The French have always been known for their cold disdain of American culture, but what if that was just a calculated move designed to keep us from realizing they're actually madly in love with Alex P. Keaton? Proving they are, A.P.C.
For their summer line, the Franco-clothiers have unleashed a line tilting heavily into a Euro-shaded view of 80s prep (woven belts, narrow-fit khakis, fitted seersucker and oxford shirts), pretty much what you would get if French designers spent 12 months watching dubbed Family Ties episodes whilst vomiting into their mouths due to Tina Yothers. To cover your bony shoulders, they've got single breast pocketed "narrow" button-ups in either a marine blue texturized, lightweight seersucker or a lightweight broadcloth, multi-color madras, and black or grey slim-fitting cotton sport coats w/ a "very subtle" texturized "Prince of Wales check pattern"...so, definitely not his ears. For your bottom half, they've just unveiled the Petit Standard Corduroy, a Frenchily named-take on their time-tested New Standard style w/ a lower rise, more-fitted leg, and blend of stretch cord material, along with a five-pocket, button-fly jean version made w/ Japanese selvedge and painstakingly hand-processed to create a "worn-out" look, basically producing a denim Courtney Love.
If you prefer other habiliments, they've also got sunglasses, hats (ballcap, mesh-backed, and police-styled), and obscure bands like Housse de Racket, Koko von Napoo, and The Teenagers printed on limited edition t-shirts, which'll have you looking anything but Michael Gross.
