SILAS take up a simple sportswear approach this season to their collection. What we see and love in this collection are functional staples such as nylon shell jackets and plaid shirts and hoodies. However, if you think Silas is going to stop at making comfortable basics, you are mistaken. Little innovative design details are added into this season's pieces but not in an obtrusive or avant-garde way. Plaid shirts have sleeves that cuff and fold over to reveal a another contrasting plaid patter; hoodies are made in colorblocks where the hood and cuffs are purple and the rest are doused down in grey. There is also a nylon shell sports jacket in a blue/green plaid colorway that caught our attention. All pieces are easy to pair with but far from boring as one will find fun additions upon closer inspection. The Fall/Winter 2009 collection from Silas seem rather solid and versatile for men of all styles.
