Tim Coppens is one of the most exciting menswear designers to emerge out of New York in the past several years and his recent Fall/Winter 2014 showing may have been his strongest yet. His experience as a sportswear designer for RLX has helped him carve out a unique aesthetic with his namesake brand, one that melds technical functionality with polished luxurious textiles.
I liked this sweater when it was featured in his Spring/Summer runway show and its even more impressive now that I get a chance to see the details up-close. The perforated holes in the leather and athletic style cuffs (and the fact that it’s made in the USA) set this apart from most of the sweatshirts out there. I love crewnecks both in the spring and in colder weather as they’re so easy to thrown on and take care of. Definetly recommend this piece and I’d suggest wearing this over jeans/sweatpants or classed up with slim-cut trousers.
