Some fashions never go out of style, such as ideally tailored suits, distinctive apparel accessories or elegant formalwear, reminds Charles Bass, Fior Bespoke owner and master clothier. "Our goal with luxury bespoke clothing is to create perfect fits, every time," he adds.
Customer satisfaction is the hallmark of Fior Bespoke, and Charles predicts this year's autumn clothing trends and colors will deliver a pleasant fashion punch that most people are seeking. "What's resonating with many is safari jackets, which are both casual and functional while looking great with slacks or jeans. Popular colors so far for those jackets include khaki, navy and olive green," he explains.
Charles says many people are feeling ready to get out and explore, and fun-themed clothing is a strong part of that desire.
However, he reveals fewer gentlemen are wearing ties this year. "Instead, they're sporting brightly colored pocket squares. This fall, we're producing wool and cashmere pocket squares."
He adds many men are moving away from skinny jeans and opting for relaxed, comfortable denim jeans in a variety of colors.
"What's really taken off lately is custom jogger sets. Leisurewear allows for a little more sophisticated look for work as well as meeting someone for coffee. We're producing these sets in merino and silk/cashmere, too. They're comfortable and they anchor a chic lifestyle look," Charles says.
With black tie season fast approaching, Charles says people are requesting clothing that really fits them, ones that complement their unique body and style. In this category, he says personalized velvet dinner jackets in a myriad of colors, rather than tuxedos, are favored. But for overall and sometimes quick needs, he reminds us that the Fior Bespoke team also delivers top-quality, speedy tailoring services.
"People crave interaction and are back to wanting to look good. I think there's been so much pent-up social demand, that everyone wants to look 'smart' and to push boundaries, and we enjoy how that allows us to be creative and to help our clients establish their own signature styles," surmises Charles.
