Magnificent Mavericks

<< Back to Robb Report, September 2014

    Trailblazing designers push the frontiers of menswear this season with hardy, well-built clothing crafted for the rugged individual who favors durability and comfort—especially when they are harnessed to a bold personal statement. This slightly defiant spirit is expressed in sturdy topcoats, leather jackets, and blazers whose brash lines and daring details emphasize the breadth of the wearer’s shoulders and the slimness of his torso. This fall, whether out on the town for the evening or riding the range at high noon, even the most elegant hombre will find plenty of adventure in his wardrobe.

    Above: Etro double-breasted wool coat, $2,705; Brunello Cucinelli chambray shirt, $550, and leather belt, $380; Robert Graham denim pants, $298; Missoni mohair-and-wool patchwork blanket, $7,075; Versace leather boots, price upon request; David Yurman sterling-silver ring, $695, and turquoise-and-sterling-silver ring, $975.
