Karen Alberg Grossman picks some highlights from the Las Vegas trade shows, including socks from Per Pedes, knit sportcoats from brands like Bespoken, shoes from Bugatchi and more.
Harry Sheff: If the ESPN brand is powerful enough to prompt some people to name their children “Espn,” LND Neckwear’s ESPN tie collection will probably do quite well.
Harry Sheff: The Bird Dog Group’s booth at MRket showed Breuer neckwear in some beautiful silk/wool/cotton blends and colorful leather driving gloves from UK-based Dents.
Elise Diamantini: Ben Walker, a new outerwear brand created by Ben Olia and James Benton, is beautifully designed with details like asymmetrical zips, pops of neon and waxed cotton fabrics.
Harry Sheff: Put Well Bred, the newly launched Rochester, Minn.-based shoe brand, in the category of classics done right.
Elise Diamantini: Not new, but still relevant for fall ’13: camouflage and color were dominant trends at the Vegas shows.
