Style Shots—Menswear Pattern Mixing
Photography & Words by: Swabreen Bakr
A well dressed man is a thing to behold, here we have Wale, one of Esquire’s ‘Best Dressed Real Men’; a lawyer by day in our own fair city of Philadelphia and owner of an amazing menswear fashion blog where you can see him wearing goods from his upcoming clothing line.
One of my favorite things about menswear is that the closer you look the more interesting details you find. Here we find a lot of subtle things, like the color of one of his bracelets matching the buttons on his jacket, the yellow in his pocket square compliments the yellow thread on the jacket itself. The color scheme and texture of his shoes and suitcase also work very well together. This type of subtle detailing and accessorizing is definitely something to consider when putting together an outfit. Between the pocket square, jacket and shirt you have an fantastic mix of patterns. Pattern mixing is big for Fall in women’s wear, here’s a good example of how a man does it.
