Summer Shirts

Despite my penchant for formal attire, the casual shirt is something of an art to me, as it’s an outlet for more intricate design work—specifically, designing unusual prints.The print can make or break a short sleeve or causal shirt and conceptualizing it with appropriate scale is a fine balance.

My philosophy is this: Small prints can cover more cloth, large prints should cover less cloth. The Spring/Summer collection was inspired by retro Hollywood parties so I incorporated various palm tree prints into the textiles for shirtings and accessories. I used classic color ways, black/grey and blue/light blue making this print easy to wear for most sensibilities and pairs great with any color pant. The short sleeve shirt looks great with a light weight trouser in an unexpected color, tailored shorts, or even denim for a fresh Summer look. For a dapper summer occasion, a sport coat over the long sleeve is a superb
combination.

I hope you enjoy these sartorial Summer ideas, and invite you to branch out and give it a try…

Tailored Bomber Jacket

Have you ever thought about when not to wear a suit?

For many the suit is a uniform, it communicates strength, power and competency. Because of this, it is the outfit of choice for men who want to be taken seriously and not be forced to think too seriously about their style.

I myself am accustomed to the ease that wearing a suit, (or tailored sport coat), can provide. It is an easy choice that prevents me from feeling lost in sportswear options when dressing down may be appropriate, yet there are times when arriving in a full suit gives me a sense of discomfort rather than feeling confident and cool. While I agree with Oscar Wilde, one can never be too overdressed or over educated, that is not an invitation for the smartest man in the room to parade his IQ as much as a stylish man should not assume he is such for always showing up in a suit.

How does today’s man look elegant, stylish and feel comfortable when not wearing a suit? It seems that most designers answer have become increasingly casual, with the prominence of street-wear disseminating every corner of clothing both sartorial and casual. Rises are getting longer, cloth stretchier, and luxury branded goods are being superimposed with sporting teams and fast food logos. Searching for an answer myself, inspiration often strikes at times of internal frustration and as I refuse to allow casual-wear to become ubiquitous with street-wear I had a desire to design and wear a garment that bestowed the sexy and sleek feeling of a suit with the familiar comfort of wearing a hoodie.

My new tailored bomber jacket bridges the gap for any man on the go or at leisure. Styled with classic suiting cloth with a fit towards casual comfort and finishing as meticulous as my formalwear, one can dress the bomber up with slacks and a sweater as easily as they can dress it down with jeans and a t-shirt.

If a well tied tie is the first serious step in life, then owning a (Mark Pomerantz) jacket with zippers is certainly the last… I’ll bet Oscar would agree.

Formalwear / Fall Winter 2018

As the holiday season approaches we must think about the shift from our business-wear to formalwear–Sometimes this can leave us feeling lost. This in mind, every season I like to design one unique piece of formalwear that can take us from a dapper day time look in jeans, to a black-tie event.

This season my concept takes shape as Look. No. 7 from the Fall/Winter collection. A one-button notch lapel suit in an unexpected amber color, it wears well as a dinner jacket with a black trouser, layered with a cashmere turtleneck for a holiday dinner, or with a crisp tuxedo shirt for more formal holiday events.

It’s possibly the most comfortable suit you may ever wear, in a sinful blend of silk and camelhair; it is much like wearing a favorite well-loved flannel–Luxurious, soft and thin. You can even switch out the trouser with dark denim as a more relaxed take and still be the most dapper man in the room…
