Herewith, our menswear picks of the week:
The double-breasted jacket: The ‘70s are making a huge comeback and with it, the return of the double-breasted jacket. Opt for a slimmer cut, shorter length, with six buttons, a wider lapel, and a bolder peak.
The sleeveless tunic: To the untrained eye, it would seem like any other oversized tank. But take note of the boxy proportions, the longer hemline, the wider shoulder strap, and the higher crewneck. Just make sure you wear it with slim fit trousers to taper the whole look. Otherwise, when worn with shorts, one might have the tendency of looking sloppy.
Pattern on pattern: Black and white stripes have a tendency to look too harsh especially when worn from head to toe. Break it up by wearing separates in two different shades of blue and in varying stripe width.
Pegged jeans: Shaped like a carrot going narrower as it heads down the ankles, these sorts of pants can easily pass for something your father would have worn in the ‘80s. To update your look, wear them with a crisp tailored shirt that falls in the right places—not oversized.
Breaking prints: Overall prints can be quite overwhelming especially when it contains multiple colors. Stick to small scattered prints in muted dark hues and break them up by adding bold solids in your outfit.
