Joseph Abboud Makes a Return to the Runway

Joseph Abboud came back to the runway for NYFW Men’s. The menswear designer and chief creative director of Tailored Row (formerly Men’s Wearhouse), created a collection that honors the American tradition of fine tailoring.

As the male consumer becomes increasingly fashion-conscious, it seems like the right time for Abboud’s collection, which takes inspiration from 1960s Savile Row and the peacock revolution in the United States.

The line is composed of luxurious fabrics, bespoke details and bold patterns. Abboud has come up with a new tailoring approach he calls Traced Fit, which accents the wearer’s physique while allowing for freedom and fluidity. The style features a broader shoulder, a fitted waist and a flared coat, for a contemporary take on the 60s.

The collection focuses on military details, including upturned cuffs, pieced lapels and vintage buttons. Fabrics includes washed velvet and cashmere and distressed wool prints from Italy and Scottish Harris Tweeds.

The line was entirely made at the Joseph Abboud Manufacturing Corp. in New Bedford, MA. All the runway accessories were also Made in the U.S., including hats by Albertus Swanepoel and footwear by Allen Edmonds.
