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.
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.
Occasionally we'll have a sale that is so comprehensive it defies description. But let’s try, anyway, shall we? Here goes: The Main Event gathers some of our favorite brands, from Acne to McQ to Reiss—not to mention Rogan and Rogue—into one massive sale that could only be called, well, The Main Event.
If you’re looking for menswear that feels hip without trying too hard, Buckler’s shirts, jackets and pants will seem like a breath of fresh air. The dressier duds (especially the long flannel coat and herringbone vest) look British but are all made in the U.S. Buckler excels at casual clothing, too, like these cashmere-cotton striped crewnecks.
