The red carpet, flashing bulbs and television’s most famous faces. This can only mean one thing… It’s the 2016 Emmy Awards in Los Angeles and if you are lucky enough to attend all the glitz and glamour, you better be ready to look your best. Anyone who is interested in men’s fashion will have their eyes set on the newest men’s formal collections this year. The runways had one thing in common this season — boldness and confidence.  Classic design elements like shawl collars and traditional colors compliment new prints coming in from Tom Ford, Zegna, Canali and Gucci (to name a few), the formal look has been upgraded with cross-stitch colors and deep, rich textures. With a classic shirt serving as a flat counterbalance and adding a textured bow tie, colorful tux pant and/or dinner jacket, these combinations can only take this traditionally boring penguin look to the next level. What a great way to start the fall season.
