If basic, Abercrombie and Fitch menswear is too preppy for your taste, try looking to Schuyler 4 for a more sophisticated look entirely. The Midtown New York showroom features three European designers, each with a unique and cosmopolitan style that looks infinitely more sophisticated than your average hoodie and jeans. They hosted a private preview on March 19.
Alberto’s pants range from the perfect pair of jeans in straight leg styles to perfect-fit chinos and dress pants that give other menswear companies a run for their money. Jeans range from whiskered and faded to deep blue dark washes. For more adventurous dressers, cords and dress pants also make an appearance in the latest collection.
Australian designer Haupt is also present in the showroom, with plaid and flannel shirts that run the gamut from basic to brightly colored. If comfort is a concern, Haupt’s shirts have their bases covered there as well; the shirts are made of soft warm flannel that feels as good as it looks.
If it’s time to retire that tired sweatshirt from the closet, Codice’s luxe knitwear has the perfect substitutes. The brand’s style is that of laid-back sophistication, pairing plush knit sweaters with sweatshirt hoods, and fleece linings with warmer windbreakers.
