The Gilded Age Fall/Winter 2015 menswear collection combines the style aesthetics of WWII and cinema. With ‘waterfront’ as the inspirational theme, the collection explores some of the looks we have come to love over the years in movies such as “From Here to Eternity” with the rugged aviation looks from the war era.
There are Gilded Age heathered knit hats, NYC vintage police jackets, destroyed salvage jeans, stretch twill woven shirts and double faded stretch twill pants, which offer up the styles and visual images that remind us of John F. Kennedy and his airmen buddies. There are interesting fabrics such as air thin gauzy double layer woven shirts, chunky cashmere blends and dark chambray. Also denims are unique with Japanese double face backed with chambray.
The color palette too reminds us of an era gone by but inspired by its style with khakis, browns, greys, blacks and plaids. Styles are accessorized with lots of vintage leather that adds authenticity to the theme inspiration with wingtip boots, buckle belts and over-sized duffle bags.
