5 Style Lessons From Men's Fashion Month

"The best fashion show is definitely on the street," pronounced the late, great photographer Bill Cunningham. Fresh from the SS20 men's shows, we're taking a leaf out of the books of the most stylish attendees. Here's everything you need to know from the streets of London, Milan and Paris.

  • Hawaii Five-0

    What do Magnum P.I., Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, and practically every single show-goer this season have in common? Answer: the Hawaiian shirt. A retro stalwart that made its comeback in SS19 thanks to Loewe and Neil Barrett, the tropical trend has gained momentum, and this season proved the ubiquitous print of fashion month. Aloha!

  • "Proceed with caution: side-step Tom Selleck territory and ditch the 'jorts' (read: jean shorts) in favour of timeless tailoring – or, if you're feeling bold, a clashing print."

Hands Free

Yet another product of the nineties redux, belt bags – a.k.a. 'fanny packs' for our friends across the pond – were a permanent fixture of the style set's accessories repertoire.

  • "Riff on a bandolier and buckle-up diagonally across the torso for a contemporary update."

Hat Trick

So firmly entrenched are straw hats in our national wardrobe that they'll often fly under the radar of seasonal trend reports. By contrast, this fashion month saw the Panama make its presence felt once and for all, championed by dapper chaps as the crowning flourish to lightweight blazers and linen safari jackets. Heads up: Stetson does a splendid range.    

Neutral Ground

Make way for camel trench coats, tan sweatpants, and pared-back layers cast in fifty shades of beige. According to the style set's summer uniform, tonal dressing is here to stay.

Sophisticated Steps

Walking a mile in another's shoes is categorically more appealing if those shoes are this season's refined tasselled loafers. Sport them foot loose and fancy free – that is, sans socks – and team with cropped chinos to add to their elegant mien. Baudoin & Lange and Stemar lead the charge with a comprehensive gamut of options.
