Fashion is most interesting when two contrasting elements are combined together, and J. Crew men’s designer Frank Muytjens has successfully accomplished this.

For Muytjens, the fall is all about syncing preppy with work wear, the rural with the urban, cool colors with warm colors, and the sophisticated with the casual.

Aside from narrower lapels and industrialized cardigans, some stand out looks include the pairings of utility shirts with tweed sport coats and jean jackets underneath suiting jackets.

“The guy for fall I was thinking could be a mix between Montgomery Clift, Jacques Cousteau and Joe Strummer,” said Muytjens.
