Macro-Trends for S/S 2014
Micro-Trends For S/S 2014
Social media is making men much more aware of fashion and trends as they happen. When Pantone named Emerald green the color of 2013, many men were aware of this and immediately looked to update their wardrobes - spending a lot of green on a lot of green.
Unlined Sport Coats
Our new fashion vocabulary word for S/S14 is “Sartisanal”; Sartorial accents in cufflinks, pocket squares, lapel pins, socks, shoe laces, belts, and watch bands are becoming more popular, especially when there is a hand-crafted or artisanal component to the item. Men are starting to really appreciate the element of being made by hand.
Sun Faded Flourescents
Light/Spring Weight Down
The integration of athletic influences and sport elements into men’s wardrobe also continues; jersey material, elastic waists and cuffs are just some of the details being incorporated into classic silhouettes and classifications. The “Dress Sweat” has become a holy grail item that all men are looking to find!
BRAND BUZZ Age of Wisdom
Age of Wisdom launches a new division of contemporary, young menswear called Black and Blue. This is a truly unique line to be merchandised with premium denim and specializes in special washes and dyes over shirts with uniquely designed snap buttons.

A legendary brand finds new life in the hands of menswear executive Peter Schwadel. In rebranding this iconic label new all-stretch materials will be introduced patterned in Bengaline and Sharkskin in a palette ranging from traditional navy’s and grays to soft mulberry. In addition, a new Slim Cut line will be added to the traditional Classic and Golf cuts. “The most comfortable pant in the world” is coming to a whole new generation.

BOOTH 983 Jonathan Sibony President/Designer www.aunoir.com
Describe the Au Noir man. There are many different characteristics that make up an Au Noir man. He is confident, daring, masculine, charming and playful to name a few. You either have it or want to dress the part; hence one of our favorite slogans, “Dare to be bold.”
Where does your inspiration come from when developing and naming each of your specialty shirts? Not to give away too many secrets, I will say this… The inspiration comes from many places. One of our shirt’s fabric and print came from a picture of the interior of an old Alfa Romeo, one print was inspired from a ceiling tile, and sometimes inspiration even comes from cartoons. The names are based on the feeling when a shirt is completed. A lot of our more western plaids have names like “Winston” and “Ranger.” However, most are named after Greek Gods, names of powerful or mysterious characters in classic novels, and close family members who are loved and admired.
What are a few elements that make an Au Noir shirt an Au Noir shirt? Our signature embroidery below the cuff as well as above the top button hole inside the face of our shirts. We use a variety of contrast stitch
BOOTH 1377 Pedro S. Pinto International Sales & Brand Development Manager www.dielmar.pt Describe the Dielmar man.
The Dielmar man is dynamic, a successful executive and is passionate about life. He is looking for details of tailoring with a spirit of modernity and innovation that are always in fashion.
Who first introduced the line of clothing in 1965?
The tailor and noted master of bespoke tailoring, José Marques Rafael, father of the founder and grandfather of the current managers of the company, was the great booster who helped create the company with his children. His son and founder, Helder Rafael, inherited the taste and tradition for this art. He introduced and maintains to this day the perfectionism and the high quality in the manufacturing of all the garments.
How does the brand continue to maintain the same spirit of the tailor’s craft that was originally initiated in the 1960s?
Starting off with a team of about 60 people consisting of tailors and dress makers, the company inherited and continued the tradition of tailoring
and button colors as well as leather cuff clasps to add to the intricacies of the final product. Our fold up cuff, inner collar and button placket garnishes are always tasteful yet fun. Made with attention to fit that is second to none, our shirts are fitted but not skin tight; they drape properly over the shoulders and under the arms allowing for flow and freedom of movement. It goes without saying - fabric, fabric, fabric.
How would you define your city’s fashion?
Edgy, fresh, dynamic, and current; all the while being melted well with the mainstream. I live in Montreal, Canada where some icons in different elements of the fashion industry were socialized such as Dov from American Apparel, the Bitton Family of Buffalo and the Aldo Group. And of course, home to Au Noir as well.
In your opinion, what is one trend in menswear that will always remain in style?
