The Menswear Trend Report Fall 2016

Men’s fashion month is a wrap. 15 looks, 5 trends, 3 cities, and 1 report. From yellow hues and wide trousers in Milan, to karate jackets and duffel coats in Paris, click through for our menswear trend report Fall 2016 to learn which trends you need to master next fall.

Hello, Yellow


From left to right: Salvatore Ferragamo, Gucci, Trussardi

Once the hue of our favorite after work-out fruit, yellow is now making its way into your fall wardrobe.
Salvatore Ferragamo presented a mustard version of this bright shade, while Trussardi made us go bananas with a striking lammy coat. And although head-to-toe yellow can be a total showstopper, we advise that you focus on integrating tasteful accent pieces instead. You know, like Gucci did.

The Waist and Nothing But the Waist

According to Valentino and Ports 1961, next season is all about the waist. Indeed, one side effect of one’s love for kung-fu movies is the revival of the karate uniform. A big hand to Umit Benan, as his deep appreciation for Jean-Claude Van Damme and Japanese streetwear culture has translated into sporty martial arts jackets detailed with a refined leather waistband that one could only describe as “old school charm.”

Say Yes to the Duffel Coat

Always put money on the coat. Originally designed for the army, the duffel coat is a true menswear classic. Designed to keep you comfy and stylish in any weather, this coat is ideal for layering over everything from casual looks (Maison Margiela) to smart suiting (Dior Homme).

The Rise of the White Shirt

Ah, the white shirt. Not so much a revival as a rediscovery of a long lost item. Thankfully the folks at Marni, Dries Van Noten, and Dolce & Gabbana are here to remind us that the white shirt is here to stay and it’s next season’s must have item.

Trousers on Steroids


From left to right: Lanvin, Balmain, Damir Doma

Lanvin, Damir Doma, and Rick Owens have overcome all resistance and their unconventional silhouettes are now the new normal. Join the wide-leg trousers campaign: all you need is a white crisp shirt and a pair of leather sandals. It’s out with “slim” and in with “wide.” Sorry, Hedi.
