Moby Monday — Cetacean Suggests Sartorial Splendor

Montreal designer Philip Sparks’s fall 2010 menswear collection claims Moby-Dick as its inspiration, though one impressed reviewer says the models look less like working whalemen than like "sailors on shore leave looking for trouble." The getups include pea coats, trench coats, tweed blazers … and even some cropped, supposedly "motorcycle-inspired" toppers that narrator Ishmael would recognize as monkey jackets.

Margaret Guroff is editor and publisher of Power Moby-Dick.
