1. The 'All american' trend.
 ..tipped cardigans, and banlon polo shirts.

2. The anorak trend.
"If you spot an anorak, buy one of colour - it's a summer hoodie bro." -Tony Gum

3. The cargo trend.
"The cargo pant went from being dead to being a new classic. It's not going anywhere. The key is to always get one slim and tailored. Roll the pant legs, ditch socks, and pull on some bucks. Dress it up with a blazer or wear it down with a fatigue and tee." -Jim Moore

4. The plaid suit trend.
"Plaid is not the kind of pattern you want anything else competing with. When you're assembling a plaid suit look, anchor it with a white shirt." -Jim Moore

5. The cotton suit trend.
"Embrace the wrinkles." -Tony Gum

6. The double-breasted suit trend.
"Try one with a tee that has a stretched out neck." -Jim Moore

7. The gray suit trend.
"This will always be around - it's a classic, so it's essential." -Tony Gum

8. The striped knit tie trend.
"Yes, you can pull this off with just about any shirt and jacket - love it!" -Tony Gum

9. Fly-front raincoat trend.
"...instantly tops off a look and makes it more chic and modern." -Jim Moore

10. Sailor stripes.
"This will look great with a pair of chinos and the 'wingtip' trend." -Tony Gum

11. The striped sweater trend.
"Everyone looks good in a chest stripe because it gives the illusion of a broad chest and helps define your torso." -Jim Moore.

12. The suede wingtip trend.

13. The shiny suit trend.
"It's the kind of suit that can carry on from the office to the bar." - Jim Moore

14. The white pants trend.
"Think of white pants as just the next step after white jeans. Here's how to pull them off: stay away from pastels; make sure the fit is slim, not floppy; and basically think of like a pair of chinos. A dark shirt will always look good and don't be afraid to try them with a pair of sandals or espadrilles, like we saw all over the runway." -Jim Moore

15. The Hawaiian print trend.
"Ease into it by putting one under a dark jacket or with shorts and shoes that aren't too loud. You want it to be the highlight of your look." -Jim Moore.

16. The coloured chino trend.
"A lot of people think you need to be going on vacation to pull off a colored chino. Not true. You can wear them on the streets, too. Just keep everything else toned back so that the orange, blue, green, or whatever color you go for is the only accent." -Jim Moore

17. The bright sole trend.
"This is a statement shoe, so keep the rest of the outfit calm." -Tony Gum
