From pink PVC raincoats at Burberry Prorsum to gladiator-clad muscle men at Versace, the spring/summer 2013 collections seemed to set real-life chaps numerous fashion challenges, rather than trends, for next year. If your jaw drops when your beau shows any remote inclination towards style (taking more than 60 seconds to select a shirt is a good sign he's fashion conscious), then we're not convinced he'll be wearing neon tex mex tops, the Moschino 'washing powder' print or a divine salmon suit by Alexander McQueen in 2013. That said, the Louis Vuitton collection championed a striking Gatsby-esque vibe and Giorgio Armani remained on top form with gentlemen's classics that we deem to be approachable for the more conservative gent. Whatever his preference, we recommend you research the men's collections for the profound sense of aesthetic pleasure one gains from ogling male models in expensive ready-to-wear.
