Men's Suits - Fashion Trends In 2009
Spring is here, and summer is following too, so time now to pack up all the woolens and jackets.
It’s a thing of past that men’s fashion never changed for decades, now the age is of metro and retro sexual men thus resulting in continuous evolution of men’s apparel and suits.
The key fabric this year and for many more years to come is cotton and natural fibre.
Renowned fashion houses like Giorgio Armani, Louis Vuitton and DKNY added cotton suits to their collections. This could be a trend we will see for years to come.
Suit Trends in the Year 2009:
This year one will notice a striking change in the field of men’s suiting.
The classics are the biggest influence and inspiration visible in the fashion circuit and it has undoubtedly affected the formal wear as well.
The slim look suits are out this season but as the inspiration is classic then one cannot ignore the fact that the best example of a classic suit is the English one, and the best English suit has always had a slim, military cut to them.
The suits this season is a blending of classic looks and tailoring with masculine shape. The dominant pattern includes broad shoulders, slim waist and slim trousers.
Double Breasted Suits- This season the emphasis is on highlighting the perfect masculine silhouette i.e. the V- shaped well worked body. Slim cut is what one must look for in a double breasted suit in 2009. “Kent” cut is the most famous cut this season which will convey height and if cut correctly, a slimmer waist.
Three-Piece Suits – In 2009 we will witness the return of the three-piece suit. especially the waistcoat is back but it is more subtle and classic.
The three-piece in 2009 is all about unity; this means that the waistcoat has to be conservative and, thus, in the same fabric as the suit's other two pieces. If one do wants to venture outside the realm of three matching pieces, a similar color palette should be utilized and any pattern except for stripes must be avoided; one can pair a pinstripe black suit with a pinstripe charcoal waistcoat.
If we're returning to the classics with double breasted and three-piece suits in 2009, then it stands to reason that we're also returning to classic cloth patterns.
Moreover, the coupling of the classics with the current men's fashion revitalization means this is the perfect time to reintroduce patterns into your wardrobe.
