One of the menswear style trends emerging prominently for fall is the pairing of elegant sartorial pieces with casual street wear. Among those who have embraced this relaxed look is Antonio De Matteis, CEO of Kiton (kiton.it). “The hooded sweater is replacing the more traditional V-neck or crewneck sweater,” he says. “It gives a very elegant outfit a sportive look.” The style is exemplified by this Kiton ensemble that combines a finely tailored cashmere sport coat ($7,950), a cotton shirt ($595), and a silk pocket square ($215) with a lightweight cashmere-and-silk hooded sweater ($2,950).
