Let’s throw things back to the late ’90s for a moment, shall we? Millennial men may have some fond — or maybe not so fond — memories of dragging their feet through the local mall as their mom shopped for her chic, business casual work attire and what’s now come to be known as the iconic “mom jeans.” If this sounds familiar, it was probably also one of the last times the brand New York & Company crossed your mind.
Well, it’s a new world, bay-bee, because not only are shopping malls increasingly becoming a relic of the past, but the once women’s-only fashion retailer has now put out a line of men’s apparel for the very first time! And we’ve got to say, the collection is looking damn stylish with its easy, cool vibe that’s absolutely fit for the city (regardless of where you actually live).
New York & Company’s men’s collection is full of your everyday essentials — like tees, henleys, and jeans — in stylishly on-trend cuts and colors. Then, they have everything from polos and sweaters to soft fleece hoodies and joggers, so you can add a little more polish to your work days, then kick back in style on the weekends. Plus, there’s even a selection of handsome jackets to help you make this fall your most fashionable one yet, and a variety of bags and backpacks so you can look like the ultimate trendsetter as you tote your things around.
Crafted from quality fabrics, each piece is designed to provide an impeccable, long-wearing fit so you can feel both comfortable and confident as you face each day. And did we mention that the entire collection is super affordable? The price point is so nice, you’ll be tempted to restock your whole wardrobe with these easy-to-wear styles that exude an effortlessly cool vibe.
But there’s no need to take our word for it! To show you what we mean, we’ve picked out some of our favorite pieces from the freshly launched New York & Company men’s collection to inspire your next closet upgrade. (And, for what it’s worth, we just know that these styles would be totally mom-approved.)
Men’s Colorblock V-Neck Perfect Tee
This wardrobe staple gets a cool upgrade with a chic V-neck and an eye-catching, two-color design in contrasting hues. The fitted tee has just a touch of spandex in its fabric blend for added comfort, and it would pair just as well with jeans or shorts as it would with chinos.
Men’s Long-Sleeve Henley Perfect Tee
As the weather cools down a bit, you’re likely to turn to styles with longer sleeves, and this henley fits the bill perfectly thanks to its classic design and versatile styling appeal. Add some jeans and boots, and layer on a cool jacket and you’ll have the perfect look for a casual night out with friends.
Men’s Contrast Seam Short-Sleeve Polo
With its crisp, pointed collar and contrast piping, business casual has never looked as good (or been as effortless to style) as this on-trend polo with a dark pair of denim, or coordinated with chinos and chukkas.
Men’s Cable-Knit Crewneck Pullover Sweater
Crisp and cool fall days call for apparel that’s suitably comfy and stylish — all at once — and this crewneck cable-knit sweater hits all the right notes. It’s a classic style that can be dressed up or down, but either way, its tailored fit ensures that you look well put-together at all times.
Men’s Skinny Fit Hyper Stretch Jean – Light Wash
Sure to become your next favorite pair of denim, these mid-rise jeans feature a skinny leg and hyper stretch fabric to provide the ultimate comfort combined with impeccable, on-trend style. (Not to mention that classic, medium blue wash is bound to pair well with anything in your closet.)
Men’s Relaxed Fit Hyper Stretch Jeans – Black Wash
If you prefer that your jeans have a more relaxed fit, this ultra-comfortable pair of denim makes for an effortless, goes-with-anything style staple in a distressed black wash. And, with a mid-rise, a straight leg, and a superior hyper stretch fabric blend, they look just as good as they feel.
Men’s Everyday Short
Summer’s fading away, but we’re not ready to say goodbye to warm-weather style just yet. Kick your casual ensembles up a notch in these mid-ride, straight-leg shorts in a comfy and classic design — and several neutral colors to suit your entire closet.
Men’s Soft Fleece Hoodie
Is there anything more comfortable — or easier to wear — than a hoodie? We think not, and this soft fleece number is certainly no exception. It’s available in a couple neutral colors, but we like this bright pop of red for adding some extra style, whether you’re lounging at home or headed out for a run.
Men’s Soft Fleece Pant
The loungewear you know and love gets treated to a sophisticated upgrade in these tapered-leg jogger pants with cuffed ankles, front slash pockets, and a drawstring waist for the perfect fit. Not only do they look good, but their soft fleece composition feels incredible, too.
Men’s Faux-Leather Biker Jacket
This fall, layer on the style in this versatile biker jacket with cool zipper and contrast-stripe detailing. Paired with a simple tee, jeans, and boots, it completes a classic look that’s effortless with just the right amount of edge.
