Isaac Weber & Eric Watts | Essential Homme Mar/Apr 2011 by Damien Neva

When saddled with the responsibility of making conversation with strangers, weather is a much abused topic. It touches everyone on the planet and even those off it — astronauts in near earth orbit can only land, weather permitting. However, just because everyone experiences weather does not make the topic any less banal, in fact quite the opposite is true. Nevertheless fashion is after all a seasonal industry and with today’s vernal equinox upon us like a wet paper bag I cannot help but talk about, forgive me, the weather. The trench coat is one of the necessary wardrobe components that bridges the seasons and completes any look. Essential Homme March / April 2011 reviews this sartorial staple through the lens of photographer Shannon Sinclair and styling by James Rosenthal with the help of Ford Men’s Isaac Weber and Eric Watts. With such a clear subject, the trench, there is no doubt a compulsion in almost every photographer to overembellish, when keeping it simple would have been the shrewder choice. To that end Shannon Sinclair excels with a series of cleanly-lit portraits starting with Isaac who wears a jacket by Shipley & Halmos, Loden Dager shirt, and Tommy Hilfiger bow tie. The shot of Eric’s second look, trench and blazer by Robert Geller, Burkman Bros shirt, and trousers by Acne, succinctly encapsulates the gist of the story — designer looks for spring that can actually be worn. Simple, direct, but never banal, and quite unlike actual talk of the weather. Were small talk my wont, then rest assured I would completely skip the perfunctory nod to the weather and instead get on talking about Isaac Weber and Eric Watts in this Essential Homme story.
