Trend Forecast - Victorian

"Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society."
~ Mark Twain 1835 – 1910

Words that are as true today as when the Victorian humorist first uttered them. Then how ironic it would be that we may all soon be wearing clothes much like those adorned by Twain himself. Victorian styling is suspected to be a massive trend in menswear next season, the influences being seen in tailoring in the form of three piece suits, cutaway jackets and certain outerwear styles as well as in relaxed casuals in the form of work wear harking back to the industrial revolution. Accessories will be include bowler hats, baker boy caps, pocket watches and even men’s furs to name but a few. Being quite the aficionado of the Victorian aesthetic I for one can’t wait.
