L.B.M. 1911 Fall/Winter 2014:

Filled with subtle checks, navy, and darker muted colors, as is tradition. 

On point, as is tradition.

Siebenpunkt Spring/Summer 2015

This is only my second or third time hearing of this Korean label, and I have to say, I’m insanely into this collection. The outerwear selection is fantastic; if you’re into blousons or double breasted blazers, get familiar. I need to find a shop that carries these guys, so I can grab one of these striped, oxford-esque blouson/safari jackets.

Ikiré Jones: From Sri Lanka… With Love

Wale just got back from a sourcing trip to Sri Lanka, and needless to say, he brought back some pretty fantastic photography. That jacket is absolutely deadly. Head over to the site and read his travel account. 

I can’t wait to see what this trip yields, in terms of product.

Acne Studios Spring/Summer 2015

Damn. Acne really turned it up in the bomber department. Acne is one of those labels that I never really like when it comes to runway looks, but without fail, I find pieces within the collections that blow my mind.

Rose & Born Knit Cotton Offerings:

  • Blouson
  • Jersey Button-Up
  • Polo

I feel as though knit cotton, including pique, is one of the most underutilized fabrics in menswear. It’s weight is extremely versatile, and its sturdiness lends itself beautifully to creating a worn and “lived in” look to a garment with repeated wash and wear. Cotton knits, including long-sleeve shirts and shawl neck pullovers are in constant rotation in my summer wardrobe.

Rose & Born seems to know what’s up, utilizing it in ways other than (and including) the classic short-sleeve polo.

Mr. Porter Seasonal Sale Picks

So as you guys probably know, the Mr. Porter seasonal sale is in full effect, and the legions of menswear nerds are checking their credit card balances and stocking up on ramen. I’ve already snagged a pair of Hartford linen draw string trousers, included on the list below, but I figured I’d put together a little list to show you guys what else I like, because I like you guys (and have nothing better to do with my time). 

I’ve focused on some summer wardrobe building blocks in this list, and I tried to keep the pieces in a reasonable price range. There’s a lot of stuff on sale right now that is still ridiculously expensive. I chose my five favorite pieces that are still (for the most part) approachable in price for each major category. Hopefully this list can inspire a younger menswear enthusiast and help him snag some pieces to get that luxe summer wardrobe started and expanded. Baby steps, grasshopper; baby steps.

Berluti Spring/Summer 2014

The Italian label is really diving into fabrics with a saturated color palette to create some bold contrasts in this expansive collection. I’m also liking the inclusion of some fabrics showing a soft, handmade texture.

Boglioli Spring/Summer 2014:

Boglioli is still my favorite menswear company doing blazers and jackets. Their incredible selection of fabrics, paired with soft tailoring will always be a source of inspiration in my personal wardrobe, regardless of season. In my opinion, no one does a casual jacket better.

I’ve got two Boglioli jackets in my wardrobe right now, and I hope to pick up a few more before I die.

Ikiré Jones S/S ‘14: The Untold Renaissance

Wale absolutely killed it with this one. Having seen these jackets in person, I cannot even begin to describe the gnarliness of these pieces. It’s great to see someone like Wale holding it down for the city of Philadelphia. 

Also, I’ve tried on that belted yellow safari jacket, and I haven’t wanted to wear anything else for S/S since that moment. One of the most incredible lightweight outerwear pieces with which I’ve ever come in contact.

Check out the photos and pieces here.
