Let's be honest, New York can be a little boring but it's where the money is. While it may not set the style pages alight, look in your own wardrobe and I bet the majority is made up of American labels or their influence. American fashion has become so ubiquitous it's hard to see what is new or different. It has been the dominant force of dressing in menswear over the last 5 years, churning out American classic after reworked American classic but what it does do is make men look like men. Here are a few of TheChicGeek's top looks from the recent New York Fashion Week.
Trousers - We're going wide. Trousers have been blown up, but be carefully, the idea is to exaggerate not to look bigger than you are.

Norfolk Jacket - Large, prominent pockets on the outside and a belted detail, front and back, are the details to covert in this chic Victorian style jacket.

Michael Bastian - The interesting man's Tom Ford, Michael Bastian is the brand for luxe American classics with a humorous twist. We've always been massive fans of his line for GANT and now, with new production, his mainline is getting massive exposure.

Inside Elbow - The elbow patch has moved. Now situated in the arm and it's still looking rather good.

The round-neck, textured, chunky knit continues. Looks good here under a strong structured jacket.
