Even before you see the clothes, Los Angeles menswear label Endovanera (sounds like, but not limited to, "end of an era") has the makings of an all-American classic. Founded in 2005 by David Michael Hershberger and Mitch Moseley, the fledgling label can be traced back to an old Costa Mesa boathouse-turned-studio where Hershberger spent his time hand-sewing custom jeans and where the two designers had their first serendipitous meeting. "The modern design world has really begun to rely on computers for their design process," Mosely says. "To me, it is kind of like the difference between a DJ spinning on vinyl and spinning on a laptop. The laptop gets the point across but vinyl is just so much more real—it has more personality."

Stripe low crew $60
Solid Henley $68
Tailored Vest $145

Pour La Victoire is the shoe for the 20th century Marie Antoinette, a shopaholic's dream come true-a fashionable, well-made shoe at a great price. $165

The fashion world is having another fling with Scottish tartan, presently seen as sneakers or a vintage tam-o-shanter. The couple above, seen in Paris last month, were slipcovered in tartan, including their luggage. The man at right is wearing a trompe l'oeil kilt that was actually a bath towel bought at a Woolworth's in Edinburgh. He was at a Scottish dance at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York last week, where many of the guests, bottom row, were wearing tartan clothes. The same week, there was a party for the book Tartan: Romancing the Plaid at Saks Fifth Avenue with the authors, left, Doria de La Chapelle, seated, and Jeffrey Banks.

Here's what's happening and I'm not just saying so, it is.
2 key elements are going down masculine tailoring and luxury, classic silhouettes and fitted tailoring. Here's the top 5 season must haves.

Crisp White Shirt. As timeless as it is essential. Every guy needs one. Clean and simple can be dressed up or worn ( tucked in guys ) with jeans and a great jacket to look modern and sophisticated. Recommend - Drykorn for beautiful people - German precision tailoring

Dark Straight Jeans. Always a staple of any mans wardrobe, denim is evolving into a cleaner dressier look. Don't worry you can still pair it with a great tee for a more casual appearance. Pair it back with that crisp white shirt, jacket and the night is yours!
The brilliance of this jean is in its ability to be worn so many ways without looking like a mish mash of trends. Key point - Style over trend. Recommend - Acne - Raw denim Mic Fit

Cashmere Sweater. The epitome of luxe. Get a v-neck or cardigan in grey and it will last you years and is above trend. Again, effortless in its adaptability, it can be worn with your favorite jeans and a tee or add it to the pieces we mentioned above.
Not sure if you're following along but I see a total look emerging here, one that will gain you all the right kind of attention. Recommend- Loden Dager Cashmere VNeck Sweater
The Blazer- Another must have in every guys wardrobe. Either as a suit or paired back with jeans. Always go for a dark color, yes, we want to look slim too, ladies. You can rock this and go anywhere with the white shirt and jeans. Classic, masculine, and timeless.
Recommend- Loden Dager Brushed Twill Blazer

Great Shoes- Of course, you've heard it before your shoes are often the first thing people notice. That job interview, your date and so on. Here we are going to suggest an update on the trainer, fusing luxury materials, great craftsmanship, and traditional menswear shapes vs the bright colored attention grabbing sneaker trend of the past few years. Recommend - Alexander McQueen for Puma

There you have it!
