DSquared Fall09

Any “fly boy” that knows anything, knows Dsquared.  Dean and Dan Caten know how to set trends and keep them fresh.  They’ve perfected the bow-tie look and how it can turn a pair of jeans and a sweater into something timeless and classic.  This fall, and always in my opinion, is all about layers.  Grab that hoodie and put a vest over it; a t-shirt, cardigan, and wool scarf can keep those chilly breezes away.


Emporio Armani

Emporio Armani, label of the Armani family,  gave me something different this fall: casual looks that could be street-wear.  Continuing to use the best fabrics and materials, Emporio uses the trends for fall; thick sweaters, textured fabrics, jean, and high-top boots in the collection.  Even the baddest boy could get away with Armani this season.

D&G Fall09

This fall Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana of D&G pretty much set the look for how men should dress for the season.  Using chunky-knit sweaters, leathers for piping, gloves, bags, boots, and incorporating lots of black; this D&G ready-to-wear collection will definitely prepare the guys for what the weather brings.

Band of Outsiders

This fall I discovered a new favorite for Men’s Wear: Band of Outsiders.

Band of Outsiders’ garments ooze individuality, ranging from looks that should be strictly for boating along the Maine coast, to casual tailored slacks with a matching blazer made of raw-rugged fabrics and cashmere socks.

Peep the boat shoes… Love them.  Can you say, signature piece?  That’s what I’m thinking.  Available in different hues, heights, and materials; these boat shoes are everything.

FW.09.PhoneboothLegUp- Band of Outsiders

Althhhough this is suppose to be a brand shout-out and a post for men, Outsiders has a fabulous line for women: Boy.  Marisa Tomei is shown here  wearing Boy and a pair of Manolo Blahnik for Band of Outsiders strap up stilettos.  What I would like to see? A pair of shin-high, boat boots.  Just like the one for men, only for women.  I’m nervous just thinking about it!

Alexander McQueen is one of THE creative geniuses of our time, but a slept on gem.  McQueen is known mostly for his womens line; however his clothing for men is stylish, edgy, and oh-so-appropriate rolled into one.  For fall, McQueen focuses on the must have for the winter Camel Coat and leathers that would make a cow want to rock it.  Although he is out of the ordinary, Alexander McQueen’s clothing is far from it.
