The last time tailoring was big was circa 2010, when The Sartorialist was still given front row seats at Fashion Week, which also meant it came with all the classic rules of men’s suiting. The shoulders must ﬁt, the last button on the jacket should be undone, yada yada... yawn . From loungey and mismatched to streamlined and belted over, the look returns with no restrictions. None of that street style peacock association, just the idea that jacket + pants = foolproof smart.
