This, friends, is menswear market week here in our home base of NYC. So for the past three days, we’ve scoured the markets in search of the best of the best of what you’ll be coveting next fall and winter.
Another dispatch from New York Fashion Week, which—so far—is persisting, despite the impending storm.
Leave it to Todd Snyder to somehow take all three trends we’ve been seeing lately—fur trim, leather and belted outerwear—and turn them into one spectacular coat.
In the wrong hands, all that black leather and shearling could end up looking like the sort of thing an over-the-hill mafia hit man might wear, but Snyder keeps it trim and luxe. We might choose a different pair of shoes to minimize the amount of black leather happening, but otherwise it’s exactly what you’d want to wrap yourself up in during weather like this.
All this sun and warm weather has really got us looking forward to wearing... coats.
Once we got a whiff of what under-the-radar Italian outerwear label Esemplare was cooking up, fall couldn’t come fast enough. It’s the sort of rakish stuff that’s been blessed with the Italian touch of attention to detail and tasteful outlandishness—for example: the fishtail parka lined with cable-knit merino wool. Or the shearling-lined down anorak. It’s all such handsome stuff that we’d be remiss not to share it with you—regardless of the current temps.
