The longline bomber

In fash vocab, the term ‘longline‘ refers to a cut that is, well, longer than your average length – it was made popular by designers like Rick Owens and the almighty Kanye West himself… whose, love him or hate him, influence on contemporary streetwear is undeniable. This trend is fast becoming a staple in modern menswear and I’m here to give you a quick rundown re the longline.

在时尚词典里,“longline”指的是衣服长度比起一般过度夸长的型。时装设计师Rick Owen和饶舌歌手Kanye West是其中两位把这款服饰带到时尚最顶端的达人。因为这项潮流在市场上越来越受欢迎且普遍,我这次就在这张照型帖里想给大家带来更多关于longline的了解。

 

The longline started out as a slouchy twist on the basics, we’re talking simple tees, vests and jumpers. Fast forward a couple of years, from bombers to blazers, you can pretty much find any tops that’s been given this modern makeover today. With H&M introducing its own dedicated range so anyone can recreate their Yeezy looks their way, high street retailers are especially savvy when it comes to the longline game. Similarly, it’s equally as easy to find a good, affordable longline piece on ASOS.

bomber04iLongline最初期只能在简单的衣服上看到,比方说T恤、背心或毛衣,不过现在几乎除了裤子以外,所有上半身单品包括时尚达人们最喜欢的飞行员夹克和较传统的小西服都被longline化而改头换面。想知道这潮流有多得人心?看看H&M早期推出的longline系列,现在任何人都可以穿出自己Yeezy的风格。同样的,在电商ASOS上更是特别容易找到你心仪,价位又合理的longline服饰。

The longline has lasted far longer than I’d expected and to be honest, it took me a while to warm to it. I used to find it unnecessary and lame but lately, I’m becoming more and more fond of it as its longevity has more than earned itself a place in every man’s wardrobe.

老实话一句,longline一开始对我来说并不是非常讨喜。我对它到目前为止的流行性其实感到十分惊讶。不过慢慢的我对这潮流觉得越来越有个性,觉得每个男装达人都应该俱备至少一件longline单品。

bomber06What do you stand on the longline trend? Yay or nay, let me know either way!! 你呢?你对longline有什么看法?我在等你的留言给我知道你个人的意见哦!

    You look incredible (as always).

    I love the longline jackets you can get. Not because I am a stylish fashionista (trust me, I am NOT) but purely because it covers my bum and makes me feel warmer! LOL.

    Love this! If you like Kanye West’s sartorial venture, definitely check out Central Saint Martins graduates – I hear they may or may not have been involved in the creative process… a lot! ; )

      Oooooh, that’s very interesting! Thanks for that information! There are some outstanding talents coming out of the UK at the moment so I wouldn’t be surprised at all if these designed belong to the CSM students.

    I think longline bomber jackets are great because you don’t have to worry about the length of what you wear underneath popping out x

      Natural sunlight always helps with outfit shooting… it’s just a shame that we don’t get enough of it in Manchester!

    It is an absolute ‘Yay’ from me. One of my colleague rocked the longline look at a networking event this gone Thursday – I am keen to give this a go for myself. Pleased to have found your post and learnt a lot more about the ‘long line’ (didn’t know it was called ‘long line’ to start with :-)) Thank you

    I love the jacket as it gives your outfit a completely different feel from a traditional length bomber; this is a much dressier, more contemporary look. Love your post photos too.
