Magnificent Mavericks

<< Back to Robb Report, 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.

The Location

In keeping with the Western mood of our fall fashion essay, we selected the Boulders, a Waldorf Astoria Resort, in Carefree, Ariz., for the location. Situated amid 12-million-year-old rock formations on 1,300 acres in the Sonoran Desert, the famed golf retreat is one of the legacy properties of Laurance S. Rockefeller. For more on the Boulders and Rockefeller’s other timeless creations, see “Living Legends” (click here).
