Fashion trends change at a drop of a hat. To keep up, you need to check the scenes constantly. To make it easy for you, we’ve compiled 15 of the best men’s fashion for 2022. Here they are in no particular order:
If casual professional is the look you’re going for, Twillory is the place for you. And if you care about the environment, this men’s fashion brand is an intelligent choice as it claims to make 100% formaldehyde-free, non-iron, SafeCotton dress shirts. Now, that’s fashion and responsibility in one brand.
From their chinos to their button-downs, anything Twillory-made is exceptional in quality and fit. It’s hard to describe why Twillory is one of our favorite brands without trying them on yourself. Pictures don’t do them justice. The best way to describe Twillory is that everything looks and fits a tiny bit better than whatever you have in your closest. The materials look and feel premium. If quality and fit had a child together, it’d be named Twillory.
Chinos in 15 colors? That’s a ton of choices for those gunning to have the athleisure wear that’s also excellent for office work. They call this their signature tech pants that promise comfort, style, and reasonable price. They are water-resistant, moisture-wicking, machine washable, and stretchable.
Taylrd chinos are easily some of the most comfortable and versatile pants you can buy. There’s a wide variety of colors and fit to choose from to ensure the perfect pants exist for every man. We like Taylrd because they’re slightly more affordable than other brands on the list but still maintain the same high quality.
Jeans that are comfy, stretchy, and affordable are pretty hard to find. Look no more as The Perfect Jean brings these to you. The jeans are made with spandex, rayon, specialized washing, and high-quality sewing techniques that make each pair feel like you’re wearing nothing.
One of the most annoying things about jeans is how uncomfortable they are at home. The Perfect Jean solves this problem by using materials that are durable, stretchable, and somehow soft. Gone are the days of changing “out” of your jeans when you get home. With The Perfect Jean, these might even replace your pajamas.
For the weekend warriors and overall adventurous guys, Bearbottom is the best choice for men’s fashion in 2022. They have tees, pants, shorts, and even swimwear that are comfortable and feature-packed. The brand’s inspiration and most significant advocacy are in helping the people of Bangladesh. In addition, every item sold donates a school meal to a school child in India.
Don’t let their philanthropic efforts distract you from how well-made their clothes are. We highly recommend Bearbottom to anyone who’s looking for the best value and performance clothing. Their stretch joggers look and feel great whether you’re actually jogging or just dressing casually for work. Our favorite piece is their Ace Pants. They’re comfortable joggers cleverly disguised as business pants.
Working professionals who look for simplicity and durability in their work clothes will find Perk delightful. They call themselves an elevated basics brand that’s primed for comfort: no itchiness, no wrinkles, and no piling. Plus, they offer many “perks” such as a 100-day trial, free shipping and returns, and Apple Pay payments.
Perk is our recommended brand for men who wants to show their best assets. Comfort and looks don’t need to be sacrificed with Perk. We love their rear-flattering Feel Good Chinos and their low-key long sleeves. It’s the perfect brand for men who always want to look and feel their best.
Not only does Quince offer the latest in men’s fashion in 2022, but they also have something that the women will love. Their company mission is something to love: to craft fashion that can rival the most luxurious brands without the high price tags. They take pride in their sustainability, workmanship, and quality.
Quince is perfect for professional men or women who want to look rich but don’t want to pay for it. The brand offers high-quality basics that enable you to layer up or mix and match for the perfect style. Think of Quince as Theory but without the brand-tax.
7. Western Rise
Offering a lifetime guarantee for all your items means Western Rise is completely serious when they say they are high performance. They have clothes that are perfect for mountain hikes yet wearable for office meetings. They seem to meet their promise of sustainable, versatile, and fashionable clothes.
Western Rise is perfect for men who buy clothing once every decade. Are you an adventurous soul looking for chinos and essentials that can last as long as their journey? Look no further. Our favorite piece is the Evolution Pants, a pair of chinos that can go anywhere and everywhere. There’s a good chance these chinos will look exactly the same when you hand them down to your younger siblings.
From blazers and jeans to dress shirts and slacks, Mizzen+Main manufactures clothes that have comfort and flexibility in mind. They take pride in their high-performing fabric dress shirts that will offer the most suitable fit for you. Also, you won’t have to worry about wrinkles, moisture, and machine washability, among many others.
Mizzen+Main is the perfect collection for busy professionals who always have to look their best. As a bonus, most of Mizzen+Main’s clothing has 4-way stretch, moisture-wicking fabrics, and is wrinkle-resistant. Our favorite pieces are the Leeward dress shirts and Baron Chinos. It’s the perfect combination for office, Zoom calls, and date nights. We recommend Mizzen+Main because they understand that feeling good is just as important as looking good.
Specializing in skiwear, Moncler also offers a wide array of men’s fashion items. This luxury brand from Italy also has shirts, accessories, and shoes, among many other products. Their signature padded jacket is considered the crème de la crème of ski clothing.
Coming from France is this clothing brand that has taken GQ by storm with its arch-Gallic-style in mens’ fashion. It initially gained popularity thanks to its denim jeans but has now conquered more. It offers both men’s and women’s clothing and accessories that have a focus on minimalism.
Having been in the fashion industry since 1910, you can consider Zegna an authority in men’s fashion. Their menswear is exquisite, sustainable, and luxurious, not to mention ahead of its time. So for 2022, if you want to be on top of the fashion game, Zegna’s suits, shirts, jeans, and accessories are a must.
If branding is of little importance to you in fashion, VTMNTS is for you. But rest assured that you won’t look blah if you go for their collections. These are some of the most fashionable we’ve seen, considering it’s created for those who don’t care what others think.
