The Biggest Trends of Spring 2015 and How to Buy Them
Investing in a quality can be a sure fire way to be a classic gent… but hitting trends on the head can be tough from a bespoke perspective. Custom suits can be made from thousands of swatches, but which ones will make you stand out in the right way for Spring 2015?
When I went to Hong Kong last year all the men were wearing bright eye-catching cobalt blue. It dotted the financial district like sastrugi after a blizzard. Guess what just made its way to North America? Cobalt blue. Since last year the color has only gotten brighter, but think slate blue instead of sky blue or navy.
Aside from suiting, invest in a solid pair of loose fitting lamb leather shorts or a leather shirt. This bad boy style is guaranteed to get you noticed in all the right ways.
After you spent all your budget on a new suit, it’s time to trick out your Spring style with easy to buy quickies like a brown/white or blue/white gingham shirt, a washed leather work style boot and an oversized scarf. It doesn’t have to be cashmere to be stylish. Wear it over your coat and hide the tassel ends to give it a captivating street style look.
Call up your buddy and tell them you’re showing up with a 6 pack. Then while he’s guzzling back watching the game, it’s time to “mission impossible” their closet! You’re mission… grab all the hole-y shirts and sweaters you can find for the 90’s grunge revival trend. Truth is… they won’t even know you have them until they see you on the popular page on Instagram wearing there old throwaways.
Other things to borrow are vintage sunglasses and bow ties.
