|CUT AND CLOTH
The slightly looser fit will be the defining menswear trend for Summer 2017. Just as everyone has grown used to seeing the body hugging suits that have defined the past seasons, we will now see the return of the pleated trousers and a more relaxed fit. Jackets will also be slightly longer.
Suits and casual jackets with large coloured window checks are very popular for Summer. Teamed with a light coloured jean or trouser make for an easy yet stylish look as seen in our style shot.
The return of the cuff on trousers and grey blue mixes in cloth colour will blend easily back with bold striped or crisp white shirts. Suits will retain shaping through the waist.
Bold blue and white striped shirts work well with plain blue and grey suits. Another strong look for the season is keeping suits and ties in similar tones to the shirt stripe. The white collar is preparing to make a comeback, as seen in the style shot.
