Classic style for men has never looked as good as it does this fall. Menswear this season is well-bred and timeless: get-it-together clothes that come across as easy, uncontrived, and comfortable, because the man inside is. It’s a look that’s uniquely American, even when the designer label is not, with many designers from abroad paying homage to this side of the Atlantic. The results? A classy wardrobe that’s an international blend of rich, investnient-level fabrics and exquisite tailoring, with the relaxed silhouette and spirited style of stand-out American sportswear.
