Summer Hot List- Men’s Edition!!

In honor of Father’s day, and all the amazing men in our lives, this month’s hotlist is dedicated to the guys!  Menswear is a huge department on Swap.com, and it only keeps growing thanks to our amazing sellers and those awesome items you send us to find new homes.  When sending in men’s apparel, follow these few tips from our style experts on what’s trending in sales and style, plus some just plain ole’ sweet items to send our way.   

Nostalgic Sportswear

Jump on the throwback train, because it’s moving quick. We really can’t get enough of old school styles from brands like Adidas (more please!), Champion, NIKE, Fila, Tommy Hilfiger, and Reebok. Other things to look out for are tracksuits, mesh details, and all jogger styles and colors.  Style Tip: you can pair your logo sweatshirt with a casual short, or a wader length pair of light denim jeans. Finish the look with a sleek sneaker for some added coolness.  

Prints, Colors, & Patterns- are so IN..

Details matter when it comes to menswear. Not all your shirts have to be checkered or plaid.  Our customers are scooping up all our camo and floral prints, as well as our many embellished pieces, but don’t forget to send in those super bright colored items.  Short sleeve shirts are so cool and trendy.  Make sure you send in yours to get those dollar bills!  Colors of the summer  can be blended. Think creams, yellow, pinks, greens and strong blue hues.

Printed and Statement Messages

Make a statement with graphic tees that command attention. This category continues to be the most popular every season, and it doesn’t just have to be a t-shirt.  You can send in immediate sales form sweatshirts, wovens, and even printed denim with your favorite family friendly messages.  

Styles to Pack- Preppy Looks & Neon Beach

Summertime is all about lightweight polo shirts, cargo shorts, chinos, and boat shoes.  Keep sending in those versatile pieces.  In staying with the preppy look, try to find some great fitting swimwear to pack in your box.  Swimwear has a short shelf life, so it’s important to get it in now before it’s too late. Men’s printed swim trunks and slimmer fit styles from J. Crew, Pacsun, H&M, Ralph Lauren, and Mossimo are heating up this summer.   

Indigo Life

Light wash denim styles, distressed pieces, and high end brands like 7 for All Mankind, Vince, Theory, and Michael Kors are topping the denim sales territory.  Slim fitting men’s jeans are all the rage, but we accept all fits, styles and colors- we love to have a little bit of everything.

Finishing Touches

What about accessories and shoes?  Don’t forget that we accept baseball caps and bucket hats, ties, and those fantastic pocket squares.  Our shoe game needs some revamp so we are on the hunt for sneakers, slides, sandals, and loafers; these prove to be this summer’s leading trends in men’s accessories.  Send in all the shoes!
