Fleece Forecast For Fall 2017

Among the harbingers of autumn—all things pumpkins, really—none quite, sartorially-speaking, mark the change in seasons as a fall fleece. For fall's in-between weather, few garms really serve to keep you warm and wind-proof. (Alternatively, a good fleece is a sure-thing for offices that are always dialed to frigid.) Below, the best of the bunch, ranging from the economical to couture, for men, women, and kiddos. Stay stylish and swarthy out there, pumpkin fanatics.

No serious discussion of fleece lacks a nod to Patagonia, the ur-brand for fuzzy pullovers and zip-ups, available in a kaleidoscope of colors.

Adventure gear haberdashers The North Face also have a strong fleece game. Their gear tends towards the more technical but is no less suitable for the streets or hills.
