Classic Linen and cotton seem to be the fabric of the season, sand-hued separates, all mixed up with unexpected bright colors. If the runways are any indication of what men will be wearing this spring, it's clear that the fashion forecasts classic fashions with an edgy twist of color, and classic prints.

Popular Colors For This Spring - Think of the past fashion colors

Bold Colors were actually very strong last spring. 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 designer's 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 blacks, 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 knee-length shorts. This easy softer tailoring will be perfect for work at keeping you cool in the summer and looking great. Fabrics such as soft linen, washed cotton, and lighter weight denim are being used to create these comfortable spring/summer men's sportswear fashions.

This summers men's fashion forecast

Summer tartans plaids, stripes, and checks will provide an alternative to the louder prints of last summer. To sum it up, if you are a fellow that loves classic fashions, with wonderful tailoring, and yet you also have a love of color, the fashions of this spring /summer will be right up your alley. Be ready to see subtle hues of neutrals, all mixed up with eye-popping bright colors, along with monochrome palettes mixed with checks, stripes, and plaids.

Men's Sport Jackets


Are you a man that likes what's on trend when it comes to a sports jacket ? - If so, you may be a candidate for the hottest color this season - Royal Blue


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

The White T-Shirt

If you don't own a couple great white well-made 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 well fitting white undershirt. An undershirt serves not only to finish off an outfit but is very functional. An undershirt can help protect your shirt from perspiration stains. and also help keep you comfortable. The white undershirt is also a fashion must have when it comes to layering clothing. An undershirt can aid in achieving a great well put together look.

An undershirt also functions in a sense to smooth out the torso, so a shirt or sweater will lay flat on your body, 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 or unbuttoned shirt.

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 too thick or to thin and have a boxy loose fit, rather than a body-conforming fit. If there is too much fabric, the undershirt will tend to bunch up under clothes and be not only uncomfortable but unsightly.

To sum it up, a well-made undershirt is a fashion item every man needs. A white undershirt can be paired with a great pair of jeans on its own or worn under an edgy sports coat to create a great looking outfit, that will carry you from day to night without a missing a beat.

V Neck Sweater


This Spring Think Color

The V neck men's sweater is not only classic but very versatile. A great V neck can literally be worn with jeans, shorts or dress trousers. Choose a classic color such as white or navy or if you are looking to make a bolder statement pick up an Orange, red, yellow V neck sweater. The classic V neck sweater is a must for layering and can work to offer many different looks. From very casual to somewhat dressy.

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 no longer be sporting "Floods". A straighter legged trouser with a shorter length is not as popular as it has been over the past few years. Designers have again returned to traditional old-fashion good tailoring, and trousers are no exception.

You Just Have To Take This Poll

So what's your take on the trendy straight legged flood trouser?

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 men's shorts, the designers have taken their inspiration from the good old 1960's. Again returning to a very classic look, well-tailored, Bermuda length. Colors you will see on the racks, navy, tan, white, denim, also look to see more prints such as sear sucker stripes and madras plaids.


Men's jean this season has 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 still see some shorter versions of the slim fit jean style, as well as some very colorful jeans as well.
