Best menswear new releases this week, Jul 29, 2022
Decisions, decisions: life is full of them. My newest fork on the road comes in the form of color. I recently completed the drywall in my ongoing home improvement journey and now I need to figure out what color to paint my living space. A matte white seems practical. Admittedly, it’s the safest choice I go back to every time I look at samples at Home Depot, which has become my second home lately. But my gut is telling me to try something different, break the mold and reach for something new. A Frida Kahlo blue and sea foam green maybe. They’re literally out of the ordinary, but as I’ve learned, sometimes the biggest risks yield the biggest rewards.
This brings me to the releases of the week, a selection of styles that may seem risky at first but will serve you well in the long run. A quilted shacket with a really rich print from Levi’s and Denim Tears, for example, will turn heads in the best possible way. Ditto the sandals from Suicoke and Missoni, a crazy hat from Birds of Condor and Coogi and bright, cheeky sneakers from Salmon and Bodega. J.Crew also has a range of fashion-forward styles, courtesy of its new menswear creative director, Brenden Babenzien. Of course, some of you prefer the busiest road – and that’s totally fine. You all have an elegant navy blue polo shirt by Jacques and trousers from Nili Lotan’s first men’s collection. Todd Snyder also has a new capsule that’s safe and summer-ready.
Whichever route you choose — or, if you’re like me, whatever color you choose for your walls — do it with conviction. Cop the stuff you feel is right in your stomach.

For more than a decade, Nili Lotan has offered some of the most elegant basics on the market. Season after season, the designer takes a robust item and refines it to make it better for today’s consumer. It’s no wonder she’s gained a cult following among fashion insiders. And this week Lotan presented her first men’s collection. She’s applied the same ethos that has made her women’s collection an industry favorite to a collection of elegant, no-fuss separates that will live in your closet for years.
Levi’s and Denim Tears have teamed up again. This time purveyor of some of the most iconic jeans and designer Tremaine Emory have created a collection that explores the rich history of the African diaspora in America by honoring the heritage and craft of the Gullah Geechee.
