The trend toward smaller bags and little pouches impacts menswear for next spring. Runways (and NYC streets) feature men wearing fanny packs holster-style, as well as appealing neck-wallets that are a sleek take on the frumpy travelers’ favorite. Look out for contoured shapes that encircle the waist, menswear fabrics, fluo touches, ombré finishes and contrast zips. Many of the smallest bags attach with a clip for extra versatility.

The showers that bring spring flowers rarely keep city dwellers inside. For next Spring/Summer expect men to take to the streets in fashion-forward raincoats and parkas in sheer nylons or new soft vinyls. These featherweight slickers come in solids or prints, and can be sophisticated enough to layer over a tailored suit or playful enough to adapt for young men or even kidswear. Lengths range from fingertip to almost-ankle; hoods and drawstring hems are key.

Floral prints abound on S19 menswear runways. There are packed blossoms, flat flower-power daisies, lush roses and little ditsies, all used for woven shirts, jackets, smooth knits or screened onto tees. A single bloom can be painted onto a suit jacket or heat-transfered onto a trench coat. For the true flower-lover, there are even posey-printed pants and jeans.
