In keeping with the recent postings on finessing the construction of men’s suits comes this trend report from The Federation of Image Consultants.
The New Dress Code: The most dramatic change in menswear will be the shift towards formal suiting and structured garments. This year we will see the return of the suit, a fashion phenomenon not seen since the 1980s. Tailored jackets are the key item and the most effective way of updating a manÂ¹s silhouette.
Boardroom: Out of the boardroom and onto the streets, the iconic suit has leaped from the world of business into the mainstream. A surge in the market for male grooming products and services, together with dressed up male celebrities in the spotlight, has increased the interest in tailoring.
