Why older men need more fashionable clothing

Nearly two months have passed since London Fashion Week Men. Menswear designers such as Craig Green, Christopher Raeburn, and Astrid Anderson presented their catwalk collection embracing the current buzz-themes: sustainability, diversity, and inclusivity. Older male models were absent despite the impressive array of unique aesthetics and characters, such as nomads, cowboys, city rebels, and taxi drivers.

Style has evolved to be both universal and individualistic. Cities are melting pots for type as globalization leads to the mixing of cultures. Fashion blogs on the internet have been able to capture the uniqueness and similarities of urban trends around the world. Easy Fashion, for example, captures the essence of Parisian chic.
