NEW YORK -- After flirting with a small men's capsule collection for the past seven seasons, Michael Kors is launching a full-scale men's sportswear line for fall retailing.

"This collection is about sporty luxury -- taking the classics, but streamlining them," said Kors. "The fit is not full-bodied, but not so narrow that an adult male can't fit into it."

The collection includes Kors's signature knits, boot-cut pants, slick blazers and suits in cashmere and merino wool. Trousers start at $145 retail, with cashmere sweaters priced from $350 to $795, blazers at $595 and outerwear from $495 to $3,500. The launch includes shoes, bags and eyewear, the latter is licensed to The Charmant Group, which also makes Kors's women's eyewear line.

Other than eyewear, everything in the new line is being produced in-house by Michael Kors LLC.
