MENSWEAR MONDAY: COSTUME NATIONAL

Though it’s been a regular menswear love fest here at Stylesightings, there’s always room for more! Today’s edition of Menswear Monday features Costume National’s relaxed yet urban Spring/Summer ’08 collection, which was all about playing with proportions. Super long sweaters, enormous V-necks and hand-covering shirt cuffs pushed the boundaries of menswear and made the models’ bodies look even longer and leaner (a feat in and of itself). Check back later today for a taste of my trip to the Hamptons, and don’t forget to click ‘more!’
GREY SUIT

American Apparel’s Deep-V: you’re excellent, but consider yourself one-upped!

Sleeves that cover my hands always make me feel cozy and protected, so of course I’m into these button downs.

THAI PANTS

Apparently, Ennio Capasa and I share a love for Thai fisherman pants, the difference being that I wear mine around the house incessantly and he puts them on the runway and says he designed them.

DEEPV SWEATER

I can’t see many boys doing this with their ties, but I do like it. Also, sheer material yet again!

BLUE SUIT

How many movies feature a guy who, in a desperate search for a suit, ends up with a powder blue number and thinks he looks awful but still manages to get the girl? Lots. I’ve always loved those dreaded suits, and this one is no exception.

TURBAN

Wait…is that…yes! It’s actually a turban! We have kind of an unofficial turban watch going on here at Stylesight, so this is just thrilling.

PUFFY SHIRT

When I saw this, my first thought was “the Puffy Shirt episode!” Somewhere in L.A., Jerry Seinfeld is smiling his gigantic big-toothed smile.

Super skinny ties will always scream ‘Hedi Slimane’ to me, but the length sets these apart.

    so, anyone who is not ready for hairam-hammertime pants and are accepting of the turban (particularly on a man!?!) are beyond me. i for one am not ready for the man-turban. whoa.

  • the man turban. murban? does a turban know gender? i’m not ready either. xo

  • i am loving this grey color some of the designers are doing. Also like the deep v neck shirts, and the longer sleeves. And long super skinny ties are a favorite of mine.
