Okay, okay, we know. Right now we're in the throes of summer and it's been boiling hot outside—record-hot, in fact—for weeks on end. But that's not stopping us from daydreaming about fall clothes, especially now our favorite stores have cleared out the remnants of their spring-summer merchandise and are starting to get bits and pieces of pre-season in stock.
One collection we're actually really excited about for fall? Armani Exchange. No, seriously.
The brand, which, for years built its reputation on streetwear- and moto-inspired casual clothing, seems to have taken a turn for the tailored this autumn. Check out five of our favorite looks from Armani Exchange's fall 2012 lookbook. What do you think?
