Paul Smith Fall 2011 Menswear
So what can I say about Paul Smith's Fall 2011 menswear collection, other than that the clothes were impeccably tailored and looks impeccably styled? Nothing, really, cuz they were. Smith's modus operandi is to mix vintage with modern; it's a tried and true formula, really, and oh does it work. Just open any random GQ of the last 5 years and you'll see what I mean.
I loved the outerwear, the coats and jackets and cardigans, and how they added dimension and that necessary sartorial heft that the modern man definitely needs. Trousers too, were fitted, freely allowing movement, while the layering was just perfect; not too done, not too under-done.
