By |January 30th, 2018|

Pitti Uomo is always an excellent time to gauge where men’s fashion is headed for the next few seasons.  This year, the preeminent men’s fashion event definitely did not disappointment when it came to delivering exciting, yet wearable, trends for the coming months.  As Pitti is held in Florence, arguably the men’s tailoring capital of the world, the looks do typically skew on the tailored side, though the men who attend this event never fail to come up with interesting and modern ways to wear a classic suit.  Here, we’ve rounded up 8 of our top trends to come out of Pitti Uomo 2018; from cropped winter trousers to wine-colored suits, we’ve got all your questions about upcoming trends in men’s fashion covered.

Overcoats &  Cropped Trousers – Though the cropped trousers look has been in style for a while now, it’s usually reserved for the warmer months.  This year at Pitti Uomo, however, we’ve seen more of it worn in the cold (paired with socks) with an overcoat.  Though most paired these cropped trousers with socks, a brave few bared their ankles in the cold.

 

Wine Tones – A rich reddish purple wine tone is an excellent way to add some sophisticated color to your winter wardrobe.  Wether it’s a wine colored suit or a wine-toned overcoat, it’s rich color which immediately exudes luxury.

The Men Who Went #AllBlackEverything at the 2018 Golden Globes

By |January 10th, 2018|

2018’s Golden Globes were a history-making affair, in many ways.  It was the first time the Cecil B. DeMille was awarded to a black woman, it was the first time an Asian-American actor won an award for Best Actor in a TV Series – Musical or Comedy, it was the first time the majority of its attendees banded together to wear all black in support of the #MeToo and #TimesUp initiatives.  It was an incredible evening and an excellent platform on which to raise awareness for the endemic gender discrimination that we face not just in Hollywood but in all industries all over the world.  Here at Milk Shirts, our own founder Sheetal Pritmani is female, working in the men’s tailoring business, which is largely dominated by men.  Causes such as these are of the utmost importance to us, so we would like to praise the men who chose to join the women on the red carpet in their #AllBlackEverything looks, in support of the #MeToo and #TimesUp campaigns for gender equality.  Here’s some #AllBlackEverything inspiration for you to get behind the cause, too.

Justin Timberlake – Mr. Timberlake went for a pretty classic #AllBlackEverything look, with a single button tuxedo, featuring a peaked lapel in a satin finish and a matching satin butterfly bowtie.

Chris Hemsworth – Thor himself chose a more fashion-forward approach in a tone-on-tone black paisley brocade suit.  He kept the rest of his look on the more subtle side, with an unbuttoned black tuxedo shirt, sans tie, achieving and overall more relaxed feel.  He finished things off with black velvet shoes, which we think is a nice touch.

Bill Pullman – Similar to Mr. Timberlake, Bill chose a more traditional tuxedo look, however his take on it featured a […]
