These days it's refreshing to see a menswear line that goes back to the basics. The Ballantyne Fall 2010 collection does just that. Don't get me wrong, the output is still stylish and well-made, but it sticks to the core classic pieces and mixes them together for a preppy look that also has a rough-and-tumble edge.

My favorite part of the Ballantyne Fall 2010 collection hands-down is the dapper, pinstriped ensemble (see first image in gallery). The rest of the line features sophisticated argyle sweaters and vests pieced with tougher looking trench coats, boots and denim.
