Think Lines And High-Impact Patterns This Spring
The wares to keep your look as on point as you are this quarter.
Create your own winning look with high-impact pieces like this stylish patterned sport coat.
Stay ahead of the characterless, humdrum suit-and-tie pack with tailored, textured, color-saturated separates from the Spring 2014 Collection by Thomas Dean. Themes include Surfing in the City—sport coats in Loro Piana fabrics, cotton-gauze shirts, and rainproof quarter-zip sweaters in red, white, and blue; Office Space—linen shirts and seersucker jackets in pink, lilac, and yellow; and Country Chap (“from the conference room to the country house”)—Jacquard multi-stripe shirts and featherweight vests for layering in green, olive, and berry. Challenge: Mix a vibrant micro-paisley button-down ($165) with suede wingtips ($420), eye-catching thanks to a pop of mint on the laces and soles. Find Thomas Dean at Rothman's in Scarsdale, Black Squirrel Outfitters in Pelham, Nordstrom in White Plains, and www.thomasdeanco.com.

Norwalk the Walk
Just in time for impromptu tennis games and spring-fever-driven weekend jaunts comes the Norwalk Collection from Ghurka, the handmade-leather-goods company with a factory in the eponymous city in neighboring Fairfield County. Synonymous with rich, discerning taste, Ghurka introduces modern styling to its gun-slip and $6,500-golf-bag game with eight new carriers crafted from military-grade herringbone twill, walnut leather, and performance-ready canvas lining. The luxury collection includes classics like the only duffel you’ll ever need ($585) and matching dopp kit ($185), and a backpack ($585) sophisticated enough to take on an urban adventure.
