I'm pretty sure I haven't been living in a cave but I honestly have never heard of an existing men's line for Mango up until now. Homini Emerito, or H.E. by Mango, is the Spanish label's men's line, and I never knew it's been in existence since 2008. At least I do now.
I don't know if H.E. is available in Mango stores here in the Philippines because their website only pointed me to a few countries in Asia, among them Singapore, Indonesia and Thailand. Anyway, I found a lot of great pieces, particularly from their Spring/Summer 2012 lookbook in which top model Noah Mills is featured.
I thought the suits are good, be they classic plain or patterned ones. I love the slim fit, of course. And oh, I see a real bow tie there; you know, the one you literally have to tie in a bow. Finding one here can be quite frustrating.
There are also blazers with elbow patches, which some purists detest but something I welcome. There are also some great knits and cardigans in the collection.
Casual outfits are also aplenty, which ranges from the too casual jeans and t-shirts to "classier" ones like a seersucker suit jacket paired with matching seersucker shorts. I thought the carryalls were great, too.
The shorts are perfectly cut to me; they're tapered and short enough to show some leg. The jeans are also noteworthy, which are available in classic denim and in bright, loud colors. A fitted leather jacket should be perfect with them.
That's it. I'm officially in love with the brand. Hopefully I could score some of their stuff real soon.
