A/W13 Menswear Trends: The XWHY Edit

We’re hurtling out of Summer and straight into rainy, blustery hat and coat weather. In light of this meteorological development, we’ve put together our A/W13 menswear edit – our favourite AW13 menswear trends, which designers inspired them and how you can get the look without taking out a mortgage.


As seen on the catwalks at Tommy Hilfiger (below), the Paul Smith mainline collection, oh and XWHY’s recent background AW13 makeover, houndstooth is replacing the tweeds and the prints of last year as this season’s staple pattern.
