The New Arrivals Hit Listing

Pointy Shirts

For years, each button-up you’d see within the pages of GQ (or on the backs of GQ staffers) was outfitted with the identical kind of collar: a trim semi-spread designed to sync up with a slim, dimpled tie. Neglect ’em. Go large and pointy and by no means look again.

Exaggerated-Collar Cotton-Sateen Shirt

Drop-High Hikers

“Rasmus” Grained-Leather-based Boots

Shirt Jackets With Some Juice

A number of weeks earlier than that, we spotlighted a grip of blue-chip floral-printed items even van Gogh could be happy with. See the place we’re going right here?

Dig the MA-1? Strive the MA-Many

Because it was first issued to pilots throughout WWI, the MA-1 has inserted itself into numerous Hollywood moments—and impressed simply as many designer riffs. Some take the supply materials actually—Jerry Lorenzo upgrades the model in a lustrous nylon however leaves the silhouette intact—whereas others, just like the lesser-known Antwerp Six member Marina Yee, subvert its army pedigree with a jolt of the weird. The MA-1’s sustained recognition amongst civilians and A-listers alike may be a contented byproduct of its utilitarian design, however the true crux of its enchantment is fairly easy: its cropped, boxy silhouette simply seems actually scorching on everybody.

Plucky Pinstripes

Individuals who wore pinstripes used to fall into two camps: Yankees (of the New York selection) and Gordon Gekko wannabes (additionally of the New York selection). You do not have to be both to tug off the cold-weather sample as we speak—hell, you do not even want to purchase a go well with. Due to manufacturers like Portugal’s Ernest W. Baker, the tailoring flourish seems decidedly extra chill as an identical jacket-and-trousers set. If the menswear classicist in you is crying blasphemy, do not get your costume socks in a twist: Madewell’s slouchy, Italian-sourced riff will take to a tie and derbies simply as simply as it’s going to loafers and a classic tee.

Black and Brown

For many years, typical menswear knowledge stipulated that black and brown had been opposing colours that ought to by no means be combined. The standard knowledge, as we identified a few years in the past, was incorrect. Carrying the 2 shades concurrently is not a faux-pas—it is the quickest solution to ratchet up the style quotient in your fall outfits. Pair Carhartt WIP’s groovy paisley cardigan with black work pants and a white T-shirt, or tuck that very same tee into Stein’s cashmere-blend trousers, gird your waist with a brash belt, and toss a sweater round your shoulders for a bit additional verve.


“Ace” Striped Cotton Shirt

Tweedy Coats

Means again in 2020, GQ’s Sam Schube introduced irrefutable proof in favor of two unlikely menswear icons: the Moist Bandits, a.ok.a. Marv and Harry of House Alone fame. Each, Schube writes, are impeccably outfitted in garments that would not look out of a spot in a Drake’s marketing campaign, or a grainy {photograph} of the Olsen twins ripping darts downtown. The key to their sauce? Nubby mac coats precisely like these, minimize relaxed, normally with raglan sleeves, and achieved up in texture-heavy fall tweeds. For a really British riff on the model look to Sir Paul Smith—nevertheless it’s robust to beat all-American mainstays like Banana Republic.

Electrical Argyles

Argyle was once the protect of misty-eyed teachers or the kind of pencil-pushers who pronounce the ‘h’ in white. Today, the sample nonetheless adorns loads of sweaters, however its perspective is extra punk than preppy (suppose shaggy mohair polos or outsized crewnecks within the good shade of scuzzy greige). The one outlier right here? Bottega Veneta, the place Matthieu Blazy and his group of material wizards render a basic V-neck silhouette in impossibly supple calfskin, an ideal leather-based jacket for the gerontocracy—or the cool children who can afford to jack their model.

Shadow Play

Chalk it as much as the waning daylight or the mercurial climate, however shadows (and gradients, their not-so-distant family) are exhibiting up interpreted by way of all types of prints and patterns. From the basic shadow plaid Noah incorporates in its good-looking 5-panel hat to the spray-paint impact on Zits Studios’ slip-on boots, fall menswear seems broodier than an Alan Moore strip—and we’re able to embrace the darkish facet.

In case you don’t wish to take our phrase for it, take it from Anthony Vacarrello, whose sultry reinterpretations of Saint Laurent’s home codes are finest expressed by way of the maison’s gossamer-like shirting.

