A few days back, tropical storm Emily sent refreshing drier, cooler weather our way. Having the windows open in our offices got us looking forward to getting dressed in fall 2011!
DOWN TO EARTH ECLECTIC
We see Ralph Lauren is getting inspired by the warehouse and art scene in Brooklyn with his new Denim & Supply line. “Moody, eclectic, and carefree, it’s the next generation of down-to-earth dressing.” Their website never disappoints, (but it’s a slow loader today with the homepage vid and all the special content). Here are some snippets of the scene.
Year after year we see RL set the tone over anyone else. What he puts out is what people end up wanting, whether we know it or not. We were so excited when the top dude on Ralph Lauren’s design team bought a pair of vintage Florsheim Imperials from us!
We are seeing military jackets with gold buttons, patches, and snorkel jackets. Lots of muted tones of navy, olive, and brown/gray alongside sherpa, fleece or fur. Cozy, cozy and down-to-earth. We think this piece from our catalog fits right in with lineup of men’s fall 2011 fashion.
There is a similar scene at Burberry with naval coats and gold buttons, olives and touches of orange in their mens line.
Just entered into our collection and available now is this WWII military jacket– it’s a pristine naval officer’s jacket with dentist emblems. We love how this piece has come around full circle and all those military details are today’s hottest trends in men’s fashion.
The details on this WWII officer’s jacket look like they are straight out of GQ’s what to wear– metallic threads, awesome metallic insignia, double breasted with gold buttons…not too mention it’s a one of a kind collector’s piece.
We can dig these muted tones and terrific textures. Ready to start packing away the summer garb.
