V.O.B. - Fashion: 3sixteen Fall 2009 Collection Lookbook

We just cannot emphasize enough how pleased we are with the development of New York label3sixteen. They have grown from a small streetwear label into an up and coming menswear brand in less than 2 years and their Fall 2009 Collection is looking really good. Especially the outerwear has attracted our attention – double breasted coats and peacoats make up the key pieces of the collection, which is completed with a solid line-up of shirts and knitwear, as well as some stand-out accessories. The look is very coherent and just works.
