This Week in Men's Fashion Evolution

So, what direction is men's fashion headed? It's hard to say.

Based on what we've recently seen strutting down Parisian and Milanese runways, this fall, some guys will be brutish, while others will be perfect gentlemen - save for the odd hi-tech corset, or leggings/sandals/kilt (all black) combination. Leather will be everywhere - boots even more so. The (non)colour will be black, and warmth will be provided by shearling and goose-down. In a somewhat contradictory way, we sentimental types will wear ribbed-knits and boxy double-breasted jackets, which, to me are looking more 90's than 80's this season, as well as WWII era military everything (shearling, shearling, shearling). Finally, the turtleneck. The turtleneck will be stylishly polishing adam's apples everywhere EXCEPT ski resorts.

Here are some looks that I found interesting (whether I actually like them or not). Check out the shows at gq.com
