Men’s Fashion Trends 2022

As a brand that has kept our finger firmly on the pulse of men’s fashion trends for the majority of our 140+ year history, we’ve seen a lot of styles come and go. From drainpipe jeans to polo shirts with blazers, we’ve seen it all.

From classic pieces such as preppy cardigans and argyle knitwear to maximalist prints and bold colours, 2022 is set to be another big year in men’s fashion.

So, without further ado, here are the trends you need to know about this year …


We’ve been championing the cardigan for years. It’s a big part of our history on and off the golf course.

The preppy look is set to be popular in 2022 and the cardigan is set to take centre stage. Easy to layer, the cardigan is most commonly worn in the winter months, but it also works as a cosy go-to for summer evenings in place of an overshirt.

Get started on creating your preppy look today. Our mohair cardigan collaboration with Manchester’s Oi Polloi is the perfect starting point. Made in Italy, the pieces are available in a mix of single colours and argyle-patterned silhouettes – so you can tailor this trend to your tastes.


Next up for men’s fashion in 2022 is a piece that can easily be worn as either an outer layer or a midlayer – the gilet. The versatile and functional gilet comes in several different styles, like our Casuals Double Zip Packable Gilet and the Wadded Down Gilet. Wadded pieces have long been popular thanks to their warmth and practicality.

Bright colours and patterns

After seeing a sea of neutral and natural tones in men’s fashion last year, brighter, bolder colours have returned to the scene for 2022.

Adventurous colours like vibrant blues and greens, as well as striking yellows and oranges, will be popular this year, so don’t be afraid to add a statement piece to your wardrobe.

Bold patterns are also set to be a popular fashion trend in 2022. Think maximalist designs with clashing colours.

The Lyle & Scott Glitch Print T-shirt is the perfect example of a maximalist piece, featuring vertical and horizontal stripes – this is a tee that’s sure to turn heads.

If you’re looking to combine bright colours with preppy clothing, explore our collaboration with Stuarts of London. This nostalgic collaboration features argyle-patterned pieces in vivid pink, sky blue, and yellow colourways.

Dressing more sustainably

With increased efforts on protecting the environment, people are re-evaluating what they wear and where it comes from. So, dressing more sustainably is set to become another big trend for 2022.

We’re proud to declare that most of our Black Eagle collection is made right here in Britain. We also use sustainable materials where possible, including Ventile fabrics – a natural cotton that is made in England and designed to last for generations. 1

Capsule wardrobes, with smaller collections of essential pieces that can be mixed and matched easily, are on the rise amongst the fashion and sustainability-conscious alike. Discover How to Build a Capsule Wardrobe below.

We are committed to making high-quality pieces that last for years, not just for seasons. Explore some of our premium organic cotton T-shirts and sweatshirts below.
