A short black wool jacket with a pointed front, worn with a white wing-tip collar, had an impeccable graphic punch on both sexes. The wide-legged trouser with a pleat implanted toward the outer leg was an improved reprise of a pant he showed last season, a refreshingly flattering alternative to the predictable skinnies. Meanwhile, shirts with subtle strips of lace running down the front and cutaway, high-collared jackets had something of a goth attitude about thembut minimal goth. Which is a good thing, because Lynn's prices are luxe-level, and these pieces are designed more to be keepers than overtly styled seasonal fashion. Even after two seasons, it seems clear that Lynn will be developing his cut by increments onlyand the interesting thing is, that feels right.
