Comfort was key for the men’s collection, as basic tees and piqué shirts were made cozy and preppy with lightweight knits and pullovers layered over, and paired with khaki and cargo shorts and dark-colored trousers to complete each look. Also featured were men’s button downs in classic checks and plaids, suit jackets in basic gray hues, and cozy outerwear in army green and navy blue, adding smarter and more tailored ensembles to the repertoire.
