As the fine frenzy of New York Fashion Week can attest, it's never to early to be in a spring state of mind. Steering men towards sandals, neutrals and cargos next season is LA-based Field Scout, whose spring/summer 2014 collection makes a convincing case for the surprisingly stylish, storage-expanding trousers. (Who knew?)
Influenced by classic military tailoring and utilitarian design, the two-year-old label looked to Morocco for its layer-ready line of alpaca wool cardigans, subtle paisley-print shirts, leather trim bomber jackets and more. And in a nod to its nomadic mindset, the brand literally weaves the latitude and longitude of its worldly inspiration into its designs.
Hitting shelves next February, the metro-minded collection ranges from $55 to $69 for basic tanks and tees, $139 to $269 for button-down shirts, $169 to $999 for outerwear and $119 to $299 for swimwear and bottoms.
Into their global-inspired gear? Find the brand's current wares at American Rag, Fred Segal Man and Ron Herman.
