What I am about to share this week may have it’s origins in Mexico or among the native American Indians. Having researched what is trending now in men’s wear, I, like Solomon, concluded that there is nothing new under the sun.
So, what really is trending now?
The Longline T-shirt
The more things change, the more they remain the same.
Next up is the popular Yeezy

Simply judging from the name which coincidentally rhymes with sleazy, you can imagine what the clothes would look like. Upon close examination, I recognized that this idea brought forward by Mr. West might actually have come from up North, North America – the American Indian.
So the old looks very much like the new. The exceptions being that the new is more refined and costs a ton load of money.
Then there is the issue of Baggy (Roomy) Pants.
These are pants with significantly more leg room. You may at one point or another thought that those were really phased out. We saw the boot cut, slim fit and skinny pants dominate men’s fashion for more than a decade. Checking the major fashion magazines (Esquire and GQ) I’m seeing a return of this type of pants.
It then seems like we’re doing a lot of recycling. Not bad if we would extend this to environmental issues. But ever so often we see a particular style fade only to resurface years later. My advice then is to not be too quick to throw out something that is “out of style.” It may very well be trending within another few years. What do you have in your attic?
