Fresh takes on classic garments a key menswear trend for winter 2019
Article posted: July 1, 2019
Menswear trends for winter are all about fresh takes on classic styles, pointing to new cuts and colours for crowd favourites like knits and chinos.
There’s a reason certain clothes are called ‘classics’. They are so super comfortable and flattering on everyone that even the most fickle of fashion’s finest refuse to give them up.
The big news in Camberwell for menswear in winter 2019 is that the must-have items are all fresh takes on the classics.
Of course, fashion being fashion, there are some key distinctions and variations, and Camberwell has them all covered – as well as stocking the one key item that every well-dressed man will have in his wardrobe this winter.
The stylish knit
What do you get if you cross a good old dad cardigan with aristocratic knit? Just the hottest ticket in menswear for winter 2019!
This season, the jumper and cardigan have had a style transformation – just as comfortable, just as cosy, only with an emphasis on quality and design.
This winter’s stylish knit can be chunky for outdoors, or smoother and finer for time spent indoors by the fire. Key design features include interesting necklines, or buttons down the front or across the shoulder.
It’s so versatile it’ll take you from brunch to an afternoon at the footy.
The classic chino
The fashion gods are smiling on men this season, making what they want to wear and what they need to be wearing on trend.
Chinos are comfortable and relaxed and can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion, whether it’s just being at home on date night or out and about as weekend wear.
The bold blazer
The best thing about the classic vibe is that it creates a neutral palette for some audacious, funky hero pieces – and this season it’s the bold, checked blazer.
Winter 2019 will be remembered as the season of the checked blazer. Just remember: the cuts are slim, but the checks are large, and contrasting colours seal the deal.
This winter in Camberwell, Country Road has gone down the traditional route with the full British look and classic check but in bright, contrast colours, while Trenery is embracing the bolder windowpane check in stark black and grey.
Who says classic style has to be boring?
