New York Mens Fashion Week kicks off with a band of rising talent that we loved. The pacesetting details, defying norms and bringing the beach to us were all executed fetes of Monday's showing designers. See full schedule here.

David Hart

Rising designer and CFDA Fund finalist (2015) David Hart impressed us with his day/evening combination. We especially loved the palm printed evening blazers paired with solid colored day-linen shorts. They were sort of of cali-style meets red-carpet-young-actor. We think this collection has potential to be celebrity driven.

Private Policy

For the 2nd collection from Private Policy, we have to say that they have got our  attention. We love the innovation behind their presentations and look forward to future seasons' collections.

Max N' Chester

Cool, calm, blue and white stripes, designer Peter Trainor manages to give off a nautical/heritage feel at the Max N' Chester presentation. The models reflected what we believe to be an amazing array of what cool trendsetters are like. We fell in love with Max N' Chester's mix of modern meets japanese heritage, color palette and textile choices.
