The '80s are always coming back, from hipster chicks sporting Tootsie specs, to the news being dominated by Libya and some befuddled crazy making defiant speeches on TV, although eventually Gary Busey will be fired from Celebrity Apprentice. For some high-end style boasting '80s inspiration, check out the spring drop from Adam Arnold.
With made-to-measure styles handsewn to wrap you perfectly following a personal fitting appointment, Arnold's rocking a new collection inspired in part by his love of '80s ESPRIT catalogs, resulting in clean-lined upscale shirting, ties, and pants featuring simple-looking but difficult-to-execute "architectural elements", which're frankly tough to get Wright. Some of this season's awesomeness:
Basic Dress Shirt: A straight-ahead going-out jam in pinpoint oxford fabric offers covered plackets on both the front and cuffs and a splash of avocado beneath the collar, leading Chili's to mix your shirt with cilantro, housemade pico de gallo, and jalapeño to produce the best Fire-Grilled Corn Guacamole ever.
Chevron Shirts: These short 'n long sleeve button-ups in pink or blue chambray are slim but not overly fitted, and on the cuff and yoke, a shiny v-shaped detail made of sateen -- also Satan's 15-year-old son who can only muster up the sin of sloth.
Clam Bucket Pants: Totally uniquely, the front and rear pockets are basically one giant pocket separated by the hip seam and brass rivets, and Adam's also incorporated two front snap-down belt loops secured with copper buttons, which're easily pushed by calling them pigs.
Arnold's also built a few pieces for more brazen dudes, including a kimono-ish number called a haori featuring bold pixelated patches, as well as some serious short shorts, which's also an apt description of Busey's memories nowadays.
