The Ides of March have come and gone and we are well into spring, 2014. You are ready to refurbish your wardrobe for spring and summer, but you don’t want to be old fashioned or out-dated. You are wondering “what are the trends in men’s fashions for 2014.” Perhaps the best place to see what is “in” is an Esquire slide show of 78 new fashions from designers in Milan and Paris. Browse through these and select the best styles for you, then find them at your local haberdashery. Double breasted suits were very popular and were presented by Dior Homme, Louis Vuitton, Gucci and Junya Watanabe, among others. Blues, especially slate blue, are the top colors for spring, but other popular colors are yellow, mustard and off white. Some designers included brick, orange and sea foam green. Dior Homme used navy blue in a double-breasted jacket, a stripped nautical-look pullover and a silk Bomber jacket. Large plaids and pin stripes were popular for suits. Denim is never out of style. Calvin Klein presented a classic denim jacket, while Junya Watanabe offered a more modern update of the denim jacket. The off-white business suit presented by Calvin Klein was very attractive and would look stylish with retro toe-cap shoes by Holbrook, or with brown shoes from British Leather.
