The physical act of traveling, sadly, is no longer the classy event it used to be. Nostalgic traveling is always something very special, at very least for the inherent romance, but mostly for the nearly-extinct ability to travel stylishly. Read more
Yesterday, we introduced a number of new and upcoming brands right from MRket in New York (Click here for MRket brands, Part II and Part III). Today, we want to discuss a few more outfits we saw at MRket.
While most men at Pitti Uomo tried to top one another with the sheer number of details they wore, Robert Brenner from Ben Silver is much more subdued. From afar, his outfit looks classic and unique, yet not overdone. Once you take a closer look, you will notice that he actually wore four different patterns mixed in this outfit. The yellow of the tie goes well with the acetate glasses and the blue of the shirt is very similar to the gingham pocket square.
This lady not only had a special hair style, but also a beautiful smile.
I liked the details on this jersey-like polo shirt with a deep contrasting neck line, a slitted chest pocket and the lack of a collar. The hat and the bag complement his casual summer look
Stylish even during her break.
Southern Style by State Traditions.
Spectator derby shoes worn with shorts – and without socks.
This young gentleman cut a splendid figure in his blazer. When I met him for the first time, I noticed immediately that his blazer was tailored by Sciamat just by looking at his lapels and his sleevehead. I find it interesting that often, little details like the way a buttonhole is cut, will allow you to pinpoint the area where the coat was made and sometimes even the exact manufacturer. What suit / sportscoat manufacturer can you recognize immediately by its details and what are these?
This gentleman at Duchamp was dressed in a classic navy plain suit with slanted pockets, light blue shirt with a strong cutaway collar, purple tie and colorful pocket square.
Old School style @ Scott Millar shirts from Canada.
Since it was summer, quite a number of men dressed in white and khaki, just like this gentleman who was browsing through the brands exhibiting at MRket.
Michael Whitby-Grubb from Penrose in London is anything but generic. In this outfit, he wore a black straw Bowler hat with a little flower in the hatband and his buttonhole. His purple-orange dotted tie worked with his lavender-pink pocket square and purple strap for his glasses. The yellow of his wrist watch gives a nice contrast to the outfit, though I feel that his cuff is overexposed.
The iPad was omnipresent at Mrket, and sometimes even that wasn’t enough, as we can see here with the representative from Messori.
Fellow MRket blogger Guerre.
I found this shirt quite interesting, since it had not only a club collar but also a contrasting pocket with a pocket square. What do you think of this style?
Chalk Stripe Suit paired with Madras tie and wristband as seen at the Breuer booth.
Just like with the Sciamat suit, I could immediately tell that this suit was tailored by Chester Barrie for Ralph Lauren Purple label, not only because I own one myself but also because it had a very specific lapel style. In my opinion, this outfit has great detail. First of all, brown windowpane suits are great, and paired with the right accessories they are really special. The color coordination between the boutonniere, pocket square and tie is very tasteful because it all harmonizes without matching perfectly. The orange tie has a light blue stripe and the pocket square has a pale yellow and baby blue. Well done, wouldn’t you agree?
This man was a representative of Beams in Japan.
