Monochromatic Menswear

January 30, 2012 § Leave a comment

Where womenswear is concerned, a black-on-black ensemble has been (and will remain in perpetuity) one of the chicest go-to options.  However, this particular monochromatic look rarely (if ever) translates to menswear and leaves a beau looking contrived, macabre, and/or just plain ridiculous.

So, we posed the question: What is the beau’s answer to the belle’s black go-to?  Turns out, the beaux have multiple monochromatic options where outfitting is concerned.  (Also see previous Beau of the Week Justin.)

The Look: dinner jacket, Austin Reed; shawled cotton peacoat (interior), H&M; driving loafers, Cole Haan; button down, pants, belt, all American Apparel.

The Look: trench coat, Burberry; penny loafers, Cole Haan; cardigan, button down, slacks, belt, all American Apparel.

The Look:  blazer, vintage; driving loafers, Cole Haan; overnight bag, vintage Samsonite; sweater, pants, belt, all American Apparel.
