Eric Newland
Owner, Designer One, Larchmont

I can’t wait to wear...
Color. Bright oranges and citrus greens, and pastel blues, greens.
The one thing I’m buying is...
A lightweight, tailored blazer to pair with jeans. It’s got to be a funky plaid.
Inspiring my look is…
My age. Being in good shape gives me an opportunity to buy clothes that make me feel confident, happy, and relaxed.
This season, no stylish gentleman should go without…
Pants that are really fitted to your body. Good, comfortable walking shoes, too.

Rick Fortuna
Owner, Italy Direct Menswear, Katonah

I can’t wait to wear…
My unconstructed cotton sport coat. Inspiring my look…
Are the men in Milan; they know how to make classic look fashionable.
This season, no stylish gentleman should go without…
A new suit!

Owner, Soxfords, Pound Ridge

The one thing I’m buying is…
Penny loafers and oxford shoes. I love the handcrafted quality behind Oak Street Bootmakers.
Inspiring my look…
Is vintage-looking gear. A great example is L.L.Bean Signature, where they re-introduce items from the early 20th century, with a more modern fit.
This season, no stylish gentleman should go without…
Fun accessories. It’s a throwback to when guys went out of their way to incorporate bits of personality into their wardrobes.

Fitted clothes that are still comfortable. I like Vince.

One great slim-fitted suit from Canali; and interesting hardware on their wrists [like stacked men’s bracelets].

My peak-lapel tuxedo.
The one thing I’m buying is…
