You look to boutique clothiers for edgy, distinct outfits, but their limited lines sometimes leave you with only one edgy, distinct outfit -- allowable only if you're a superhero. For one-stop closet diversification, check out All Saints' new Autumn/Winter line.
Saints is a UK-based brand with gear fit for any social venture, whether it's a reckless night on the town, or the Skull & Bones initiations you infiltrate under the guise of "Crab-Cake Distributor." Starting with Bowie- and Elvis-inspired tees, the new collection spans more than 70 unique pants, polos, vests, pea coats, hoodies, belts, shoes, scarves, dressy blazers, intelligence-conveying cardigans...and a puffy white button-down begging for an epaulet of parrot droppings. Every piece is lightly marinated with mod-rock influence, recalling a time when Roger Daltrey would pull on his finest duds before launching a bowling ball through a tube television.
About the only thing you can fault Saints for is its limited man-jewelry selection, highlighted by a Satanic ram-skull ring -- allowing you to deftly switch alter-egos from Same-Shirt-All-The-Time Boy to the far more palatable Dr. One-Ring.
