Men's Fashion Trends For The 21st Century | WSHRW
Most men will admit they are not “inherently styled”. This is usually due to a lack in understanding of how to put an outfit together.
The best clothing labels are experts in their niche, creating quality products that will last a lifetime. Invest in pieces that can be combined to create multiple outfits such as wooden watches for men, so your style is polished from daytime to night.
Chunky Commando Soles
A commando sole with a large chunk is perfect for tackling muddy terrains or working in rainy conditions. The rugged rubber sole offers excellent traction and can withstand heavy abuse, making it ideal for outdoor shoes or work boots. They are also less dressy than studded soles, which makes them a better choice for casual shoes.
Commando soles are a favorite for rugged footwear. They were first created by Vibram, in the 1930s, as a sole for mountaineering. They are ideal for cold and wet weather because of their rugged treads and insulated construction. They also help keep your feet dry and warm, so they’re perfect for hiking or walking through the woods.
The commando sole’s chunkier lugs give your boots and shoes a rugged look. These durable soles also come in a wide range of colors ranging from sleek black and classic brick red. They don’t pick up as much dirt as a sole with deeper lugs, so they’re great for everyday wear and even dress shoes.
The Ridgeway sole is another type of lugsole. It is similar to the commando sole, but has shallower lugs with a slimmer profile. This style is less bulky than a commando sole, and it can be used on a variety of styles including smart boots and country boots. Ridgeway soles can be found in styles from brands such as Dainite or Norman Vilalta. These pairs sleek dress uppers and tough lug-soles.
Blown rubber soles are also found on many styles of dress shoes and boots. This style is lighter than a rubber sole standard because it’s made using air to thin the rubber. The result is an extremely lightweight sole, which is also flexible and comfortable.
Leffot offers a variety of styles of blown-rubber soles by various manufacturers, but the ‘House Hunting Derby’ by Church’s is our favorite. This style has a navy sueded cover with a notch commando sole. The look is perfect for a pub night or a hike.
US Prep Revival
The American prep look reached its nadir in the aughts with the tepid fashions for men, relegated mainly to the Preppy Handbook or the mannequins at Manhattan department store. It has quietly been making a comeback. It’s a comeback that’s being driven by Tommy Hilfiger Ralph Lauren J Crew. They’ve taken classic pieces – letterman jackets polos rugby shirts penny loafers – and modernized them with details from streetwear. These are roomy silhouettes that are not teeny tiny. They’re often printed in silly, bright designs instead of the dark Abercrombie logos. Most importantly, they are sold to men of every age and background.
The new prep combines timeless classics with modern styles that reflect today’s fractious and globalized world. It’s a look that would appeal to a millennial playboy who reads HighSnobiety and Hypebeast in between trips to his father’s Hamptons home, where he wears Rick Owens leather Moccasins with a Supreme beanie, a Cucinelli blazer, a plaid blanket sweater, and a Supreme beanie. This is the kind of mash-up image that’s helped drive the success of recent collaborations between Polo Ralph Lauren and skate brand Palace, whose cuddly Polo bear learned how to do a heelflip in November.
While blending in skate and punk influences, the new prep retains its roots. Subversive, tongue-in-cheek twists on codes, such as crests emblazoned little whales and critter pants, might have frustrated true prepsters back in 1980, but now they may delight them.
Prep’s rebirth is good news for US Retail, which has been searching since the decline of mall cultures and the rise of e-commerce giants for a hero. It has also been welcomed by the world’s most discerning males, including those working in finance and arts, where a well made, casual look is valued.
It would be easy to dismiss New York-based Rowing Blazers as a faddish, speciality label. Jack Carlson is an archaeologist, a US national team rower and the founder of Rowing Blazers. His brand has a unique style: a slightly subversive, fun take on prep-style that’s gained him a cult and high-profile partnerships.
The story began with a blazer – a custom-made, club colored wool garment that was worn by rowing club members around the world. Carlson spotted the potential for making these classics a fashion staple, and Rowing Blazers was born.
Today, the brand offers tailoring as well as rugby and golf shirts, outerwear knits, leisurewear accessories and more. All of these are designed and ordered with a wry and decadent eye. Imagine Less Than Zero meets Royal Henley Regatta.
Carlson’s ability to resurrect the best of the old has earned him celebrity clients and an international fanbase. But it’s his uncanny knack for predicting what will appeal to the audience that keeps him at the top. His most recent project, a line of five NYC borough-themed blazers and rugby shirts, is a case in point. Each piece is emblazoned by an emblem adapted to the seals of Brooklyn Manhattan Queens Staten Island and the Latin proverb, “Destitutus ventis Adhibe,” meaning, “If wind does not serve, take up the oars.”
It’s a style which is both classic and modern, combining the best of streetwear, sportswear and tailoring. It’s also gaining in popularity among women, who account for about a fifth of Rowing Blazers’ sales.
It’s an effective formula that has the power to change our perception of preppy style. Rowing Blazers will not fade away, even though the era of Ivy League loafers and blazers may be over. It’s not afraid of mocking the heritage brands that inspired it, unlike some of its competitors who tend to take themselves way too seriously. In doing so, it is helping to reclaim blazers for the masses.
