Nothing groundbreaking, nothing overly awful, just simple brit style at it’s previously defined best.
The stove pipe legs were definitely a trend for men throughout this Pre-Fall line. The slender silhouette carried through the tops, jackets and even through the python gloves! If there was a time that you wanted to embrace a crash cleanse or liquid diet… now would be appropriate because there is only one body type that will look even moderately decent in this apparel and that is “Skinny.”
The outerwear was definitely a little more forgiving and may allow for a mesomorph to squeeze in, but a boat neck sweater that demands collar bones of a “jutting-out-fashion” was made strictly for the ectomorphs out there. One may assume that black is flattering to all body types but when there are doublebreasted closures involved that cinch in a waist that nearlydelivers an hour glass look, most guys will not measure up.
The cashmere jackets, and bountiful fur collars allow for an abundance of elitism while the paper boy hats bring the whole demeaner of the wearer back down to a day-to-day look.
The oversized bags for both men and women make the wearers appear encumbered and fashionably capable (which means not functionable at all). But in all honesty who cares about being capable when you are wearing a sweater with an adorable canine on it?
If there are a few pieces of Prorsum in your closet already, then you will likely pick up a few more as this is an extension of the Burberry Prorsum we have come to know. If you are a virgin to Burberry’s Ready-to-wear line then why start now? They have not produced a collection for men this season that shakes the boat in any way, nor does it inspire one to step outside of their norm and try Prorsum if they have not previously.
