Orman of Freed's would rather
say the Don Johnson — star of
the Miami Vice TV show— look is
still strong, rather than referring to
it as the Miami Vice look,
because the style of Johnson's
co-star, Philip Michael Thomas,
who portrays Ricardo Tubbs, is
making inroads in the men's
fashion field this year as well.
"The Don Johnson look is
going to be very prevalent,"
Orman says, but added "the
Ricardo Tubbs look is becoming
a factor." Where the Johnson
look emphasizes baggy pants,
T-shirt and unconstructed jacket,
the Tubbs look focuses more on
dressing up — dark shirt, light
accessories and shiny cloth in
suitings. However, Orman
admits, "the unconstructed look
is very big for this spring.
Kosins said the "Miami Vice
look is strong for kids 25 and
down," adding that older men are
following the trend in a more
toned-down look. He said men
are looking at a semi-Miami Vice
style — slightly lined jackets and
slight shoulder pads, rather than
full pads.
Grumet said he sells a lot of
oversized, soft-constructed
jackets, but for himself, prefers
the double breasted look.
However he encourages his
customers to be creative in the
way they dress.
Elkus finds the Don
Johnson / Miami Vice look a
boon for the men's clothing
industry. "It goes for everybody. It
made middle-age and older men
less conservative."
At L'Uomo Vogue, pleated
pants with a fuller leg are stylish
and the layered look continues to
be hot. Hersh's sees a trend in

Givenchy designed the sportscoat, a textured wool
and silk in navy, grey and white, teamed with
Henry Grethel linen-cotton blend pleated
trousers, and navy three-button cotton-
linen t-shirt from Mondo.
