Top 75 Menswear Trends in October

From Illustrated Shirt Guides to Winter-Ready Track Jackets

— October 29, 2016 — Fashion
These October 2016 menswear trends mark the resurging popularity of retro sportswear and range from winter-ready track jackets to branded bandana suits. While athleisure apparel has been dominating the world of high fashion for quite some time, more minimalist and normcore-inspired clothing is being replaced with louder, more eccentric and more playful apparel.

When examining the month's more practical fashion innovations, these October 2016 menswear trends include sweat-reducing dress shirts that pair style with multiple functions as well as illustrated shirt guides that act as an informative tool for those who lack general style knowledge while seeking to look put together.

Additional standouts in the menswear realm include pop culture-themed apparel like HTDG And Leo Ku's streetwear range that pays tribute to quirky animated series Adventure Time along with the new HUMAN MADE's pizza-themed sweatshirt line.
