Fashion Week returns with a deep (much-needed!) breath of fresh air for the upcoming spring 2013 season. Most of the lines feature series of texturized prepped-out spring looks, never-before-seen sweaters, a definable nod to pastel colors, and laid back 90s look with light fabrics. As we always seem to, (no we have no commercial/capital ties with this company, we promise! :), we love Michael Bastian’s spring collection. His stuff is always so fresh. It’s the dreaded-of-all words: wear-able—plus it’s crisp, original, and sexily subtle.
Let’s start with the Grey Linen Suit Look, shown on September 9, 2012:
“The gray linen suit look…can’t wait for summer to wear it!”—Ted Stafford, GQ Fashion Market Director
The Vibe for Spring 2013
It’s boogie nights this season at Michael Bastian, as the designer’s American alpha males are walking with some extra swagger in their step. It’s all thanks to a louche collection of menswear that’s equal parts sporty and relaxed, but always effortlessly cool. Bastian’s signature, classic menswear pieces made fresh, still anchors the lineup, seen in versatile sport coats and clever cut-off shorts, but the designer experiments even more in this outing, like crafting a deep V-neck sweater front in the style of a kimono robe. Never one to shy away from color, this season Bastian softened his hues, opting for a dusty palette that sees neutral grays and tans paired with pistachio and lilac. It’s a collection made for the type guy who owns any room he walks into—and, more importantly, knows it.
And Parke and Ronen never seem to disappoint either:

And not only is the new fall line impeccable (as always!) and super trendy, check out the spring collection:
“Deep red doubled-breasted jacket on Clement. Sharp, slimmed-down version of a classic double-breasted blazer, in such a rich hue.”—Matthew Sebra, GQ associate fashion editor
Words cannot describe McQueen’s new Fall 2012 Collection. Just watch…
Straight from the mouth of GQ magazine contributor Matthew Sebra: “Sarah Burton’s Fall 2012 collection for the house of McQueen celebrated one of the brand’s hallmarks, razor sharp tailoring, and to let guys experience the roped shouldered goods beyond a traditional lookbook the brand put together the above clip. It’s traditional Savile Row menswear meets signature McQueen plays on proportion and pattern and loaded with natty rigs a stylish (and loaded) man could use.”
Here are some of Cufflinksman’s Favorite Looks, coupled with our (much more affordable, but still as stylish) accessories:

We especially love the detailing on this sweater! It really primes the look for the pivotal transition between fall and winter. The tailored, clean blue suit brings out the “rustic” qualities in the sweater too.
