Western themes remain strong at TRUE RELIGION for FW12. For the men's collection, the design team pulled from cowboy archives, featuring double pearl snap chest pockets on a peaked-yoke denim shirt, denim-on-denim looks, clean indigo rodeo jeans with narrow legs and pieced worker jeans with heavy distressing.
Tinted chambray and classic cowboy plaid are key for shirts. As with all good styling, it is not about recreating the era or theme, but rather referencing it… I love the lace-up combat boots as alternatives to expected cowboy styles. And while I think we're at complete market saturation for tribal and Navajo-inspired motifs, thankfully TRUE RELIGION did not put the pattern on every piece. Along with a couple of activewear knits thrown in, TRUE RELIGION presents a cohesive line of classic styles.
