Curious about what’s to come for men in AW14? Some trends to note are slim slacks and roll necks as seen by Tom Ford, and the appearance of dark lefty greens most notably shown by Gieves & Hawkes. It seems AW14 was much more about tailoring than patterns, with less structured outerwear seen all over the catwalk but best showcased by Hackett London.

Another colour surprise was the prolific appearance of orange, notably seen at Hardy Ames’ show. Big fishermen’s jumpers and biker jackets (after seasons of collarless baseball jackets) were prevalent amongst many designers from Tom Ford to Matthew Miller. That said, both baseball jackets and check suits aren’t going anywhere as showed by Hardy Ames and Oliver Spencer. (Left to right: Hackett London, Matthew Miller, Oliver Spencer)
One of the more surprising trends seen on the catwalk was a number of designers notorious for bright colours turning to the opposite end of the spectrum with a focus on monochrome. E Tautz and Tom Ford showcased all-black outfits with white patterns/trims while Agi & Sam took more of a black-and-white plaid-pattern approach. (Left to right: E Tautz, Agi & Sam)
What about accessories you ask? If there’s one accessory any man should buy this season it’s an oversized boxy piece of leather hand luggage (and maybe a felt fedora for those who are a bit riskay). (Left to right: Christopher Raeburn, Oliver Spencer).
