Sartorial Sportswear, Anyone? After the Paris Menswear Runway Shows

How ’bout it? Sartorial sportswear, anyone? Savile Row meets Easy Street?  We need a new tag.

Perhaps it’s time to coin a new category within the menswear industry.
Since the menswear designers wrap-up of the runway shows in Paris, it’s become clear that there is a new hybrid emerging.

According to Isaac Hindin Miller from the NZherald: “Where there is tension, there is energy,” declared Lanvin menswear designer Lucas Ossendrijver after the show, “and this collection was really about that tension. A classic loafer and then an extreme hiking boot, or luxury tailoring mixed with sportswear. We tried to find the hybrid.”
Yes, the tension is there, but don’t stress….  The hybrid exists. Now we need to refine the name. Any suggestions?
