The Avant Flannel
File this one along with your pre-fall wishlist. It’s from Adam Kimmel’s forward-thinking Carhartt collab, and a sharp twist on the plaids you’ve been seeing just about everywhere. We’re calling it “futuristic lumberjack.”
That means muted colors and line arrangements that look straight out of Tron. It also means a surprisingly versatile item: Throw a blazer over it and you’ll be straight out of a Woody Allen movie—we mean that in a good way—but leave it untucked and you won’t look out of place at a Fruit Bats show. Not bad, Mr. Kimmel.
