  • Cropped bottoms. Floods are no longer a threat to soiling your pants. This cut was usually worn with very low or no socks; or in combination with a boot.

  • Minimalistic layering. Light dress shirts and fabrics that move easily were paired with the atypical suit jackets and pants. Band of Outsiders was a prime utilizer of this look. As summer creeps around once more and hotter weather plagues our cities; keep minimalistic layering in mind.

  • Two and three button suits. The look of leaving one button (or all) undone was prominent. Burberry Prorsum and Dsquared are fine examples of designers following this trend. This also facilitates some inner-suit air conditioning as the temperature raises outside.

  • Matching dress shorts. These were also very prevalent as pairings with suit jackets. As usual, lengths ran from quite short to a moderate 3/4 down the thigh. It all depends on you how high those shorts will go. Just think how cute those would look with a pair of suspenders!

in regards to the shorts, what is your opinion on leg hair?

Comment by ajax

@ajax: it should be thinned to the point of near death, though not removed.

Comment by Victoria Potter

wouldnt leg stubble be worse though?

Comment by ajax

@ajax: I think being hairless would look more bizarre

Thanks for the menswear coverage. I don’t know if local men (including myself) are going to try these trends (especially the blazer and shorts combination – great if you’re a British school boy), but it definitely creates an appreciation for the wardrobe classics (a non-gimmicky suit).

@Emmy: I think as long as the shorts are a shade longer (perhaps traditional dress length) they would be fine for N.America. I’m glad you enjoyed them. I hope someday Canadians and Americans can be as adventurous with their wardrobes as the Europeans!
