Top 5 Men’s Fall Fashion Inspired by The Sudarso Brothers

 

The sun is still beating down on us here in California, but we’re hopeful that cool fall weather will show up any day now (and save us from our horribly high AC bills).

So before the chilly season shows up, make sure your wardrobe is up to date and prepared. For today’s #TBT, we’re going to show you some of our most favorite men’s fall fashion inspired by Yoshi and Peter Adrian Sudarso. Clearly these guys have it figured out– it’s a year later and we still love these looks.

 


 

1) The Leather Look
It’s like Christmas came early! The boys give us just a hint of the “bad boy” leather look.

ASIA STREET STYLE: Menswear Inspirations

 

To the annoyance of my husband, I am one of those women who’d rather peruse the men’s section on shopping excursions; it’s not a matter of being anti-frill and fluff, but rather a curiosity to see how menswear styles change compared to the fleeting moments of its gender counterpart.

The persistent availability of tailored trousers with polished shirts and jackets are at the core of a less experimental framework that makes up the majority of men’s fashion. There is significance to the fact that the main components of suiting have been carried through from the 18th century until present-day, a continuum which doesn’t hold true for women’s styles if you ever decide to research historical fashion plates.

This unchanging calibre has made it’s way into inspiring designers for contemporary womenswear; the trend continues well into this year and will likely emerge again during the Spring and Summer 2015 shows that are about to kick off with New York Fashion Week next month.

To end my ongoing preoccupation with history and timeless quality in apparel, here are some of my favorite menswear inspired street looks from Japan and Korea.

ASIA STREET STYLE: Street Smart Suits For Men!

Womenswear trends tend to be my go-to when sharing Asia’s street fashion, but I often find myself examining menswear distinctions between the United States and Korea. Suits are a timeless classic that I’ve grown accustomed to seeing the standard dark solids and ties being worn, but check out these diverse approaches to suiting found on streets of Seoul. I can’t help but appreciate the adventurous styling choices.

When summer temperatures along with humidity are unbearable, consider going for shorts.  The thin, woven seersucker facilitates heat away allowing air circulation, and despite the fabric’s natural wrinkled appearance it still provides a polished, clean look.

Well mixed prints always catches my attention, but in this case what drew me first to this street portrait was the lapel pin.  Sometimes simply using a small accessory can add prominence among the already bold motifs.

Certain rules are meant to be broken.  Conservative suiting conventions call to cut the pant hem so it slightly skims the shoe and laces, but the higher cut hems on this suit give an ultramodern feel.  Opting for bright socks outside of the coordinating colors is daring and brilliant in this fashion forward style.
