AW14 Trend: Classic Cool

Classic Cool

The first of our menswear winter trends we’re taking a closer look at this fortnight is Classic Cool. Drawing inspiration from our forthcoming Style Ambassador, Roger Shamoun from Zimma Tailors in Sydney, this trend is all about giving traditional sartorial style a contemporary update with chunky frames and bold designs.

Derek Cardigan glasses

The Clearly team headed over to Zimma Tailors last week to catch up with the dapper gent and shoot some snaps of him to be our next men’s Style Ambassador. Keep your eyes out for Roger’s Style Ambassador feature on theLOOK next week.

With chunky frames from a range of brands such as Derek Cardigan and 3.1 Phillip Lim, here are some of our top picks from our sophisticated trend with a geek-chic twist…


Frame Style: 3.1 Phillip Lim Corgin in Black

3.1 Phillip Lim glasses

If you’re after a pair of glasses that matches quirky coolness with sophisticated style, look no further than these bold frames by 3.1 Phillip Lim. Perfect for both work and weekend, team these glasses with anything from a lightweight knit, jeans and sneakers to a tailored suit, crisp shirt and loafers.

 Frame Style: Derek Cardigan 7014 in Black

Derek Cardigan glasses

For an even bolder take on the Classic Cool trend, opt for this pair of chunky frames in black by our exclusive brand Derek Cardigan. We suggest pairing them with a button-up chambray shirt, slim-fit indigo jeans and a knitted cardigan in a block colour to brighten up your winter look.

 Frame Style: Trevor Linden 101 in Black

Trevor Linden glasses

Take a more refined approach to the trend with this rectangualr style of glasses by Trevor Linden. Suitable for the less confident among us, wear these sleek and stylish frames with a slate grey suit and polished black brogues for your next important meeting in the boardroom.
