If you have read our blog before, then you probably already know about our excitement over Club Monaco’s collections this year. With Timothy Farah at the helm, tailored goods became the centerpiece of the collection. Fully canvased suits with roped shoulders and functional button-holes priced at $500 ($400 for college students) are what really caught the attention of everyone around town. However, suits weren’t the only things that Club Monaco did right this year–sport coats, outerwear, knits, ties were all top notch in ’09.
If you’re not familiar with Club Monaco, you should start taking a closer look because they did affordable menswear better than anyone else out there this year. They’re collections are perfect for college kids who are just beginning to build a wardrobe as they have all the essentials with a plenty of unique pieces every season. As we must now think about 2010–this being the first day and all–we are super-excited to see their Spring/Summer collection in person. We really have faith in Farah as he really knows how to do the essentials, and from what we hear, the new season is going to be stellar.
