The concept behind British fashion designer Andrew Buckler's line of menswear — "English bloke meets New York" — doesn't mean throwing on a pair of brogues with a black leather jacket. Buckler's approach is all about taking traditional men's clothing and tweaking it with a subtle urban edge to create undeniably stylish new pieces that are just a bit off-kilter. Chambray polo shirts with asymmetrical front snap closures, knitwear emblazoned with distinctive graphic prints, and cheeky short-sleeve, wool-knit waistcoats and sweaters reveal a sly sense of humor. And his underwear line, Sexy Bastard? Well, the name speaks for itself. But Buckler also designs all your favorite staples, from basic straight-leg jeans to straightforward hoodies in basic black.
Buckler—“Made in America for Blokes”—takes traditionally English fashion forms and gives them a shot of upstart American flair. Here the brand tackles a selection of shirts, sweaters, and denim, and filters it all through its Old–meets–New World sensibility.
Relaxed, distressed, raw, washed, skinny, dark, light and lovely, you'll find practically an entire genome of jeans here. So no matter if your preference is Tavertini So's exquisitely treated straight leg jeans or a substantially skinnier pair from Buckler, we've got you — or at least your lower half — covered.
From 3.1 Philip Lim's avant-garde orange utility pants to the blazers and shirts of Y's Yohji Yamamoto, this massive final sale runs the gamut from cutting edge to classic, from formal to casual and from cashmere to cotton to wool.
Plaid, like drink, is good in moderation. Don't do any tomfool thing like wearing all these plaids together but do carefully apportion out these bright examples of plaid at its best. From Steven Alan's famous plaid shirts to a deep green seersucker plaid blazer from Tailor Vintage to plaid sneakers courtesy of Simple, this is a primer in plaid, a thesis on checks. Study it well and wear it better.
