MENSWEAR: YOUR SS19 STYLE

Suits Us? Suits You

Tailoring is back – and back in a big way. For the first time in a long time, a lot of designers are starting to move away from athleisure, which means you can dust off your old suit trousers and call ’em cool again.

Double or Nothing

Double-breasted is the suiting shape of the season. Shy away from the slim-fit tailored, base-layer-tight and opt for a rather big, baggy, super-fluid double-breasted suit with plenty of room for movement, be that dancing or dining. The best thing about these double-breasted suits – they’re best worn open. Want to nail the two trends in one? Make it a sage blazer and you’re onto a winner.

Sage Against The Machine

We saw khaki all over the high street last year. For spring and summer, make like the sky and get lighter. Go for sage! The colour is not quite as in-your-face as the ss19 favourite, highlighter-green, so it’s much easier to pair with your wardrobe staples.

Clash In On the Pattern Trend

Bright, bold, clashing patterns injected some welcome vibrancy to the menswear shows last season, with Versace, Dolce, and Valentino all choosing to clash classic prints with camoflage, logos, and even a newspaper print. Not sure if your patterns go together? It doesn’t matter? The madder it seems, the cooler you look. Maybe you’ll end up on tumblr under #streetstyle.

Rejoice! Ugly Trainers Aren’t Going Anywhere!

Just because athleisure is making way for the tailoring trend, doesn’t mean you should be throwing away those chunky ‘Dad’ shoes you spent your last paycheck on. If anything, pairing your ugly creps with a soft suit or wide leg trousers really leans into the late 80s / early 90s vibe that has been dominating street-style. So, now’s the time to start mixing business and pleasure.
