Bye Bye Skinny Ties & Suits

Posted on October 27 2016

For the past two years, the existence of incredibly tight suits, pants and trim ties reigned the streets of wall street along with every modern suit wearer in the USA and abroad. It's the natural evolution of menswear leaving many insider influencers to believe the fashion illuminati encouraged less fabric and tighter silhouettes to squeeze out more margin while being trapped in the difficult global economical playing field. 

However today, the tides have changed as many leading fashion houses are following the ideologies of neapolitan tailoring and choosing general comfort over tight pulling jackets, restricting trousers and two inch tie widths.

Skinny suits and ties are gradually falling out of fashion and the expression of tailored relaxation is taking over. Sharper lapels and sleeve cuffs are becoming softer, more rounded and trousers have just a little more drape and yet still allows moderate taper from the knee down. The most popular bottom half-width today is at 8 inches with a total circumference of 16 inches. 

Pleats still have not risen from the dead as even bigger men prefer flat front trousers with complimentary leg widths.

Today, Gent Row is offering soft shoulder construction and moderately tapered suitings with ties at 2.75 to 3 inches in width.

Our Guy La Ferrera boutique in Boca Raton has a full fall selection following the new modern trend with many top suiting designer brands including Canali, Pal Zileri, Belvest, Samuelsohn & Brioni to name a few. Our merino wool selections still remain the fabric of choice for everyday wear while cashmere and silk blend still remain our main go-to for luxury outings.
