Men’s fashion is finally starting to look a lot better than the same old, same old that has been on the shelves and racks for the past decade or longer. No longer are the rugby shirts, chinos, Dockers, and plain dress and casual clothes’ lines of the past the only choices for men seeking new fashion trends in 2011. From iron-free pants and shirts for the active professionals, to new technologies being incorporated into the clothes in order to make them wrinkle free, stain resistant, water proof and even water repellent and breathable, the top men’s active wear trends for spring 2011 are finally exciting, functional and attractive.
With breathable clothing, men can finally wear nice clothes and exert themselves physically, to the point of perspiration. Dress clothes and casual, as well as clothes meant for the gym or the track are now available with materials that allow the wearer to perspire, and the moisture wicks through to the outside of the clothes and stays on the outside. When it starts to rain, the water repellent clothes offer a respite from having to change into a dry shirt, if you have one (and avoiding the hand dryer in the men’s room with your shirt off).
Body Armour is one clothing manufacturer that has seen their product lines increase regularly, as they focus on the active gentlemen in today’s society. For the active music lover, you can now get shirts, pants, jackets, hats and even sunglasses that even have Blue Tooth and Wi-Fi connectivity, and/or have the wiring and pockets for MP3 and MP4 players, IPODs and other music players. Running shoes have mini-computer chips that will connect to a reader and tell you how fast you are traveling, how many steps per minute you are taking, and how far you have walked, hiked, jogged or run.
Spring 2100 seems to be more about the active man than ever before as far as men’s fashion trends are concerned. There are an ever increasing number of pants in the stores for the upcoming spring collections that have zippered cut-off lengths. Some pants have two to three lengths that can be separately removed, and stored in your knapsack or left in your car when shorts, or shorter pants are required. This can be very useful for men who love to fish, or for the golfer in all of us.
The top men’s active wear for spring 2011 also seem to be moving more towards the earth tones in their colors, forsaking the ever popular greys, blues and blacks that have overwhelmed men’s clothing sections in major department stores for the past few decades. Taupe, olive drab, greens and reds are more popular this upcoming spring, and the depressing camouflaged clothes are finally on their way out.
For the active gentlemen, spring 2011 is finally a time to look forward to going clothes shopping for men.
