Editor's Notes: Commission just debuted its first menswear collection and it's part dad, part downtown cool.

The emerging New York brand, helmed by Huy Luong, Dylan Cao, and Jin Kay, offers up a selection of timeless silhouettes that can go from the street to the office — and everywhere in-between.

Button-down shirts are spiced up with diagonal stripes interspersed with Commission's script logo, adding a bit of logo-mania to the tailored essential. Pleated trousers, another wardrobe basic, are infused with utilitarian edge, thanks to hammer loops and oversized patch pockets.

Flashier separates give us all the warm, fuzzy feels — literally and figuratively. A faux mink coat recalls Margot Tenenbaum's darkly preppy aesthetic, and plush, cashmere pullovers boast sporty polo collars.

Commission also presents plunging necklines for men. Gussying up the typically questionable look, the brand debuts satin rodeo shirts (in leopard print and fire engine red, no less) constructed with slim V collars.

There are also accessories — a leather messenger with a detachable top handle is an attractive alternative to the briefcase while the leather Market bag, embossed with gold branding, is a souped-up version of the classic canvas tote.

Commission's entry into menswear is promising. Retro silhouettes are revamped with luxurious detailing; everything old is new again.

Perhaps most indicative of Commission's ability to translate the past for a contemporary audience is its faux mink coat: once relegated to the realm of grandmothers, the formerly stuffy garment is transformed into a gleaming, slim-fitted topper. Cozy boys, rejoice.
