With its ultra light cotton-nylon construction, and short cropped trousers, this suit is just begging to be taken down to the…

Uniqlo +J Fall/Winter Final Collection

In many ways, this final collection from Japanese brand Uniqlo & Jil Sander is the end of an era. The first to bring high fashion influence to a mass market brand, Sander paved the way for others to take up the cause of democratizing fashion. This final collection is one of Ms. Sander’s strongest, with…

Video: A Conversation with Nick Wooster

Whether you agree with Nick Wooster’s personal style choices is completely irrelevant. What’s relevant, however, is how well he understands the recent shift in menswear. He fully understands how the younger guy is more concerned about quality and how a garment is constructed then perhaps ever before. This video gives an introspective look into his…

Rugby Ralph Lauren Bleecker St.

When I first heard that Rugby would be opening a menswear only store on Bleecker St. in NYC, I was intrigued by how the store would hold up against its University Place counterpart. Blogger Hollister Hovey covered the opening, and based on his photos alone, I can safely say that the company has elevated the…

Video: Ian Velardi Fall/Winter 2011

Creating a promotional video for his debut collection was no difficult task for Ian Velardi. Well, at least it doesn’t appear that way. The style of this video reminds me of the keen eye of photographer extraordinaire, Bruce Weber with its slick, suggestive feel. While having a beautiful model scantily dressed trying on various garments…

Club Monaco Fall 2 2011 Collection

Club Monaco is no stranger to suiting, and have been offering gents quality options at affordable prices for years. Their suits come in two very different fits: the “Kennedy” (full straight leg pant, relaxed fit jacket) and the “Wright” (tapered leg pant, fitted jacket with narrow lapels, higher button closures). It doesn’t take a genius…

Michael Bastian Spring/Summer 2012

After fully digesting Michael Bastian’s mainline “comeback” presentation (I know he loathes that term), I can safely say that Basty is continuing to elevate his collections. This time by drawing in-depth inspiration from the life of James Dean. Some of my favourite pieces from his s/s ’12 collection are the beige knit crew neck sweater,…

J. Crew Spring 2012 Suiting at NYFW

J.Crew head designer Frank Muytjens looked to the paintings of Fairfield Porter and Rauschenberg as the inspiration of his latest collection for the label. Mixing various hues of the same color for interesting ensembles, the new range blended Porter’s fresh colors with the tactual knack of Rauschenberg. From militaristic pieces, updated from the archives or…

Enzo Caruso Sports Suit

What is a sports suit? Well according to Los Angeles tailor Enzo Caruso “The central idea behind the sports suit is the idea of “composito” (or composite). The idea is to “compose” a look by mixing and matching the sports suit’s different components with other pieces in your wardrobe. Carefully of course, rather than indiscriminately.”…

Phineas Cole Fall/Winter 2011

When Paul Stuart introduced the Phineas Cole brand back in Fall 2007, the central focus was to provide a younger customer with Paul Stuart luxury but with modern, trim cuts. As you can probably guess, the pieces in Phineas Cole’s line — much like Paul Stuart — are always super impressive and extremely luxe. The…

Simon Spurr Spring/Summer 2012 Collection

Simon Spurr is already one of the most talked-about men’s collections of New York Fashion Week, & looking at these images from the runway it’s easy to see why. Taking his refined, austere style of menswear, Spurr has injected the collection with optimism & swagger through the use of bold patterns, mixed materials, & distinct…

Beams Fall/Winter 2011: Mr. David for Gentleman Wardrobe

Japanese retailer Beams have unveiled a sharp fashion spread entitled “Mr. David for Gentleman Wardrobe.” Not only do the garments look incredibly luxurious, but the styling is on point, too. The plaid sport coats are certainly noteworthy pieces that just scream autumn. The Black Watch model particularly caught my eye. Pair it with a crisp…
