Dad’s Style 101

fe_illustration_11One of our favorite culture podcasters, Jesse Thorn, is a menswear buff. We listen to him, we trust him and we like when he gets excited about stuff and feels the urge to share.

Here’s Thorn enthusing about the concept of dad’s style, which you don’t need to be a father to appreciate, and Japanese magazine Free & Easywhich, if you’re unfamiliar, read Josh Peskowitz’s primer article for Ralph Lauren’s website.

The dad’s style issue of Free & Easy is an annual thing. The next one comes out in February.

Our Men’s Fashion Office is wrapping its time in NYC for the inaugural New York Fashion Week: Men’s, heading home after a week of scoping spring/summer 2016 styles.

For #NYFWM, the award on our squad for incurring the most street-style photography goes to Men’s Styling Manager Danny Mankin–which, again, we’re not surprised. And the award for clarity in a hectic situation goes to Men’s Fashion Director Jorge Valls.

Jorge saw two main style thrusts #NYFWM: loose luxury and 1990s-inspired streetwear. You can safely say these will define the clothes you see in retailers next spring, or at least be heavy influences. Here he is talking about both.

Check out Jorge’s take on four different shows during #NYFWM and explanation of the two main types of events here. Check him talking about the economic power of the whole thing here. Fashion can be a baffler, but when Jorge explains it to us, we get it.

Our Men’s Fashion Office is all up in the mix at New York Fashion Week: Men’s, and the most photographed member of the team by far is Danny Mankin, Men’s Styling Manager. Which does not surprise us. Everyone’s looking good here, but that excellent fit you see above is pretty much a regular Tuesday for Danny.

Being bombarded with style is exciting but can overwhelm, so to get our minds right, we’ve been enjoying post-show breakdowns with our Men’s Fashion Director Jorge Valls.

Here’s Jorge on the difference between runway shows and designer presentations (#NYFWM has both) and the events & spring/summer 2016 collections by Suit Supply, rag + bone, Todd Snyder and Michael Bastian.
