Top 100 Menswear Trends in 2017

From Pop Art Streetwear Collections to Sock-Like Sneaker Designs

— January 27, 2018 — Fashion
These 2017 menswear trends range from sock-like sneaker accessories to streetwear releases that draw inspiration from both pop culture and the art world.

From Vetements' ironic 'Staff' t-shirt re-release to Supreme's collaboration with Vanson Leathers, the recreation of uniform or utilitarian apparel is being embraced by a number of major players within the fashion industry. While Vetements' best-selling statement tee mimics the standard uniform of concert security and staff, Supreme's unique collaboration is a remixed take on classic racing jackets, and features patchwork detailing that signifies its limited edition run.

Other 2017 menswear trends to note include custom-designed formal apparel with an athleisure sensibility -- Reebok recently announced a partnership with tailors in order to ensure its 'Flexweave' material can be incorporated into suiting for added comfort. Additionally, Uniqlo's t-shirt vending machines make clothes more conveniently available to those on the go while promoting the retailer's accessible business model.

Trend Hunter's 2018 trend report dives deeper into the newest menswear innovations to look out for in the year ahead.
