Tech 2020: Get in the know

The tech industry is moving at such a rate, sometimes it feels hard to keep track.

Every week it seems like there is a new tablet, smartphone or wearable tech launch. And while that’s great for boosting your productivity, it’s not just Silicon Valley that’s getting in on the action.

Fashion labels are also producing fabrics and fits that incorporate technology to look, fit and feel better than ever before.

Golden age of technology

If you’re the kind of person who updates their smartphone with each new release, you’ll know that there’s never been a better time to be a techie.

There are smartphones with screens that bend, there are fitness trackers that can tell you not just how many steps you’ve taken, but track your heart rate or let you know whether you’re getting a good night’s rest.

High-tech clothing

A suit is a suit, right? Well, not exactly.

It turns out that even with this most enduring wardrobe staple, there is still plenty of room for innovation.

Van Heusen’s Flex collection of shirts and suits incorporates technology that ensures they move with your body. The stretch material means they will fit you perfectly and the fabric is breathable so you won’t overheat in the warmer months.

They are also crush resistant, which means that they’re ideal for when you’re on the move – whether jumping in a cab or on a plane.

If the occasion still calls for a tie, go with something vibrant – and contrast, instead of matching it, with your pocket square.

Can't beat the basics

Yes, innovation is great. But sometimes it’s hard to beat the classics.

A crisp, white shirt is an essential part of every man’s wardrobe and with the New Year almost here, it’s a good time to take stock of your wardrobe and check you have everything you need to look your best in 2020.

Finding just the right white shirt for the task at hand – whether it’s a slim-fit for the office or a relaxed style for the weekend – will ensure your wardrobe is not only up to date, but also versatile enough to see you through any task.
