Hermès is the most conservative fashion house that shows a menswear collection in Paris and when there is a shift in a silhouette or style at Hermès people take notice because if menswear as a whole moves a snail's pace, then Hermès moves a glacial pace and if they adopt a change, it resounds. With this mind, when Veronique Nichanian, the men's style director, opted of slender three-button suits for FW14, the fashion elite wondered, "Is the two-button suit over?". Quite possibly since Nichanian's chic version were as flattering to the male physique as two-button ones. Other items of note at Hermès were calfskin coats, with many featuring three gauge buttons, as well as a handful of crocodile skins that are almost prerequisites at Hermès. They came in the form of a crocodile varsity jacket with leather sleeves, seen on Arthur Gosse as well as a croc embossed puffer on Charlie France. It was an excellent collection once again from Nichanian, where an extra button literally made the consiglieri ponder the current state of suiting. Bravo!
