Menswear Trends for 2013

The new revolution in evening wear signals the arrival of the bolder and more confident man, what with famous celebrities including Usher, Daniel Craig and even Messi stepping out in evening wear that is bold and unconventional.


Exaggerated lapels are in trend. Double-breasted suits have made a big comeback along with three piece suits with contrasting vests. We’ve seen pant lengths shorten and even cuffs make a comeback.

Thom Browne’s latest collection was all about exaggerated muscles, hooded heads, and grotesque make-up. Drawing inspiration from movies such as Blade Runner, Road Warrior, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, and Despicable Me, the collection focused on being bold and ditching the sophisticated élan that is a regular of men’s evening wear. Unconventional colors including gradations of grey, black, white, dark blue, mint green, pink ruled the ramp.


Simple evening wear has become passé, black dinner suits are no longer in trend; white, velvet, burgundy and midnight blue are the colors of the season. Ryan Gosling and Daniel Craig have brought this style to the masses. Australian custom menswear provider InStitchu produced a lovely midnight blue dinner suit for Wallabies star James O’Connor.


Velvet jackets are in vogue, you can even add an edgy vest to spruce up the outfit.

Suits made from wool, silk and cashmere in attractive colors are ruling the roost. The adventurous ones can even go for more daring fabrics such as glenplaid and houndstooth.


We're really loving Australian custom, tailored menswear provider InStitchu at the moment. And with tailored suits starting at $299, you can design any of the looks above online and start dressing like Ryan Gosling yourself.
