Hours before the show started coming out of Perry Ellis, TIM BLANKS said, “the most important menswear show coming out of New York is Duckie Brown.” It seems most of fashion’s heavy hitters are in agreement, there was Michael Roberts from Vanity Fair sitting front row
THE VIBE – EDGY, in a slouchy way.

HAIR & MAEKUP - the pompadours and scowling expressions added to the edgy vibe.


There’s as usual a compelling mix between the unexptected like some day glow lemon yellow knee pants followed by a well cut gray suit

TREND – Although it looked like at first glance, there would be primarily black, there was a predominance of gray.

FUN ACCESSORIES – the Florscheims, the 1/2 gloves – maybe they were driving gloves?
BASICS: the hooded shirt/anoraks you could wear with just about anything, the glenplaid or solid gray suit with a slightly wrinkled jacket.

The boy shorts. It may not be for everyone, but we know that there are edgy guys out there who can pull it off.
