Leffot x Alden 405C

Leffot x Alden 405C for Fall 2011, Spring 2012

I’m hearing it’s snowing back in New York. Leffot‘s taken stock of these boots from Alden in case the trend continues. The classic 405 design is entirely new, with added traction for slippery surfaces and a lighter weight for added versatility and mobility. The smooth brown cowhide is really outstanding and the lugged soles are good year ’round, rain or shine.

Maison Kitsuné Fall/Winter 2012 Lookbook

Maison Kitsuné Fall/Winter 2012 Men's Collection Lookbook

Maison Kitsuné designer Masaya Kuroki has delivered another exceptional collection. The label’s Fall 2012 collection keeps its Parisian roots in play while blending in some inspiration from the British Tweed Run. As always, special attention is given to the choice of fabrics and the tailoring of the garments through strategic sourcing of factories that still value artisan methods. Timeless wears that are exceptionally designed and well-made.

This collection won’t be hitting shelves for months down the line but I don’t think I can wait that long for the Maison Kitsuné x New Era cap showcased throughout the looks.

Milan Fashion Week | Ermenegildo Zegna Fall/Winter 2012 Show

Ermenegildo Zegna Fall/Winter 2012 Men's Show at Milan Fashion Week

Ermenegildo Zegna showed one of the most wearable collections of this week’s Milan Fashion Week. The Fall 2012 collection is filled with a wide range of pieces, both formal and casual. The world’s finest materials are utilized throughout the line, fabrics we’ve never seen in our lives. The warm knit shown above is one of our favorite pieces but it is far from the only. The colors are inspired by Oasi Zegna, a natural paradise belonging to the family, with various shades of wood brown, hazelnut, snow white, the okra of dry leaves and midnight blue. Blended together they create plaids, checks and chevron patterns, often mixed together to form nonchalant patchworks. The elongated silhouette of suits with two-button, natural-shouldered jackets gains volume in the outerwear featuring blouson and raglan-cut jackets. Also seen are hints of Napa leather and shearling while trousers can be found in faded corduroy Cashco.

Zegna’s fall offerings are surely ones that will be worth the wait. Enjoy more looks courtesy of the Italian label below.
