By Michael Macko
Macro-Trends for S/S 2014 Social media is making men much more aware of fashion and trends as they happen. When Pantone named Emerald green the color of 2013, many men were aware of this and immediately looked to update their wardrobes - spending a lot of green on a lot of green. Our new fashion vocabulary word for S/S14 is “Sartisanal”; Sartorial accents in cufflinks, pocket squares, lapel pins, socks, shoe laces, belts, and watch bands are becoming more popular, especially when there is a hand-crafted or artisanal component to the item. Men are starting to really appreciate the element of being made by hand.
Bird Dog Bay
The integration of athletic influences and sport elements into men’s wardrobe also continues; jersey material, elastic waists and cuffs are just some of the details being incorporated into classic silhouettes and classifications. The “Dress Sweat” has become a holy grail item that all men are looking to find! Collared Greens

Age of Wisdom
Age of Wisdom launches a new division of contemporary, young menswear called Black and Blue. This is a truly unique line to be merchandised with premium denim and specializes in special washes and dyes over shirts with uniquely designed snap buttons.
Making their debut this July - this line is crafted using Made in the USA selvedge denim. Their material comes from the only mill left in the USA that has the vintage looms capable of making this grade of denim. Because it requires more time and manpower to produce, this quality of denim is only available in small quantities and is distributed to a select group of jean makers. Buckley Denim is proud to be among them.
Cufflinks, Inc and Lucasfilm LTD’s newest collaboration will be debuting at MRketNY. Cufflinks, Inc. is introducing the new Star Wars Typography and Pop Art Poster Series. Eyebobs Tampa Fuego
eyebobs is introducing an exclusive, limitededition frame called “The Zimm” - a design collaboration between eyebobs and eyebobs enthusiast Andrew Zimmern (creator, host and co-executive producer of Travel Channel’s hit series Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern and Bizarre Foods America). Making its debut for Father’s Day, “The Zimm” will donate a portion of the proceeds to benefit the James Beard Foundation, an organization devoted to celebrating, nurturing, and preserving America’s diverse culinary heritage and future.
Age Of Wisdom Noah Waxman
Noah Waxman shoes are handcrafted from the sole up. Each shoe is constructed by hand in the United States with materials that were hand picked by the designer himself in both the United States and Europe. Utilizing a diverse range of materials such as hair-on calf, exquisitely tooled leather and magnificent exotic skins, Noah creates shoes that are not only stunning, but are impeccably built, ensuring top quality, a comfortable fit and excellence in design; American-made shoes that reflect the diversity and mash-up of cultures that is the United States.
Post-Imperial worked closely with the traditional dyers in Nigeria to develop several color variations on different fabric choices for their pocket squares. Adire is a traditional resist dye technique developed by the Yoruba people in the Southwestern region of Nigeria. Prior to dying, the artist hand paints unique patterns using a cassava starch paste. The cassava acts as a resist dye on the cloth, giving each design an irregular motif.
Private Stock has adds a new generation of neckwear and a new generation of the Cahn family. This launch is an exciting entry into the better young men’s market under the Russell label, and the new family member is Russell Cahn, son of Gary and Jane, who will head the division. Russell’s first collection, now available, was designed by Russell himself and is geared toward better men’s specialty stores that feature narrow lapel clothing.
Tampa Fuego launches a new line of genuine exotic skin cigar accessories - all made in their factory in Florida where they not only make samples, but undertake rigorous product inspections, and manufacture Made in America product.

What are the signature details included in the design that make your collections distinctively unique?
Carsten Sondergaard Director of International Sales & Marketing www.bruunogstengade.dk Booth 360
Describe the Bruun & Stengade man.
Bruun & Stengade appeals to the urban, fashion-conscious man who appreciates the mix of high quality clothing and affordability at the same time. This man seeks individual expression and values the laid-back luxurious look built from comfortable fabrics, excellent fits and first-class craftsmanship. This man doesn’t want to look like everyone else, but prefers to separate himself from the crowd in a stylish manner – and Bruun & Stengade can help him with that!
Tell us a bit about the company’s philosophy.
The philosophy of Bruun & Stengade is actually quite simple! With an open and innovative mindset, we constantly keep pushing the limits of what’s possible in making quality surpass price. The end user is always the focal point no matter what we do and we strive to exceed his expectations season after season.
