Thomas Balint Spring 2014

I love a guy that can look put together AND casual.  Thomas Balint, a designer showing at Toronto's World MasterCard Fashion Week showed a collection that did just that. 

Thomas Balint is the third generation in his Hungarian family to take up the tailoring trade.  His runway collection featured expertly draped jackets and coats that had a relaxed attitude, but sharp fit and sleek collars.  The lapel shapes were variations on traditional silhouettes, elongated, notched shawl collars and distorted peak lapels.  The color palette was a range of off-black like warm grey, deep eggplant and navy.  This was a great way for the cosmopolitan gentleman who is used to dressing in black every day to branch out and add a bit of texture and colors to their repertoire.  I know as a Gothamite that is a trick I like to use myself in my own wardrobe.

Guys, what is your key to looking groomed and casual at the same time?
