Throughout history menswear fashion hasn’t seen much evolution in silhouette in contrast to women’s wear. Over time the same basic equation has been formulated to create the menswear silhouette. Trends between decades have altered menswear fashion but tradition holds true when it comes to outerwear, formal wear and casual wear.

These fellas mastered the art of putting a new twist on an old classic. Incorporating traditional bow ties and suspenders with modern pieces such as Levi’s denim and Nike Air Maxes set an old school meets new school tone. You too can achieve this look by creatively selecting the right menswear accessory to stand out from the crowd. Vests, bowties, hats, and scarves are the simplest ways to freshen up any menswear look!
