Menswear had the privilege of having a fashion veteran return to the runways at this year’s New York Fashion Week Men’s. Long time menswear designer Joseph Abboud made a splash with his vintage inspired collection for his 2016 fall presentation.

Joseph Abboud is the epitome of American made menswear. Each piece of the collection, including the accessories which were a collaboration with Abboud and six different other designers, were all made in the United States. The entire collection is rich in texture and luxury, which was made apparent as each model made his way down the runway.
Each piece brings a sense of nostalgia reminiscent of the 1960’s. Abboud makes inspirational references to Savile Row and the dandies of American menswear. The collection has impeccable bespoke tailoring and opulent fabric choices. Rich colors of grey, chocolate, rust, olive and blue bleed throughout the assortment of clothing.
It’s easy to see what makes Joseph Abboud a hit not just here in the states but around the world. A strong commitment to excellence and a constant ease, even when over styled, filled the men from head to toe. Definitely a strong return from this much needed voice in menswear.
