However, for this spring/summer the color hues that were once being used as accents only, colors such as oranges, greens and mustard - now have become the focus of many designers collections. Royal blue appears to be the color most designers have adopted as a favorite... Although, blues of all shades were present on the runways. "YSLs" relied heavily on navy,deep black and bright white to create a very classic strong line of men's spring fashions .

Sportswear Trends

In regards to sportswear, one word sums it up - comfortable.... Expect to see soft tailoring, easy loose silhouettes, unlined jackets, and low rise trousers, and shorts. This easy softer tailoring will be perfect to work at keeping you cool in the summer. Fabrics such as soft linen, washed cottons, and lighter weight denims, are being used to create these comfortable spring/summer men's sportswear fashions.

Do You have A Good White T Shirt ? If you don't have a "good one" you need one.


Sport Shirts - Stripes are the trend this season


The White T-Shirt

If you don't own a couple great white undershirts, I recommend you get a couple. A good white undershirt can make all the difference when putting together a well polished outfit. Whether your dressing for a business look or you're just after a well layered casual look, you need a good fitting white undershirt. The male undershirt serves not only to finish off an outfit, but is very functional. In regard to function, an undershirt can help protect your shirt from perspiration stains. and help keep you comfortable. The white undershirt is also a fashion staple when it comes to layering clothing. An undershirt can aid in achieve a great well put together look.

A fitted undershirt also functions in a sense to smooth out the torso, so a shirt or sweater will lay flat, and hide all the little lumps and bumps that might show for lack of an undershirt. Plus it will really pull off a better look at the neck of a sweater.

Why do I recommend you purchase 'a good undershirt"? Unfortunately undershirts are not created equally. Just like premium denim the discerning qualities are fit and fabric matters. Many of the cheaper brand undershirts tend to be to thick or to thin, and have a boxy fit, rather than body conforming fit. If there is to much fabric, the undershirt will trend to bunch up under cloths, and be not only uncomfortable, but unfashionable.

To sum it up, a good undershirt is a fashion item every man needs. A white undershirt can be paired with a great pair of jeans, and an edgy sports coat to create a great outfit, that will carry you from day to night without a missing a beat.

V Neck Sweaters Trends It's all in the color, think bright ! - Stripes, Orange, red, yellow, and most again royal blue is so on trend.


Men's Trouser Forecast For Spring/Summer season. What's the trend, and what most men will buy is another thing?


The Classic Man Prefer Their Trouser To Hang Just Over The Top Of The Shoe

The trendy man will be sporting "Floods". A straighter legged trouser with a shorter length. However, many designers have again added traditional old-fashion good tailoring to their trouser for spring. In my opinion the shorter straight trouser trend will most likely not go over big with most men. Another big trend for this spring and summer are colored trousers. You will be seeing trousers all done up in red, orange, royal blue, mustard, you name it.

The Trendy guy will most likely appreciate "'straight flood trousers". They are edgy, and a certainly stand out in a crowd.


You Just Have To Take This Poll

Shorts - When in doubt, borrow from a more classic look - Shorts.Think the shorts that were around in the 60s.


Sporty Shorts

When it comes to what's up with shorts, the designers have taken their inspiration from the 1960s. Again returning to a very classic look, well tailored, Bermuda length, and they have taken away all the over-sized pockets. Colors you will see, navy, tan, white, denim, also look to see more prints such as sear sucker stripes, and madras plaids.


Men's jean this season have actually not changed much from last spring. Expect to see lots of straight slim fit jeans, along with a more comfortable relaxed fit classic jean. You will also see some shorter versions of the slim fit jean style, and lots of very colorful jeans as well.
