Trend forecasting is an interesting skill that we both have past experience in. Granted, we do not get paid to predict what will be on the Milan runways, but we still pay close attention to the subject and convey it to you.
Men began the blazer and jean craze about 5 years ago. Before then, it was considered completely archaic and 1980’s-ish to wear such a look. But the hipsters of the world brought that sexy back and the boys of suburbia brought it to its demise. It is summer and time for new beginnings. A layered look such as a blazer is not summer weather appropriate.
We are advocating a new layering option: the cardigan in cotton or a blend. It can be worn with or without buttons, zipped up or down or simply open. We like the idea of bringing back the casual neighborhood, Mr. Rogers style. Just remember to leave the tie at home.
