8 Menswear Trends to Know About This Spring

Here at Harry HQ, our talented team of buyers are always busy scouring the globe ahead of each new season for styles that spark inspiration. Here are our top eight trends you should know about now.


The Safari Jacket

Modelled after the real-life jackets explorers wore while on safari in the African bush, today’s Safari Jackets require far less life-threatening circumstances to wear. Whether sourced from designers across Europe (like Brunello Cucinelli, Ralph Lauren Purple Label, Foret) or our very own in-house label, HAROLD, the safari jacket is intended to be worn on a much more regular basis.

With multiple pockets, and a half-or full-belted back, the Safari Jacket design is practical, smart and might just become the most worn in your wardrobe this year. Wear with anything from your go-to hoodie and jeans to a form-fitting button-up shirt and trousers.


The Court Sneaker

Inspired by the athletic sneakers worn by tennis and basketball players of years past, the court sneaker is a style more frequently seen on city streets today. Typically all-white and made from leather, canvas, nylon or any mix of the above, these sneakers offer a simple, relaxed and adaptable low-profile look for casual situations.

It’s almost more difficult imagining outfits that wouldn’t benefit from a box-fresh (or at least box-fresh-looking) court sneaker, but what you want to wear yours with entirely depends on your sense of style. These will look equally at- home worn with a pair of above-knee nylon shorts as they would with a pair of generously cut wool flannel pants. Discover the latest from Santoni, Autry, Prada and more.


The Lightweight Cardigan

The lightweight, warm- weather cardigan is making a strong case for itself this spring/summer.

Not just for the colder months, cardigans can prove useful as a super-stylish layering piece when it’s warm out, too. Just look for lighter- weight styles made of high- quality, breathable fabrics.

Elevate a simple Tee by buttoning up a cardi over top. Whether you style with jeans (perhaps white jeans?), a sharp pair of cotton chinos or some tailored trousers, your newest knitwear addition will go with practically everything. Discover this season’s range of lightweight cardigans from designers like Officine Générale, Thom Browne, Maurizio Baldassari and more.


The Basic Baseball Cap

There’s nothing revolutionary about a classic baseball cap, but this new understated rendition has quickly become one of our most-worn items. Logoless, effortless and made with premium materials and care, elegant baseball caps from the likes of Varsity, Mackage and Psycho Bunny are a less ‘busy’ more ‘business’ approach to the everyday staple. So much so that they’re recurring costume go-to’s for TV’s most popular ‘business’ show, Succession. But you don’t need to dress for the office to sport one of these. A simple suede jacket and jeans combination offers an upscale upgrade to a classic off-duty outfit. Or, pair your cap with a mock neck sweater and pleated wool trousers for more of a smart casual look.


The Colourful Suit

If you’ve already got the basics – like navy, grey and charcoal – then you’ll always have full license from us to veer a little further away from the norm on your next suit or two.

There’s no better time to experiment with unique styles and push the envelop further than ever before with your tailoring. From classic springtime pastels to bolder, more vibrant tones perfect for summer’s biggest cocktail parties and events, we’re welcoming a huge variety of new fabric colours to our arsenal this season. With the weather warming up, showcase your affable personality with an exciting new suit from HAROLD, Tom Ford and Ralph Lauren Purple Label.


The Hip-Length Coat

Calling hip-length coats a ‘trend’ might sound like a stretch, but it wasn’t so long ago when bomber jackets and overcoats dominated the world of outerwear. Now, classic styles like trench coats, car coats, peacoats, and topcoats (the list goes on) are making a recent resurgence. These adaptable ‘between-length’ coats are great for when the seasons are changing, but also perfect for those always on the go. Long enough to keep you warm, short enough to stay out of the way (especially when driving or riding, hence the name car coat), look for our latest hip-length additions from Canali and Tiger of Sweden this spring.


The White Jean

White pants, or jeans in this case, have been and will continue to be worn by Europe’s most stylish men, though the trend hasn’t as wholeheartedly caught on this side of the Atlantic just yet. We’re hoping that changes this season.

Think of white denim as a brighter alternative to your trusted washed or raw denim. Just like those wardrobe warriors, it’s built just as sturdy and rugged. But white denim actually complements more of your existing favourites. Be it a navy blazer or simple heathered grey tee, you’ll sooner run out of outfit ideas than occasions to wear your new white denim jeans from the likes of GABBA, PURPLE BRAND, and BRUNELLO CUCINELLI.


The White-Soled Loafer

The ‘Plimsoll’ shoe – and its emblematic white rubber sole – was one of the original styles of athletic footwear, designed specifically for sporting use way back in the '20s. Since their invention, we’ve all come to appreciate having Plimsoll-esque soles underfoot when wearing our favourite sneakers, but more recently we’ve seen how useful they can be on more traditional types of shoes, namely the loafer.

This season, loafers have somehow become even more accessible with many high-end designers like Good Man Brand, BOSS and Emporio Armani. including white rubber soles in their latest shoe designs. See what all the fuss is about – try some on with a pair of jeans or casual pants when you’re next in-store.
