Modern Brando

Come autumn, your outerwear says as much about your style as the clothes you wear all day. See this guy's jacket? Structured but not bulky, hardy with just a touch of polish. We're not sure if designer Filippa Knutsson was channeling Marlon Brando's character Terry Malloy from the 1954 classic "On the Waterfront" when she created it for Filippa K's fall collection, but that was certainly the first image that came to mind when we first saw it. The wool coat is a study in proportion—the narrow sleeves, the large collar, the waistband that stops right at the belt line. Take it from Brando. It's hard to look bad in a sturdy coat. And when the wind starts whipping, it's okay to pull up your collar.
