Fashion Week has come to end, and I just have a couple more round up assignments to put together as I—and the rest of the North East—prepares for yet another snow storm this weekend.

Known for fun printed swimwear and use of bold colors, Mr Turk’s fall/winter 2014 collection has given a fresh Californian take on traditional preppy menswear. “Our inspiration for Mr Turk is always this sociable guy, someone who wants to go out. Whether it’s to a cocktail party or our to brunch, not someone who likes to stay at home,” says Creative Director Jonathan Skow at the presentation during New York Fashion Week.

Showing his fall/winter 2014 collection at the inaugural New York Men’s Day, designer David Hart told me his influence for the collection came from the late-fifties/early-sixties sci-fi show The Twilight Zone, and classic black and white television as a new medium back in it was entering its heyday.
Writing for a post on Details.com, we saw fitted tuxedos and suit jackets made of materials ranging from English silk to guncheck wool, as well as turtlenecks worn under jackets and round cracked eyewear (a nod to the perennial favorite episode “Time Enough at Last“).
