Choreographed Style: Winter Fashion with The Pittsburgh Ballet

A regal ruggedness characterizes the season's menswear looks.



Refined meets rough in a dance of dapperness dominated by greys, blue-black combos and splashes of maroon that lend warm color to the winter landscape. Plaid suits and jackets, luxurious dress coats, eye-catching sweaters and the bomber jacket are this season’s wardrobe essentials. Utility and luxury tango, keeping the fashionable fellow from becoming a sartorial wallflower. Check out the season’s hippest looks photographed in a lofty space on the South Side.

Special thanks to the Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre and its dancers for participating in our winter fashion feature. The dancers appear in Snowflake costumes from the Snow Scene of the troupe’s 15th anniversary production of “The Nutcracker,” which runs from Dec. 2-27 at the Benedum Center.

The costumes were designed by Zack Brown and built in the PBT Costume Shop under the direction of Janet Groom Campbell. The costume shop, along with practice and training facilities, now is located in PBT’s newly expanded headquarters in the Strip District, featuring the new Byham Center for Dance.

The new annex opened in September and expanded PBT’s home base for its 30 full-time professional dancers and more than 1,000 students. PBT has begun offering more classes for community members in the space as well.
