Clean, tailored suits a must in menswear this fall
Question of the Day
RAG & BONE
Marcus Wainwright and David Neville of Rag & Bone took cues from military and formalwear styles.
The collection showcased classic menswear _ jackets, pants, vests and suits _ but diverged in some pieces with wide stripes or ombre black to red prints.
The designers outfitted many of their models in black or brown officer boots. There was a peacoat, army-green long coat and an air force blue tweed coat. Leather detailed collars on tailored sweaters and coats.
Bring back the baggy pants.
Duckie Brown’s design team of Steven Cox and Daniel Silver showed roomy, swingy men’s pants in large plaids.
The designers played with shape for their pants, showing trousers with dropped crotches, wide legs or made with chunky sweater material. Suits were clean, focusing on two and three-button jackets in tweed and herringbone along with a black double-breasted coat.
“It’s got to go away from that grungy guy,” Cox said. “I think it’s going to be that unkempt guy in a suit.”
Cox and Silver paired their looks with winter accessories, chunky knit turban-style hats, long sweater gloves and hats made from Mongolian shearling.
“They play with volume in a way that no one else does,” Thoreson said. “Their construction and tailoring is impeccable but they’re having fun with it.”
J. Crew’s menswear collection had the brand’s classic preppy look, clean two-button suits, pants and navy cardigan sweaters. Designers did bring the colored jeans trend from womenswear into menswear. There were jeans for men in orange, purple and bright blue. Men’s pants _ dress and casual _ were cuffed at the ankles.
