As I’ve written before, your wardrobe should speak to who you are; your personality, your individuality, your lifestyle, etc.
Michael Macko gets it. He’s a seasoned menswear executive with over 20 years experience in the fashion, retail and media industries. Currently he is the editor-at-large for Valet Magazine and a sought-after menswear stylist and consultant. Previously he held posts as the fashion director of Details Magazine as well as the vice president of fashion, PR & special events for Men’s & Home at Saks Fifth Avenue. Needless to say, he understands this business and has developed a personal style that is all his own.
We caught up with Michael on Manhattan’s beautiful Highline to check out how he’s injecting some personal flare into his wardrobe as he transitions to Fall.
1. The coolest part can be on the inside
What I love about Michael is his passion and appreciation for a new design with an innovative and unique backstory, as we can see in many of the pieces from his one-of-a-kind wardrobe.
“This is a nice transitional outfit for those in-between days of early Fall… I love corduroy and wool shorts and wear wear them until it’s probably too cold. This pair by Michael Bastian is fully lined in shirting fabric that peeks out slightly at the bottom as if you’re wearing long boxers.”
“The bag is from Focsle, Alex Carleton’s new gallery in Provincetown, it’s re-purposed from extremely rare vintage duffel bags and there were only 9 of them made.”
“The jacket is from the new Steve McQueen Collection by Barbour. It’s the classic quilted Barbour, but slightly re-invented for a new season: shorter and trimmer with an iconic photo lining of McQueen himself.”
