Autumn-winter trends for the older man in 2018

It can be baffling to look at the range of current fashions available and decide which are suitable for you. If you are over 40, it can be particularly difficult to know how to be stylish. You probably want to replace some of the stranger choices of youth with something with a little more finesse, but perhaps you don’t know where to start. Here are some of 2018’s best fashion trends for autumn and winter to make your choice easier.

Hiking boots

These do not just have to be practical; they can also be smart. Current trends suggest they should be on the larger side, heavy and stomping, with commando soles. Add some traditional eyelets and make sure your trousers have a turn-up so you can see the top of the boot.

Trousers

Different designers pair them with tracksuit trousers (Giorgio Armani) or leggings (Louis Vuitton), but the trousers above your hiking boots should taper.

The best materials for trousers and jumpers are also on the heavy side – a mix of cashmere and wool, or maybe tweed.

Shirts

A light shirt under a light jumper gives you more options if the temperature changes and you need to reduce your layers. For mens designer shirts, a brand such as Farah provides a good range of options. You can find them at ejmenswear.com/men/farah.

Jumpers

Again, cashmere and wool or tweed are good looks. Add a crew neck and you have the perfect accompaniment to your trousers and hiking boots. Another option is to finish it off with a matching blazer.



Shearling

Sheepskin is popular this season. Hugo Boss, Hermès and Philipp Plein have all released a range of shearling clothes, from bombers to duffels to flight jackets. Sheepskin is popular this season. Hugo Boss, Hermès and Philipp Plein have all released a range of shearling clothes, from bombers to duffels to flight jackets. Try simple and classic, such as a canvas jacket with just some shearling trim (available from Kent and Curwen) or a bomber in chocolate brown leather (available from Belstaff). The best shearling can be expensive, but choose well and your shearling coat could last forever.

Some modern trends will certainly not suit the older man. Shell suits and luxury balaclavas are probably for the younger generation. Luckily, there are plenty of stylish options available for the over-forty crowd. Just follow the advice above, and you will be right on trend.
