Fashion is a woman’s game—or is it? All over town, menswear shops and bespoke studios are opening, flourishing, and proving that style isn’t just for the girls. From the rugged leanings of Fabric Row’s Armour to the handcrafted gems by Rittenhouse’s Commonwealth Proper, it’s never been easier—or more fun—for guys to stretch their sartorial wings. Here, what the well-dressed Philadelphia man will be wearing this spring.
On Jordan: Shirt, $79 at Suitsupply; Canali blazer, $995, Incotex pants, $325, and Prada belt, $210, all at Neiman Marcus, King of Prussia; John Lobb Redwood Parisian shoes, $1,295 at ToBox.
Style Tip: Take your jeans from utilitarian to sophisticated by choosing a dark wash and straight-leg fit, then pair with a smart jacket. (Bonus points for a colorful lapel pin.)
Sand blazer with attached pocket square, $595, Ralph Lauren Black Label Denim chambray shirt, $265, hook + ALBERT lapel pin, $30, and 7 For All Mankind straight-leg jeans, $178, all at Saks Fifth Avenue, Bala Cynwyd; Prada belt, $210 at Neiman Marcus; John Varvatos Luxe Chukka boots, $295 at ToBox.
Isaia blazer, $3,495, shirt, $450, and pants, $495, and Saks Fifth Avenue Collection tie, $128, and belt, $128, all at Saks Fifth Avenue.
Into the Blue
Style Tip: To instantly amp up your style game, try a fresh spin on the blue suit. A brighter shade of navy—aim for a few shades deeper than cobalt—stands out without the flash of pinstripes or pattern.
Isaia Napoli sport coat, $2,595, and Prada belt, $210, both at Neiman Marcus; Old School Shirt Makers New York French cuff shirt, $170 at Armour, Queen Village; Rag & Bone jeans, $195 at Boyds, Rittenhouse; Yanko Cambridge Suela double monk-strap shoes, $550, and pocket square, $100, both at ToBox.
Style Tip: Floral-print shirts are a leading trend this spring. Set off the bold patterns by pairing with solid, neutral basics.
Navy suit, $639 at Suitsupply; Old School Shirt Makers New York blue floral shirt, $170 at Armour; wool salmon herringbone tie, $125 at Commonwealth Proper; Ikire Jones pocket square, $65 at Ikire Jones; Komono Winston woven burgundy watch, $110 at Omoi Zakka Shop, Rittenhouse.
On Evander: Rag & Bone beach shirt, $290 at Sugarcube, Old City; Theory Marlo pants, $225 at Neiman Marcus; Tudor Heritage Black Bay diver watch, $3,100 at Govberg Jewelers; John Varvatos Luxe Chukka boots, $295 at ToBox.

Shades of Pale
Style Tip: Add a splash of style to a monochromatic look with textures (a nubby linen tie is unexpected) and subtle prints like a checked shirt.
