Well-crafted style starts the year on a handsome note


Menswear makes a statement this season by taking cues from the fit, craftsmanship, and distinct style of eras gone by—classic with an edge, where texture sets the tone, and detail is key. Layers of understated pattern—herringbone, tweed, stripes, paisley, and plaid—teamed with a pop of color to create a bold, confident look. The sophisticated alternative to a ho-hum everyday aesthetic and a fresh take on iconic men’s fashion. We’ll call it smarter casual.
