This season's style hints and tips from Woodhouse

Each new season in the fashion industry sees thousands of new garments from hundreds of designer brands, and Woodhouse Clothing will have 2,500 plus new lines for you to choose from once all the new Autumn/Winter stock has arrived.

We believe that it is essential to have a wide selection and enough choice to allow you to express your individual style, and with the brands we choose to carry on Woodhouse you have a great place to start in making your choices and you really can’t go too far wrong.

However, with so much exciting new stock to select from it can be hard to pick out what the themes and trends are that make each season distinctive and that are working across the board. So we decided to ask for some hints and tips from someone who really knows his fashion and is completely up to date what is happening right now in the World of men’s designer clothing. David Foster is our buyer and Managing Director, and has personally selected every single item on the site.  With over 20 years buying experience David is well placed to give out a few pointers, and here is what he had to say;
Nudie Jeans Cords and Denim

“The key colours this season are rich and earthy, so plum, burgundy or wine and similar colours that tone in will be strong among many of the collections we are bringing in. As far as materials are concerned cord is definitely right on trend – not the jumbo or chunky cord, more of the fine baby cord – particularly in shirts and jeans.

A lot of customers are also going for what I call ‘investment pieces’ , in other words quality garments that are going to last and which will not be here today and gone tomorrow. So, for example, proper well made welted shoes from Hudson, or top end jackets from CP Company. Garments that you know you will get plenty of wear out of and which will stay looking good through the season and which will really last.

I also think denim is definitely striking back. Chinos are now a staple part of most guys wardrobes and are not going away, but counter to what you might expect given the doom and gloom surrounding the economy more expensive and smart jeans which can be dressed up with a good quality shirt are selling very well”.
