Fall Fashion: Trends for Men

While men’s clothing style rarely makes dramatic leaps into the unknown, they do make subtle changes each fashion season. This year alone, several big name retailers have come out with exciting new trends for fall. These include those made by Nautica, Ralph Lauren, and Ecko.

The Nautica Line:
Styles for men this fall at Nautica include a new but classic line of stripped, long-sleeve, button-down shirts in muted blues, greens, and maroons. Also hot this season are a number of raglan sleeve(the sleeves and shoulders are different colors than the body) shirts in various shades of blues, grays, and white.

When it comes to keeping warm, Nautica has men covered with argyle v-neck sweaters and cable knit crew cut versions. The Nautica men’s line also includes chic and soft cotton sport pullovers as well as fashionable two-button cotton blazers for those in need of a more formal look.

The Ralph Lauren Collection:
Ralph Lauren designs aim to please the upper crust, country club type, but the fashions are versatile enough to suit many types of style. New for the fall, the Ralph Lauren Polo line has a few shawl sweaters and cardigans, where the collar and neck line resemble the look of a wool scarf, serving a dual purpose of style and warmth.

The varsity university men’s look is also very “in” this year with logo-ed club cardigans, wool sports coats, and fitted half-zip pullovers. The Polo Ralph Lauren collection’s new argyle features much larger, bolder diamonds in a variety of yellows, greens, maroons, and blues. The Polo clothing collection also highlights a trendy new corduroy sport jacket in tan as well as a casual but cool leather bomber jacket in brown.

Another leather choice is the Norwich coat that provides tall, pointed, flared upright collars. The new shirts for the season include more tartans and ginghams offering more color choices with blue, red, green, pink, purple, and tan.

The Polo Ralph Lauren men’s pants this fall features a hemline that ends right above the top of the shoe backing. The most daring piece of the new collection is a pair of bright red, slim-fitting chino pants, but the same cut is available in three other more conservative colors.

Also hot are the new polo shirts in bold colors, some with large diagonal stripes and some with more traditional horizontal swipes. Chic ties for the fall include understated diagonal stripes patterns, dark solids, and pale paisley designs.

The Polo clothing line has also made some new strides in its shoe collection with a pair of men’s ankle-cut boots, leather buckle loafers, and suede and flannel sneakers.

Ecko:
Ecko clothing, designed by Marc Ecko, is a brand for trendy urbanites with a full line up of designer t-shirts, hoodies, and denim wear. This year Ecko denim pants feature a faded pattern from the crotch to the knees in several shades of dark blue and black. T-shirts and long-sleeve tees this fall are inked with tattoo-style drawings of pegagus horses, eagles, skulls, and war lords.

The Ecko button down clothing collection includes traditional stripes but also some shirts with spots, embroidered crests, and laser-cut patterns. The big Ecko buzz this year is the new line of Rutgers gear, inspired after the designer’s alma mater.

There are plenty of great new men’s fall fashions, even if the changes are at most incremental. Ralph Lauren, Ecko, and Nautica are just a few of the great brands offering a wide array of choices for the active man this year.

Winter Fashion Trends for Men

Whether you have a bigger closet than your girlfriend or have bought the same kind of pants in the same color for the past ten years, this winter every man can find a wardrobe update to suit his individual style. Check out the following fashion forward looks to help you keep up with the latest trends in men’s apparel.

1. Keep it in check. Check patterns and plaids have returned with a vengeance this winter season. So far no one check pattern has emerged more popular, so feel free to play around with color combos and levels of intensity. Polo by Ralph Lauren has checked dress shirts that range from lumberjack to understated, but the key is to not overdo it. Keep the patterns above the waist and paired with flattering neutral jackets and pants.

2. So what if it’s not snowing? Instead of hitting the slopes, you can hit the streets with ski-inspired ensembles. Long striped scarves, puffy quilted jackets, and a splash of electric yellow will have you looking more hot than cold this winter. The new Nautica line recently showcased a clever blend of layering bright ski jackets beneath classic wool coats, adding cheer to the dreary weather. Keep an eye out for other emerging favorites like sporty vests and colorful knit caps.

3. Rock your way through the holidays with narrow jeans, band shirts, and a leather jacket to keep you warm. To keep this long-time standard trend from getting stale, choose grey jeans over blue and ditch the black leather for unexpected colors. White, blue, or yellow-accented leather jackets will keep the look fresh and all eyes on you. If you’re concerned about fit, this season is more about comfort than squeezing into skin-tight pants and t-shirts. Keep with the spirit of the season and go for looser fits that give you room to layer if necessary.

4. The preppy look blossoms in winter. Forget about the cheesy yacht-inspired men’s apparel that dominated the summer months. Winter prep looks elegant and timeless. Try pairing a military cardigan, such as the ones found at Ralph Lauren’s Polo line this season, with charcoal colored pants and a patterned tie. Or brighten up the office with bold primary colored sweaters in red, blue, and yellow. If you don’t want to look like you just graduated from prep school, mix one piece into your standard office wear to get a lively but age-appropriate look.

5. If trendy men’s apparel isn’t your thing, classic sharp lines and dark colors are always in style and readily available. If you want to make it more modern and less predictable, choose decadent materials like the cashmere and camel hair that dominated the Ralph Lauren collection. And you can never go wrong with some unexpected accessories such as a timeless pair of cufflinks. Ditch the hats and alligator shoes, though. You don’t want to get stuck in a time warp.

But the most fashionable menswear trend for this winter season is finding a look that suits your individuality the best. Happy hunting, whether you’re a lumberjack, rocker, or ski bum.
