If men wanted an easy wardrobe for fall, none could get any easier than Zadig & Voltaire’s Fall 2019 Menswear line. Some might argue—and we relatively feel the same way— that this collection is borderline basic and boring. The quality of the clothes is its saving grace as one can’t deny the commendable construction on the semi-structured and streamlined outerwear, particularly the straightforward trench coats. The leather jackets are also quite noteworthy, but more on how fine and supple the materials are rather than the impression left by their normal cuts. From a retailer’s perspective, the brand struck gold in elevating basics with a tinge of streetwear edginess, allowing the customers to feel as if they bought into something more interesting than actually displayed. But the truth of the matter is, these are just plain clothes from Zadig & Voltaire—luxurious ones at that—but nothing more!
