Men have a lot to look forward to this spring, thanks to designer Michael Bastian, who recently launched an exclusive line of suits (and their accoutrements) for Barneys New York. Modern and approachable in both design and price, the line boasts impeccable tailoring, perfect proportions and the same attention to detail and fine Italian fabrics that characterize his signature line.
So whether you’re looking to update your 9-to-5 wardrobe, dress up your dinner attire or simply stand out in a sea of rumpled khakis, look no further. But you’d better act fast because word has already started to spread—just take a look at the rave reviews in GQ and Simply Refined.
Michael recently spent an evening at Barneys styling 11 spot-on looks to give you some ideas about how to put it all together. The very talented Matt Albiani photographed the lookbook, while the very dapper Eduardo Ramos modeled it all.
We then sat down with the designer in his New York showroom to chat about the collection, the inspiration and his take on American menswear.
