From business casual to sporty looks for the slopes, this Lakewood institution is selective about the trends it follows because its customers are discerning and often looking at purchasing investment pieces that will live in a wardrobe for years
Here are the trends worth following, according to John Geiger, menswear buyer:
• High-pile fleeces with Sherpa lining are continuing in popularity. Brands like Patagonia deliver in this department, Geiger says. “We have some fun colors that’ll brighten up crappy winter days,” he says.
• Updated classics with a retro kind of '70s twist are happening, specifically corduroy shirt jackets and corduroy in general. Think pants, shirts, overshirts or shirt jackets in colors like whiskey brown, navy blue, olive green and tan.
• Novelty sweaters from brands like Polo, Ralph Lauren and Swedish companies such as Fjallraven and Holebrook are in. These can include windproof sweaters that have an interior lining that make them easier to wear with a collared shirt. Also, Native American-inspired sweater designs from Pendleton are going to be big this fall, Geiger says.
