Mens Trend // Stripes

Stripes are having another rapid growth in the mens fashion scene. Stripes have been a female dominated trend for the past couple of seasons, but now we are seeing an injection of stripes into the men’s arena.The stripes are almost becoming a timeless piece of clothing for any man’s wardrobe.

They are jumping onto the newest jumpers, knits and tees, and are not disappointing! The common stripe in black and white or navy and white, creates endless options of outfits. My favourite stripe outfit is a striped navy and white tee, flat blue jeans turned up and a black or navy pair of vans! But why follow my favourite striped outfit, when you can create your own at SurfStitch.

Sunglasses | Mens Accessories

It may be that you’re fighting the early winter sun or the glare of the morning surf check, or it may just be that there is no reason at all. Everyone needs a pair of sunglasses that not only are functional but that are down right awesome! They provide the finishing touch to any sunny day outfit with the range of styles today.

Whether it’s the matte black finish, the tortoise look or the old school plain black look, you’re covered. Even if you had all three it wouldn’t be a crime, would it?

Brands are creating such a diverse range of styles that have you ready for any occasion. Valley eyewear are pushing the boundaries with their oversized, rounded edges and wolves styles of glasses. Epokhe are taking it back to the old school, with their conservative round lens style and it’s working!

Don’t be influenced by just these two, check out the mass amount of styles and colours dropping in at SurfStitch.

Trending in men’s fashion, the leather and PU (also known as Polyurethane) look is in and is invading the fashion scene. It is fast becoming a timeless staple for any man’s wardrobe in winter. The material is one that once invested in will last an eternity and can be worn for any occasion.

Jackets to vests to pants, leather & PU is seeping it’s way into every item of clothing. Zanerobe have taken on the trend, by incorporating it into their sure shot pants and shorts.

Introduce plain tees and bold fleeces to really set off the strong look that the leather does portray. Whether it is the real deal leather, the imitated type or the PU it should be added to your wardrobe!
