Male Box. The First Layer Of Fall

September 9, 2009 • Male Box

Labor Day marks the official end of summer and the long holiday weekend is for fashion folk the perfect time to do their wardrobe chores.
It’s time to put away those summer whites. Tennis whites are of course
the exception and, personally, I’ll be sporting my optic white RLX
tennis shorts until the end of the US Open. That’s after the beginning
of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week here in New York for the fashion
calendar obsessed among you. My previous thigh baring homage to the US
Open on the first day of fashion week was simultaneously praised by the
style watchers on numerous fashion websites and panned by a certain
“second in a two-horse race” New York daily newspaper who shall remain
nameless. Who knows what acclaim – or infamy – my slightly longer shorts will bring?

The official start of fall is the Autumnal Equinox on September 22,
but who can possibly wait that long to start wearing all the delicious
clothes that were offered in the Fall/Winter 2009 shows? An Indian
summer may foil your plans to appear at Fashion Week in that ultraluxe
Prada mink and cable knit cashmere number, but that doesn’t mean you
can’t participate in the return of the cardigan.
The cardigan
sweater was named for the 7th Earl of Cardigan, a British military
commander of the early 19th century. Since then, the cardigan has
become a staple of every fashion maven’s wardrobe and the perfect
transitional piece for those awkward months at the beginning of both
fall and spring. Yarn weight, colors and patterns dictate which of
these easy-to-wear sweaters are seasonally appropriate.
