A marriage made in heaven, this seasons theme of outdoorsy chic is the check patterned shirt with a fine pair of jeans. Whether you want to go flannel plaid for a rogue woodsman look, a simple check for a more refined rocky mountain high kind of flair, or a posh glen plaid for a glass of a single malt before going on a fox hunt kind of a look, just get your check on!
Awesome plaid blazer in muted black and dark green. Just enough subtle dandy details, that make this blazer a standout for fall.
Brown and hunter green gingham biker jacket from popular UK designers You Must Create. The jacket has antique brass hardware, an asymmetrical front zip, front pockets, and sleeve zip detail. A very gentlemanly take on a rebellious style.
Don’t want to go all the way? Here’s a safe bet that may entice your fashion appetite. Premium, slim cut cotton shirt with contrast check detail from the debut collaboration between Comme des Gar?§ons and their own London flagship store, Dover Street Market.
Button-down long-sleeved shirt from Lyle & Scott Vintage. This is a new design for AW09, and features and all over check pattern, that works as well for smart as it does for casual wear.
Interpretations of classic shirting have been one of the key elements in Band of Outsider’s collections and this cotton flannel check shirt is a perfect example of this.
Premium cashmere and merino scarf featuring a large checked pattern on one side and block colour on the other with fringes at either end. This is a great example of Barbour’s premium knitwear, and is perfect for winter.
I love a good eye candy dandy. Bon vivants who are not afraid to sport pink, covet Saville Row suits, passionate for well crafted shoes, and a perfectly fitting denim jean. The modern artfully disheveled dandy has that “just threw it on” look with aristocratic pizzazz. Get the look anchored by some great denim jeans.

J. Crew Men’s Store Opens in SoHo
by JEAN E. PALMIERI

Location, location, location.
J. Crew will open its third men??™s-only store today at 484 Broadway in Manhattan, sandwiched between the new Topshop/Topman and the company??™s Madewell women??™s concept.
The 3,406-square-foot men??™s store is in a 19th-century building in SoHo and features a curated and edited assortment of J. Crew standards, limited edition product and vintage pieces. It also houses the company??™s first Suit Shop space dedicated to tailored clothing.
???As we started to develop our men??™s business from a design, edited and curated point of view, we felt we couldn??™t effectively articulate the assortment in our normal J. Crew store,??? said Millard ???Mickey??? Drexler, chief executive officer. ???We saw an opportunity in the marketplace for a store that is dedicated to men only, where a man would see it as his world and he didn??™t have to share it with women??™s or Crewcuts [the company??™s children??™s wear concept].???
As a result, the company removed men??™s from the 2,600 square feet that it occupied on the lower level of the 13,000-square-foot J. Crew store on Prince Street, a few blocks north, to give men??™s its own home. The decision also allowed the retailer to expand its women??™s collection and Crewcuts selection on Prince Street, Drexler said.
