Phillip Lim for Target

Target is at it again with yet another one of their high end designer collaborations.  This time the mega retailer has enlisted Phillip Lim.  Known for cool graphics and tailored silhouettes, finding Mr. Lim’s 3.1 Collection at Target is a big win for the well dressed man.  This capsule collection will be in stores September 15th.

As with all Target collaborations the best way to get what you want is to hit up the store super early on the first day (or take three buses and two trains to the Target in Rockaway Queens).

Check out the gallery below for a taste of the Mens Lookbook.  The collection contains a lot of great essential items to update your fall wardrobe.  The Leather Jacket in Black for $300 is a clear winner for the “most likely to be sold out within two hours” category.  The Shirt in Navy/Camo print and The Blazer and Pants in Navy being tied for second place.  The beauty about a collection like this is that many of the silhouettes are repeated in different patterns. Use this to make a quick getaway when shopping the sale.  If you try on the shirt in Blue, just buy the same size in White and the Navy/Camo color right off the rack.

Stick to braving the lines at the store rather than taking a chance with  I’m sure we all remember how the Missoni sale crashed the site the first day.  Besides, at the end of the day its much more fun to rock a fresh purchase right out of the store.
