We’re past Labor Day, which means the fall collections are finally trickling into stores. Our favorite so far came to us by way of UrbanDaddy: the first men’s line from Richard Chai. Richard’s brother Eddie has been ruling lower Manhattan with an iron fist for the last few years as co-owner of Odin, but it’s safe to say Richard has more than nepotism on his side.
His new line looks like J. Crew circa 2020, with low-slung cardigans and multi-layered pea coats giving a surprising twist on one of our favorite looks. And we never say no to a v-neck, even if we don’t advise the all-oatmeal approach taken by the gentleman in the middle.
It’s shaping up to be an interesting autumn.
