Target Men Fall 2008 Collection

NEW YORK, Aug 8, 2008 / FW/ — In a very hot summer that is so dry that wildfire advisory is in effect in most places, it’s raining men at Target… good fashion for men to be precise.

Proposing timeless and tailored silhouettes from Keanan Duffty for Target®, Mossimo®, Merona®, Cherokee®, Utility® and C9 by Champion® – Target offers updated suiting for the workplace as well as casual basics and staple layering pieces ideal for everyday wear.

Starting with the pinstripe vests and button-downs with skinny ties and punk-rock edge from Keanan Duffty for Target to the classically elegant glen plaid suiting separates with a variety of oxfords in blues and pastel purples, Target’s suit offerings allow men to mix and match the latest style and find the perfect suit.

For a casual trendy look, there are the buffalo plaid shirt jackets and hoodies in exploding prints and pair them with vintage-rinse Mossimo jeans or Merona 5-pocket corduroy pants.

Mix them with Keanan Duffty’s silk ties with preppy prints such as collegiate crests and bold stripes; you get unexpected bursts of color. Hats and scarves in cashmere and wool blends offer additional warmth and create a style statement for the morning commute.

From an assortment of tees, polos and thermal Henleys in lighter fabrics that are ideal for layering to shirts and jackets that have been updated with epaulets, with the Merona calvary military shirt, a man can make a fashion statement at first glance.

Men can exercise their eye for style at the gym in the latest styles from the C9 by Champion collection, renowned for technologically advanced performance apparel.

Accessories complement both preppy and rocker personalities, from an oversized houndstooth print backpack and conservative ties to chain wallets and edgy belt buckles. A distressed leather belt in brown can be dressed up or down, and plaid cashmere scarves are a season staple that instantly updates any outfit. Studded wallets, leather cuffs and knit skinny ties create an urban look for the fashion-focused man.

The Target men’s fall 2008 collection will be available at most Target stores nationwide and at Target.com.
