With the spring season upon us, the time has come to ditch the layers of heavy clothing and instead lighten up. It’s now time to dive into the colorful world of the season’s fashion, and do so headfirst.
To get the full report on men’s spring style, Mass Appeal hit up a few of the most dapper NYC fashion influencers. These gentleman traverse the worlds of music, streetwear, and the city’s buzzing nightlife. Rome Fortune, Mr. Throwback, Dice the God and Louis Songor all hit us with their spring essentials, trend forecasts, and what they have going down this season. Stunting season is in full effect!
“Spring fashion to me is everybody who’s into personal style collectively being able to play with the moderate temps via fabric. After surviving a New York winter, I like to be able to mix and match staple pieces associated with each season.”
“A camo trenchcoat over a sleeveless hoody paired with custom chino shorts and your favorite trainer is something that I think is dope but also confuses people (which is the point).”
“I think that jumpsuits are going to come back heavy. Overalls have been growing in popularity over the past couple of years. I see a few high fashion houses have tried their take on them but I’m going to stick to the Dickies. If it aint broke…”
“My favorite thing about spring is coming back to NY and seeing everybody out styling, the energy that takes over that city when warm weather approaches is untouchable. It’s just an overall inspiring place to put me in the mindset of things to come.”
“I have an EP with Dundeal, Drives, Thighs, and Lies, releasing April 30th. It has a pretty crazy feature on there and the music as a whole is going to throw people for a loop. I pride myself on my visuals so my video releases should be nuts. Other than that, a bunch of college shows, writing for big artists and just really laying groundwork down for the rest of the year.”
“Spring is all about enjoying the outstanding weather. That means putting away the heavy starter jacket to rock a dope vintage t-shirt, some funky pants and a snapback with a fresh pair of kicks.”
“My look this spring will be the brand new Mr. Throwback x Originals Hoodie/Jogger Pants that released in March. The fashion-forward line incorporates a ’90s style with a tailored fit. People can choose from three colors: aqua, black, and red. The hoodie is based off a vintage brand called In The Paint. They were licensed to make NBA apparel with a Cross Colours look.”
“A trend that we have been seeing is a lot of men rocking vintage hockey jerseys. Brands are making the classic hockey jersey more modern and tailored with fitted arms.”
“I’m looking forward to seeing more people out & exploring the city with nicer weather. My store is in a killer location on 9th between 1st and A, and spring is sure to bring new customers and friends. We threw a block party this past summer so I’m excited for more outdoor, neighborhood activities.”
“The finishing touch for the coolest spring gear is my newly released private label Mr. Throwback Gear. Our t-shirt, snapback & beanie are already huge hits and we have tons more to come. Stay on the lookout for another epic t-shirt, baseball jersey, and basketball jersey with matching shorts!”
