G entlemen’s fashion has historically transitioned into sharp suits for fall, with tailoring and fabrics that recall another era. Modern threads borrow from this nostalgic influence and translate the finery into current looks. Mixing elements such as hoodies with button-downs and ties relaxes a boring suit but retains integrity. Same goes for wearing well-tailored suits with tricked-out tennis shoes. This month’s fashion was shot in a beautiful vintage car garage with the most alluring heavy-metal beauties. We paired the cars with styles that knock the starch out of stuffy men’s suiting but still have enough strength for today’s well-dressed man.
Stay on track with this elegant but casual shirt and tie combo. The 1961 red Corvette is begging for it.
