Calvin Klein does what it does best -- Simplicity

Calvin Klein once said "We`re not doing outrageous fashion; I make sports clothes that are relatively conservative, clothes that everyone wears." And that continues to remain true up to this day. Starting as a coat shop in New York City in 1968, Calvin Klein has mastered the art of simplicity. He sets his own trends in a very subtle way. He makes his clothes accessible.

This season is no different. From the jackets to the trousers, each piece depicts clean lines and monochromatic tones. There wasn't anything exaggerated. Nor was there anything dramatic. The lines were very clean, understated, and simple. The tones were varying shades of grey and black. The fabrics ranging from wools, cottons and metallics.

"Nothing gets in the way of me and my Calvins" -- a tag line made famous by a 15 year old Brooke Shields in the company's earlier advertising campaigns. A lot of men can still probably say this especially with this collection that I guarantee will stand the test of time.

My favorite pieces this season are

White Round Collar Bomber Style Jacket, Slim cut Trousers

Leather Zip Up Hoodie

Metallic Suit

Single Button
Tux with Velour Notch Lapels
