This understated collection was packed with slightly oversized looks inspired by work wear — the sort of clothes that a young man might borrow from his dockworker father’s closet. There were wool car coats in sober shades of navy, gray, or army green, often worn with ribbed and nubby knits or striped sweaters. For more formal outings, Howell favored tone-on-tone, softly constructed suits, and jackets with patch pockets. While this collection will appeal to many a man, it’s clear that Howell is speaking to a stylish young urbanite who prefers his clothing to murmur chic rather than scream it.
