That's the very question The New York Times is asking this morning. Most menswear fans will tell you that since Mr. Abboud's departure in 2005 the brand has been on a steady decline. Since his promotion to Creative Director, Mr. Bernardo Rojo's goal has been to restore the cache to a brand that is no longer synonymous with upper crust style. With a Fall 2011 collection well received by both editors and buyers, Mr. Rojo is off to a pretty good start.
