The Menswear Issue: Autumn 18 buying guide

Introducing our autumn 18 menswear buying guide: from market reports and analysis to inspiring fashion content – everything you need to know for the new season and beyond.

The menswear market is booming. From the catwalk to the high street, affordable mainstream labels to luxury streetwear names, innovative independent stores to global digital leaders, there has never been a more exciting time in men’s fashion – for brands, buyers and, most importantly, for customers.

To help you navigate the market, the first of our 2018 seasonal special editions is focusing on menswear. For the autumn 18 season, our regular twice-yearly reports have been relaunched and expanded to reflect changes in the fashion industry, evolving business trends and new buying patterns.

Across the magazine and on drapersonline.com, we bring you industry insight and market reports at the start of the new buying season: from inspiration and analysis, to trend reports and insider opinion.

Our exclusive editorial photoshoots feature Drapers’ handpicked highlights from the new wholesale collections. Our buying guides are creatively produced to inform and inspire with a fresh perspective on autumn 18’s offerings.

We also took to the road to bring you reports direct from the aisles of key menswear trade show Pitti Uomo in Florence and the front row of London Fashion Week Men’s.

We talk to the founder of online contemporary menswear retailer The Idle Man, Oliver Tezcan, about today’s male shopper and standing out in a crowded market.

We also catch up with Paris Fashion Week designer Alexandre Mattiussi, founder of menswear brand Ami. Demand from male shoppers for new product has prompted Mattiussi to launch a pre-collection this season, expanding from two to four ranges a year.

There is plenty to inform and inspire you both in print and online, whether you work in menswear or not. Look out for The Womenswear Issue (print edition 9 February) and The Footwear and Accessories Issue (23 February).
