Upper Cuts

  • Jill Newman

This spring, leading designers pack a sartorial punch with relaxed yet sophisticated menswear that merges elements of sportswear with tailored clothing. Employing superlight and advanced treated fabrics, these fashion heavyweights square off with softly shaped unconstructed jackets and sport coats paired with trimly profiled trousers—ensembles that project the forward-thinking attitude and unrestrained energy of today’s executive. These smart silhouettes, rendered in subtly textured fabrics and a range of pale, dusty hues, prove that even appropriate business attire can have an athletic edge.
