Old Joe F/W 2015-2016

You've been over this before about Old Joe, but it bears repeating: take note of the brand and its designer, Yusuke Takagi. Old Joe's seventh collection, on display below, is stellar, just as the previous six have been. Takagi has the rare ability to create heritage-inspired garments with a modern feel. His fervent love of craftsmanship and attention to detail make for pieces that could outlast you. You can only tip your cap to the few who do it this well and eagerly look forward to more.

A Kind of Guise F/W 2015

Munich's A Kind of Guise took inspiration from Mongolian football culture for its fall-winter offering, entitled "FB Baganuur." Although not the likeliest of sources for a menswear collection, the brand's focus on Mongolia, with its history of Chinese and Russian influences, provided an interesting point of departure from which to design clothes. Minimalist silhouettes rendered in sumptuous wools and leathers coupled with classic tailoring (and, for good measure, a straightforward stadium jacket) make for one heck of a collection.
