The second to last chapter of men's fashion month has come to a close in Paris. We've already recapped the highs and lows from the designer collections, and now it's time to turn to the streets, where showgoers opted for a more muted palette than we saw in Milan, where colorful patterned suits and shirts ruled the scene. In Paris, neutral tones like black, while and olive green dominated, as did classic suits in shades of brown and mustard. Against the often outrageous designs seen at Balmain, Saint Laurent and certainly at Junya Watanabe this season, it's only natural the perennially cool menswear editors would return to relative basics for their show-going looks. Key work: relative. These men love an outrageous shirt.
