Fashion for men has reached new heights. Men are becoming more conscious of the clothes that they put on their backs and designers like Marc Jacobs, Tom Ford and Michael Kors have made putting an outfit together an easy job for men.
Is the pleated trouser making a comeback?

“Fashion is very important. It is life-enhancing and, like everything that gives pleasure, it is worth doing well.” – Vivienne Westwood
Printed bomber jackets are also in vogue this season.
The Type A-2 leather flight jacket is a military flight jacket closely associated with World War II U.S. Army Air Forces pilots, navigators and bombardiers, who often decorated their jackets with squadron patches and elaborate artwork painted on the back. Sometimes casually referred to as a bomber jacket, its original designation was “Jacket, Pilot’s (summer)”, and its wartime usage was limited neither to pilots nor to bomber crews.
