CA designer Jade Howe's Spring line offers rocker buttondowns, blazers with geisha-print-linings, plaid trousers and weathered jeans, cardigan hoodies, and tees from Howe-conceived bands like Nagasaki Johnny and the Bombs (they're blowing up!). To further help your steez, Jade shares his thoughts on guys' fashion miscues, easy fixes, and dragging jeans behind race cars.
On his own fashion low point: I caught myself wearing a Mark Ecko tracksuit, then ended up at J. Crew buying some godawful pumpkin spice shirt with a sweater, and I just said, enough's enough, we've got to f*cking do something about this.
On avoiding clown-dom: Everyone wants to be noticed, but our message is to push the style a little more subtly and let your overall look speak for you. Guys go to the mall, they buy something that expresses what they relate to, and I think it makes them look a little more clownish than they need to.
