The motorcycle jacket is a type of leather jacket that never seems to go out of style. A New York City based clothing manufacturing company, Schott NYC, that was founded by two brothers was the first to develop the leather motorcycle jacket in 1928. The longevity of the motorcycle style is attributed to a great functional design and the ability to adapt it to modern trends without losing the original concept.
For 2013, menswear designers have put their own stamp on the leather motorcycle jacket. Kenneth Cole takes the classic design with a short rise, asymmetrically zippered front flap, and uses a deep emerald green distressed leather and gold zippered hardware to incorporate the trend of color.
With the spring/summer 2013 Fashion Week previews finally coming to a close, designers showcased plenty of new footwear trends for men on their Paris, London, Milan and NY runways. The overall message that emerged from the catwalks was that next year’s men’s footwear is going to bolder and brasher than ever before, with statement shoes becoming a key piece of outfits rather than just the finishing touch.
If you’re looking to update your footwear collection for next spring, these are the standout trends you need to incorporate if you want to step out in style next year.
When the temperature is rising, you’ll want to reach for something cool in your closet. A great tank will be just what you are looking for. The open neckline and sleeveless style will take you to the beach, out for a stroll in the park, or sightseeing on the town.
When you are out shopping for tank tops, you might want to take a look past the packaged ones in the department store. Designers have a way of using fit and style to turn something ordinary, into something much more interesting.
