Michael Bastian : Fall 2015 ///

Michael Bastian Fall 2015 | GregoryWest

I loved Michael Bastian‘s Fall 2014 collection for its buttoned-up steely-greys worthy of a crisp Manhattan day. The love continues a year later for a new lineup infused with upstate ruggedness in deep, rich navies and earth tones. Here are a few of my favourites, including those genius streamlined cargos.

Tom Ford : Fall 2015 ///

Tom Ford (Fall 2015) | GregoryWest

An interesting thing happens at the end of certain fashion shows, once all the perfectly put-together models have left the runway – the lead designer emerges, all slouchy and disheveled, as if they just finished delivering the morning’s coffee order. Well, I don’t think I’ve ever seen Tom Ford in one of these Great and Powerful Oz moments. His game is so strong, he’s the living, breathing embodiment of his impeccable brand. Here are a few of my favourites from his Fall 2015 collection, including some impeccably-tailored classic coats. (via


Dsquared² : Fall 2015 ///

Dsquared² (Fall 2015) | GregoryWest

A peacoat that looks as good mid-town as the mid-Atlantic, a military-inspired overcoat with a big dose of fur-lined warmth, one of the most perfect leather jackets I’ve ever seen, and Dean & Dan’s usual dash of Canadiana – some of my favourites from the Dsquared² Fall 2015 collection. (via


Michael Kors : Fall 2015 ///

Michael Kors Fall 2015 | GregoryWest

Impeccable double-breasted, a perfectly-proportioned tweed/camo insulated field jacket, and a cardigan crisp enough to look great with a tie – here are a few of my favourites from the Michael Kors Fall 2015 collection. (via


Dolce & Gabbana : Spring 2015 ///

Dolce & Gabbana Spring / Summer 2015 | GregoryWest

As the next few weeks bring along several more occasions to get all dappered up, I wouldn’t mind getting early access to the Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2015 collection. Have a look at these alternate takes on traditional formalwear – a perfectly slim three-piece with a unique vest, all-over polka dot that’s all grown up, and razor-sharp double-breasted … not to mention those impeccable shirt collars that look like fresh-cut stationery. All great reasons to start RSVPing like mad. (via GQ)


Dries Van Noten : Spring 2015 ///

It’s quite common to see elements of masculine wardrobe incorporated into a women’s collection, but the reverse is much more rare. And so, I ended up really liking the Dries Van Noten Spring / Summer 2015 runway for incorporating suits with softer and more flowing cuts, shoes with a hint of Mary Jane, and shirts with several alternate takes on the male neckline. In each case, just the right amount of feminine influence to make a difference, without distracting from the overall look. Here are a few of my favourites. (via GQ)


Giorgio Armani : Spring 2015 ///

A beautiful palette of subtle colours and  trim tailoring with just a hint of extra room that nudges you to sit back, relax, and stay just a bit longer at that outdoor table with a stunning view (once the weather starts warming up again). Here are my favourites from the Giorgio Armani Spring/Summer 2015 collection. (via GQ)


Engineered Garments : Spring 2015 ///

There’s different for the sake of simply being different, and then there’s different that makes you stop and take notice because … it’s actually really good. I’m loving the Engineered Garments Spring/Summer 2015 collection, and the way it combines classic elements into new, unique arrangements and patterns. It’s that perfect scenario of seeing something on the runway that you’ve never considered wearing before, and thinking that you can’t wait to try it on yourself. (via Highsnobiety)

If you’re already familiar with Jack Spade’s excellent range of bags and briefcases, I recommend taking another look at the label, starting with the Fall 2014 collection, featuring brilliant modern tailoring … and some great looking bags, of course. (via GQ)


Michael Bastian : Fall 2014 ///

I always love seeing a new Michael Bastian collection, and Fall 2014 is no exception – brilliant tweedy fabrics, perfect proportions, and great little pops of colour to set you apart from winter’s huddling masses. Here are a few of my favourites. (via GQ)
