New York Fashion Week: Men’s isn’t often where headlines are made. In fact, it’s not even a week, but rather four days, which are chock-full of brands that aren’t exactly household names.

Of course, that isn’t a side-eye to the fashion itself. Believe it or not, New York Fashion Week: Men’s has become a rather exciting display of up-and-coming designers trying to innovate and elevate menswear.

This year in particular, there were wild stylings, gender-free displays of self-expression and yeah, a fashion-y take on a Make America Great Again hat.

And to think: We’re just two days in.

Here are the best and wildest looks from New York Fashion Week: Men’s so far, from just the first and second days.