I will start off by saying a well-dressed man. Even though the suiting industry is talking about dynamic shifts in completes (tie, no tie, etc.), a man will always wear pants (either jeans or dressy) with a shirt (conservative or bridge). The whole t-shirt look has always been in and will continue to be, but its market share shifts a lot; whereas a dress or button shirt always has and should maintain its presence.
from master tailor, José Marques Rafael - quickly becoming the leader in the Portuguese market of men’s clothing. Dielmar continues to innovate and introduce new industrial production solutions. The company maintains the quality of construction in suits and garments and preserves manufacturing as well as the many operations of the ancient tailors to align modernity with quality.
Tell us about the team that creates your collections.
They are a young and dynamic team that is always looking for new raw materials, attentive to changes in the market, have a high expertise and training in the pattern construction, and allow the alliance between a modern design and current fit.
How do you ensure your high standards of quality are met each season?
All fabrics used by Dielmar in manufacturing are of superior quality and mostly natural. The fabrics come in innovative and very sophisticated compositions with the natural fibers blending in a new found rhythm; linen intertwines with cotton and silk and hemp mixes with wool. The different versions of pure linen jerseys construct an innovation that is reminiscent to the handcrafted techniques of basket weaving and play against more traditionally sartorial surfaces and patterns.
What is one golden rule of menswear dressing? BOOTH 1471 Brent Kestin President/Product Manager
The golden rule in my book is that a garment must fit the wearer’s physical type, character and personality. Too many men are swayed by the trends of the times which preclude them from buying apparel that complements their body type.
In your opinion, what is the distinction between style and fashion? A man that has style is always in fashion.
Describe the Flynt man. The Flynt man is a gentleman who is between 25-55 years old and enjoys dressing up without being buttoned-up. He’s sophisticated and versatile. He wants to look the part and knows how to dress a jacket up with a tie or dress it down with a t-shirt and jeans. The Flynt man has his own style and his wardrobe reflects his personality at both work and play.
What do you consider to be the world’s best fashion city for men? Paris, France. I have always admired the sophistication level of the average European man’s wardrobe.
Which “must-have” item from your Spring/Summer 2014 collection will instantly update a man’s wardrobe? The must-have Spring item from Flynt is the cotton stretch peak lapel soft coat. The coat is both versatile and comfortable and the Flynt man can create a variety of looks with this jacket. The coat can easily be paired with denim in any color or with a shirt, tie and trousers.
How does the brand go about selecting the materials used in its designs? Every season, I look forward to meeting with the Italian fabric mills where I buy virtually all of my fabric.
BOOTH 1123 Sebastien Scemla Mr. Everything www.sebastienjames.com
Paris. Working in women’s clothing for the first 15 years of my career was a kind of boot camp for my transition into men’s clothing. Having this background opened my eyes to the subtle things that women demand in their wardrobe. These details are just some of the things I learned and brought into my men’s collection.
How do you personally stay up-to-date with fashion? Describe the Sebastien James man.
A Sebastian James man effortlessly radiates confidence. His magnetism is no accident. It’s the result of an appreciation to detail that may at first appear minor but is ultimately elevated to the sublime - every seam, every button, every pattern precisely where it should be. Never before has thoughtful consideration been so sexy. True to his word and true to himself, a Sebastian James man believes that life without creativity, character and conviction is not life at all.
Where are the ateliers that you collaborate with located?
Our ateliers are all based in Barcelona and really define the word “atelier” as our factory has been around since the 1930s manufacturing men’s garments. Most of our 22 seamstresses have all been with the factory for at least 10 years and our master seamstress has been sewing garments in this same factory for over 30 years. Small boutique factories like ours are almost a thing of the past as China and Turkey have seemed to have gobbled up the garment industry. Our artisan seamstresses allow us to craft garments with a production that is second to none.
I live, breath and eat fashion so I don’t really have to stay up-to-date with it. It’s on every corner everywhere I turn. I actually stay away from trends. My collection is classic modern yet subtle and focuses on luxurious fabrics and great fits.
If you were not a designer or principal of this brand, what would you be doing?
I really would not be doing anything else because I love what I do. However, in my free time I’m usually found surfing or kitesurfing in some of the most obscure beaches in the world from Nicaragua to Fiji to the Mentawai Islands, France or Portugal. My life revolves around nature and the ocean. The only place I get inspired is when I am one-on-one with nature.
What is your personal background in the fashion industry?
Growing up immersed in France’s garment industry really gave me an insider’s education from an early age as I absorbed invaluable knowledge from my mother and grandfather - both steeped in the fashion business. I went to work for the family business which was a women’s brand from
