COLUMN: Men’s conform perspectives change from couture runways to campus

February 3, 2017 - fall Denim

Men’s Fashion Month came to a tighten this week with a final stop in New York City.

The conform shows started in London with designers such as Topman, Oliver Spencer and Vivienne Westwood display men’s collections.

After London, a men’s shows strike Milan, where Giorgio Armani, Prada and Diesel Black Gold presented their new men’s designs. Paris was next, and a common suspects, Balenciaga, Valentino and Hermés, did not disappoint.

Finally, in New York City, a creations of Boss, Ralph Lauren and Matthew Adams Dolan inspected their considerable reputations.

Hugo Boss is a world-renowned conform tag that has taken some feverishness in a past few years when it comes to a peculiarity and construction of his suits. According to sophomore business vital Matthew Menne, Boss’ fit peculiarity is not adult to customary from a product standpoint. 

“Hugo Boss suits are usually not adult to standard when it comes to quality,” Menne said. “They are fused, as against to canvassed, that creates a fit a lot stiffer. They usually do not form to your physique as well. Essentially, all we are profitable for is a code name.”

As conform fans saw in a women’s pre-fall collections denim is creation a outrageous quip in 2017. Diesel Black Gold and Matthew Adams Dolan were usually a few designers whose creations valid to determine with a return.

Dolan showed indigo-heavy overalls, jeans and light jumpsuits. Diesel showed a whole denim outfit, including a button-down shirt and loosely propitious trousers.

Another trend from a women’s shows that carried over into a men’s were oversized outerwear and knitwear. This trend appears a lot in Diesel’s collection with many oversized jackets and fur coats.

Prada’s tumble 2017 collection seemed to be an paper to a 1980s because it contains a accumulation of suede and splendid colored garments. The conform residence also chose to accessorize many of a models with berets — a good hold for a conform uncover in Italy.

Aside from a men’s runway shows, we was also meddlesome in what a men’s conform and impression is like here on IU’s campus.

Sophomore Donnie Brooks, another business major, explained that his impression depends on a occasion. To class, he likes to wear a span of 7 For All Mankind jeans, a classical Polo v-neck, a Marc Jacobs winter cloak and possibly L.L. Bean boots or Chukka boots depending on a weather.

When it comes to a recover of new men’s fashions, Brooks is not a fan.

“Personally, we hatred new men’s conform releases right now,” Brooks said. “It seems like all a new designs that they are entrance out with is weird, retro stuff.”


When asked about his fit preferences and style, he pronounced it depends on fit and that unless it goes to a tailor, it doesn’t have a chance. He pronounced he goes to Nordstrom, Saks and Joseph A. Banks to buy his suits.

“Personally, I’m a fan of a complicated two-piece slim fit fit for anything business-related,” Brooks said. “It is critical to have a navy, grey and black fit in your closet so we are prepared for all occasions. When it comes to going out during night with friends though, it is a good thought to have a few blazers in your closet that uncover some some-more personality.”

No matter what fit or impression we prefer, we can all determine that blavying — mixing black and navy — is never acceptable.
