Fashion Week Pt III

Fashion Week Pt III


For the third and final round of mens photos from my time at Fashion Week and Nautica mens SS 2012 show last Friday I have decided to focus on things above the waist.  As always, enjoy liberally.

Varsity and club jackets are on the rise. This is Brian, one of the models from the Nautica show once he changed into his street clothes. The jacket was his grandfathers, badass.
Spotted this gent at the Nautica SS presentation. As a note I am of the opinion that when wearing a 3-button jacket the middle button should be the first one buttoned and then the top when buttoning two, but never the bottom button. Aside from that, such a well executed look.
When done well, broaches add a nice touch. Most of us could not wear this one, but this guy can. Also take into account the mandarin collared pleated dress shirt and the peak lapels.
The sunglasses are sick. On the tie, its certainly one way to do it... Like the broach above this wouldn't work for most of us, like 98% of us to be more exact, but this guy wears it well.
This check pattern of this jacket is awesome. A great summer jacket no doubt. I am not a huge fan of the elbow patch in this case. But I will tell you this, I have a feeling you will be seeing an increasing number of jackets with elbow patches in the coming seasons.
A classic look courtesy of one of the models in the Nautica SS 2010 show, Brittain. It should be noted that this photo was taken of him after he changed into his street clothes.
