Thoughtful Fashion for Men in 2013

9_LAI_STRIPE_027In Bill Cunningham’s first On the Street segment for 2013, the fashion photographer says the trend in men’s fashion is moving from dress-down Friday disheveled to thoughtfully and wonderfully dressed.

The difference is as striking, he adds, as when fitted jackets and trousers appeared in the 1950s replacing the very full silhouette seen in the decade prior.

Mr. Cunningham’s slideshow, a weekly feature in the The New York Times, is not specific to men’s hats, but in viewing the images, you’ll see everyday well-dressed men (in a cold Manhattan) wearing everything from an enormous Russian fur ushanka to a great-looking fedora, as well as a variety of flat caps, newsboys and watch caps.

He concludes that the overall direction that men’s fashion is taking is “to clean up your act. The dress-down Friday is not going to work.”

Happy New Year!
