We remember bombers as a huge hit of the previous season, but guess what, they’re still here and making the same impact, this time with an extra punch. Now you can make a statement with your bomber by wearing a piece embellished with hand embroidery or interesting badges that will make this cold season a lot hotter.

It’s the simplest dressing rule of all time: black goes with black, grey goes with grey and so on. You can go with the classic look showcased by Lou Dalton and Saint Laurent this season, or make it a bit more interesting by opting for Dolce & Gabbana inspired pieces with full-frontal details. Regardless of the style you choose, you should know that a monochromatic combination is equally perfect for formal events and a preppy style look.
Crazy About Duffels

By its very nature, autumn/winter fashion puts focus on outerwear, and duffels are one of the favorite outer pieces of this season. From hooded duffel coats to plasticized sleeves, outerwear is more creative than ever. Some of the best colors to choose are camel, black, forest green and the indispensable copper.
Scotland the Stylish

There is something inherently stylish about Scottish men and their traditional weave, and many of the famous fashion houses, such as Brioni and Dsquared2 , obviously think the same. This season tartan is going beyond the characteristic kilt and enters the world of suits, pants, shirts, and some other contemporary designs.
Do It Like Mr. Bond

From Sir Roger Moor and Sean Connery to Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig, roll neck jumpers were a style statement for the most stylish agent there is; we are, of course, talking about 007. A turtleneck is a piece every man can wear and incorporate into his unique style. You can combine it with a pair of jeans and a duffel coat or pair it up with a classic monochrome suit.

Charles Baudelaire once described a dandy as one who elevates aesthetics to a living religion, and a modern-day dandy also strives to do that. Fashion giants, like Moschino, Dries Van Noten and Gucci, made their goal to show us how to live up to that ideal in this time when everyone is striving to fit in. There are no specific rules in this trend; you just need to show your uniqueness and stand out from the crowd.
Who Says Superheroes Are Not Real?

Besides superpowers, what’s the main thing typical of a superhero? That’s right, his cape. In the 19th century, a cape was the main part of male attire, but in time, women “stole” it for themselves, and now, these coats without sleeves (with openings for arms) are finally back on menswear runways.
These were just some of this season’s fantastic trends to try out. Hope you like them, and you’ll enjoy wearing them.
