AUTUMNAL COMFORT
London: Richard James’ F/W 13 collection eschewed theatrics in favor of a concentration on relaxed wearability and everyday coziness. These were real clothes for real men, from sturdy wool peacoats in shades of evergreen and olive to dark straight-leg denim trousers cut for grown-ups. Marled knit turtlenecks, chunky scarves and beanies provided warmth as well as a touch of youth, while printed silk scarves and pocket squares gave the nod to dapper English eccentricity. Closing on three jewel-toned tuxedos, James maintained the autumnal mood and shifted into evening with comfort by pairing these retro party suits with velvet bedroom slippers.—Nina Stotler
