Keane Etro heads from Italy to the deserts of the American southwest. Our favorite looks include a gutsy tweed suit with a Navajo-inspired patterned turtleneck and a tan trench that looked classic but with true Etro swagger!—Jim Moore, GQ creative director

Frida Giannini rolls out one of her very best collections for Gucci, seemingly inspired by English dandies, American rockers, and Italian gentlemen. There are so many covetable things in this collection, especially the sherpa-lined wool jean jacket, the plaid suit, the shiny wool double-breasted suit, the over-scaled DB topcoat, and a deep green trim-fit handknit cable sweater.—Jim Moore, GQ creative director

And finally, this Raf Simons Fall 2012 collection is a bold nod to the old English charm, mixed with oversized colors and cables, makes for a perfect fall look.

GQ says, “Who wore the pants this season? Nobody at Raf. They wore shorts. Yes, shorts in the Fall, trouser shorts that is. Didn’t matter if a double-breasted suit, a trim cerulean pea coat, or a nubby chartreuse sweater was up top. It was less British school boy and more 80s cool kid thanks to slouchier tailoring; shots of deep color; and eyes obstructed by bucket hats and slicked-forward hair straight from the New Wave era. Sure, the whole bare-ankle thing wasn’t practical, but it made one hell of an impression.
