Give or take a few shows, I was pretty disappointed by New York menswear. James Dean references in 2011? C'mon. To quote the simperor Drake, I'm just saying you can do better. Now British menswear? I'm a fan. I like labels that look forward and innovate and British menswear does that on a consistent basis.
Exhibit A: The Touba Showroom
Exhibit B: Menswear Day
Well, I say menswear day, I really mean the E.Tautz and Oliver Spencer show. My favourite show was the Lou Dalton one but I was too hot to focus on getting a good picture. And I was sweating buckets by the time I got to Katie Eary's show - not exactly the best look when Kanye West's sitting front row.
