Hey, I’m Josh!
Here at The Kentucky Gent I share my adventures in the men's fashion and lifestyle world. Take a look around and let me know what you think.
Filed In: NYFW
Ovadia & Sons: Brother duo, Ariel and Shimon, always have one of my favorite shows of the seasons. From the sleek lines to the oversized silhouettes their pieces are ones you can easily translate from the runway to the street – something that’s not often achieved.
Nautica: Honestly, never wanted to be a sailor until the brand’s NYFWM AW16 show, and it more than likely has a lot to do with how handsome most of the guys were in the show, but equally as much with how well the brand has positioned themselves as a more fashion forward version of their former selves – just like their counterpart Perry Ellis. Even though it was their first show in a few years the brand didn’t miss a single beat, and it was hands down one of the best executed shows of the week.
Carlos Campos: We all know that I’m not one to wear a suit, but I think i’d make an exception for Carlos Campos. From the sleek navy and black paired suits to all white looks that I’d never be able to leave the house in without getting stained there wasn’t a single piece that walked down the runway that I wouldn’t welcome into my closet with open arms.
Robert Geller: As soon as I saw a handful of the models walk down the runway with grey painted hair I knew this was going to be a good show. The color palette of the show ranged from more neutral colors to the the brighter colors that you see below, and it proved that while fashion may not be for everyone there’s definitely an art behind it and that coloring outside the lines is always in fashion.
Matiere: Always a crowd, and personal, favorite Matiere makes even the most laid back, casual piece look the part with it’s expertly tailored pieces. I never realized I wanted a white, fuzzy hoodie until Matiere made me realize that actually, I do need it in my closet.
CWST: I’ve never felt personally transported to a space outside of NYC until I walked into CWST’s presentation at the NYMD AW16 shows. The brand is a mix of west coast vibes and east coast mentality. It’s chill and laid back, and most of all – insanely comfortable, but it also takes a nod from NYC in regards to it’s color palette. You’d be just a swell suited wearing any of these pieces no matter which coast you’re on.
Lucio Castro: I’ve been a fan of the short suit for awhile, and Lucio Castro reminded me why in this season’s presentation. While the majority of the collection isn’t something I would wear on a day to day basis the fits and fabrics he chose would fit in quite nicely in my closet at home.
PLAC: When in doubt, always wear black, and when black doesn’t cut it – throw in a few shades of grey, and you’re guaranteed to have an outfit that’s the perfect mix of looking like you don’t give a fuck while actually caring way too much about what you look like.
