Gucci for You

Think You Can’t Pull Off Bold Clothing? Here’s How


Gucci designs clothes for the brave, and designer Alessandro Michele has transformed the fashion house from has-been to cutting-edge with flashy, irreverent creations. The latest for Gucci — a capsule collection with Mr Porter — drops today.

For most guys, however, the Gucci x Mr. Porter collection might seem unapproachable. Fear not — there are ways to incorporate Mr. Michele’s designs into your wardrobe. Here are five suggestions for doing just that.

Pied-De-Poule Fine Wool V-Neck


Perhaps the easiest piece of the collection to wear. Keep it simple with gray trousers, a white oxford and creeper shoes for a London rocker–inspired look.

Skeleton Jacquard Long-Sleeve Shirt


Throw this one under a gray or navy suit for a subtle hint of rebellion. Some people wear fun ties; be the guy who wears a fun shirt.

Marco Formal Jersey Jacket and Pants


Wear these pieces together as a suit to punch up an on-the-town ensemble. A simple white dress shirt — no tie — is your friend here, and a pair of black loafers or oxfords will anchor the outfit and keep it from becoming too outré.


Knitted Vest With Skull Jacquard


Gucci’s making sweater vests cool again. It’s best to let the skulls and the bright green backdrop do the talking, so keep things neutral with classic denim and a blue or pink oxford.

Brixton Collapsable-Back Loafer


These bright-yellow shoes are not for the faint of heart. In order to pull them off, the rest of your outfit needs to be understated. Pair them with a simple white polo and light-blue denim.
