If Imitation is a Form of Flattery, We Gratefully Tip our Hats to Fashion Week

aWe’ve always believed that menswear in America needed a whole new look, and that’s why we’ve been so bold in our styles and colors. Once men discover our men’s shirts, they quickly become so attached them that they don’t want to go back to the mostly boring style of other men’s designers. That’s why we feel so vindicated. You see, at this year’s Fashion Week runways, we couldn’t help but notice that our style has caught on, and is now being copied by men’s fashion houses all over. When the men first began walking the runway, we thought the latest trends in men shirts look more than a little familiar. And they did. From the big name designers to ready to wear lines, they all featured elements that are the hallmarks of our Michael and David men’s fashion shirt line.

What Were the Styles at the Fashion Week Shows?

When the male models hit the runways at various Fashion Week shows, many of them were sporting shirts that featured the bold designs, slim fit and meticulous tailoring that is well known to the customers of our fast growing men’s design house. And while some fashion pundits are calling the look retro and comparing the patterns and styles to the 1970s, the truth is that the men’s shirt fashions for the 2015 Spring and summer season have a distinctly modern edge. In the past, the runway fashions have been an indicator of what men will be wearing this spring, and if this year stays true to the pattern, men all over will be wearing the same styles that our customers have for years.

How Was Michael and David Imitated?

One of the biggest men’s fashion shirt characteristics that was imitated from our line is fit. We had already come to the conclusion that after years of men wearing oversize, sloppy shirts, men needed a change. And now it seems that the men’s design world has finally embraced the cut that Michael and David calls American slim-fit. This cut skims the body without clinging to it. The slimmer cut fits better under jackets and looks better when the shirts are worn tucked in or left hanging out over business casual and dress pants.

Another features swiped directly from our catalog are wide collars, and they are back in style with a vengeance. On the runways, the boldest shirts featured wide spread Cuban collars, and were lined with contrast facing to show off that unbuttoned look. The same contrast facing frequently shows up on button plackets and cuff facings, along with precision top stitching that emphasizes meticulous tailoring. To anyone who has worn our shirts in the past—does any of this seem familiar?

It’s a New Day in Men’s Fashion

The spring palette for men’s fashion shirts is a major departure from the muted earth colors and neutrals that have been favored by men for decades. All men, not just our clients, can now look forward to bold and bright colors that include reds, purples, yellows and blues. Today’s fabrics come in both solids and unexpected and bold prints. The patterns we see, from the runways to our own catalog, range from subtle jacquards to bright contrasting checks, stripes, floral and paisley prints.

Some fashion observers aren’t used to this type of style, and question whether the patterns and contrasts are right for men. But in fact, when a man wears one of our shirts, he tends to look even more masculine. That’s because the wide collars, bold patterns and slim fit emphasize the masculine in a way that can only be defined as machismo. Truly, a man who understands who his is will stand out among the crowd in these style of shirts, and get noticed. Whether worn with jeans, dress or business casual pants, the trendy male this spring will be wearing colors, collars and cuffs inspired by the 1970s and our Los Angeles design house.

We are a rapidly growing design house based in Los Angeles, who until this year’s men’s fashion week, have been a lone voice in the attempt to update men’s fashion. Thankfully, it appears that the other designer houses have finally caught up. Our line of men’s designer shirts can be found in fine men’s clothing stores and exclusive men’s boutiques across North and South America, as well as in select European cities. Michael and David shirts are also available online through Amazon Prime for a limited promotional period.
