There are a lot of great looking collections surfacing for the spring. Our Legacy, Nom de Guerre, Kitsune, Mjolk, Band of Outsiders, Engineered Garments among others are looking really great. But when it comes down to the hot weather, this is what I will probably be wearing. I like simple things. I like white tees and oxfords. While this chap's shirt might be a little less fitted than mine, this is pretty much what I am going to live in come summer time. The oxford shirt has really become like my T shirt for the most part. Of course it doesn't work as well for layering, but for throwing on the chinos, denim, slacks or shorts - an oxford does the trick. I feel really comfortable, never under or overdressed and I think it looks good. For the in between months of spring, jackets and slacks from these mentioned labels will fill the spaces and patterns for me. I know it's not really that exciting but a great pair of loafers, oxfords or sneakers paired with a wrinkled oxford shirt is enough for me.

I dropped by the Kitsune retail spot in Paris today and met some of the people involved they were in the middle of preparing some of the spring summer collection titled " Somebody Somewhere." While some great fall pieces were still hanging, now at 50% off - the spring collection has some really nice stuff to it. As most of you readers know, I'm a bit anti-exterior branding, so some of the sweaters and polos aren't my favorite ever. BUT some of the blazers and button downs are. Their shirts are made in Italy, have perfect collars and great patterns. The wool blazers from the winter seasons are really nice, but I'm even more excited about the poplin spring look. With light blues and pinks, the looks run most similarly to Mjolk in some styles, but definitely differ in cuts and actual pieces. It looks like Kitsune might have another Pierre Hardy collaboration for the spring with a low top version of their desert boot. Not 100% on that, but I can hope for now.
