It’s showtime for menswear right now; Milan is done and dusted, Paris is in full swing, and we’re fully glued to the goings-on and off the catwalk there. What the boys are wearing, you see, is a subject of much scrutiny and envy at Chinti and Parker. Menswear is, in essence, built on luxury basics. Beautiful fine knits, simple, elegant shirting, trousers that flatter whether they’re dress-down or dress-up, and a core palette of flattering neutrals that never dates.
Womenswear is a whole other game of fuss, frippery, discomfort and endless fads, something we occasionally enjoy, but mostly find a bit of a nuisance. Lest this be misconstrued as a feminist rant (we LOVE men, fact), here are some menswear style inspirations (er, some eye candy) that are readily available at Chinti and Parker, and which frankly look a storm on a bit of feminine curvature. Let’s hear it for the boys!
