ABHORRENCE in all caps fails to do justice for the hatred I harbour towards mainstream men’s fashion, especially when it comes to red carpet events or other media engagements. It’s plain boring, there’s no experimentation and stylists seem to have given up. So obviously, when I spot a relatively fresher micro-trend on the radar, I will rejoice.
At the ongoing men’s fashion week ’24, a plethora of celebrities have been spotted wearing tailored shorts, either under trench coats, leather jackets or coordinating shirts. While it’s no design marvel, a little change from the mundane can be quite revivifying for us diligent fashion watchers. Let’s glance through some of our favourites:
Euphoria alumni Jacob Elordi’s fit was a top-to-toe Valentino delight including the tie, over-the-knee shorts, and the leather boots of course. Minus the socks. The socks were Nike and the internet was seemingly divided over the same. As for us, we were too busy gawking so…what socks?
American DJ and music producer Diplo was lensed in Fendi for the Italian brand’s menswear show in Italy. The ensemble was a cobalt blue, oversized leather number with knee length shorts and a structured crossbody messenger bag.
Thai actor and singer-songwriter Jeff Satur was also in attendance for the Valentino men’s show alongside big names throughout the continents. His armour of choice – a straight cut pair of black shorts, nestled underneath a longline white trench trench coat and a black tie. The Valentino show-goers had a predetermined uniform, we reckon.

Ex-YouTube star and now acclaimed singer and actor (he stars in The Idol) – Troye Sivan opted for a sleeveless brown number and white anti-fit shorts for Prada’s menswear showcase. Sealing the deal with a glossy black belt and a minimal silver chain, the low-key look garnered praise aplenty.
Set to essay the role of Prince Henry of Wales for the on-screen adaptation of queer book Red, White & Royal Blue, Nicholas Galitzine’s all white media outing for Fendi is one for the books. Suave and sharp, the Brit lad has always been airtight on the sartorial grounds. We’re fans!
