Mr Tweed’s Autumn/Winter Menswear Trends 2022-2023
As 2022 begins to draw to a close, the gentlemen among us still have much to look forward to in terms of Autumn/Winter trends.
September ushers in a changing of the seasons — where we swap much-loved linens for worsted woold tweeds and other rugged, cold-weather fabrics. To assist in the planning of your new seasonal wardrobe selection, we have created our list of Autumn/Winter trends for ‘22 and into ‘23.
Let’s wrap up, sirs, and hunker down for the colder season in style.
5 of the top Autumn/Winter menswear trends
1. Double-breasted coats and jackets are in
Expertly structured suits never go out of style. And that can certainly be said for A/W ‘22-’23, when the very best-dressed gentlemen will be wearing double-breasted.
Dior, Prada, Versace and Dolce & Gabbana all featured double-breasted and wrap-around jackets during their respective fashion week catwalks and now it’s your turn too. At Tweedmaker, our striking cashmere overcoat, The Constable, is the perfect double-breasted investment for the season ahead. Buy one this season and never worry about stepping out with confidence again — in snow, wind, sleet or rain.
Better still, a double-breasted cut will serve to broaden the shoulders and take attention away from the stomach. Perfect for larger gentlemen or those looking to take up a more masculine frame.
2. Warm up with bold, red hues
For gentlemen who relish the spotlight, Autumn/Winter ‘22-’23 brings the opportunity to dress head to toe in rich, indulgent reds.
But you needn’t take it that far — not all looks transition from the catwalk to the country club so easily. Instead, opt for a red cashmere jumper, Classic Tweed three-piece, or a red accent like a red, wool tie.
A gentleman knows how to play with his style, without taking it over the top. Start with red accents and increase your boldness from there.
3. Calling all boots: Chelsea, suede, ankle, and more
Autumn/Winter dressing requires sturdy footwear — something that can withstand snow and rain but will still look suave and sophisticated when paired with a tailored suit.
The good news is that boots of many shapes and styles are in fashion for the upcoming season. Opt for a pair of classic brown Chelsea boots to walk in the footsteps of London’s elite, or dress down without losing your gravitas with a soft suede boot. Both styles fit well with denim jeans and a perfectly-fitting tweed jacket.
4. Dark denim jeans
Speaking of denim, it’s time for light-coloured jeans to find a place at the back of the wardrobe replaced by dark denim, befitting of grey skies and short, darker days.
Much like with a suit, finding the correct fit is crucial when it comes to dark denim jeans. And you should look for straight or even slightly flared legs — yes, even flared, trust Mr Tweed when it comes to shape and style.
Dark denim’s versatility will carry you through September to March. Pair jeans with a crisp, clean, custom shirt and an open jacket for a relaxed air of grace.
5. Scarves and gloves: the perfect finishing touches
Of course, autumn and winter bring with them chilly starts and the need to accessorise wisely. While headwear can be complex for gentlemen (‘beanie’ hats are best left on teens), high-quality gloves and scarves make a sensible, sophisticated A/W investment.
For gloves, you can go the knitted route to add texture to an outfit when needed. Or reach for leather if you’re already wearing the finest textural tweeds and wool.
While scarves made from pashmina, wool or cashmere, will stand up to bitter winds and last several autumn and winter rotations if looked after correctly.
Trust Tweedmaker for all seasons
Tweed and wool fabrics are in their element when the colder months roll around. If you have been maintaining your tweed suit with care through spring and summer, you’ll be A/W ready as soon as your suit is out of storage. Remember, if your suit has developed a slight odour while packed away, simply let it air out at room temperature to give it a fresh lease of life.
If your winter wardrobe requires a refresh, then head over to Tweedmaker’s website post-haste. We have a range of classic tweed and wool suits, as well as shirts and accessories made to order.