Not-So-Burly Rugby Shirts

The rugby shirt has been round in a single kind or one other for the reason that 1800s, when thick-necked Britons popularized the model chasing round a wee leather-based ball on the pitch. (Okay, you bought us: we’ve by no means watched a sport of rugby earlier than.) The purpose is, the beefy cotton polo—outlined by its distinction collar and broad stripes—was designed to take a beating, and it’s lingered within the menswear consciousness for that actual purpose. The rugbys we’ve gravitated in direction of just lately, although, are a tad extra refined. Noah’s skews fairly near the supply materials, however ditches the eye-grabbing chest stripes in favor of a muted fall palette; Studio Nicholson’s retains the distinction collar, however renders the remainder of the physique in a premium cotton-wool mix. The end result, nonetheless, is similar: a ridiculously versatile pullover you’ll put on from now till the warmth ratchets as much as a sizzle once more.

Toasted Suedes

Fall’s distinct colours and textures aren’t restricted to foliage.

Thoughts-Bending Equipment

Half a century after her loss of life, surrealist designer Elsa Schiaparelli’s legacy lives on due to guys like Jonathan Anderson and the Japanese humorists at Doublet. Frog clutches, pastry-inspired pochettes, whale hats—it is all a bit foolish. And that is the purpose!

Pumped-Up Kicks

Chalk it as much as a collective craving for a couple of added inches or nostalgia for the high-energy model of the early-2000s, however inflated footwear is clomping off the cabinets at a report clip. From an elephantine tackle the Vans Outdated Skool to padded slides from trend’s favourite ghoul, Rick Owens, pumped-up kicks are the quickest solution to make an enormous assertion this season.

Large, Billowy Shorts

For so long as we are able to keep in mind, consensus amongst menswear lovers dictated that shorts ought to hit roughly mid-thigh, courtesy of a tastefully scant five-inch inseam. In 2023, although, all bets are off: as we speak’s shorts du jour are, effectively, any size, actually. However the shorts we’re feeling most proper now are large, dishevelled, and lengthy, an apparent byproduct of our collective nostalgia for Y2K-era model. Freaky avant-gardists like Rick Owens are main the cost, however Commas’ gently-tailored half-pants are proof that big shorts deserve a spot in your trip moodboard, whether or not you’re clubbing in Berlin or lounging in Bilbao.

Blaze Up

Put on a blazer at any level between June and September, and also you’re most likely going to sweat. (Additional layers + blistering solar = most shvitz. It’s math, actually!) The important thing then, is to decide on your blazer fastidiously—keep on with breezy materials, ditch the stuffy underpinnings, and hold the silhouette relaxed and a bit slouchy. The subsequent time event dictates you put on a capital-J Jacket, attain for one like Todd Snyder’s, a imaginative and prescient of creamy linen achieved up in a gloriously ‘80s double-breasted silhouette—or higher but, make just like the steezy Venetians at Barena, whose gauzy plaid joint feels lighter than most summer time button-ups.

The Camp Shirt Sobers Up

For longer than we care to recollect, the camp shirt has been on a delirious bender. (Did we assist allow its hard-partying methods? Slightly.) Each summer time, the wild-style button-up would roll by to park hangs, rooftop chills, and weekend BBQs using excessive by itself exuberant prints, colours, and patterns—and for a minute there, we had been anxious. However, we’re relieved to report, the rumors of the camp shirt’s decline have been enormously exaggerated. It is not strung out in Ibiza, recovering from the Molly shakes. As a substitute, it took the winter to sober up, get its shit collectively, and re-emerge sleeker, svelter, and a bit extra subdued. In different phrases: It’s lastly rising up.

Banana Republic, no stranger to second probabilities, acknowledges a kindred spirit when it sees one, and the ‘70s sleaze specialists at LA’s Second/Layer show that sobriety doesn’t need to be a buzzkill—once you’re the unequivocal shirt of the summer time, it may be downright attractive.

The venerable British cobblers at Church’s make a model that appears like a detailed relative of your cap-toes, however you don’t need to drop generational guap to get your toes right into a pair: Camper sells a pleasantly brolic riff for lower than 200 bucks.

Get Effusive With the Embroidery

For some time there, you could not swing a canvas tote with out hitting a fella in a graphic tee or logo-emblazoned hoodie. However, on the precipice of what GQ’s been calling a “return to magnificence”, menswear nerds are scoring their visible repair elsewhere—by embroidery. Manufacturers like Karu Analysis, Wales Bonner, and Bode are laborious at work emphasizing the method’s artisanal bent, and embroidery—together with beading and crochet—feels primed to grow to be the aesthetic flourish of the second. Because the dialog round AI continues to freak us all out, a deliberate signal of the human contact is strictly what the physician ordered.

