Billy Reid is having a good day.

First, his Levi’s collaboration arrives with uniformly handsome gear—already a victory lap from last year’s CFDA awards—and then he unveils his fall collection with even handsomer gear.

Our favorite from both crops would have to be this chocolate moleskin suit, which single-handedly sold us on one of the fustier fabrics in the menswear canon. It’s velvet’s understated cousin and one of the thicker fabric anyone dares to make a suit out of—which also means it won’t be seasonable until November at the earliest. But for this one, we can wait.
