Several weeks ago I posted a blog with a reader’s question about men’s summer fashion. I really am working on an answer to that question but clients, Michelle Obama on “The View”, the European men’s Spring 09 collections and interviews with USA Today and Women’s Wear Daily are all conspiring against me in answering that question.
(Besides, I’m concerned that Hungry Z might eat my blog entry.)
So until I get to answering the specific question I was asked, I thought I’d give you a couple of links that you might find helpful in figuring out how to look cool. As I mentioned, the major European designers just showed their collections for Spring 09. These shows always coincide with the 50-60% off sales here in the good ol’ USA on this season’s merchandise.
One of my favorite games to play is to look at what will be in for spring and summer next year and then use that as a guide when I’m sorting through the sale merchandise now. That way I can buy next year’s look now and at a deep discount to boot.
Below you will find a link to my pick for the best/most influential men’s collection from 1) Milan and 2) Paris as well a link to 3) The Sartorialist’s picks of the best dressed men who were attending the shows. Personally, I always find those pictures to be a real treat. Click on each link below for a slideshow.
For the Sartorialist, you will need to scroll down on the right hand side, as the pictures run vertically. You can also click on pictrues and dates other than the one I picked for you.
I hope you all find this useful and that it keeps you, um, hungry (for more men’s fashion tips to come).
