Mark McNairy New Amsterdam<br />
Orange is on fire. We’ve been seeing burnt orange all over the place this week, but we only saw street wear and tailoring combined this well at Mark McNairy New Amsterdam.

A mood swing from Bastian’s preppy portfolio, this shot proves a little austerity goes a long way. (Johnny Depp, is that you?) The hat and the hair may be codependent, but if you’ve got the locks it’s worth a shot.

Green gowns consistently put ladies on the best dressed list, so the hue should do the same for the boys. There were plenty of green suits where this one came from, so no need for envy.

Sweat pants and lace ups? You bet. The tailoring sweat pants have been getting lately (like the pair in this Beat-inspired collection) means they’ve been showing up in places they were previously barred.
Well, that’s all she wrote. No more blurry runway pictures in your Instagram feed this season. Orange you kind of bummed?
It could be it caught our eye most because it’s the swatch of choice for safety vests, but it seemed we saw a whole lot of that colour for Fall 2013 at Men’s Fashion Week in New York. We’re not talking about the same neon hue we might have seen a couple years back, like that Jil Sander suit (you know the one). This was a burnt orange, and it was everywhere from a Mackintosh at Mark McNairy New Amsterdam to a window pane on a grey double breasted suit at Michael Bastian.
Speaking of the devil, one of the preppiest collections got a little moodier this year. Bastian’s designs were kind of like looking into Ichabod Crane’s closet, if Ichabod Crane was an Eighties arts student (Paging Baz Luhrmann!) Wide-brimmed hats and baseball jackets got plenty of runway time across the board and expect to see a lot more green suits for Fall 2013.
