Now... This is what defines menswear right? When we think of the word menswear this is what comes to mind, right? The classic look of what a man should dress like and look like. I am so sick of it. All of these brands keep coming out with the same old stuff, and "re-defining" the classic menswear look, with what? A new tweed for your tie? An even more worn boot? An extra button for your blazer or peacoat? Shut up menswear brands. I get it, thats the look thats hot right now, or thats the "classic" look. But does that really make you a designer? Menswear designers, you take a shape and tweak little things that people have been doing for 100's of years. Thats what makes the look classic right? Because it's been done forever and day. Going to these trade shows and seeing the brands that have been there, each of them look like a continuation of the last booth it was honestly sad. They all had a tattered American flag hanging at their booth as if that would make them look more, "authentic all american". Shut up. I'm tired of the blazer, button up, trouser dress shoe combo from you menswear brands and designers. I get it its classic and it looks great but, are you really happy with how menswear is? You can barely define womenswear! It has so much to it, it has so much variety and everything looks so different and every season is exciting and unexpected. Menswear is so..... Oh look a blazer. Everyone knows whats coming.
It all goes back to what we as men are comfortable being seen in. Being judged and not looked at as what a man is 'supposed' to look like. Something less than. Being a man is never defined by the clothes you wear and what you look like. Don't let any so called style maven or designer tell you otherwise. What makes a man a man is the actions and responsibility he takes on and takes care of. If you do right and take care of what needs to be taken care of, you can be the manliest of men and wear a couture gown for anyone is concerned. Dare to be different, dare to look different, dare to look how you WANT to look. Challenge the definition of menswear and how people think a man should look and dress.
