Date: October 17 Venue: Lord & Taylor – Fifth Avenue
Celebrating their newly renovated men’s floor was Lord & Taylor with a football bonanza event, hosted by GQ magazine Executive Stylist Brett Fahlgren. A handful of gentlemen tried their luck at an Up Your Game raffle, the winner taking home two New York Jets football game tickets at MetLife Stadium and $125 spending money at the game. Victorinox rewarded guests with a built-on-site signature Swiss Army Knife with any Victorinox purchase. Stacked nicely beside folded sweaters and pants was the October 2013 issue of GQ magazine with actor Idris Elba speaking candidly about his journey to fame.
Lord & Taylor cares about philanthropy, proudly donating a portion of the event’s proceeds to help fund Career Gear, an organization dressing underprivileged men for the workforce. Reps from Rogue menswear caught up with Jesenia’s Goodie Bag. Based in New York, the company specializes in garment washed rumpled modern classics. Wire-treatment technology found in Rogue shirt packets and jackets allow the wearer creative mobility to style their own individual look; the result, a Downtown appeal with an Uptown feel.
GQ Style Expert Brett Fahlgren dishes his styling secrets, starting with Fall/Winter as he brings in the holiday season with Fair Isle sweaters and reminds us to unpack our thin wale corduroys. Another must-have on his list is the Ralph Lauren perfected tweed sports jacket with elbow patches, and a killer topcoat. Not just for Ivy League students, Brett insists we too can sport color-block University scarves… and why should Aussies have all the fun? From the outback of Australia to the shoe rack in your home with your very own suede desert boots. Foreseeing future trends, Brett suggests American Sportswear fashion in colorful, lightweight fabrics for Spring/Summer 2014, along with any style man-bag.
