We stopped by the semi-annual floor show that is the (capsule) show yesterday, and while we aren’t quite ready to spill the goods on everything we saw, we thought we’d start off with a roundup of some of the best-dressed gentlemen on hand.

Naturally, there was a lot to choose from, but one of our favorites was this gentleman repping Yuketen boots. The bowtie is crisp, the round glasses are on-trend and the boots are impeccable, as expected, but the real genius here is the perfectly tanned leather apron. It’s a legit workwear item, even if it’s a little too extreme for mainstream consumption. (We predict an apron trendlet in fall of ’09, based entirely on this picture.)

These two gentlemen are Steven Rojas of Archetype Showroom (left) and Phil Oh of Street Peeper (right), and while we aren’t picking a favorite, we will say that loose-knit sweaters made quite a showing this year. On the other hand, we never say no to a well-knotted tie.
