"My favorite look from the Marc by Marc Jacobs show was definitely the pajama-style red silk suit. I've always liked the idea of wearing sleepwear outside the house, it shows a nonchalance that only the most confident men can pull off, much like Hugh Hefner or Julian Schnabel. When dressed with slip-on shoes, the look can become too foppish for my taste, but I loved the way this was paired with beaten-up Converse sneakers. It gives it that rock'n'roll edge that is totally Marc."
"Tommy referenced Savile Row in the '60s and produced a strong show of tailoring, much of it in a houndstooth, prince-of-wales check. My favorite look was a simple furry peacoat and houndstooth pants. The collegiate stripes on underpinnings and bags gave the show a preppy edge which harked back to that all-American Hilfiger look."
"The MA-1 flight jacket is an essential classic that every man should have in his wardrobe, and Rag & Bone did a really great version of it this season. I think it would make any guy look effortlessly cool."
"I always love a top-to-toe look in one fabric. This camel wool shirt and pants combo at Richard Chai strikes a good balance between being a good runway look and something that a guy could actually wear on the streets; it is uniform dressing with an edge."
"A great example of layered coats, with the short bomber worn over a classic crombie. The Duckie Brown collection was full of great looks for Fall, my personal favorite was the beautiful red Scottish tweed coat, dressed with a classic bomber. I also love the layered double-cuff pants. This way of dressing is masculine but shows an irreverence that is very sexy."
"Although Amelia Earhart may not seem like a plausible reference point for a menswear show, something about this collection really worked for me. I particularly liked the tightly belted wool overcoat and pants with zips cuffs. The aviation theme can become a bit cosumey but many aviation clothes from that era are wardrobe staples today, like the classic flying jacket and the bomber. The use of more feminine fabrics in these garments was really modern to me."
"We saw tons of layering with coats this season and J. Crew did a really great and very wearable example. I've always been fond of a full denim suit, or canadian tuxedo as it is more commonly known. This rust colored denim layered with a classic crombie is a very chic way to dress for Fall."
"Again another great example of the layered coat look. I really liked Billy Reid's distressed tan leather jackets; here it looked great worn with an overcoat. The beardy, older casting was also a refreshing break from the same palette of 18-year-olds that walk most men's runways."
"It was really great to see a brand like Lacoste, who's heritage is founded on the simple croc polo, produce such a directional runway show. Designer Felipe Oliveira Baptista reinterpreted the brand and designed incredible color-blocked, futuristic sweatsuits which look very sexy, masculine and high-fashion at the same time. I liked them so much that I pulled three of them."
"Red has always been one of my favorite colors, and I'm glad to see a lot of militia scarlets all over the men's collections this season. This look with a two-tone red sweater and a technical gilet is a cool proposition."
"Tim Coppens is definitely one of the most interesting new menswear designers around, and his Fall collection did not disappoint. My favorite look was this monochrome black and white quilted top. We have seen a lot of quilting this season, and this is a good way to wear it as it emphasises your chest and shoulders."
"I really liked the architectural approach of Siki Im's collection for fall. The high point for me was a camel coat with a side zip and wide-leg pant made in the same fabric. Their is something very clean and utilitarian about the look that harks back to a '90s way of dressing. It feels really relevant again."
"The Duckie Brown duo Steven Cox and Daniel Silver have done a fantastic job of re-imagining Perry Ellis for a modern day man. My favorite look was definitely the paisley bomber jacket that seemed more like an upholstery fabric. Its a cool twist on a wardrobe staple."
"Fall has seen tons of camouflage, some executions more successful than others, but here at Michael Kors I think a narrow-leg camouflage pant worn with a boxy, oversized camel coat works well."
"More quilting at Band Of Outsiders, which was spot on trend. I liked the quilted top worn underneath a classic tux jacket, or a quilted pant worn with a simple sweater/hoodie combo."
