Pattern-Mixing for the Modern Gentleman

October 16th, 2015

With our F/W 2015 Collection, I wanted to make it as easy as possible for our first clients to build stylish wardrobes that will last the test of time.

Therefore, I stuck to classic menswear patterns that are subtle enough to pair together and purposely varied in size, scale, proportion, and depth. The goal was to create a collection in which every garment could be interchanged, allowing our clients to get the most out of their wardrobe investments and feel confidently prepared for any occasion.

Our fabrics are so carefully hand-picked that our clients can get dressed in the dark and look like style experts who’ve mastered the art of pairing colors, textures and patterns together. It’s really hard to miss when you stay within the collection, and it will be even easier when we launch our collection of neckwear designed to be paired with all of our shirts, jackets and outerwear.

To prove this concept, my long-time friend Kai Mucktar-Barnes, an icon on the streets of the Lower East Side, shows us how smooth and easy it can be to wear five patterns at once.

      Five patterns that’s really a lot, but still with the trousers you could add a 6th… It’s a really genius idea for a collection, especially when you’re adding the ties… I don’t know that others really do that.

      5 Pattern mixing… High degree of difficulty…. these looks nail it though, but most guys could take a couple of cues from this and try it with 2-3 patterns/textures…

      Great shots!
