“We designed our fall ‘22 collections to reflect how men’s lifestyles are changing,” explains Peerless president Dan Orwig. “After two years of working from home in sweatpants, men are longing to dress up again. But we’ve added cool layering pieces for both warmth and flair!”
Clearly, Orwig and the Peerless team have outdone themselves for fall/winter 2022, with tailored clothing collections that look like they could cost twice the ticket price. The defining aesthetic that runs through virtually all their brands is SOFT—meaning both the luxury Italian fabrics and exceptional inner materials are lightweight and incredibly comfortable. As Peerless global sourcing president Raffi Ajemian explains it, “Instead of decorating the back of a chair, these suit jackets and sportcoats are designed to be worn all day, dressing the man in ultimate comfort and style.”
With performance fabrics and features a given (virtually all Peerless fabrics and linings include some stretch), here are some Big Ideas from Peerless for fall ‘22:
**Revamped Classics: Forever styles made even better!
**Tailored Sportswear: It sounds like an oxymoron but it makes perfect sense: comfortable fashion-forward jackets with a touch of tailoring elevate the atmosphere at any meeting, real or virtual.
**Sustainability: A buzzword these days but Peerless takes saving the planet quite seriously! Says Peerless president Dan Orwig, “With our brand partners, Peerless has taken some serious steps toward producing sustainable product and reducing waste, both because it’s the right thing to do and also because it’s good business. According to a report commissioned by digital.com of 1250 U.S. consumers in October 2021, men are twice as likely as women (30 percent vs. 14 percent) to check a company’s record on sustainability before purchasing.”
**Party Coats: Into year three of the pandemic, we all need to dress up and celebrate life!
**Tech Trousers: Somewhere between five pockets and dress pants, this new category offers performance, comfort and cool, not to mention perfect fit!
**Tailored Outerwear: Is there a man out there who doesn’t already own several puffer jackets? Time to acclaim the topcoat!
** Boys to Men: Menswear retailers who have added boys tailored garments are notably increasing sales volume (and creating future customers!) Why not test the trend NOW for Father’s Day selling?
