The tailored in-between men's fashion

2016.12.12

A new vibe is blowing through the menswear scene this winter.

In the corporate world, execs are trading in classic, boxy suits for soft, tailored blazers and relaxed trousers in soft herringbones and funky windowpane prints.

Meanwhile, men with a more casual style have (thankfully) moved beyond the slim-yet-droopy-backside jean to the fitted jogger-and-custom-sweatshirt combo. How do they pull it all together? With a sports jacket and velvet high-tops.

In other words, fashionable guys spent most of 2016 building wardrobes to reflect the new fashion reality - the tailored in-between.

"Men are graduation dress down, but they are also dressing up," said Jian DeLeon, senior menswear editor for the global trend forecasting firm WGSN. "It's the choose-your-own-adventure era in menswear. He's trying to figure out which rules he wants to break, depending on what he's feeling like and where he is in life."

Corporate dandies - since J.P. Morgan Chase's decision in June to allow employees to wear silk-blend chinos and cashmere pullovers - are going more cazh. The new breed of CEOs (Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg and Tumblr's David Karp) don't need stiff, classic looks to communicate power.

"We have guys who are coming in ready to try something more interesting and comfortable," said Matt Brown, vice president and general manager of Saks Fifth Avenue in Bala Cynwyd.

This fall, Saks introduced its seven office essentials: the refined top (a dressier polo), the perfect (tailored) pant, the hybrid shoe, the sporty suit, the clean sneaker, the easy layer, and the leather bag.

"The idea is to mix a more casual look like a sneaker or a pullover into his wardrobe mix," Brown said.

At the same time, guys are using the tailored pant or sporty suit to take their existing look up a notch. Men also are going more custom, not only for the three-button-blazer-and-vest-suit combos, but for their athletic wear. After all, athleisure requires a better fit - even among Philly dudes.
