The gauntlet has been laid for men’s fashion for 2008. Samantha Critchell of the Associated Press polled a list of men’s fashion knowitalls for their thoughts on the direction in this area. The brow-raising quotes probably won’t be enough to get every man running for a Barney’s, but there’s a lot of truth in the words of the seers.
Tyler Thoreson of Men.style.com tells Critchell “There’s a much narrower spectrum within which you can work in men’s fashion. You’ll see the pendulum switch from dressing up to casual as every generation starts shopping for itself…I like that the tie is a form of fashion rebellion.”
Another expert polled told Critchell that she loves that men’s fashion is finally dressing up. Will 2008 be the year of the well coiffed man? Talk to us at the end of the year.
