We bet all of these trends are here to stay!
Double Breasted is Back!
Several designers re-invented the men’s suit with a double Breasted cut. One designer that especially stood out to us was Michael Bastian. His suits were, although double breasted, slim fitted – perfect for the thin and tall man. Michael Bastian gave his DB suit a springy look thanks to the blue linen, and the light colored double row button. For more information please read our entire story on Michael Bastian’s Spring look.
Pastels on Everything
Bright and lively colors are always popular during spring and summer and this has not changed come spring 2013. What did change however is the range of clothing pieces available in these springy colors. Certainly J.Crew’s men’s collection for spring 2013 comes to mind here. From pastel loafers to the sport coat, this designer did not hold back in adding color into men’s spring wardrobe.

Skinny Tie Once More
By now almost every designer carries a collection of men’s ties in skinny width. Be it J.Crew, Michael Bastain, or Michael Kors, they all had models dressed in solid skinny ties during this year’s New York fashion week. Our tip: If you haven’t already done so, add a couple solid ties that range 2 to 2.5 inches in width to your collection.
Bold Patterns & Strong Contrast
If you are fan of bold patterns and strong contrast then your senses would have been delighted at this year’s NYC fashion week. One designer that stood out more than any other when it comes to pattern and contrast was Michael Kors. His bold black & white suit and shirt combination is still stuck in our heads.
