I have to say that I wasn’t too much of a fan when I first saw these. I found the zipper placement to be very awkward at the hips. Though worn slouchy it somehow makes the zippers look more appealing. Click here to purchase these jeans at Shopbop for $218.

No one shows the androgyny in there clothes quite like IRO. Each season they show how they can make the same pieces for both men and women; and make them look just as great on both sexes. For the Fall 2012 season it is the sweater above. You can see that both main images include a knit sweater with the same paneling and color.
The sweater is not the only style that IRO has to offer for the men. They also have a stripe knit, as well as a red knit. You can also find quite a few denim pieces this season as well, from shirts to jeans. IRO reiterated the classic denim shirt this season and featured them with leather patch pockets at the front. They also have amazingly tailored pieces (like they do every season) that will have many guys clamoring each other for. You can see the collection below.
Here is the look book that I look forward to each season, IRO. Like the seasons prior, Fall 2012 is perfectly tailored, always French, and always chic. Their classic pieces were reinterpreted with prints, different skins, and the detail that they cannot go without…SEQUINS.
Gone this season is the heavy distressing. You can find their classics such as knit sweaters, slouchy and skinny jeans, perfect cut outerwear, and leather covered in prints and/or color. This is another collection that IRO hit right again. They are pieces that are timeless and pieces that you want more of. You can see the full collection below.
Levi’s Made & Crafted has combined one of the biggest trends of this season, Ombre, with their Empire fit. If you don’t know about their Empire fit, it is a tapered skinny jean with a 9″ mid-rise.
These come in four cool color combinations to choose from. There is the Apple (above) that starts off as green and gradually fades into a cream tone. This one is very reminiscent of a Granny Smith Apple. There is the Lilac that starts off as lilac (obviously) on the top and gradually becomes Periwinkle at the bottom. There is the Mustard that starts off as a bold, you guessed it, yellowy mustard and becomes a paler shade of yellow. The most versatile out of the four is, I think, the Red Ombre. It has a really rich red at the top and fades to an ashy washed out red at the bottom. Which are your favorites? You can click here to purchase all these styles at Net-A-Porter.
