This is probably the umpteenth time I’ve professed my adoration for the Band of Outsiders collection. The brand has caught fire this season especially from the enlisting of Kanye West (a pretty notable pop / hip-hop artist) in their ad campaign.
Hopefully, we can share this appreciation when viewing the images from the site’s lookbook (see all images after jump). What I particularly like about Band of Outsiders is the styling. It has always been about the looks in its entirety as opposed to the pieces. There are several designers trying to mimic Mr. Sternberg’s direction – some being completely successfully because I wouldn’t be able to distinguish one from another in many cases. Perhaps, chalk up their success to good advertising.
My absolute favorites include the navy blue toggle coat, all of the shoes (Sperry collaboration), and the herringbone suit.