Safe a Bag That Makes a Actual Assertion

As we head into the canine days of summer time, placing collectively a cute lil’ outfit will get more and more tough. (There are solely so many layers you’ll be able to put on with out passing out.) So we’ll clue you in on a secret: the trick to pulling off a really humungous look comes all the way down to the equipment—and an eye catching bag would possibly do the job even higher than a winter coat. We have got no beef with swanky leather-based duffels, however today, we’re digging luggage heavier on the feel. Not solely do they add a ton of character, they do not depend on a corny textual content or a flashy screenprint to convey their message.

SC103’s Hyperlink luggage have been a Cool Lady™ carry-all for some time, and this being the 12 months of our lord 2023, there is not any purpose you’ll be able to’t get in on the motion, too. Harago’s bamboo woven tote is ideal for picnics and seashore days—or simply upgrading your every day driver from that gift-with-purchase tote you have been hauling round for manner too lengthy.

Florals You May Body

Florals for spring? Not precisely groundbreaking. However when the mercury climbs above a balmy 60-ish levels, it doesn’t actually matter—florals simply look proper. Which helps clarify why menswear’s brightest stars return to the print this time yearly, and once you don’t have an imperious trend editor capturing daggers at you throughout the desk, it is a complete lot simpler to take pleasure in them. (Vogue editors we could also be, however the vibes in our conferences are decidedly extra kind-minded, child!) The Toronto-based swimwear junkies at Bather splash a complete rattling bouquet throughout the entrance of their trunks, however for a much less literal riff on the motif look to Brooklyn’s Connor McKnight: his hand-painted work jacket, made in partnership with Gucci, employs its florals sparingly, lending it all of the intrigue of a Braque nonetheless life.

Shirts Are Jackets Now

Layering turns into quite a bit trickier as soon as the temperatures begin to rise. Add to that the unpredictable/unreliable climate and you can catch your self in a local weather that is above your lone A-shirt’s pay grade. Permit us, then to reframe your perspective: in the summertime, shirts are literally simply very gentle jackets. We’re not speaking about overshirts, essentially. Undoubtedly not—gulp—shackets. We imply regular-ass button-up shirts. The trick is to go for one which’s roomy sufficient to permit for some airflow, even one other layer beneath. Toss one over a graphic tee or perhaps a polo so as to add some oomph—and a bit billowy drape—to your outfits.

All Linen The whole lot

Round this time yearly, individuals begin to go a bit bit linen loopy. Which makes good sense: the breezy material naturally lends itself to summer time’s looser silhouettes, and its nubby texture is a good way to pump up the visible curiosity when there’s much less layers to go round. Pulling off head-to-toe linen, although, is type of difficult—put on an excessive amount of off the stuff and also you’ll wind up wanting like a retired yogi. Fortunately, the next-gen suiting consultants at Stòffa have discovered a workaround: deal with the fabric like a secondary function, and let the craftsmanship do the heavy lifting. You realize who else received the memo? Nicholas Daley, the white-hot British wunderkind behind the raddest linen trousers we’ve seen in a minute.

Vancouver’s (!) James Coward would possibly supply the purest expression of the style—the label crafts its impossibly elegant wares from supplies like Japanese moleskin and good ol’ cotton twill—however NYC’s Royce Hill and LA’s Carson Wach make a robust case to maintain the crown stateside.

Jog Like Justin

It’s an excellent outfit—and one it’s best to completely jack this spring. In case you’re cautious of going full Bieber, deal with his get-up much less like instruction and extra like inspiration: begin with a sun-drenched fleece vest from the Japanese repro masters at Visvim and end with Asics’ Gel-NYC footwear, the sportswear juggernaut’s newest bulwark within the ongoing retro sneaker wars. You might most likely clock a couple of brisk miles in the entire get-up with out inspiring too many chuckles, however once you look this recent doesn’t everybody deserve the prospect to ogle you in slow-mo?

Guess USA’s battered leather-based jacket skews extra bomber than letterman, however the chenille patches on the sleeves and the sporty ribbed trims get the purpose throughout simply superb. Add a pair of trefoil-drenched sneakers from Gucci’s monumental tie-up with the Three Stripes, and the gridiron—or, y’know, the Instagram grid—by no means stood an opportunity.
