Looking across the board the overall theme seemed to be a mixture of the 1940’s wide leg trousers, double breasted blazers and shearling jackets mixed with the 70’s polo neck’s, paisley prints & scarves.
Here are my predictions of the menswear autumn winter 2015 trends…
Magazines & bloggers are already talking about this and its set to be a huge trend for next season, so my advice is to get yourself down to a vintage shop now before they are all gone!

Straps & fringing
I cant see this being a huge trend but it was seen across many streetwear designers

From fur to quilting, patchwork or head-to-toe, texture is a great way to make a statement next season.

This may not take off for autumn winter, but all over neutrals were seen on a number of catwalks as well next season.

We’ve moved a long way from the shaggy just got out of bed look, as the trend for autumn winter is slicked back or flat and side parted.

So that’s my round-up! I did spot a number of Bermuda suit shorts on the catwalks, but I can’t see that taking off during the chilly winter months!
