  • Kempt Staff

Jason Bateman GQ

Now that it’s spring, everything is abloom—even your local newsstands, thanks to the newest crop of magazines swathed in brightly colored menswear.

In other words: the April issues have arrived.

And in our grand tradition of taking the pulse of printed menswear journalism, we’ve thumbed through all of the highly glossy/flammable pages of the usual suspects to give you the rundown on the upcoming trends, recent cultural phenomena and the requisite amount of eye candy.

Without further ado, the April Issues.»

The Dress Code for the Deposed Heir

The red bow tie is hard to pull off, but if you’ve recently lost your fortune and are wandering the city in search of authentic life, you might get a pass.

This snap comes from an upcoming Jason Bateman flick, The Longest Week, currently filming on location on Wall Street. (If you guessed it was a mashup of Arthur and Arrested Development, you weren’t far off.) More importantly, he got his suit courtesy of Doyle Mueser, one of the West Village’s best bespoke shops—together with loafers from Industry of All Nations.

We wouldn’t normally recommend loafers with a suit—but in the case of the fictional idle rich, we’ll make an exception.
