If there's one collection that we consistently want to raid every New York Fashion Week, it's that of the designer godsend Mark McNairy. Hands down. Every season. His knack for refreshing wardrobe stand-bys like t-shirts, chinos, and oxfords (the namesake shirts AND shoes) is incredible. His ability to create pieces that are timeless and true to the McNasty spirit while also pumping out collections that look and feel new every single time is uncanny. We like to think that McNairy does this all with such unwavering success because he is built with a superhuman ability that allows him to pull unabashedly from a wealth of influences, sift it all through his distinct personality and filter of wit, then translate those nuggets of so many nebulous inspirations into one eclectic yet cohesive collection season after season after season.

We caught an exclusive sneak peek of the Fall 2013 collection when the designer invited us to his lookbook shoot with Angel Haze, but seeing the looks in motion and set to McNairy's runway soundtrack of Dwight Twilley, Alan Vega, The Dictators, Tim McGraw, and more is a TOTALLY different story. Models (including Mark's daughter, Daisy, but NOT including Angel Haze as we had hoped) showcased looks that seemed to pull together impressions of New York streetwear, East Coast prep, circus motifs (by way of painted clown face masks, prints, and "Big Top Fun"), and southern country comfort (beanies that read "Howdy," ginghams, and the occasional Stetson). And let's not forget the trusty McNasty parody or two.

Make no mistake. When we say we want to plunder the McNairy closet, we're talking about the dudes' togs, too. So what if they were modeled by guys on the runway? These are classic cuts with an inimitable twist and that means we'll wear them 'til the rims fall off. Borrow-from-the-boys fit or not!
