Eagle-eyed observers may have noticed a few of this autumn's early arrivals showing up on MR PORTER in recent weeks. The pros on our buying team call it pre-fall, and like them we're training ourselves to engage in a bit of autumnal wardrobe management before frying our cerebral cortex in the sun-baked, rose-fuelled bachannal of high summer.
Yes, you can buy a Lanvin peacoat in June, should you wish to do so. But it wasn't just an early glut of winter coats showing up on our doorstep that got us thinking about the season ahead, either. Seeing Mr Ryan Reynolds in a blue velvet tuxedo at this May's Met Gala got us thinking about December's upcoming party season.
Turning our attention to the here and now, Mr Reynolds wasn't the only man whose style inspired us this May. To see who merited inclusion in our best-dressed list, click through the gallery, above.
