Men's Sweatshirt Guide

A sweatshirt is probably an item of clothing you’ll already own and not really give to much thought about, but they’re one of those staple items of menswear we all have. When the colder weather turns up that means a couple of things, turn to warmer clothing, and layering. A great choice for this season when putting together an outfit is a sweatshirt, and one of the best parts of this is that you can make it look as simple as you like.

Yellow Sweatshirt Fashion Trend: Autumn 2017

Yellow Fashion Trend For Autumn 2017

Have you noticed how much yellow is around right now!?

I love the yellow fashion trend for Autumn. It’s not a particular colour which is synonymous for Autumn, but it’s one which I have noticed over the past several weeks, and it’s one I really like. Now the colder weather is here it’s time to wrap up and layer up, and what better way than with sweatshirts!

There are so many different yellow shades and tones, from mustard to bright yellow and a more pastel, pale yellow, which is my favourite. I have spotted this trend, but there’s actually not a lot of choice out there. My preference to sweats these days is sweatshirts over hoodies, but there’s still a lot of hoodies which menswear brands are releasing. Sweatshirts have regained popularity in the past year or so, and you can check out my sweatshirt guide for everything you need to know about sweats and how to style them.

H&M Edition For Autumn 2017

H&M Edition Autumn 2017 Collection

H&M have released their edition line for Autumn 2017, and they have some great pieces for this season. Whether you’re looking to refresh your current wardrobe or you need to start a brand new Autumn line up for a new look, there’s plenty on offer. You’ll probably know H&M for it’s basics line with cheap and inexpensive clothing, but they do have premium offerings, and their latest line is called Edition, which made an appearance last season too.

I have found some really nice looking pieces from the collection, these classic pieces are higher quality than the main H&M line, and are perfect when you want to create an outfit. The good thing about the basics is you can select a few pieces and make up a large number of different outfits, with neutral colour palettes and staple wears it’s easy to style these.

Fashion Question: Can Men Wear Women’s Jeans

Today’s Fashion Question: Can Men Wear Women’s Jeans?

The short Answer: My advice is no, not women’s jeans, but skinny jeans…Yes. Read more below.

There’s been a rise and rise of men wearing women’s jeans, in fact it’s been so much of a trend that a lot of menswear brands and clothing labels have picked up on this and started doing slimmer and slimmer fitting jeans. Wearing skinny jeans or slim jeans which have been designed for men is fine, but those manufactured for women is not recommended. There’s lots of new cuts and styles which are popular today; From slim fit to skinny, and then going down to super skinny jeans, which get the term drainpipe jeans or painted on jeans. Of course they’re not actually painted on, but they’re so tight it would look like they are.

Balenciaga Luxe Street Wear For Autumn 2017

Balenciaga Autumn 2017 Collection

Balenciaga is back making waves in the street wear fashion scene, and have some pretty nice pieces for this season which have been getting people talking, and not only talking, but snapping up the high priced, high end fashion label. They had their IKEA bag which was a bit of a gimmick, but for Autumn 2017 there’s some pieces which are seriously hot.

Premium high end fashion houses and labels have a bit of a strange relationship with the masses and the mainstream. They need to appeal to the runway and haute couture set, but at times want to be cool and have that must have item which everyone not only desires, but goes out and buys. This is usually from the ready to wear line, and even though this may be considered less expensive than some of the other lines, it’s hardly cheap. The title for “must have high end fashion label” gets passed around and shared over the years, with all the heavy hitters having their shot at mass popularity while remaining exclusive.

I remember around 8 years ago I bought a pair of Balenciaga jeans, which are really nice. They’re a good fit, and all this time later the quality still remains, and since I bought a timeless colour which is dark indigo, I can continue to wear these. I have found some really nice Balenciaga pieces for Autumn 2017, these pieces have been getting the love from streetwear aficionados and people who like to wear high end fashion, while keeping their look simple with standard men’s clothing.

Balenciaga Logo T Shirts

Balenciaga Logo T Shirts 2017

The most simple form of clothing for a man must be a T-shirt, so if you want to show off your luxury side, the Balenciaga logo T Shirt for 2017 is going to do that. It’s an oversized fit, and comes with the Balenciaga tri logo printed to the front breast printed small, with a larger version of the logo to the back. This comes in at £195 and is available in royal blue or black here.

Balenciaga Race Runner

Balenciaga Race Runner

Trainers are a big thing in street wear, and Balenciaga have came out with this shoe which really looks the part. The design is very sleek and minimal, the Race Runner comes in a variety of colours but I like the simplicity and minimalist look of the white. Made in Italy from Mesh, calfskin, leather, suede and neoprene it slips on with a black strap and costs £445 here.

Balenciaga Speed Trainers

Balenciaga Speed Trainer

Perhaps the most popular of it’s trainers from the collection this year, the Speed trainer is already sold out in most places, and uses a knit sock effect similar to what other trainer manufacturers are using at the moment. It’s got some technical features such as using memory sole, and has a white textured sole which looks good against the black upper of the shoe. Made in Italy, if you can find these they’ll set you back £445.

Adidas Originals EQT – Autumn/Winter 2017

Adidas Originals continue their revival of the EQT line this Autumn with some more pieces reminding all of us of 90’s style. For me, the EQT line is all about that green colour, and once again that trademark hue is at the forefront of the line up, along with the athletic and equipment Adidas logo. Growing up in the 90’s we seen the equipment logo a lot, and some of these designs are reminiscent to the Liverpool kits of the early 90’s.

Adidas Originals EQT Trainers For AW17

For footwear the EQT line has been expanded and features a range which has retro styling mixed up with brand new technology and fashion. The prime knit material is present in various models of the shoes, including the EQT Support RF which is priced at £129. It’s a technical trainer with the primeknit upper and a modern feel and design. As far as the footwear goes, the turquoise colours have been getting most of the love from fans, despite these actually being a women’s shoe. A lighter colour to the traditional EQT green, they also come in a Primeknit format, great for sport and running.

Adidas EQT AW17 T Shirts And Hoodie

For the clothing, the range has a few new tops and jackets, and really do fit the line well. The tees come with a huge oversized EQT logo to the front, available in white with the green graphic or go for that green tee with black graphic. These come in at £32.95 a piece. When it gets a bit cooler, there’s a hoodie available in black, it has a mesh design within the logo front and back in green, and comes in at £69.95.

Adidas EQT AW17 Jackets

A full zip up track jacket in sub green with the logo in black back and front really looks the part, and will set you back £79.95. Track bottoms come in black and have the logo on the back in a large format, and come in at £62.95. Rounding off the collection is a rain jacket, minimal styling to the front keeps it looking clean, with the large logo on the back at the base, it’s a really nice piece and will keep you dry with it’s polyester construction and hood. Available in black or white, it comes in at £139.95.

CR7 Denim – Limitless Design Releases

CR7 Denim Line Launches

Who’s better at football, Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi? That’s the question which has been asked time and again for years, but that’s not what I’ll be talking about in this post, because it’s all about the CR7 Denim launch. Cristiano has launched his own denim line, named CR7.

The tagline is without limits, and that is what the design in the jeans is supposed to be for. Based around an athlete who likes to move around a lot, the denim has stretch capabilities which is demonstrated by Ronaldo in videos where he can exercise and move around freely in denim, they are designed to move you. Denim has a reputation of being a rigid, firm material, and for the lovers of denim and who follow this style of fashion, raw denim is always something to be admired, but it seems CR7 is out to change that.
