No group of people get flair and elegance better than our friends the Italians. And there aren’t many suiting lines more italiano than Canali. This season, they amped things up with bold, head-turning colors—pink, magenta, royal purple—and cranked out blazer after blazer with not one, or two, but five buttons. And for the more traditional guys out there, they kept things simple with beautiful powdery-gray, two-button suits that just about any guy can look chic in.
Designer Italo Zucchelli continues to explore what it means to be designing in the 21st century. The feel this season is sporty and relaxed, with full-cut, reverse-pleated pants and Dolph Lundgren-y, bicep-revealing (ck) shirts, all accented by a white and gray color scheme that meets electric yellows and seafoam greens on the other side of the spectrum.
Armani opened everyone’s eyes back in the ’90s when he snipped the shoulder pads out of his suits and created a softer shape in his jackets. This season, he’s exploring that breakthrough again—in his usual palette of navy and gray and white and black—while sticking to his vision that a man can look well-dressed and casual at the same time.
Warm-weather prep gets haute. Tommy’s boys are always sophisticated but have rarely looked as forward-thinking as this year. Hilfiger partners once again with young gun Simon Spurr to meld Cape Cod staples with sleek silhouettes and saturated, high-voltage colors. Tops on our list is the array of many-hued, iridescent camo, splayed across shorts, shirts, and jackets alike, as well as a slimmed-down, positively pop-art take on the varsity jacket (not to mention the funky lapeled varsity-cum-suit jacket), proving that one of the reigning kings of prep can still out-innovate the field at its own game.
Splashes of unlikely color peeked out at J.Crew’s presentation—orange striped sweaters, lemon-colored oxford shirts, chartreuse shorts, Pollock-esque paint-splattered shorts—throwing a few twists into this otherwise dependably smart collection for the modern man. Lightweight suits, suede deck shoes, and sea-ready outerwear were the highlights, proving once again that Frank Muytjens and Co. see the warmer months with clarity.
This go-around, DKNY took over the NASDAQ building in Times Square. Fret not: The clothes were anything but floppy Wall Streeter get-ups. In front of scrolling stock tickers and megatron ads, young guns stood at attention in crisp, tailored suits that were often pinstriped and nearly always in shades of gray. Others were geared up for the storm that raged outside: Steve McQueen-channeling trenches, zip-collar anoraks, and rain-ready, white-soled boots. Last but not least, there were some dudes in Teva-like sandals. Yep, those could be making a comeback.
