FINANCIAL TIMES (AP) For some dads, the day-to-day responsibilities of working in the world outside the home aren’t what they’d rather be focused on.
But for some of the millions of men and women who’ve worked in the industry for decades, the task of getting dressed for the office has never been easier.
The top-selling men’s fashion magazine, “Men’s Style,” recently published a feature on a few of the most-watched men’s clothing trends.
“For most people, dressing well at work isn’t a big deal,” said Craig Peltz, vice president of marketing for Men’s Style.
“But for the men who are at work a lot of the time, that’s a big thing.”
The magazine’s editors selected more than 100 of the top 20 men’s apparel trends and asked the top 10 to show off their style.
The top five trends for men’s dress shirts were: -Pants with suspenders.
-Wear an athletic fit.
-Trousers with a high collar.
-A suit jacket.
For men, the most important thing is not the material of the suit, but how it fits.
If the jacket is too big, or too thin, or not tailored enough, men’s suits are a chore to wear.
For many men, they say, the work environment is more than a dress.
In a survey conducted in April by the Pew Research Center, 70 percent of adults reported working from home for most of their working lives, and that’s expected to grow to 85 percent by 2020.
While they’re working, many of them often wear shirts that fit well, according to research by the National Center for Health Statistics.
If they want to be able to wear pants to the office, they need to get them tailored.
“You can wear the best suit you can, but the pants don’t have to fit the suit,” said Scott Eisner, founder and chief executive of Eisner Dresswear, an apparel company in Chicago.
“The pants are not the only thing you can wear, but they’re the main thing.”
To be more stylish, most men are also looking for a suit that looks great on them.
Many wear suits that have “dressier” details like a tie, pocket, or pockets.
The trend for women’s dress pants, which also are popular among women, includes “laundry,” or wearing pants and a blouse in a different color, which many consider more feminine.
Pants can also have decorative pockets.
Women’s blouses and skirts are also popular, especially for a man.
They can be fitted in different colors or with different styles, and can be worn in different ways.
But, most importantly, they’re designed to look great on a woman.
“The thing that is going to be most noticeable when you see that, is that you’ll be able tell she’s wearing it,” said Peltzer, of Eisner.
Eisner’s company offers men’s casual pants in many different colors, including blue, white, pink, and tan.
The company also offers suits and skirts that feature buttons.
Eisner said he believes a shirt should look flattering for the wearer and be comfortable to wear, with no room for the pockets.
“We don’t want it to be too much,” he said.
“It shouldn’t be too big.
But if you have a button, you have to have pockets.”
Eisner Dress Shop, which has locations in the Chicago area and Nashville, Tennessee, sells men’s suit and dress pants.
For men, he recommends looking for blouses that are tailored, which allows for a better fit.
Men’s pants are often worn with shirts and ties.
For women, he suggests wearing a skirt and a dress shirt that is tailored to the wearer.
Peltz said he has noticed a difference in the men’s attire when he’s at work.
The men who have been at work the longest, the ones who have worn suits the most, have seen the biggest change.
I see men wearing suits, tie, shirts and tie shirts, which is more comfortable than wearing jeans, he said, but also has a lot more details.
“A tie is just another part of what a guy wears,” he added.
“You can go with jeans and shirts, but you can go to the other side and wear a tie.
That’s really cool.”
