Fashion Week for us here at TDO has always been about picking our favorite looks, prettiest dresses and spring trends for women (after all, that is what we obsess about!) This year, however, we attended a few shows that showcased the look for men. So whether you just want to be in the know, or help style your favorite guy, check out some of the looks below for what’s happening next season.

Sharp tailoring for the urban male in standby colors (heather, black, navy and camel) with interesting details: a tassel hangs from a pocket, black feathers peek out underneath a blazer, leather sleeves on an overcoat, striped rhinestones on a jacket, and metallic pinstripes on smart suits.
Ties were sparse with most suits paired with a v-neck, henley or buttoned up shirt underneath. Fearless mixing and matching include hoodies, fisherman’s sweaters, circle scarves and fingerless gloves, chunky knits Double-breasted jackets shined. Most looks were pared with shiny lace-ups or combat boots.
In a grand spectacle, Moncler showcased the Grenoble F/W 2011 collection in the Grand Central Terminal. Smushed into the rafters, guests and press sipped champagne and waited for what would happen down below. Models came out in ski-outfits, including goggles, and stood in a grid while the crowd – confused commuters – was cleared to the sides. The vibe was young, flash mob-y, and reminiscent of a 1995 GAP ad. The clothes featured a sea of vibrant yellows and punchy burgundies, sheep skin accents tweedy fabrics fashioned into parkas and overalls. The biggest take away? Contrast greys with flamboyant pops of color.
