4 men’s fashion trends for Winter 2013

Men's fashion is notoriously slow moving compared to women's fashion -- after all, a suit and tie is hard to beat when it comes to looking your best. But there are always ways you can individualize your look. This winter there are several trends that we love.

Some have been around for some time and some are exclusive to this season, but they will all have you looking great and can be incorporated into your unique style. Check out these 4 winter style trends for few ideas that you can make your own.

Military Style

Military style fashion isn't exactly new, but we're seeing a lot of it this year. The trench coat is probably the first example of military clothing crossing over into civilian fashion, and the options for military inspired jackets have grown to include a ton of variations on this style.

The benefit of a lot of these jackets is the cut. Military jackets tend to have a tapered look that gives you a powerful, V-shaped look. Get a jacket with some metal buttons for an authentic look.

Another trend we're seeing is in combat boots. Having a versatile and reliable pair of boots for winter is hugely important, and combat boots are perfectly functional for that purpose. Brands like G-Star and Dr. Martens have combat boots that will add an edge to your winter wear.


Red is a pretty obvious color around the holidays, but it tends to stand out and if you're wearing other darker colors, it could draw attention away from the rest of your ensemble. Burgundy is the perfect compromise between wearing a festive color without going overboard.

As mentioned, burgundy also goes great with other darker colors and neutrals. A grey topcoat with navy pants and a burgundy scarf is a great look for winter around town.

Cuffed Pants & Jeans

Selvedge jeans are becoming increasingly popular in the men's fashion world for a couple reasons. One is that they tend to have superior construction, but the other is that they look awesome when you roll them up.

Sometimes the best style is in the details, and showing off the selvedge stitching on your jeans has become somewhat of a badge of the fashion conscious.

Don't stop there, though. If you're wearing boots, your slacks will probably appear to be too long. A simple solution is to cuff them to add some style and keep you from look unkempt.


Plaid styles seem to come and go constantly and this winter is looking like an "on" year. From standard plaid button-ups to plaid outerwear, you can add cool patterns to your look that bring out a little bit of an English vibe.

One of our favorite ways to wear plaid as of late is contrasting it in your shirt and tie combo: plaid shirt with a solid tie, or vice versa. Even finding a wool suit with a subtle plaid pattern is a cool way to stand out without looking like you're trying too hard.

Note: Probus NYC is a men's fashion boutique in Washington Heights, New York City. They specialize in high end men's fashion from brands including G-Star, Nike, Publish Brand and many more. Boots pictured are G-Star Patton IV Cavalry.
