U.S.A. Forever: American Flag Clothing for Men

american flag clothing

Whether you’re spending the glorious three day weekend at your rich aunt’s annual Memorial Day barbecue bash, jet skiing on the lake with your crew, or keeping it laid back at a pool party, it’s imperative that you look good.

I know not everyone wants to look like a walking American Flag, and that’s totally cool. If you don’t want your whole look to scream “MERICA!” just throw on a cool Americana snapback hat and you’ll be good to go.

If you’re a guy who’s more comfortable dressing for the holiday, step up your game with a red, white and blue tank top or American flag swim trunks. Rowdy Gentleman basically runs the game when it comes to patriotic clothing, but you can find a ton of other killer Americana apparel here.

Menswear Trends for Fall

We all know that fall is a time for layers. All too soon, jackets, dark wash denim, long-sleeve wovens, hoodies, and close toe kicks will replace our standard summer styles. This season, we foresee that closets will be filled with a mix of menswear styles ranging from classic to eccentric, and for those guys who are daring enough to venture outside the style ‘norm’ (my favorite), expect to see the truly unexpected from men’s fashion trends this fall.

 As far as Fall 2013 goes, expect to notice an introduction of different silhouettes and styles popping up in menswear. No longer are the days of blatant branding and in your face masculine fits– think boxy, baggy shapes and unimaginative logos that are there to make your chest look like a free advertising space (even though you paid for it). I – a female that loves to see a man with style– am so excited to see the revival of bare basics (think seksi white V-neck) and innovative graphics that take inspiration from actual real life issues and artistic references. Have you seen some of the graphic tees out there for both men and women? Pretty funny stuff…

Duck hoody

The use of quirky, vintage-inspired, but often unusual prints can be seen across the board in menswear this fall. We have already seen hints of print– like the mallards in this hoodie– in key items like button downs, t-shirts, sweaters, socks, and even embroidered on certain pants. Now that the weather has cooled down we can combine them with outdoor inspired pieces like (our favorite) the Men’s Bivy Down Vest from Patagonia.

Expect to see the camo print transitioning over from summer into the cooler fall/holiday seasons. Not all of the menswear community will be getting ready for hunting season– different type of camo. Think military camo; from traditional bright greens and olive hues. Designer’s deconstructed interpretation on the print can be seen making its way from the runways to the streets, and we’re excited to see all the different ways that men will be wearing the camo print. We love the idea of combining two trends by pairing this men’s chambray dinosaur print button down woven with the 1897 Men’s Twill Pant in camo print.

Layer this heather grey men’s button down sweater over top of the printed woven for extra warmth when a light jacket is not needed. Autumn is my favorite season both men’s and women’s fashion; the colder temperatures allow for more freedom when layering–especially for men– that summer’s heat does not. Jackets can be layered over sweaters, hoodies, or full zips, which will pair over top of long sleeve henleys, thermals, t-shirts, button down wovens, and the endless amount of options goes on.

Ready to step outside your comfort zone, guys? This new shift in men’s fashion has created numerous options and a large variety of ways for men’s scarves to be introduced into your closet. Big, bold statement scarves will eventually find their way around the neck of men everywhere in twisted-up, knotted tight, and in printed styles. Go for an easy infinity knit scarf to introduce to your closet if you’re unsure of how to work a scarf into your autumn outfit agenda. This simple men’s plaid scarf is easy to style with sweater and jacket combos. Dark indigo denim washes are essential for heightening the handsome factor to your look. A timeless pair of dark wash men’s selvedge denim jeans in a straight fit are classic and have a never-ending ‘cool’ factor.  Take a look at our selection of men’s Silver Jeans and our exclusive 1897 denim line for men to find your favorite fit and wash for fall.
