As Jean-Claude Mpassy of @newkissontheblog puts it: “…looking back is def an option”, and he is right. 2018 has been the year for nostalgia and with a disruptive era of fashion upon us, the rules to style have been broken. In particular, the menswear landscape is seeing men approach tailoring with experimentation of colour and shape, and if you’re game to rework your sartorial kit, take note of this Vienna local for his ’70s take.
Often, casual tailoring can be associated with messy or poor-fitting suits and this guy proves that is not the case. The key to a great ’70s look is all about fit and colour.
Look for suits that are structured, well made and most importantly fit perfectly. It might mean opting for a bespoke suit (that will last forever) or taking a trip to the tailor to alter a cheaper brand. To channel the ’70s, try a wide, structured fit, looser pants, and to really go all-out, look to shirts with bold patterns and bright colours.
