We know it’s not really a man’s world (it’s a Snob’s world), but the way fashion’s looking this fall, it’s certainly a menswear moment. From prints like trendy houndstooth and checks to tuxedo-inspired pieces, we just can’t seem to get enough. And while it’s always fun to borrow your boyfriend’s sweater, there’s something about getting the look tailored for a woman that’s even better…
