‘I’ on Fashion: Tis’ The Season

November 12, 2010

Now that Halloween is behind us, the winter holidays are just ahead, and that means we can pack away the naughty nurse and fireman costumes for another year along with our early fall wardrobes and go fetch our Fair Isle sweaters out of the cedar chest. We’re excited by the innovation we’re seeing in outerwear this season. For men it’s hard to go wrong with the classic peacoat in navy or black, but why not stand out from the crowd? Wings + Horns has given us another twist on classic menswear with their peacoat that combines traditional lapels, button placement and fabric (navy Melton wool) with black leather sleeves and pocket linings reminiscent of baseball jackets. Not to be outdone, Paris-based A.P.C. presents another possible deviation from the ordinary with their Merino wool knit peacoat. Boasting a shawl collar—a trend continuing from past seasons—a beautiful heavyweight knit and a short length, the coat looks great either fastened or unfastened, and fills a niche somewhere between heavy sweaters and car coats. Engineered Garments is a brand that has received some backlash recently, not through any fault of their own but simply because the overwhelmingly positive response to their collections by fashion blogs has sent buzzkillers everywhere into overdrive. But make no mistake: Daiki Suzuki’s designs are still spot on, and the new Explorer Jacket is no exception. Its overdyed indigo fabric is an EG staple, but you’ve never seen it quite like this: a fitted short jacket with slash pockets, an asymmetrical closure, throat latch and oversized lapels, making for the sharpest motorcycle jacket this side of James Dean.
