It wasn’t too long ago that shiny clothes were frowned upon in the men’s wardrobe. With questionable connotations to the overzealous fashion scene of the 70s and early 80s, it was a look usually reserved for rock stars, celebrities and their adjoining groupies.
Not anymore. John Legend became part of the new crop of men who are now embracing sheen as a staple colour in their wardrobes – and there are no rules. From bomber jackets to tuxedos, the shiny finish is now making its way into a range of the most popular menswear pieces.
More specifically, these pieces can effortlessly take a man from a formal cocktail event through to after work drinks with friends.
