AW13 Menswear Trends Preview

The new season is nearly upon us, so we’re giving you an insight into some of the biggest menswear trends for Autumn and how you can get ahead of the crowd now.

AUTUMN WINTER MENSWEAR TREND 1:  Sports

Trend 1: Sports

The sports trend has been reigning for the past few seasons and it’s set to continue into Autumn/Winter, with some slight updates. Basketball and baseball influences are still strong but there be prepared for some ice hockey and ski inspired pieces. Ice hockey influences translate into oversize silhouettes with cocoon shaped sweaters and voluminous shorts. Sweatshirts are the new hoody and are perfect for layering up in the cold weather. The A Question Of Stars Raglan Sweatshirt in Grey has an American all-star feel about it and the raglan sleeves help to create a coocoon shape. Drop crotch shorts are great for adding volume to a silhouette, so why not pair your sweatshirt with the Delusion Nordpak Shorts in Charcoal or match it with the Blood Brother Molle Shorts in Grey for a tracksuit appearance.

When it comes to American inspired sports pieces, our new brands Sik Silk and Scribblers Tee Room have plenty to offer in the form of classic baseball jerseys and lustrous basketball vests. These versatile pieces can be layered up to make them more appropriate for the colder months. Why not layer the Sik Silk Classic Baseball Jersey Cream over a hoody such as the Adidas SLVR Zipped Hooded Sweatshirt Grey or wear the Scribblers Tee Room Kings Sublimation Vest Multi-Coloured with a varsity jacket to complete the sports look.

Quilting is another update on the sports look. Get the look with the Cruyff Recopa Classic Quilted Trainers in Black and the A Question Of Quilted Varsity Jacket in Black.

Trend summary:

  • Cobalt blue and teal and petrol blue
  • Winter brights: orange
  • Cocoon shape sweaters – bonded fabric help create the cocoon shape
  • Ice hockey influences – big shoulder, voluminous shorts paired with contrastring tight leggings
  • Quilting – on sweatshirts and joggers
  • Sweatshirts are the new hoodies
  • Slogan tees and sweatshirts

AUTUMN WINTER MENSWEAR TREND 2: PUNK

Trend 2: Punk

Be a rebel next season with the punk trend. This trend is all about the 90s, leather, studs and plaid. No brand encompasses this trend more than ABE. An acronym for All Black Everything, this brand is true to it’s name, featuring lots of black, leather and studs. Start the look off with one of their sweaters such as the ABE Bane Sweatshirt in Black/Black featuring leather buckles on the shoulder or try the ABE Doom T-Shirt in Black which features studded shoulders.

No punk look is finished without bit of leather, so invest in a leather jacket this Autumn/Winter for ultimate warmth and ultimate style. We recommend the  Delusion Hydropolis Leather Jacket in Black for it’s double zip fastening. Wear with the slim fit Delusion Civil Trousers in Grey which feature zips on the back of the legs and the Denham Pin Check Shirt in Blue to add some plaid to the look. Get the 90s look by wearing your check shirt tied around your waist and adding a beanie, such as the Blood Brother BB Carrier Beanie Hat Black.

Look out for textured knits and more plaid shirts arriving at Intro Clothing next season!

Trend Summary:

  • Plaid
  • 90s influences: wear plaid shirt around the waist
  • Ombre plaid – black fading into plaid
  • Soft mohair texture jumpers
  • Tape and banding on trousers
