PARIS–English fashion still thrives on a history of fine bespoke tailoring originating from London’s Savile Row. Also known as The Row, off Regent Street in the center of town, the legendary street is known for its high concentration of old-school, blue-blooded suits. Yet, despite the dozens of shows during London fashion week, many of The Row’s best are left behind–including key old-school masters. To coincide with Paris Men’s fashion week, Esquire UK selected seven designers who don’t show. Ever. But who should–according to editor-in-chief Jeremy Langmead and co. The mag went on to organize a fashion show for each. On Friday at Paris’s Bristol Hotel, Esquire threw its “7 Brilliant Brits” event. In every corner of the room, a screen showed a film of each designer’s catwalk, along with explanation booklets about each collection.
The runways for RTW Spring 2011 in Milan this past week have been littered with man-jeggings. (Neologism = meggings?) And T's The Moment blog just confirmed it with a tweet: "Jeggings- new term coined for all the jean and trouser-like leggings and super slim, tight pants being shown here this season." The jegging is a risky and conflicted clothing item for most ladies. On the one hand, when done right, they're just like skinny jeans only more comfortable (hooray for elastic waist bands!). On the other hand, they can be epically ugly and tricky to pull off. And now, terrifyingly, men are following suit. Lauren even noticed man-jeggings at Top Shop back in January. We're hoping this isn't a trend that trickles down. But we've seen enough too-tight skinny jean-ed ass-cracks along Bedford Ave. to know that hipsters aren't parting with their beloved trouser anytime soon. So we're looking at you, Williamsburg, when we say: Please, treat this trend responsibly. Click through, at your own risk, to see man-jeggings on the runway. more
