American men’s fashion had a triumphant week last week in the form of the inaugural New York Fashion Week: Mens.  Close to 60 designers participated with runway shows and presentations; energy and excitement filled the primary venue, Skylight at Clarkson Square.

Mostly male celebs, sports figures and fashion editors took over the front rows. Thanks largely to these dapper dressers and social media, a sartorial shift is occurring in America, and NYC, the fashion capital of the world, is on board and along for the ride.

It may well be a board ride too as so much of the design harkens West to California themes of Palm Springs and retro rock and roll and surfer dudes. Here (in no particular order) is a sampling of a few favorite looks.  Check out our Pinterest board #NYFWM ss2016 for more.
