To first understand the country gentleman's sense of style one must go west, country western, that is. Vintage inspired-country and western style led to many of the spring/summer 2014 runway collections for men. Daisuke Obana of N. Hoolywood is said to always be inspired by vintage looks when he pieces together his collections. This season he referenced the golden days of cowboy movies, “Two-Gun Hicks" (his favorite) and “The Narrow Trail.” Through use of denim, plaid, western stripes and contrasting panels, his collection took root, blossomed and sprang into the 21st century.
Ralph Lauren was inspired by 1920s and 1940s fashion because according to him, those eras of menswear “has always been about a unique mix of tailored fits and utility.” Unexpected combinations with a modern look and feel, is how Lauren introduced his collection this season. The use of neutrals and brights, rugged trousers and sports shirts made history worth repeating.
Country charm just isn't the same without the perfect headgear, like the ones from Country Gentleman. Country Gentleman hats are timeless and sophisticated. A quality hat for spring/summer season is light, cool and durable. Fedoras, driving caps and newsboys will perfectly top-off any outfit the country gentleman wears this season.
