Tiger of Sweden A/W 2016 – Introducing my Favorite Styles For Men
“We need the tonic of wildness…At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be indefinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable. We can never have enough of nature.“ Henry David Thoreau, Walden: Or, Life in the Woods
Every now and then we all need to go back to our roots, to the mother of all inspirations, nature. We can find piece in it’s quietness, find our calm in it’s solitude, find strength in it’s endless beauty.
Throughout its more history of more than a century, the Swedish brand Tiger of Sweden has always been deeply entrenched with its Scandinavian origins. With the latest Tiger of Sweden A/W 2016 campaign, the brand once again soaks up the inspiration by Scandinavian nature and the stark winters up north. The men’s range of the Tiger of Sweden A/W 2016 collection is dominated by a unique mix of narrow cuts and wider, oversized shapes leading current trends in fashion. Typically for the brand’s style the Tiger of Sweden A/W 2016 collection is dominated by black and grey but also comprehends a profound selection of muted, autumnal colors like dark olive green, camel and earth tones as well as deep reds, particularly in combination with some artistic floral prints.
So together with my friends from Constant Evolution, I went into the woods, to explore the inspiring power of nature, the tonic of wildness. Outfitwise I picked one of my key looks from the Tiger of Sweden A/W 2016 men’s collection, which is built around a real must-have for the winter season, the drop-shoulder overcoat. Due to it’s length, the broad lapels and the drop-shoulder fit it provides an extravagant, high-fashion, oversized look which is destined to turn heads on the street. Premium fabrics paired with finest workmanship make this coat a unique statement of style, that is designed to age with it’s owner. The dark olive green comes with a natural sense of elegance and is one of the season’s most distinct trend colors. Due to its neutrality it will work with most parts of your wardrobe and also be a safe choice in upcoming winter seasons. Last but not least, what makes this coat so special is its versatility and numerous ways to style it. Whether you go for a dapper look with a suit underneath, a casual-chic outfit with cropped chinos & sweater or a more relaxed streetlook, this coat will elevate your style significantly.
For the cooler time of the year I like to style it with dark woolen trousers and a soft knitted sweater. Match this outfit with a pair of chunky army boots to complete the look. To refine your style I recommend rolling up the legs of your trousers a bit or choosing a cropped length. That way the trousers will harmonize better with the boots and highlight the sharp silhouette.

1. Oversized, Drop-Shoulder Overcoats are going to be a key style this Autumn & Winter
2. Muted colors are a great way to add depth to your monochromatic outfits
3. Army boots look great with winter outfits. However, keep in mind to adapt your pants. My advice is to wear cropped pants or roll up the legs 2-3 times.
