Hello my lovely people!!! Great fit has long been and forever will be the key to impeccable style. Slim and tailored has become the default fit adopted by the menswear industry in recent years. Designers have made many ill-fated attempts to push, reintroduce and re-establish a slightly fuller cut, but to no avail (as yet anyway).The sophisticated, continental aesthetic that has defined men’s style of late, particularly in the realm of #menswear, marries well with this streamlined ideal. Our collective penchant for blazers and double-monks has so far kept the cruel cycle of fashion away, helping cement a more refined and elegant approach to style.However, is AW15 the season where this all changes? Sports luxe has dominated runway shows and brand lookbooks since the turn of the year and the appetite for track pants and trainers is quickly turning into more of a hunger. It seems, finally, menswear clean-cut image is under threat.This year we’ve noticed a gradual move towards trends that are in many ways the complete antithesis of the clean and fitted silhouette that we’ve all religiously embraced. Oversized and longline garments are having a moment, in an effort to challenge the style status quo and make a case for the anti-fit. And so far, it’s proving quite convincing. Coming to the star of the show, This Classic Zip sweater from www.nautica.com proves the former sentences right in all good ways. Its not so sleek fit; yet the tendency to keep you warm and make you look sleek yet smart wins all the brownie points. To style it a bit; I opted for a pair of olive green chino pants which keep everything in place down there. So don’t forget to walk into the nearest www.nautica.com store to keep it smart yet sheek.
