2013 NYFW Best of the Rest

So you've already seen what I thought to be the Top 10 looks of fashion week. But there were also quite a few looks that while they weren't strong enough to make the list, but they had some singular pieces that packed a powerful punch and deserved to be noted. Picking the original top 10 from over 40 collections was tough. Here's what ended up on the cutting room floor. I call these the "Best of the Rest"...

The look on the left was probably one of the closest out of these to not make it to the top 10. Lovely suit. Footwear doesn't do it justice. And on the right, that camel-colored coat is hitting all the right notes.

 Billy Reid
Love the pattern on the sweater.

Elie Tahari 
Love the non-wool peacoat. A good changeup.

Elie Tahari
Deep olive toggle coat.

This fire red baseball jacket will surely turn heads.

Carlos Campos
This jacket isn't for everyone. But on the right guy it will do wonders. Awesome cut! And the buttons are perfect.

David Hart
This plaid sport coat is all kinds of right. 

This is a more utilitarian alternative to the trench coat for when the weather gets wet and nasty.

The small dose of leather on the sleeves is perfect.

 Joseph Abboud
Love this moto jacket. Very clean look to it.

The sweater underneath has a collegiate feel with the bold yellow stripe.

 Mark McNairy
One of the slimmest down coats I've ever seen.

 Michael Bastian
Another toggle coat I'm in love with.

Another look the could have easily made it to the Top 10. The windowpane pattern is so elegant.

 N. Hollywood
Disregard the weird hat and focus on this beautiful brown leather jacket.

 General Idea
Funky design on this jacket sweater mashup, and I like it. 

Ralph Lauren 
Mr Americana delivers a razor sharp shearling lined jacket in what looks like the softest leather ever.

Shades of Grey
Another brand giving their version of the pea coat.

Shipley and Halmos
Its hard to screw up something in black watch. The historic military pattern makes almost anything look good.

Shipley and Halmos 
This shirt is pretty magnificent. I can have a lot of fun mixing and matching this one.

Steven Alan
Beautiful suit covered by a hefty bag.

Tim Coppens
Patterned shirts are trending. Thank Givenchy for that.

Todd Snyder
What is that? Velvet?

Tommy Hilfiger 
Hilfiger's all-plaid-show had some hits and misses. This one was a little bit of both. The patterns on the jacket and trousers are too close to try to wear together in my opinion. They would be great solo pieces.

Humor of the week....
Jeremy Scott
If the Mayweather vs Pacquiao ever happens, (which it probably wont) this should totally be Pacman's pre-fight getup.
