SARTORIAL SPY
New York: Best known for his topnotch three-piece suits and other dapper essentials that never fail to project a degree of refinement, Simon Spurr was inspired by the genre of Cold War spy classics like Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. Allover offbeat chevron motifs thrown onto some exceptionally tailored pieces made a bold statement about the evolution of classic menswear, while a selection of cropped pea coats, pieced overcoats and gutsy sweaters re-confirmed the influence young designers like him are having on the Savile Row scene. The brand’s consistent fusion of military and Mod always make for one of the most masculine showings of the week, and this season was no different.   —Michael Fisher
