Weather Essentials with Nautica and Todd Snyder at NYFWM

Notice how getting ready doesn’t end with just putting your clothes on? The gloves, the sunglasses, the watch, the footwear, the scarf, the jacket… Because we are truly inundated with the fad of accessories.

Come colder climates in many parts of the world, menswear starts to become layered and often brimming with such accessories. Two of the largest runway shows that exemplified this had ample ideas for what men could adorn on a chilly morning or polar vortex night at New York Fashion Week Mens (NYFWM).

Nautica boasted of a new message labelled “Inspired by the sea, designed by the city”. The goal was to stick with the nautical inspired roots but add a functional and stylistic, structured element. My favorites were the whites and blues, owing to the brand heritage. A white varsity style jacket, a white wool peacoat and a white down vest were standouts, owing to their clean design and cool looks. A transparent rendition worked very well too as a raincoat of sorts, with enough pockets to stuff those accessories.

There were of course the nautical stripes or the classic navy blues, always structured with functional pockets or left plain to look effortlessly dapper. I liked the pairing with ski style sunglasses or scarves, some with dramatic lengths to exude both cool and warmth all at once.

Pops of reds and yellow appeared too, sometimes an all red knit or a longer scarf. The mustard trousers, the all red knits were all favorites, and if one peered closely, there were several insulated gloves, layered collars and overall storm proof jackets that were a must have in cyclic seasons.

Compared to this fantastic staple showcase, Todd Snyder closed the week with a collection that was disparate from his previously reviewed spring collection. With no less than 48 looks, his was one of the largest of collections, catering to what every man would want. From suits to sweaters to coats to sweatpants, it was a Frankenstein of a collection of sorts, albeit one that worked because it captured the entire market.

There were a few bright patches, like an orange parka and sweatpants, or an all red casual outfit reminding me of the casual vibes from Loris Diran. The winter hats themselves, with snowflake motifs, sometimes alongside beanies, were akin to the Nautica accessory lineup.

I particularly liked the longer coats, in greens, greys and blacks. Expedition inspired coats boasted of modernism and naturalism, as per Snyder himself. There were also trench coats and cropped jackets like those seen at Mens Day. This included the military colors, trenchcoats and olive or forest green turtlenecks.

I also enjoyed the return of the cardigan, often with a relaxing drawstring or in a comfy sweater knit. The sweaters themselves were also classically cut, ready to be gobbled up in the mainstream world.

For nightlife addicts, velvet tuxedos or fur lined suits in greys and indigos were also noticed. It seemed like a large and complete collection of tailoring and utilitarian pieces, almost like a summary of men’s fashion week with something that catered to everyone.

The afterparty at the opulent Gilded Lily was another tale altogether, complete with all the ingredients for a model style scene.
