Nothin’ like easing into the beginning of the week with a nice big sale from a nice big name.  To me, Thom Browne is all about creating the modern urban dandy from a prep vantage…except, his world of prep doesn’t stem from the one shared by Ralph Lauren and the horseback-riding polo-playing Thors of the Aryan race…instead, Thom’s is darker, a bit more subversive, less sun-kissed…think forgotten corner in the basement level of some Ivy League library…  Thom himself is such an attractive man…he’s every bit the perfect face for his label…


ANYWAY, sale ends tomorrow night…so get in there and buy buy buy…

A few of my favorite looks from the sale after the jump:

The skirt suit always generates a strong reaction online…often more negative than positive…but the look is formal and tons unique at the same time…definitely a hit if you’ve got the gravitas to pull it off…

This overcoat is pretty fab in character…the fur trim and the military-esque nuances in the details…

And lastly, this jacket just has a unique appeal to me.  The black piping/detailing definitely makes this even more of an eye-catcher on top of its already interesting shape and design.  The belted detail is classy, as are the pleatings in the back…
