9 Things That the Brazilian Skips in Men’s Fashion

There are several factors that influence the use of a certain trend or piece in men’s fashion such as cultural issues, climate, or even prejudice, any inconsistency can exclude from the wardrobe of the brazilian man even the most stylish outfit or accessory. In this post we’ll list some of the elements that are virtually ignored by most of the men of our country, the reasons for this attitude.

9 Things That the Brazilian Skips in Men’s Fashion

1 – Collar rulê (or turtlenecks)

Blouses turtlenecks are very common outside of our country and make a good and sophisticated combinations with items of winter as heavy coats, leather jackets or blazers of wool, but neither of these combos were enough to convince the brazilian, not only here the brands of men’s fashion were encouraged to include pieces with this type of collar in their collections in recent years.

Why not handle?

The climate does not contribute and the brands prefer to invest in pieces that can be used in most parts of the country, however, seems to be the rancidity of the 70s, when it was a big hit around here, the biggest factor preventing the adoption of turtlenecks.

2 – Any thing in the head that is not cap

Why is it so rare to see a man in a hat in Brazil? The accessory is great for protecting the head, either in the cold or in the heat, after all, we have versions that fit to all kind of weather, even so the cap follows as the choice is almost unanimous in our lands. The strange thing is to see photos of São Paulo in the years 30, 40 and 50, and noted that it was rare who did not use the hat!

Why not handle?

Somewhere between the years 60 and 70 the brazilian decided that it would not use the hat and continues so until the present day. We have to agree that the accessory is not for everyone, you have to know to use and have style for both, I haven’t even found a template that looked great on me, but I think that lack of good will in most of the times, we have a few cases of guys who use hats on the day-to-day and impress, the more men could follow your example.

Honorable mention to the caps that are taken from the closet on the coldest days, but they managed to turn the trend in recent years.

3 – Gloves (leather or wool)

May be the cold that is, the subject comes out in the street with 5 sweaters, hat, boots, and whatever else is needed to protect from the cold, but it seems unlikely (not impossible, of course) to find someone using gloves in our lands, or of those baratinhas that last only one winter!

Why not handle?

A lot of people bothered by having to keep drawing the accessory every time you need to pick something up in the portfolio, for example, and with the devices touchscreem the trend is getting worse, even with some models that release the tip of the forefinger and thumb precisely to use with smartphones. Others consider freshness and prefer to spend the day with frozen hands, but the truth is that if you live in a city with harsh winter they break a galhão!

4 – Clutch, the handbag

One more element that brings back memories of the 70’s, when it was called “henchman” here. Although not as common as the purses, and backpacks male, even in Europe, the clutch may be the solution for those who need to load some belongings, but they do not justify the use of something larger and more clumsy.

Why not handle?

Many men have prejudice, because they think that the clutch is very feminine, the other punch everything in the backpack the same, whether much or little and are little by calling if there was a better solution. As the factor price also, there are those who would prefer to invest in a bag larger and use it all the time instead of having two choices and spend more.

Curiosity: when you call the models of clutch that are a little bigger (the size of a notebook) “folders to the notebook” no one sees any problems using them.

5 – Tote bag

Already it was noticeable that the man is skittish the accessories in Brazil, isn’t it? And even those that are being accepted gradually, there are still restrictions in item model. This is the case of the tote bag, the purse in the format of “bag”, that is, one that is not used in tow or hanging in the back, in addition to having a format that is elongated in the vertical, out of the most common pattern found in postman, or in the folder of the type executive.

Why not handle?

“This is the bag of a woman” you will hear many say. Honestly? I think the tote bag as nice as any bag out there, nor the fact carry it by the top handle bothers me, since currently most of them come with a strap higher that allows you to put it traversed, and the model comes well in handy if you don’t want to knead the clothes or is with pain in shoulders and can’t support weight in that area.

Note: the tote bag is not picked up yet, but I have the hope that we will see many of these in the future, beautiful models and hipsters abound, such as the above picture shows.

6 – Chess that is not on a shirt

Take a look at the sites of streetstyle around the world and see how the men betting on all kind of clothes with chess, from traditional shirts to jackets, trousers, blazers, jackets and even shoes. In Brazil, however, the pattern picked up only in the shirts, appearing timidly in other items.

Why not handle?

Well, it was a sacrifice to convince the brazilian that the plaid shirt was not dress code of festivities, so we have to wait a few more years to develop the idea that it is possible to be stylish with the pattern present in any type of clothing, since you know how to use it.

Bonus: have you tried to use the blazers with plaid window pane? And the Prince of Wales?

7 – Trousers with a short bar (bent or not)

Out of here are almost a standard, which seems to me a little bit of an exaggeration even, but in our land the men seem to be reticent to the use of pants that do not have the length, customary, many times it is a mistake in the hand, and using it for too long, hurting the silhouette. It is curious how, in a hot country, the staff still falter at the time of leaving the wind hit in the shins or as a culture that gives priority to the casualty, such as ours, show a little bit of the sock is a sin to many!

Why not handle?

Hard to explain, but maybe the brazilian is conservative with certain things – simply for being, or pure prejudice – even so I see some people who have joined the trend, but only the more in sync, the rest still prefer the safe harbor.

Bonus: here’s 3 ways to use the bar of the pants.

8 – Sockless: shoes without socks or with half not apparent

This case is very similar to the previous one, because with the exception of shoes that are traditionally worn without socks, as the docksides, it seems very strange to a brazilian to wear a shoe without socks. It is not something that makes a lot of difference really, and sometimes I think that the staff pushes the limits with this business of the short bar and the shoe without socks, seeming forced, but with so many people complaining about the brazilian heat, it seems to me logical to use this resource to alleviate the high temperatures.

Why not handle?

It seems that the show the shins is out of the manual fashion male tupiniquim, remembering that these are the same men who live by placing bermuda for any occasion, or is, the cops can only appear if they are accompanied by the knees!

9 – White Pants

This is a piece complicated: beautiful in the photos and combined with the right pieces, she has some problems to use on a day-to-day in large cities, however I still think that we should see more of her out there, but this is quite rare.

Why not handle?

Let’s the list: chubby and those who have thick legs are not very committed to use the piece as the piece adds volume to the bottom; the white pants dirty too that there is makes it very practical in a city where pollution and dust are constant; those who prefer clothes discrete automatically deletes that item from the closet; to work well it has to have the design trim and nice, but compromises the body and the look.

Bonus: we’ve already done a post showing how to wear white jeans in the winter, see here. If your goal is to assemble outfits with her for any occasion, see this post.
