The question of costume versus actual clothing is an astute one when reviewing the E. Tautz Fall 2014 Menswear Collection. Cut sportswear styles including baggy trousers and Velcro sneakers are modernized with fine fabrics and clean cut tailoring. Studied plays of pattern, scale and bold color are total assets that set this collection apart, along with a giant cross motifs and abstract ET monograms employed to stunning effects in mustard and other fall-inspired colors.

Scarlet and Prussian blue are used as accents in silk scarves, ties and also employed in larger statement pieces. While alternative graphic details come in broad athletic stripes trimming overcoats and parkas, a felt perfecto came scrawled with hand-stitched cartoons in an affirmation of the designer's soft hand and eye for detail.
