The top fashion for men trends in 2012 showed how excessive styles could work for both sexes. Instead of opting for simplicity, designers decided to go all out when it came to menswear designs.

To celebrate the popularity of Game of Thrones, the Grey Knight Armored Hoodie gave men a chance to feel as though they were a part of this medieval series. Certain editorials such as the Buffalo Soldier Fashionisto exclusive pushed the boundaries of menwear, featuring models wearing military hats and jackets. Although this particular look was excessive, consumers can always tone down the style by just wearing a soldier-like jacket.

Our Fashion for Men Trend Report offers a deeper look into the menswear industry, and highlights various patterns in fashion that have surfaced recently.
