It's December already and things are gearing up to the mad dash to New Year's Eve. But we can't let that deter us from rummaging about in the muddle of images that crowd my head, can we? No, we cannot. So here is this week's sampling gleaned from the rubble.
It is true that I do go on and on about how massively boring most men's clothing is. And certainly a good deal of the not boring stuff is far too challenging in terms of seeming too effete to play well for the majority of dudes out there. This though, has a right blend of boldness, brio, and dash that makes it both exciting looking, and still plays within the space that confines modern menswear. It's a classic duffle coat, even to the loop and toggle closures, but it has that amazing hugely scaled pattern. Sure, it's on a scale that could only be worn effectively by someone who was themselves large scaled, but it still takes the range of menswear and broadens it a skosh, without taking it somewhere that would frighten the guys off. Good work from Tommy Ton. Fall/Winter 2015.
Well, thanks for going along on this ride today. Enjoy your weekend!!!!
