Fall Menswear trend: spotlight on your lower half

(Image courtesy of
Sometimes it seems as if menswear styles don’t change much when it comes to slacks. But this fall, nothing is further from the truth! Banana Republic, J. Crew and Gap have both come up with a line of slim fitting, well-tailored bottoms in a range of colors, real colors.
A friend of mine recently sported a pair of pumpkin colored Banana Republic chinos and received compliments all night from men and women. To create this modern style, don’t be afraid of color on the bottom, make sure they are slim fitting and add a great leather shoe.  Combine that with denim on the top and you’ve got an edgy look that will take you anywhere you need to go this fall.

A few of our favorite things...

Fall Menswear Trends: Bow Ties

Being a part of the fashion industry, I keep up with current trends.

There are 7 fall menswear trends and I’ll share them one at a time.

The first trend is in neckwear….but it’s not traditional ties. Bow ties are the rage right now, as are pocket squares in a variety of fabrics, not necessarily silk. And you can wear a square without the bow tie or vice versa. Bow ties can be already tied for you or the kind you have to tie yourself. Not sure if you can tie one, try this video, it makes it super easy!

Some of the nicest bow ties I’ve seen have come from Brooks Brothers, but you can expect to pay upwards of $50 or more. My husband has a good friend in California that has started a luxury bow tie company and sells them for as much as $2000 each and Californians are buying them! We have a crafter who hand makes bow ties for our menswear store. Need something specific? Let us know and we will tell her what you need.

This is a trend that is catching on quick. Go ahead, tie one on!
