By Nancy Flores

American-Statesman Staff

Fashionistas began toasting to style on Friday night as Austin Fashion Week (AFW) kicked off with trunk shows throughout downtown Austin. The week-long festivities, which also include runway shows and designer awards, began earlier this year with AFW’s move from August to May.

While most of AFW events focus on women’s fashion, we checked in with menswear store Escalator to see what trends are hot among Austin’s best dressed guys. The contemporary men’s store, formerly Edge Boutique, on Brazos Street paired up with men’s fashion line League of Rebels to introduce some of the brand’s new suits and sport coats.
