We caught up with Deb Foreman, GM of menswear buying at David Jones, for a chat about what she likes in the mens space this summer…
What is your key trend for men this summer?
Key trends for men this summer include cuban prep, a look based on classic preppy styles but with a cuban twist using vintage-inspired pique, block colour resort shorts and printed resort shirts. The Nautical theme is also a key look with soft linens, horizontal stripes and classic boat shoes that make for an effortlessly chic look. Men should also look out for new trends in suiting. Summer suiting this season is more deconstructedwith longer blazers and pleated pants.
What are your top 3 purchases?
We’re loving Hackett London’s classic British clothing and accessories which make for perfect nautical inspired pieces, suiting from MJ Bale and Brent Wilson will ensure you stay ahead of the fashion pack this season and Ksubi denim is a wardrobe must-have.
Favourite men’s scent?
Tom Ford – Vetiver
What type of guy did you buy for this summer?
The best part about the trends this season is that they encompass a range of looks that will suit all men of various ages. There is truly something for everyone.