Every Bruun & Stengade collection revolves around details and we’re especially known for our close attention and ongoing creativity in this area. Everything is thought through - whether it is a contrast thread in a button hole, the lining inside a blazer that matches a shirt or a colorful zipper on a piece of outerwear.
As a company, what social and environmental responsibilities do you focus on? We feel a huge responsibility for the conditions. Therefore, we are very proud to work only with factories that take human care and work facilities very serious. The factories constitute a major part of the entire supply chain, which is why we often go visit them ourselves to make sure that everything is 100% as promised.
If you were not a principal of this brand, what would you be doing?
I have been in the business since forever and I can actually only think of one thing besides this that I could dream of doing… I know it’s a bit cheesy, but being a rock star must be the ultimate desire! Come on, who wouldn’t?!
Do belts and shoes have to match?
Definitely not. A belt is a great defining piece that is often overlooked or taken for granted. The belt provides a great opportunity for a pop of color or to use a great piece of hardware as a beautiful detail to finish off a look.
Craig Carter and Michael Reese Co-Presidents and Founders www.carterandreese.com Booth 365
Describe the Carter & Reese man.
The Carter & Reese man is a guy who pays attention to detail. He wants pieces that are handcrafted, distinct, and all-American. He has discerning taste and it comes through in every facet of his wardrobe.
Which “must-have” item from your Spring/Summer 2014 collection will instantly update a man’s wardrobe?
A great way to update a man’s look is with a Carter & Reese bag. Whether he’s headed to the office, a day at the park, or on a weekend getaway, the right bag is the perfect item to finish a look. Our bags are crafted from the finest American tanned leathers and exotic skins.
From where do you draw inspiration?
We draw a lot of inspiration from vintage Americana and from handmade craftsmanship that you would see back in the early 1900s. Being Texas guys, we look quite a bit at ranching heritage and Native American patterns and materials. All of our products are made in the USA, which is very important to us.
What accessory “flair” do you feel is acceptable to wear with a suit in an everyday office environment?
A pocket square adds just the right amount of sophistication to finish off a look without being too buttoned up. You can really set off a beautiful suit with just the right hint of color or texture peeking out.
If you were not principals of this brand, what would you be doing?
Neither of us can really see ourselves doing anything else. Craig was told by a mentor that if you stay in the fashion industry for long you’ll get to a point where you never want to leave. We both have definitely reached that point and beyond. There has always been the dream to start a brand/company and now we’re off and running.
What factors do you feel are important when incorporating vintage style into modern menswear?
We don’t want to imitate old fashion, but rather borrow interesting elements and advance them with textile innovation and processing techniques.
In your opinion, what is one trend that will always remain in style? Value – giving the customer more style and quality than they expect.
Harvey Jones President www.cooperjones.com Booth 713
What is your favorite New York City hangout?
Describe the Cooper Jones man.
The Cooper Jones man is a young-thinking and adventuresome guy that has the confidence to dress himself! He’s comfortable making independent choices, appreciates nice fabrics and recognizes innovative design and detail.
My favorite New York City hangout is The High Line in Summer or Fall.
If you were not a principal of this brand, what would you be doing?
How do your cloth dyeing formulas differ from other brands?
I would be creating another brand.
We use a wide variety of dying techniques from barrel wash to cloud wash in order to achieve our vintage effects.
What do you consider to be the world’s best fashion city for men and why?
I consider Tokyo to be the world’s best fashion city for men. The density of a 30 million person urban environment with multiple men’s fashion magazines and innovative specialty and department store retailers result in an incredible fashion scene.
Crease or no crease down the front of the leg?
The majority of Halsey garments are garment-dyed. There is no pant leg crease but the collection is suitable for both professional and casual wear. The garment dye process used in Halsey products avoids the distressed look and affirms a clean, presentable style.
William (Bill) H. Johnson III CEO/Co-Founder www.halsey44.com Booth 908
Describe the Halsey man.
The Halsey man is independent and comfortable in his own skin. He is youthful in attitude, adventurous, and intentional in style. His Halsey favorites may fluctuate from the classic straight leg pant or short to the more tailored cut to cover any occasion. One thing is certain; he knows he never has to sacrifice style for comfort because with Halsey they are one and the same.
Which “must-have” color from your Spring/Summer 2014 collection will instantly update a man’s wardrobe?
