With 2020 now well underway, we wanted to take a look at some of the current trends to look out for in men's fashion. As a lifestyle and accessory brand with a team full of design enthusiasts, we naturally like to keep on top of the latest trends in design and fashion. Although the core of our business is about making timeless products which transcend fleeting fads, we don’t want to remain ignorant to what our customers actually want. With that being said, we tried to focus on 5 core trends that won’t just be here today and gone tomorrow.
The Great Outdoors
2019 was the year that function went fashionable, and that trend will continue long into 2020 and beyond.
If you’re a fan of a technical jacket, a fleece or some mountain-friendly footwear, then you can’t go wrong this year. Your bird-watching uncle’s street cred is now at an all-time high. Accessories shouldn’t be neglected either; think thick textured socks, an appropriate timepiece, suitably outdoorsy luggage and a beanie to tie it all together. Also look out for the humble hiking boot as a viable footwear option.
Although the spray-on, skinny jeans look has been slowly dying off for a while now, 2020 is the year where looser fit trousers and jeans become fully fashionable once again, marking a sartorial shift that looks set to continue long into the next decade. Look out for tailored trousers and selvege denim jeans.
Practicality meets fashion for the next 2020 trend. For years men have had to keep their possessions in their pockets or take a larger bag with them. But no more, as the cross-body bag offers an alternative place to store your wallet, phone and keys. We released our own luxury crossbody bag late last year, combining our genuine cowhide leather with quality chrome metallic hardware.
Due to its good looks, ruggedness and timeless appeal, leather will continue to be a trend. A quality bomber jacket made from real leather will probably be one of the soundest style investments you’re ever likely to make. It won’t come cheap, but it will last a lifetime.
This may seem like a biased addition to the list, but we have long been a proponent of your phone case being a genuine fashion accessory and having more than one case to match an outfit or occasion will be a trend that we can already see developing from our own customers. If you are reading this, we can assume you have or are at least interested in real leather cases for your mobile device. Let’s say you have a tan leather case, that has aged naturally over time and taken on that rugged look that you love. You might not necessarily want to use that same case for a black tie event, and may instead want to change to a black crossgrain leather case, just as you’d change your wristwatch.
