If you want to make that color more noticeable you can make a small cuff at the ankles of the pants, exposing the underside of the fabric and the bright seams.
The last bold trend this fall in casual wear is the turned-back, embellished shirt cuff. Whether the detailing is fine embroidery -- like a bright Turkish-inspired pattern -- or a satiny texture contrast, the key to being fashionable is in the detail.
If you're looking for an all-new you or just want to update your wardrobe to keep the cobwebs away, color is the way to go this fall. Pick something bright, embrace it and wear it boldly, but don't ever forget your basics.
Tony Paranzino, aka Tony the Tailor, warns, "The prep look is dead. Men's clothing, especially sportswear, is moving back toward a more elegant and sophisticated look." He cautions that color trends will move to smokier, more subtle hues as the weather turns cooler. So don't ditch your classic pieces yet!
Here's a bonus tip from Paranzino: "Footwear is the new necktie."
Check out the shoes on all of the men. Brands like Allen Edmonds and Johnston & Murphy provide classic lines with edgy, hip detail not forgoing quality or comfort.
Most importantly, men are paying more attention to what they wear, and they're demanding quality and style. Merchants like Tony's and Kelley's are listening to -- and fulfilling -- their customers' desires.
