Monitaly AW13 Goodness
Fourth & Main AW13 Pitti Preview
Another fairly recent addition to the menswear scene, Fourth & Main caught my eye amidst more established labels such as Our Legacy, ts(s), Gitman or United Arrows, all showing in the same wing at Pitti. The inviting stand was beautifully decorated with navajo printed rugs and pillows, along with a vintage trunk and desk that set the mood for Paul White’s clean, polished collection focused on contemporary classics with attention to details. Presenting a selection of outerwear including lightweight parkas and jackets as well as wintery wool blazers with flattering fit, the collection pretty much covered all of your AW needs. Accessories such as pocket squares, ties and socks were kept in mind to add some freshness to the looks.

A Unique Parka
Whenever the weather allows it, changing from heavy duffle or overcoats to something lighter and more practical is a welcome change. The lightweight parka is an essential and versatile addition to any wardrobe, an allrounder wearable from early Fall to late Winter. This Cross Jacket is a perfect example, combining a soft twill fabric with several outstanding details such as a warm puffed lining, adjustable drawstring on the waist with leather detailing, biased patch front pockets and button cuffs. Its mao-like collar works brilliantly with a turtleneck sweater, providing the perfect chance to take a break from shirts while keeping a polished and elegant look. I must say my position on turtlenecks has been one of love/hate, mostly because of the poor uses we come across on a daily basis, but also due to its cliché-ish associations. To keep things interesting a dash of color through orange chinos and striped socks, balanced by a pair of blue suede loafers…
