The Menswear edit

From eye-popping knits and 70s twists to an homage to Americana, menswear makes a defiant stand this season.

After a tumultuous first half of the year, find out how designers are fighting back with a heady mix of expressionism, nostalgia and realism, and a colour palette that will give you reason to smile.

Contemporary corduroy
Cord is making a comeback. And these are the key pieces to make pulling this look off, easy.

Once the predilection of geography teachers, corduroy is now well and truly a fashion fabric and we can get behind that. The super tactile cloth has been rejuvenated by the likes of Marks & Spencer in tailoring, trousers and oversized outerwear, adding texture and depth to baggy silhouettes. At McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Bridgend, you’ll find stunning co-ord suits in rich autumnal hues by Moss Bros, but the real head-turners come via Jaeger in the shape of funky cord outerwear. Sophistication is a tonal look of browns and beige, but be sure to break it up with a few pops of bright blue, orange or yellow hues.

Function, meet fashion

Take cues from utilitarian styling with protective layering, oversized fits and functional details.


If 2020 was the year we had to be ready for anything, then designers took note with a utilitarian trend that focused on functionality. Brands such as Calvin Klein took a protective approach with oversized padded layers, quilted outerwear, and more pockets that even the modern man could fill with personal gadgets. With coordinated commuter trousers reinforcing the streetwear-inspired look, there’s nothing that this aesthetic isn’t ready for. Pair it with your favourite sneakers and sweatshirts and you’re good to go.



We look forward to welcoming you back
