Fall is definitely upon us, and we have the scoop on the hottest fashion and grooming trends every guy needs to know about! Esquire’s Senior Fashion Editor, Wendell Brown joined me for an interview yesterday to dish on the top fashion trends for guys this fall, the must have basics every man needs in his wardrobe, and much more.
Candace Rose: Fashion week just wrapped. What are some styles we can take from the runway to the streets?
Wendell Brown: “We saw a lot of great trends, including athletic inspired things, but also a lot more wearability, so that’s great news for real guys.”
Candace Rose: What are some basics that every guy should have in his wardrobe?
Wendell Brown: “Well, I happen to be wearing the first one – it’s a fantastic hoodie, and a hoodie is a great core item for most guys to have. It’s from Hanes, it’s their new fleece hoodie. It’s also available as a zip front. One of the best things about it is it’s warm without being too bulky, so it’s light and really easy to wear. It’s great to throw on one of those cool fall nights. It’s super soft on the outside and soft on the inside, but one great thing is it’s available for everybody – men, women and kids so no one is going to steal it or ‘borrow it’ and never return it. It’s available at mass retailers nationwide.”
Candace Rose: Are there any other must have items that guys need this fall?
Wendell Brown: “Absolutely. One essential item regardless of your style is confidence, every guy benefits from it. Nothing shows a lack of confidence more than underarm sweat, stains, or odor – it’s disgusting. For that I recommend Gillette Clear Gel Antiperspirant. With two swipes of the dial, put it on and it dries in 10 seconds and it gives you up to 48 hours of protection and freshness. It’s a great investment at $4.29.”
Candace Rose: What would you recommend for the guy who is always on the go?
Wendell Brown: “We all live crazy busy lives, right? For the guy on the go we have the Dockers Men’s On The Go Khaki. This is great because it’s comfortable, but it’s also versatile. You can wear it to work, you can wear it out at night, you can wear it on the weekends. It’s got pockets, security pockets, so it’s great for travel. It has moisture wicking so it’ll keep you cool and very comfortable but it also comes in really great fashionable colors including olive moss, hurricane, faded navy (my favorite), and also desert sand.”
Candace Rose: Do you have any additional tips or information you’d like to share?
Wendell Brown: “Absolutely – fit, fit, fit is really important for guys clothing, it really sets you apart.”
