Men's Fashion: Curated Looks for Spring/Summer 2015, pt. I

The Jet-Setter

    The Jet-Setter looks to the past to influence their future. The same grandiose nostalgia that makes Don Draper the coolest thing since the other side of the pillow dictates this vintage, resort-inspired look. The only thing left in the past is the boxy, billowy fits of yesteryear: a Woolrich short sleeve button-up provides just enough refined style to hide the fact that it’s comfortable in the heat, and AG’s Lux Khakis, a straight leg fit with minor taper, are both tailored and timeless. Leather boat shoes and Ray-Ban’s eternal Tortoiseshell Wayfarers complete the ensemble. The Jet-Setter would be right at home in a Hawaiian beach bungalow or a first class cabin. Pair this look with your favorite carry-on, and please keep that tray table up – your flight is leaving soon.

The Wolf of Long Island
Shirt: Vineyard Vines Oxford Party Tucker Shirt (in store only)
Shorts: Vineyard Vines Club Short in Stone (in store only)
Belt: Vineyard Vines Signal Flag Club Belt (in store only)

    The Wolf of Long Island lets their voice do the talking, but a shirt that says “Party” on more than just the tag is a bonus. It takes confidence to wear a shirt and belt combination that covers ROY G to BIV, but then again, that’s exactly what you’re going for. This color combination – pastels, light khaki, rich brown leathers – is as traditional Prep as can be, and only further enhances the Northeastern, nautical-inspired look associated with everyone from Presidents to golfers the world over. The fits and materials harken back to classical 1960’s patterns, so expect less taper than modern cuts and adjust sizes accordingly. Whether you’re an “old sport” or a junior analyst, you’ll feel your best when you’ve become the Wolf.

The Modernist
Jacket: Marc New York “Bryan” Jacket in Black (in store only)
Watch: Luminox Sea Anu 4221.CW “Navy Seal” (in store only)

    The Modernist is minimal. The Modernist is clean. Above all, the Modernist is functional. Monochrome yet prominent, understated but bold, the Modernist is an urbane urbanite who combines a mastery of style basics with their own personal touch. A Marc New York bomber stylishly resists the elements while a Patagonia tech fabric long-sleeve keeps you comfortable all day long. The camo hat and milspec Luminox watch compliment the jacket’s technical details in addition to diversifying the otherwise flat color palette. White sneakers round out the look, and are the single most versatile shoe a man can own. The Modernist is the perfect blend of utility, style, and contemporary fit: a jacket, jeans, and sneakers have never looked so clean.


This is Part II of our "Men's Curated Looks" collection for Spring/Summer 2015.
