Men’s fashion this autumn/winter is a face-off between the cool, clean lines of the Modern Gentleman, and the rugged ‘workers’ aesthetic echoing the classic winter essentials of an old-world fishing village.
Whether you opt for the dapper, modern trend or a more casual, lumberjack approach, Westfield has the perfect winter wardrobe for you this season.
The Modern Gentleman harks back to a Victoriana era of tweeds, corduroy, duffle and pea coats, shirts and vests, argyle knitwear, brogues, loafers and a raft of charming, luxury accessories. Think sophistication and gentlemen's sports like polo, golf, fencing and horse riding. Mix in some beautiful tailoring, luxe British tweeds and Italian wools and, for a more modern twist follow the crisp, clean androgynous lines of Sweden. Well-dressed and well-groomed is the key to this look, so be sure to finish your winter sophisticate with decent lick of hair product, a close shave and some quality debonair accessories like a timeless watch, beautiful shoes or smart headwear to match. The Modern Gentleman is capturing that old-world charm and mixing it with some new-world cool to create a hybrid look that takes the best from both.
For the classic outdoorsy males, this winter is about refining or taming the beast while still embracing the cozy coats, cable knits, checked shirts, denim and cargos which embody the practicality you love. Workwear this season takes on a slightly more well-dressed approach, taming your rough edges with a sense of masculine charm. Throw on a great coat or jacket to hide all manner of sins underneath with workwear classics like the pea-coat, the duffle and the bomber. If you're game - try a sports jacket or blazer in thick Brit-tweed or navy or grey wool for a more preppy feel and a polished touch, while still retaining your casual aesthetic. Layer basics like white, navy or grey tees with the classic checked shirt and button up the neck for a more preppy vibe. Knitwear like jumpers or vests take all manner of necklines and heritage patterns that hark back to school days or the fisherman's jumper, along with cable/chunky knits and cardigans with leather panel details, can bring an edgier vibe to the more classic casual staples.
