Below: Mens fashion month has started for Fall Winter 2012 collections. Starting with Pitti Immagine Uomo in Florence right now... it's time yet again to check out what real men are wearing on the streets... Here's my observations after scouring all the street style blogs... 1) Crimson colours are raging...
Below: 2) Boys love patterns... Fair Isle, Native American Navajo prints to camouflage are spotted all over...Mens Style Spotting At Pitti Immagine Uomo Fall Winter 2012
New year, new season... It's time yet again to look at what real guys are wearing at this new cycle of fashion month for the boys. Yes, Fall Winter 2012 collections are up for scrutiny and drool from style hungry fashion fans all over:)
Starting w Pitti Immagine Uomo happening in Florence, Italy right now, what are alpha males and metrosexual guys wearing (although they are fast disappearing:-P) at the moment?
Here's my thoughts on what are trending now after scouring different street style sites:
1) Heritage brands style the likes of Barbour, Grenson, Pendleton, Woolrich Woolen Mills amongst many are making their presence strongly felt. Sartorial finesse also stays. Flamboyant, outrageous 'peacocks' please stand aside. Dressing for real boys are in. Think plaid hunting jackets, parkas, tailored shirts n not to forget lots of navy and grey tones. Accent with a speck of crimson tones from reds to oranges for that extra dandy touch. These spots of colour are perhaps one of the last remaining metrosexual traces in menswear trend now...
2) Pattern it up! Guys wants to 'play' with prints. Foulard prints are gaining traction in SS2012, and the influence are evident now with a more wintery theme. Fairisle, Native American and (to my delight) even camouflage prints are sprouting all over.
3) Wear a hat... headgear is the accessory of the moment for the boys. Get in touch with your inner 'dandy-ism'.
Pitti Immagine Uomo is typically sartorially understated in terms of streetstyle. Let's see if the upcoming Milan and Paris Fashion Weeks will inspire us with more radical looks.
