The 13 Best Looks from New York Fashion Week: Men’s

The four day spectacle that is New York Fashion Week: Men’s concluded on a high note this week, with Raf Simons delivering his beautiful ode to New York. The Fall 20017 men’s shows in New York conclude the month-long marathon of men’s presentations across London, Milan, Florence, and Paris. While Europe saw a strong return to the 70s, New York designers are still finding their inspiration in the street. Wearable and easy separates dominated the runways, and outerwear had a huge moment – dusters and bombers both cropped up on the runways. Up-and-comers like Woodhouse made their mark, and the peacocks rocked fur coats amid a few light flurries. Here, W‘s favorite looks from the past week.


Billy Reid brought his famous ‘shin-dig’ from the South to New York for his men’s show, which featured great knits, loose-fitting pants, and a casting that embraced men of all ages.


Boss showed their latest collection in New York, a first in nearly a decade. Pieces more interesting than classic suiting held the spotlight, including this leather lace-up pullover jacket.


John Elliot’s elevated take on the track pant is a welcomed alternative that we have been missing.


The Orley trio have rightfully earned their place as on of the best men’s sweater labels. Each season they add thoughtful ready-to-wear pieces to their repertoire, and this flannel suit for fall was a stand-out.


Leopard on men? Why not. The muted print was a surprising and interesting touch at Ovadia & Sons’ show.


The three-seasons-old Palmier du Mal played with silky textures in their pajama shirts, and paired them with a devisive autumnal fabric–corduroy. Here, it worked.


Patrick Ervell seems to understand very well what his customers want, from a logo-less refined take on a starter jacket to classic, beautiful knits.


Raf Simons electrified New York Fashion Week: Men’s with an ode to his new city.


All separates seem to be more relaxed this season, and the same can be said about Robert Geller’s finale looks. He was one of at least three designers at New York Fashion Week: Men’s to cover or obscure part of his models’ faces. For warmth or just for show, we’ll never know.


Rochambeau’s collection took a hint from Eighties post-punk music, but the slogan on one of their tees, “Stay Alive” felt very much to be a reaction to today’s political climate.


Simon Miller denim is a cult-favorite among fashion folk. Soon too will be their strong outerwear pieces, like this leather jacket with shearling collar.


Thaddeus O’Neil offered a chicer version of his surfer muse this fall, and a blue tweed coat styled casually over an elevated pair of sweatpants was a favorite.


Todd Snyder focused on textures, using velour underneath more classic menswear, like this checked coat.
