Eight Fall Fashion Trends

September 25, 2013

Winter is coming; the cold comes slower in Vegas than anywhere else, yes, but it is surely coming. Until then, here are the trends that will be prevalent in menswear throughout the fall. Perhaps it’s time to raid grandpa’s closet?

Wool Overcoats.

Tweed Sportscoats.

Windowpane Suits.

Crewneck Sweatshirts over Plaid.

crewneck-sweatshirt-over-plFor the last month or so I’ve been wincing as new lines of dress shirts have come out: all plaid! Ugh. Wearing one of these eyesores on its own is just asking for laughs; but then I saw them styled under solid crewneck sweaters and thought, “Aha!” So now it’s okay. Pictured above is the look, and the crewneck at EXPRESS is one of the more reasonable buys for $69.90.

Cable Sweaters.

Watches with Brown Leather Straps.

Cuffed Jeans/Pants with Oxfords. And Awesome Socks.

Men at all levels are cuffing both jeans and dress pants to show off their socks, and the trend is spreading westward. The look proves stylish with either boats shoes or Oxfords, and most of us will be wearing the latter throughout the coming months. The look is trending with business casual and formal styles as well, but with a tailor’s touch; get your pants hemmed with cuffs and pressed for the proper look, as seen at, GQ and other common style docks.

Oxford Style Dress Boots.
