Hottest trend right now in men's fashion

One of the hottest trend right now in men's fashion is Souvenir Jackets and I'm sure that trend will last for few years so one should definitely get one if you don't have such a jacket in your wardrobe.

You may ask what is a souvenir jacket?  Well, souvenir jacket, also known as Sukajan jacket/ Yokosuka embroidered jackets/ 橫須賀ジャンパー, was popularized by American soldiers.  After World War II, American GIs who stationed in Japan wanted to commemorate their stay in Japan before heading home.  So what do they do?  They commission silk satin jackets with motifs they associate with Asian culture: tigers, dragons, and eagles, etc.

There are many places you can get vintage Sukajan jackets such as Ebay, Craigslist, etc.  Brands like Gucci, Valentino, Saint Laurent Paris also have their own versions...   Here are some of my favs from this past and coming season:

This one from Gucci is reversible so when souvenir jackets are no longer in, you can just wear the jacket inside out!  Price of one for two.  My kind of jacket!  SS16


This one is from Valentino from FW16.  A different take than most souvenir jacket motifs!


And if red is your color of choice, Louis Vuitton has one just for you! Gorgeous crane embroidery in the back.  SS16

  1. I love Parkas and it's easy to see why - not only are these eye candies but it does the job so well. I go for affordability, looks and functionality. For this, the Penfield Apex is my top choice and the Petagonia Isthmus. The insulations of these two are excellent although the Petagonia can be quite bulky. Yet, I find that ok since it makes it more snug. For more excellent reviews of numerous parkas, see: http://backpackingmastery.com/top-picks/best-mens-parka.html

  5. The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesn’t disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought you’d have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you weren’t too busy looking for attention.

  8. The terms "fashionable" and "unfashionable" were employed to describe whether someone or something fits in with the current or even not so current, popular mode of expression. However, the term "fashion" is frequently used in a positive sense, as a synonym for glamor, beauty and style.https://www.luxtime.su/chloe-bags
