J.Crew Men’s Fall 2016 – Runway Review
February 15, 2016
In the men’s collection, designer Frank Muytjens remained close to the brand’s roots. By taking traditional men’s wear cues and simply updating them with new proportions and textures, the results worked well and should resonate with both the trendy and conservative. To wit, an alpaca sweater worn over double-pleated tweed pants and a patchwork silk neck scarf was at once youthful and mature. Another standpoint was an oversized deconstructed herringbone topcoat worn with rolled-up brown corduroy baggy pants for a vintage feel. The use of pajama references and a few athletic touches helped reinforce the overall leisure vibe of the collection.
