Sometimes trends take a LONG time to come around, and since my 18-months ago Brandish post about Italian ‘Sartorialist’ men using military jackets as a stylish cover for their suits, the trend has become a familiar item in womenswear and come back to hit us as a definite menswear street current.

So, my jaunt to New York for at least some of fashion week has come to an abrupt end and I’m left wondering where my next cup of Stumptown coffee is coming from. I did a quick whizz around my beloved downtown menswear boutiques (summed up below) yesterday afternoon, and…

Absolutely loving these ASOS print shorts. VERY Dries Van Noten and also so much like the batik-print shorts I bought last summer from UNIS in New York that I’m prescribing myself from ordering. Probably. Being limited edition these lovelies are all but sold out.. and if you are a 36 waist you probably shouldn’t be contemplating them. I particularly love the Ikat print with its suggestion of Balinese elegance. Of course, in Britain Summer is a myth, not seen for many years. So you’ll have to wear them elsewhere on your travels. Perfect for stepping over that steaming New York manhole cover and ducking the water hydrant as you stride out for the evening, tote over bronzed shoulder bared in pastel vest en route to that fabulous bar on Elizabeth Street or joining friends on their roof in Williamsburg. Dream on dream on..
