Chances are, you idolized your hot babysitter's boyfriend: a darkly charismatic man who'd absently tossel your hair, then do wondrous, disturbing things to her in your parents' bed -- but never in your bed, because this man was no scumbag.
You can't be that guy. But you can wear clothes that evoke his legend: Nicholas K, whose fall line's just now hitting stores.
Done up in an array of stygian hues ranging from black to coal, NK's sharp, slim-cut line manages to conjure the vibe of a brooding, urban marauder -- without cultivating the annoying goth look not popularized by the impossibly hot vampires from Blade. K's gear runs the gamut: narrow-cuffed button-downs, double-breasted, high-collared sweaters, double-zip hoodies, heavy field coats, bomber jackets, and the "Gunner Trenchcoat", perfect for flinging open to reveal your menacing bandolier of...beepers? Legwear includes cement-colored cargo pants and flat-front "city trousers"; everything uses premium materials like silk and wool melton (because there's marauding, and then there's marauding in silk and wool melton)
Be warned: a few pieces are truly dastardly -- suitable only for Snake Plisskin, whose eyepatched travails you once clung desperately to, as the upstairs bedroom bumped and squished with the sounds of your innocence being destroyed.
