The Thread

While we're not entirely infatuated with menswear, there are some lines that catch and hold our attention. Spurr, which started off as a few jeans at Bergdorf Goodman and has expanded into a tailored, full-blown collection -- is one of those lines.

Music from British artist The Streets opened up the show, which felt like London tailoring mixed with punk, then infused with a bit of good old American grunge -- think crisply-done suiting paired with a knit scarf and a beanie cap.

The highlights were the nerd-chic suits in bold stripes and checks (topped off with the requisite tortoise-shell glasses), as well as some sumptuous leather jackets and trousers. The separates looked like the kind a wealthy gent might throw on, styled with the carefree swagger of London street style: feather-topped hats pushed back on heads and edgy leather driving gloves rounded out the looks.
