A Closer Look: Michael Thomas 1956

Although DC-native Michael Warren might have left us for the greener and warmer pastures of LA, he at least didn’t leave us empty handed….. or empty necked

His accessories line bearing the name “Michael Thomas 1956” might just be one of the most creative menswear collections of its kind to arrive in our city. I love his mix of colors, patterns and textures – the unexpected pink under a striped tie, the unlikely proportions of a polka-dotted bow tie, the floral prints, the pastel stripes – all characteristics that could easily complete an otherwise standard outfit. Michael, just as charming and stylish as his collection, tells us this is just the beginning, hinting that cufflinks and tie-clips may be to come.

His trunk show will be on display at Treasury until the end of this weekend, but you might want to hurry, they were very popular while I was there.
