The Masterpiece Autumn Winter 2011 Lookbook has the denim that sets your man apart from the rest. Our personal favorite look of the bunch is the dark wash denim hoodie with contrast stitching and lining. That is one piece of clothing that better be hidden deep in his closet, or we’re coming for it. The line also has a denim work shirt, which is so versatile that it should definitely be a staple piece of any guy’s wardrobe this season. Their jean jacket stands out from the usual styles due to its pleated detailing and distressed denim wash—just enough to get you noticed, but not look like you’re trying to hard. This lookbook lets it be known: if you’re rocking Masterpiece this fall, you will not be disappointed.
