What is it about boys with accents? Could it be their fashion style? GQ seems to think so. Now taking over the tele with the London Games and the radio with One Direction, it is time for the British to take over our wardrobes as well. Appearing on NBC’s Today Show, GQ previewed some of the best upcoming trends in men’s fashion inspired by British design.
Monk shoes- This formal style of shoe features no lacing and has a large buckle across the front of the tongue of the shoe. Featured with either one or two straps, this shoe can be paired with a business suit or worn more casually with tailored jeans.
Three- Piece Suit- Hooray for the return of the three- pieced suit. Nothing quite says class like a trim vest underneath a fitted blazer. Seen on the August cover of GQ Joseph Gordon-Levitt handsomely wears a three- piece suit and simple tie. How much better can you get?
Millerain Jacket- This jacket was popularized by English royalty as a hunting jacket. The Millerain Jacket is made from waxed cotton so it has somewhat of a shine to it. Quickly becoming available in a various stores, this one from J. Crew is from the original British Millerain Company that was established in 1880.
Other examples of British inspired trends are a double-breasted suit and classic bow ties. Are you as smitten with the Brit look or would you rather keep the trends across the pond?
