There is a subtle push towards tailoring, but generally styles remain grounded with the addition of sports detailing and the casual, relaxed attitude of streetcar.
Jersey and Knitwear
Handknit sweaters feature subtle alterations to proportions and new points of focus. The polo shirt is a key player with alternative versions for men and youth sectors.
