This feature originally appears in Complex's August/September issue.

It doesn’t matter if you call it burgundy, maroon, crimson, or something else—the color is consistent. Fall is a natural fit for darker clothing, and bordeaux continues to be a favorite for many labels. From clean kicks to versatile bomber jackets, it’s easier than ever to work the color into your rotation. Whether mixed with black, gray, or navy, or contrasted with lighter khaki, white, or stonewashed denim, the deep red hue adds warmth and richness to any outfit. Besides, there’s something intoxicating about a guy who looks like a glass of merlot.
