Your Sartorially Stylish Guide to this year’s biggest menswear trends

Checks

Windowpane, Madras and tartan are the checks of choice for the colder months. Think bold, bright and even worn together.

Checks were everywhere at the AW18 menswear shows and will be a big deal during the colder months. But if you don’t fancy emulating some of the more daring looks, you could always just incorporate the pattern via flannel shirts, checked suiting or printed outerwear.

Statement Jumpers

Whether it’s a bold pattern or a striking logo or slogan – jumpers with attitude are one of this winter’s biggest trends.

Ski-inspired, alpine designs are some of the most popular styles to emerge this year. If you’re planning to try it yourself, you should take care to ensure the rest of your outfit is clean and basic to let the jumper do the talking.

Quilted Jackets

Rolled out by heavy hitters including Moncler, Prada, Marni and Versace, quilted jackets are back for AW18. Only this time they’re bigger and brighter than ever before (which is saying something). We have to say, we still prefer more muted tones such as black or navy, which will offer longevity.

It’s not just that quilted jackets are trending hard, they’re also one of the warmest and most practical options when it comes to selecting a winter coat. So, where once you had to suffer in the name of fashion, this year you can revel in it and stay cosy instead.

Pinstripe

Whether it was oversized suiting or wide-leg trousers, pinstripes were everywhere at the menswear shows.

It’s a welcome return for one of the coolest patterns in tailoring. If business casual is well, too casual, opt for fine quality pinstriped suit. Single breasted is a classic option but to go for the full look, try a double-breasted jacket with peak lapels because tailoring has just gone full circle.
