#1108 - Layers, patch pockets, tortured artists and the colour green - my picks of the week from New York


Rag and Bone - What better way to keep warm than wearing your entire winter wardrobe in one go?


Timo Weiland - If you're only going to buy one heavy green suit this winter...


Richard Chai - Because sometimes you just want to dress like a mechanic from the Bronx, but in really, really luxurious fabrics.


Patrik Ervell - Like I said, blazers that button all the way up are my new obsession. Leave the top and bottom buttons undone and you're good to go. And three cheers for the patch pocket - jets are for sissies.




Marc by Marc Jacobs - Nothing screams 'tortured artist' like overcoats, full-volume pants, delicate knitwear and Shakespeare-era hair.


J Sabatino - Denim pants, check. Suspenders, check. German expressionist sunglasses, check check check.


Generra - I want to say it's the green, or the pyjama-chic shirt and cardigan twin set, but really, I just like it how his hat kinda looks like a condom.


Duckie Brown - Chanel made a killing flogging boucle suits to wealthy ladies, why can't the same principle work for menswear? Only in mismatched colours and teddy-boy shapes.


Thom Browne - Who needs models when you look this good in your own clothes?

I LIKE YOU!
