Monday Fashion: Men’s Fashion

Men’s fashion sometimes seems a bit neglected, in comparison to the many bright and varied clothes available to women. One might even wonder, do men only like simple colors and lines for their wardrobe? The answer is no, it is a modern fashion for men to dress simply.

Perhaps this stems from American diplomats in 1853 being asked by the American government not to wear court dress anymore. From The Economist:

In 1853 it asked its diplomats not to wear court dress: frippery was not worthy of a serious-minded young republic. Unfortunately, at royal receptions American diplomats in dark tailcoats were sometimes confused with butlers.

At any rate, bright colors are not often in fashion in men, and men often seem to have trouble choosing clothes. Never fear, help is at hand!

Esquire has an entire blog, The Style Blog, devoted to men’s fashion.
