Men’s Fashion Blends Colors and Patterns for a Daring Look
This fall, Lorne Wilson of the Ambassador Shop wants men to step outside of their comfort zone and try fashion they normally wouldn’t imagine.
With bright colors blending with geometric and surprising patterns, men’s fashion is taking risks and breaking the rules.
“We are a little different,” Lorne says. “Patterns and colors are in, but we are incorporating patterns and colors to give men a look they normally would not have thought of. You can start with a basic suit, but adding elements like different bright ties with different bright shirts, you create a style that’s unique.”
This season, pairing a Canaletto Vitale Barberis patterned dark navy suit and blue Tiglio shirt goes nicely with a red patterned Big Knot tie by Steven Land and creates a bold impression. Persol Sunglasses from Eyes Etc. tie the look together.
Big Knot ties from Steven Land embrace the wild patterns and almost neon colors, and Lorne says one basic suit can turn into five or six different outfits just by mixing up the color combinations.
“You want to offer flexibility. When you buy a suit, you want to buy shirts and ties that can be used with other suits or pants,” Lorne says. “You want to have a versatile wardrobe. So many times, men are going to go with a basic shirt or tie, but I like showing them a different look. At first, they are surprised because it’s nothing they would have chosen for themselves, but then they get so many compliments.”
Little pops of color, like on patterned belts from Lejon or fun and funky socks from Vanucci Couture, add a little friskiness to a staid outfit. Even shoes, like blue suede or mocha and fawn brown by Steven Land bring style all the way down to the toes.
Lorne says button-down shirts should have personality, and Tiglio brand likes to surprise with red checkers, hot pink and other vibrant colors. Hip and modern glasses and sunglasses from Eyes Etc. of Nichols Hills solidify this fall’s fashion statements.
“Accessories are fun too. We are breaking all the rules with accessories,” Lorne says. “What we are doing is getting men excited about fashion. We want them to come in every month to see what other combinations they can put together.”