The ‘Halsey Spring 2014’ color palette is diversified to fit a man’s wardrobe according to region, climate and personal preference. The Halsey color range also allows the independent man an opportunity to explore colors other than his typical basics and to choose colors that reflect his image and character. Halsey’s Calypso Blue is a personal favorite after returning from my recent sailing cruise aboard the Sea Cloud II in the Caribbean and Virgin Islands.
What are some of your favorite retailers from across the country that currently carry Halsey? Some of our favorite stores that currently carry Halsey are Ron Robinson at Fred Segal, Partners LTD, Khaki’s of Carmel, The Clotherie, Carriages, Sebastian’s Closet, Moonbow Tropics, Fitzgerald’s, Ticknors, Nordstrom, Norton Ditto, Patrick James and Kitson.
What is your favorite New York City hangout?
My favorite New York City hangout is either Soho House in Chelsea or Sons of Essex in Lower East Side.
What has been your main source of inspiration in creating this organic take on dresswear?
Kevin Lavelle CEO/Co-Founder Web Smith CMO/Co-Founder www.mizzenandmain.com Booth 462
Describe the Mizzen+Main man.
The Mizzen+Main “Main Man” grew up a go-getter and has a sense of style but isn’t overdone. He is a class gentleman but isn’t afraid to roll up his sleeves and get his hands dirty. A Mizzen+Main client works long and hard, is always on the go, and often needs to look his best in the boardroom or out on the town. No other shirts enable men to have an active lifestyle and still look great all day long.
Which “must-have” item from your Spring/Summer 2014 collection will instantly update a man’s wardrobe?
The Mizzen+Main blazer blends high style with functionality. The versatility will allow for rugged travel and black tie nights. Our latest performance dress shirts will instantly update a man’s wardrobe and keep him looking his best both day and night on the go.
Can I wear a suit without a tie?
Absolutely, if the occasion calls for it. We’re always of the mindset that it’s best to be overdressed than underwhelming.
We are inspired by both modern athletic gear and the refined look of a traditional gentleman’s professional wardrobe. The classic, traditional style of New England influences the design and character of everything we do at Mizzen+Main, along with our commitment to keep everything American made. Our products are designed with athletes in mind - from the fabric and garment itself to the extensive focus on a superior “off the rack” fit.
Tell us a little about Mizzen+Main’s involvement with the 2013 CrossFit Games.
A CrossFit athlete is just the kind of athlete we have in mind as we design our clothes. As such, we are honored to be outfitting some of the announcers of the 2013 CrossFit Games this summer.
From your personal experiences, what factors do you feel are key when it comes to building a successful brand? Honesty and sincerity are essential. It goes without saying that you must have a superior product and top notch design, but people will see right through you and your brand if you aren’t honest and sincere.
How do you think the label has developed over time? Starting the brand in Germany more than a decade ago, Pure shirts can be found today in premium men’s stores in many countries all over the world.
Do you have any plans to branch out beyond men’s shirts? Peter Spoerer Chief Designer www.pureshirts.com Booth 364
Describe the Pure man. The Pure man is fashion-conscious and looking for a special, modern shirt made by a shirt specialist.
Which “must-have” color from your Spring/Summer 2014 collection will instantly update a man’s wardrobe? Colors, colors, colors! The bright colors like acid yellow and bright geranium red.
What is one golden rule of menswear dressing? Always find the right outfit for the right occasion and especially take care of your choice in accessories.
What are some materials Pure is using that makes the collection so distinctive? Some distinctive characteristics of our shirts are the exclusive design developments especially made for Pure by excellent Italian weaving and printing companies. Also, trimmings selected with care and a lot of detail.
Pure is a shirt brand made by a shirt specialist. The range of accessories has increased in the last seasons. Pure offers ties, scarves, gloves, and very important at the moment, pocket squares.
If you were not a designer or principal of this brand, what would you be doing? I have never done anything else that has not related to design. Is there anything that is not related to design?! All the things I am interested in are somehow connected with design or the history of it – whether it is my interest in cooking, gardening or interiors.

“At the turn of the XXth Century, the French company Saphir revolutionized the leather care industry by re-creating an ancient Venetian formula for shoe polish based on turpentine, unique pigments and a combination of waxes. After being recognized with the Gold Medal at the Worlds Fair in Paris 1925, Saphir has continually produced an extensive range of what is routinely regarded as the world’s finest shoe care products.” www.avel.com
