Ilya, 25 who works at Garms, a vintage and streetwear store in Nottingham shares his insight on 2024 trends

While designer brands showcase their Menswear 2024 Autumn/Winter collections on the Paris runways, how can you rock the looks from Nottingham’s very own fashion hub.

Repeating themes have been present in the fashion capital, collections from Louis Vuitton, Givenchy and Lamaire focus heavily on tailoring, suits and emphasis on collars.

Ilya, 25 from Nottingham works at Garms, a vintage and streetwear store in Nottingham city centre.

Ilya said: “Current fashion trends largely depend on your age, men 25 and above are leaning more towards trench coats, collars and wide leg trousers, it’s becoming a bigger trend, with people branching out from baggy streetwear.”

2023 was the year of the baggier the better, but the new year has brought on a more sophisticated fitted style.

In the city centre chains such as Zara, River Island and Urban Outfitters have adapted to these changes.

But to mimic the runway styles Nottingham’s range of charity and vintage stores are a great shout to source high quality and unique pieces.

British Heart Foundation have a large selection of suit trousers and blazers in many styles, shapes and sizes.

Turn other peoples trash into treasure this season, taking couture to casual.

Other styles appearing on the runway contrast from the formal wear, with a more distressed futuristic style.

Acne studios collection combined cyber biker, psychedelic punk and 90s raver.

So if you’re not ready to throw away the baggy clothes and biker jackets this trend might be more up your street.

Ilya said: “For winter, heavy duty jackets paired with tracksuit bottoms are popular, creating a casual silhouette seems to be popular for the cold weather.”

Leather jackets galore, whether you’re looking for a casual vibe or something to dress up your outfit

Stores such as Garms, Relic and Hooked and Cow stock a range of designer brands for low prices, proving it’s possible to dress well on a budget.

“It’s all about the brands, anything branded, Carhart, North Face, Arcteryx, the list is endless.”
