Jumpsuits Are a Top Men’s Trend, Just Don’t Call it a Manzie
Jumpers, rompers, overalls, onesies… call them what you want, but the fashion world won’t stop obsessing about them. To say that the traditional work wear has become a sartorial staple in men’s fashion would be something of an exaggeration. However, if the Men’s runway shows are any indication, then you are going to see a lot more of them come fall.
As recently as this summer, the jumpsuit otherwise known as the romper entered cutting edge designer status and has now has become a part of the lexicon. Sure it’s a small subset of the men, but it manged to dominate the conversation all summer. However, this fall it’s a shared inspiration across both sides of the Atlantic and prominent enough to be dubbed a trend. The one piece jumpsuit was seen amongst the top men’s shows in New York, Milan and Paris with potential to be carried into next year.
Several designers referenced mechanic-like overalls, showcasing them in wool, chambray, corduroy and and even acid washed denim among other fabrications. To test drive a pair, best to keep it simple and monochromatic. Or wear with a cool pair of trainers to maximize the overall effect of a monochromatic ensemble and keep all other clothing in the same dark tones. Here are a few of our faves below.
