Shades of brown, ’90s vibes and tartan twills dominated the men’s fall and winter 2018 runways during February’s fashion week. Now, Columbia menswear shops have lined their shelves with the season’s latest fashions from custom suits to cool graphic tees.
For The Greens Co, a creative boutique that just celebrated its first year in town, paying attention to details that bring pieces to life has been the focus for what’s trending on their racks. “Everything is moving into really technical cut-and-sew pieces,” says store owner and lead designer Marquise White.
Flannels are an essential look for any fall season. Don’t want to use the hand-me-down from your dad or older brother? Don’t worry; elbow-patched plaids and checked wools abound at local shops. Pair the button-down with a basic tee for an effortless way to add a layer of warmth.
Casual wear, such as neutral-colored coats and loafers, marched down New York runways. Bingham’s Traditional Clothing offers similar styles, but from clothing markets that other mid-Missouri stores won’t carry. Fits are more trim this season, owner David Danuser says. The shop stocks heavy tweeds, flannel suits and corduroy pants if you’re looking for that professional or business casual cut.
Instead of spending time combing through large chain stores this autumn, curate your own looks for the cool months ahead based on these local finds.
