The fashion industry is an extremely competitive one and for many decades it has been dominated by fashion for women. Although men have had their fair share of the fashion industry, it is as though the last decade or two has delivered more for men than in the past.

This year, the trend seems to continue, but there are a couple of items or fashion essentials that stand out this season. The great thing about men’s fashion is that the changes are subtle, so with a couple of essentials, you will always look as though you climbed out of a magazine.

The plain white t-shirt

Walk into any men’s fashion store and you will find a couple of plain white t-shirts on display. It is not as though this item has never been in fashion, but for this year the man maketh the clothes. However, you will want to fill your shirt out with a bit of lean muscle.

With health and fitness becoming trendy, there should be a way for a guy to show off all the hard work that went into the sculpting efforts. So if you have the body for it, fit and the fabric is the only factor you need to worry about.

No-Tuck shirts

If there is one item of clothing that the bigger and taller than average guy wants this season, it is no tuck shirts for big and tall men. Without looking unkempt and sloppy, these shirts are designed with shorter bodies and longer sleeves to enhance style and comfort.

Westport Big & Tall no-tuck shirt range is perfectly designed to cover the belt, but still, give access to the pockets. They offer a wide range of no tuck shirts, perfect for every occasion from formal to casual wear. No more buying oversized shirts to get the right arm length.

Outdoor technical pants

Not everything functional has to be ugly. The new ranges of technical pants are bringing the great outdoors to the fashion industry. Rugged is in and technical pants are a must in any man’s wardrobe this season. You do not have to be a fan of the outdoors to rock a pair of technical pants.

With a rugged pair of boots and a pleated shirt, you can scour any urban jungle. The great thing about these pants is that they are functional, comfortable, and breathable. Depending on the brand you choose, the fabric is quick-drying and tear-proof. Then again, a bit of rip character makes them look even better.

Chino shorts

It seems that the world-wide pandemic had a bit of an influence on the fashion industry as well as many people have now transitioned to a work from home wardrobe. This year, the formal suit has made way for the humble and much more casual chino short.

The preppy style short has made it to the top tiers in the fashion world before, but this year it has made a dominant stand as not only a weekend essential, but an everyday go-to item. Look for pastel and neutral colors, but for the adventurous ones out there, striped slim fit shorts are the way to go.

Leather boots

Farms-style leather boots have blasted onto the scene this year and it looks as though they are here to stay for a while. These shoes are rugged and like a fine wine, they just get better and more comfortable with time.

Wear and tear and scuff marks give them that extra bit of character. That is great news for most guys out there who do not have the time to shine their shoes every day.
