New Year New Man

New Year New Man

Start the year off on a fresh slate and toss behind old threads that defined 2015’s wardrobe. Gentlemen, keep it pared down with a minimal colour palette but make your statement with contrast socks or a wool fedora. Gym fanatics are in luck as the Athleisure trend follows strongly into 2016. The philosophy of fashion is simple — you can be whoever you want to be. Who will you be in 2016?

MR EFFORTLESS

The guy who always looks so pulled together without even trying. His wardrobe revolves around a good selection of well-cut, basic staples in clean and relaxed silhouettes. He keeps his palette neutral with a pop of colour.
