We didn't say much about men's fashion week, not because we don't care, but because some things are best left to the Sartorialist. (And because we aren't really taking Miuccia's man-skirts seriously). But we just clicked through Paul Smith's A/W '08 show and realized that we've been sort of missing out. An English dandy meets rock n' roll meets East Village hipster ensemble sounds disastrous, but Smith's pompadoured models pulled it off masterfully. The British designer, (who also makes great women's clothes), styled an eclectic look that's both high fashion and masculine. His mix of traditional plaid with satin pants, pocket watches and skewed ties made us want the outfits, and the accessories, off the runway - for us. And we haven't said that since our first look at Thom Browne.
