Five Urban/Streetwear-Inspired Outfits To Match The Watch

Casio GA-2100SKE-7AER

Whereas our fathers and grandfathers would’ve had very set outfits for very set purposes (office suits, exercise kit, downtime comfies, smart-casual attire), today men are more likely to have items that work for multiple events. This is partially down to improvements in fabrics and partially down to the relaxation of dress codes in our everyday lives, with the work suit becoming almost extinct overnight when offices abruptly shut. As dress codes relaxed, technical sportswear has become an ever-more important part our wardrobe lexicon as it offers versatility and comfort.

In fact, it’s so prolific in menswear at the moment that even the least sporty among us will find details created for athletic purposes on our garments: smart trousers with a stretch waist and a drawstring, trainers that can be worn on a night out, t-shirts cut from sweat-wicking material. So, whether you’re looking at cool streetwear brands or labels more used to the catwalk than the pavement, it’s these sporty details that are setting the agenda in menswear right now. Here are a few of our favourites from the current season.
