Well, the “big news” today is that Thom Browne will launch a capsule women’s collection this fall, but here’s the actual news:
Thom’s been making womenswear for quite some time now.
If you’re friendly with his sales staff – and willing to shell out thousands for your outfit – you can already buy some of his womenswear pieces at his studio and shop downtown.
Whether you’ll look good in his straight-lined silhouettes is an entirely different story, but if you’re killing for a pair of menswear slacks and can’t quite pull off Thom’s proportions – or Thom’s prices – there are some options.
If you’re small, the boy’s department at J. Crew or Ralph Lauren is a great place for pants (and it’s okay if they hit at the ankle for summer, just like Thom’s do).
If you’re a normal size, Trovata also makes some good slacks for girls…
