In the fast-paced world of men's fashion, finding your unique style and staying up to date with the latest trends can be an exciting journey. With the recent Pitti Uomo and Milan Fashion week, the fashion world’s most important menswear trade shows have once again shown that classic menswear and craftsmanship is everything else but out of date.

So let's delve into the current menswear fashion trends, and have a look at the renaissance of timeless tailoring, what kind of pants or colors you should invest in, to curate a sustainable, Quiet Luxury wardrobe and at the biggest trend for 2024 when it comes to menswear fashion.

Men in Suits - Timeless style with personal details

We’re going back to the power of timeless style. The modern man is not chasing fleeting trends but rather embraces classic styles that transcend time. Stand-out shows like Armani, Prada, Zegna and even our very own collection show tailored suits that accentuate your physique, pleated wide trousers mixed with more casual items like a knit T-shirt.

Tip 1: You want to go with wide and oversized pants, create a relaxed and comfortable silhouette and add a touch of effortless elegance to your outfit.

Opt for wide-leg or oversized trousers in versatile colours like tobacco, black, grey or navy, allowing you to create a sophisticated base that can be combined with a modern twist. Don’t be afraid to mix your classic pieces with something bold like a distressed or transparent shirt – the subtle details tell the story of your unique taste. 

Quiet Luxury Understated Sophistication

TV Shows like ‘Succession’ may have made ‘Quiet Luxury’ a buzzword, but elegant, understated investment pieces have certainly been a trend that has lasted, especially in Italian menswear, throughout decades. It's about investing in unique high-quality pieces with impeccable craftsmanship and attention to detail.

Tip 2: Opt for styles in muted tones like earthy browns, ivory, grey or black, and pay attention to the fabric.

In the end, valuable or interesting materials are what fascinates on the second look. As seen for example, at Zegna you can combine blazers or shirts in complementary hues, creating a harmonious ensemble that showcases your impeccable taste. Again, fun details are allowed, but they shouldn’t scream at you, rather they should be discovered. We had a little take on that with our Andr1a blazer.

Versatility and Comfort

All right, we mentioned wide pants and oversized blazers, offering a sense of ease and comfort without compromising style, but what about the rest of our 2024 smart casual look?

Tip 3: The trend goes towards interesting, feel-good materials like fine knit T-Shirts, transparent tops or technical fabrics.

One of the beautiful things about fashion is, that it is trying to match the lifestyle of tomorrow. During Covid most of have definitely rediscovered the importance of comfort and practicality, so why not mix your sartorial wear with technical or sportswear pieces (Keyword: Gorpcore), as seen at Prada. Another thing you want to look at if you’re material is sustainable. Is it recycled or organic?

Important at this point is that you feel well with it. If you want to wear your oversized T-Shirt, go for it! If you always wanted to wear a mesh top, you may. If you feel more comfortable in a white button-up shirt: Get out there and starch your collars!

That brings us to the major trend of menswear fashion for 2024...

The most important Trend: Be Yourself

Sometimes we tend to forget, that the fashion world is a reflection of what happens globally, or at least in certain societies. New generations like Gen Z are rising with new confidence regarding individuality and gender stereotypes, so modern-day Menswear is trying to unite the best of both – empowering you to express yourself while giving you security and longevity through the age-old traditions of tailoring.

Tip 4: While you embark on your sartorial journey look for timeless elegance and expression, always remember – the main attraction of your appearance is you, not the outfit!

As you navigate the ever-changing world of menswear fashion, remember that your style is an extension of your identity. Embrace sustainable practices, discover your personal version of Quiet Luxury, and explore new looks like wide and oversized pants to curate a wardrobe that truly represents who you are.
