Men know women want them to dress stylishly; unfortunately, men don't know what that style is, and actually asking a woman "Does this look good on me?" cancels out the fact that, you might very well already look totally F-able. Get women's help without asking, with gear from Station 8.
Founded by three 20-something Montreal women, S8's Fall/Winter collection is blowing exclusively into Chicago with the sort of gear ladies love to see worn on dudes-in-bands, but executed subtly enough that you won't look like a member of Tokyo Police Club raiding the Rainbo photobooth. Outerwear standouts include the raglan-style, slim-fit "Ando" blazer w/ extra long cuffs, small metal buckles connecting shoulder to sleeve, and front-pocket leather detailing; the black, 3/4-length "Angelo" wool coat, whose top left pocket sports a slim, buttoned strap that extends to the shoulder; and the charcoal "Giancarlo" coat, with a zipper-obscuring, Y-shaped flap secured by metal buttons, and soft cotton lining that's double-layered inside the hood (ensuring no one's frost-biting your steez). Also at p+L: slim-fit, unadorned polos; the black-and-white checked "Tonio" longseeve button-up w/ black piping, four-button cuffs, and a right-sleeve pocket for cig-stashing; and the black, Western-inspired, 3/4-sleeve "Sergio", with a b&w fleur-de-lis pattern on the shoulders, breast pockets, and small bands around the arms, marking the dangerous territory of your biceps far more gracefully than Urlacher-esque barbed wire.
p+L's the only US shop stocking Station 8, and should be ordering even more goods soon, a re-up that might include the brand's outlying garish piece, "Fabio Top Balls", a longsleeve tee covered chest-to-waist with the image of a large-caliber bandolier; then again, if women really want you wearing Fabio's sac, maybe you're better off rocking Zubaz.
