image

Track pants once the domain of athletes and jocks are a hot item for fall. Whether you choose a print or solid style casual sweat trouser, be sure to wear it with a tailored jacket or a statement sweater or both.Todd Snyder’s soft knit jersey pant is paired with a black and white striped sweater and a brown velvet jacket perfectly illustrates this new take on gentlemanly dressing. Nautica’s ribbed ankle knit trouser worn with a chunky, speckled navy sweater is topped off with a light gray wool, military style Alpine jacket to make weekend errands look stylish and comfortable. Moschino’s charcoal knit casual pant is pulled together with a printed scarf tucked into a scarlet red shirt and worn with a gray pin-striped jacket, creating a dressed-up casual effect perfect for an evening outing. Giorgio Armani’s sublime double breasted calvary jacket worn with neoprene drawstring pants and a shearling coat breaks all the rules and shifts the role of menswear classics. Dries Van Noten’s paisley tapered sweat pants and purple mohair v-neck sweater worn with a Turkish tile patterned blazer is a bit bohemian, a bit disheveled, yet nails that perfect sense of cool desired by many young actors. Richard Nicoll’s athletic inspired stone gray sweat trouser worn under a silver metallic hoodie and a long gray wool coat, reflects today’s post modern punk uniform. The key to pulling off this casual look is careful layering to create the perfect balance between activewear and ready-to-wear.  Keep the pajamas pants at home!
