2012 Fabric

As we all sit and wait for news about the additions to our team in 2011 we must keep in mind the draft is well over a month away!

So in the meantime let’s go a step further and discuss 2012 fabric trends for menswear. 2012 should be an exciting year with the launch of the NFL uniforms made by Nike and the continuation of causal luxury fabrics.

“Casual luxury continues to be the driving trend in men’s wear fabrics for spring-summer 2012, seen in an array of noble qualities with a relaxed, sporty feel. Sportswear fabrics are looking cleaner and more luxurious, while tailoring trends fall into two camps: ultraclassic sartorial fabrics or updated, lighter and softer reinterpretations of traditional cloths.

For example, at the recent Première Vision Paris fabric fair, a number of British mills introduced relaxed yet ever-elegant versions of Savile Row-flavored tailoring fabrics in fresh, light colors like sky blue, olive and burnt orange. These included a clean-cut herringbone linen design by Abraham Moon & Sons and gossamer T-shirt qualities by Johnstons of Elgin, a specialist in cashmere and fine wools based in Scotland.”–WWD

I don’t know about you, but I don’t even wear menswear and I am excited for what the future holds!
