E. Tautz
British sportsmanship revived
Back when men really went out hunting, rather than just dressing the part, they turned to British stalwart E. Tautz. Founded in 1867, the tailor made breeches and vests for men of means, like Winston Churchill and the kings of Italy and Spain, before falling on hard times after World War II. But now it's back, thanks to Patrick Grant, an Oxford-educated clotheshorse turned Savile Row kingpin who has rejiggered the line. Using small weavers throughout England and Scotland, Grant has crafted a collection of casually proper items, including this double-breasted blazer in oversize herringbone. The hunting grounds may have changed, but the importance of having the right attire has not. (Available at Barneys New York; etautz.com)


Anachronorm
Japanese Americana
At first glance, the Japanese designer Tomoki Tanushi's clothes appear to be carbon copies of American classics. But look closer at his work for Anachronorm and you'll see artfully imperfect details: hand-repaired holes in a pair of stone-washed piqué work pants, burn marks on mechanic's coveralls. The seven-year-old label has roots in Okayama, Japan's capital of couture denim, and prides itself on using labor-intensive techniques like hand-printing and -dyeing. The results are loving odes to mid-century American work, outdoor, and motorcycle garments—like this canvas-and-leather-jacket—that look more made-in-the-USA than anything currently being made in the USA.

Soulland
Urban cuts with Nordic vibes
The 25-year-old Danish designer Silas Adler claims that Soulland, his up-and-coming fashion label, takes its name from the English meaning of Sjælland, the island on which part of Copenhagen is located. While the more conventional translation would be "sea land," there's no question that Soulland's fall collection captures some of Scandinavia's soul. One standout, a V-neck sweater in a cave-painting-like pattern with a toggle closure, makes classic Fair Isle knits seem suddenly boring; another, a slim coat with reflective patches, proves that even when the words get lost in translation, looking good is universal.
