Made In The U.S.A.

— Thu, 7th August 2008 —

Men.Style has published its fall trend report, which lays out three leading looks for the season: Eurotrash, Utilitarian, and “Trad” or Traditional. The first should, and will, be ignored.

The second, under the headline “New Labor,” is all about clean/classic American work gear embodied by new lines from Stüssy, Splendid Mills, Gilded Age, Oliver Spencer, Stetson, and just about any independent label featured in A Continuous Lean. Each feature is loaded with valuable insights and picks, be we couldn’t help breaking out a few of them here:

Blazer, $200–$250, shirt, $150, and pants, $150–$200, Save Khaki, 254 Broome St. 212-614-7283

J.Crew black watch plaid jacket for $595; Adam Kimmel flannel shirt for $500 at Berdorfs; Michael Bastian jeans for $490; Red Wing boots for $240 at Opening Ceremony

Stüssy plaid jacket for $330 at Bloomies; Splendid Mills waffle polo for $104; Gilded Age Gotham straight-leg jeans for $368 at Barneys; Oliver Spencer leather Warwick boots for $667 at Odin; Stetson cashmere hat for $99

Steven Alan waxed-cotton rain slicker for $395; Woolrich Woolen Mills cord pants for $245; Church’s Tancredi boot for $565 at Church’s NYC – 212-221-4540

, the third major look for the fall, is pretty self explanatory, but still might come as a revelation to some guys. Again, here’s a taste:

Anglo American glasses for about $180

Tommy Hilfiger, Fall 2008

Filippa K denim pants for $225 at Oak; limited-edition Gant oxford button-down created by Jeffrey Kalinsky for $195; Tommy Hilfiger Chelsea boots for $350
