Jil Sander Fall 2013 collection boasts dapper pieces, which any strapping gentleman would look divine sporting. The designer, who previously defined the collection as ‘epic masculinity,’ chose to define masculine by taking inspiration from military garb.

Double-breasted coats in various color palettes and stand-up collars were some of the few pieces, which evoke subtle hints of military influences. Not afraid to use color, the designer used lots of Russian reds and military greens on a few pieces, which were mixed in with more classic and subdued color varieties.

Pin-striped suits were also prominent throughout the collection, which is very reminiscent of the gangster style of the 1940s and 50s. Finally, a more subtle plaid fading hombre pattern was also seen on a variety of coats. The Jil Sander Fall 2013 collection infuses a perfect amount of rugged and upscale vibe to its newest line.
