, but make no mistake, these aren’t sweatpants that look like jeans.

They’re a comfortable and presentable everyday option that works for casual and smart casual outfits, more akin to Banana Republic’s Traveler line than a pair of Hanes.


timex watch with tan strap and rose gold metal accents

This may be both a Timex and a simple design but the Fairfield is anything but boring. Featuring a wonderfully low contrast design with the tan strap, cream dial, and rose gold tone metal, the shades of this watch tie directly to the other tones of the outfit. Plus, at under $100 its a style bargain that still has personality.

Plaid Shirt Jacket

Crafted from robust cotton twill fabric, this plaid shirt jacket boasts a comfortably relaxed fit, equally at home as outerwear or an all-day layer like a trucker jacket or shawl collar cardigan. Forget the typical Lands’ End plaid; this design features a bold, chunky pattern that strikes the perfect balance between retro throwback and trend-aware sophistication. It’s the kind of style you’d expect to see from upscale brands like Corridor. And did I mention? This affordable option is made entirely of 100% cotton.

Belt & Marled Boot Socks

Thursday Boot Co. extends its expertise beyond footwear with a belt and socks that perfectly complement this outfit. The leather belt, crafted from full-grain leather, strikes an ideal balance with its 1.5″ width—neither too dressy nor too casual. It’s a ‘buy once, cry once‘ kind of belt that you’ll keep for years. As for your socks, they’re not just an afterthought in an outfit. These are made in Italy from combed cotton, their marled texture adds subtle complexity to the ensemble, elevating them from mere foot mittens to a contributor to your style.

Come back tomorrow for the last day in this year’s Fall Getup Week!
