TFP Original Editorial: L.A. Rebirth.

Johnny Depp had it right in the ’90s. His tousled locks, his penchant for statement blazers and his predilection for oversize toppers and suave suiting are all noteworthy.



Depp’s easy going L.A. style acts as our muse to reflect the growing menswear trends coming out of L.A. right now.

Today, Los Angeles is attracting creative talent in the design industry and high-end menswear has moved away from formality to a “creative casual” wardrobe more vital than a suit and tie.

Even men who still wear a suit to work every day can benefit in their off-duty hours from creative labels like Greg Lauren and Hosio, or unisex brands like AnnaKiki and Angelos Frentzos.

Smart Textiles & Tech Fabrics

Smart textiles and tech fabrics are the future. They add value to the wearer and often times the environment. But more importantly, they just look really cool.

Tip: Go all out with equally tech-friendly footwear made from high performing textiles.

Color Coded

Over the last few seasons color staples in menswear have shifted to rich and luminous hues calling attention to modified silhouettes, technical surfaces and softer construction of jackets and trousers.

Tip: When you go bright, keep all else basic.

DIY Political Tee

Though fashion may not be the first industry that comes to mind when one thinks of addressing political and socioeconomic issues, designers, editors, models, and bloggers are sharing their positions loud and clear.

Tip: Accessorize with statement rings

Burn-Out Treatments

Burn-out washes in menswear is an experimental trend on the rise by designers to lend more interest to classic menswear design.

Recommend: Pair as well with treated denim.
