Pick Pock­ets

When it comes to menswear, there ap­pear to be two very op­pos­ing schools of thought: the avant-garde ex­trem­ists and the pared-down clas­si­cists. We are ar­dent ad­mir­ers of both, and be­lieve fash­ion is in­deed both sub­jec­tive, as well as a dis­tinctly in­di­vid­ual ex­pres­sion of one’s char­ac­ter or cur­rent dis­po­si­tion. That is the down and out truth; the beauty of fash­ion is that there is no right or wrong. It can paint a com­plete pic­ture with sev­eral con­flict­ing el­e­ments or with one sim­ple, and seem­ingly un­re­mark­able com­po­nent. This is­sue, we are un­de­ni­ably cel­e­brat­ing the less ob­vi­ous de­tails – when was the last time you thought about your… pock­ets? Stand­out pock­ets were all the rage at the Fall 2015 menswear shows, bleed­ing into even Spring 2016 in some cases, with all man­ner of zip­pers and ma­te­ri­als adorn­ing them. Now, what to put in these pock­ets? Yes, in some in­stances there is am­ple space for an iPad and per­haps even a ca­nine of the teacup va­ri­ety, but what could be more novel than pulling a flash pocket watch out of that big ol’ pocket of yours? Oh, the irony!