With their specialty as leather accessories, luggage, shoes, and more, Moschino is a fashion trendsetter. If you want to look trendy in 2022, this is the brand to follow. Their apparel is luxurious, fresh, with a bit of humor and playfulness in them.
A Parisian fashion brand, Y/Project is all about attitude and emotions. Their designs focus on designs that are complex, layered, constructed, and shades of historical references. Y/Project is a collaboration of eclectic designs, maximalism, and luxurious creativity.
Having the eighties as its inspiration, Eytys became a hit to an unexpected market, the millennials, and Gen-Zers. They started with school shoes and evolved to where they are now, a ready-to-wear collection based on denim. Their online shop has seen an increase in sales, proof that they are making their mark in men’s and women’s fashion.

Top 20 New Year Gifts for Stressed-Out Folks
The new year is a blank slate, a time to kickstart all those new plans swimming around in your head. Still, after the holiday season and working hard year-round, many people are spent. If you’re looking to get a gift for the go-getter in your life who’s a bit burnt out, this is the gift guide for you. Help them accomplish their new year goals while getting some R&R at the same time.
1. Stress Wearable
Wearable technology is making amazing strides. Not only can you track your vitals during a workout – now you can track how well you slept or how calm your nervous system is. There are countless ones on the market like Apollo, WHOOP, and Rise Science Sleep Tracker. If you know someone who wants to get a hold of their sleep cycles and daily stress levels, a wearable can provide support.
There’s something about quality sheets that just makes everything ok again. After a long day of work and stress, flopping down on luxurious sheets is certainly better than flopping down on old, uncomfortable ones. These sheets are light and breezy and made to last.
3. Meditation App Subscription
Meditation is a good habit with tons of research-backed benefits. But it’s also a practice – the more you do, the better it gets. An app subscription is a great way to support someone while gently encouraging them to stick to good habits.
4. Good Tea
Anybody can buy themselves tea from the grocery store. That’s why when you’re giving a gift, you gotta go for top-shelf tea. It’s perfect for someone who’s trying to rely less on coffee or someone who just loves good tea in the winter.
Like meditation, journaling is often touted as a must-do daily self-development practice. But it’s easy to forget or get bored writing the same old stuff. Journals can be fit to match the individual. There are dream journals, goal-setting journals, gratitude journals, bullet journals, etc. The Best Journal Ever has a bit of everything, which makes it a great gift.
6. White Noise Machine
Most people are particular about how they like to fall asleep – eg. total darkness vs nightlight, watching tv vs silence. If you know someone who sleeps much better with subtle background noise, they’ll love you for this gift. White noise isn’t especially disturbing, so even if they’re bunking with silence lovers, they might not mind.
7. Decision-Making Wheel
An often-forgotten element of being stressed is decision fatigue. Even if we’re not working very hard physically, our brains may feel like they’re on fire after a day of decisions. Research estimates that the average person makes over 30,000 choices per day – likely much more than we had to make in the old days. This decision-maker tool can serve as a joke gift or even a real tool for the recipient to rely on. Boards are customizable so users can quickly decide what they’re having for dinner, what activity to do next, etc.
8. Quality Blanket
Weighted blankets, heated blankets, jumbo blankets, furry blankets – There’s no limit to the ways you can destress with a blanket. This blanket is touted by Puffy as the “softest blanket ever.” We’ll let you be the judge. Your recipient gets a 101-day trial (and a lifetime warranty should anything go fatally wrong with your Puffy blanket).
9. Sensory Deprivation Kit
Stress relief products are often focused around the senses – aromatherapy candles, warm blankets, back massagers. But this is quite the opposite. By depriving our senses of any input, we can actually enter a state of profound rest. If there isn’t a float tank in your area, this float kit is the next best thing.
10. Blue Light Glasses
Nowadays, life is lived via screens. Between office work, online education, social media, and dating apps, more and more elements of our lives are being digitized. Whether you think this is good or bad, your eyes are probably not so excited about it. Blocking blue light is one way to make screen time less irritating on the eyes. These ones by Goodr are affordable and get the job done.
11. Spa in a Box Set
A lot of people resist the idea of a spa day, but that’s a surefire indicator that they probably need one. For the spa-hesistant friend or family member, a spa-in-a-box will do the trick. This will allow them to get comfortable pampering themselves without a stranger putting cucumbers on their eyes.
12. Lavender Eye Mask
What’s better than blindfolding yourself and drifting off to sleep? Doing it with the relaxing scent of lavender, of course. These lavender sleep masks put you in the zone for relaxation.
13. Yin Yoga Pillow
It’s important to remember that yoga doesn’t always have to be an intense workout. For the yoga-lover in your life, encourage them to practice restorative positions with a yin yoga bolster. It allows you to deepen various stretches while getting some cushioned support.
14. Chill the F Out Supplement
This Apothekary supplement is making waves around the internet as the answer to everyone’s prayers. For the health nut or natural medicine lover in your life, this is a good bet. The powder contains reishi and ashwagandha, both known for their medicinal properties.
Massagers aren’t the sort of thing you buy for yourself. It’s the kind of thing you don’t think you need until you get one and find yourself using it constantly. Massagers have come a long way and this RAEMAO got a solid 5 stars on Amazon – an achievement indeed.
16. Tea Tree Oil Foot Soak
Combining the tingly, soothing feel of tea tree on your skin with a warm footbath? Genius. This is the perfect stocking stuffer for someone who’s always complaining about their sore feet.
17. Therapy Dough
This essential oil-infused play dough isn’t marketed to kids. It’s for stressed-out adults who want to relive a bit of childhood glee. This gift is great for chronic fidgeters or anyone who needs a little stress relief technique to keep at their work desk.
18. Muscle Rub
There are those who need muscle ointment and those who NEED muscle ointment. In any case, once you apply it, you’ll be in heaven. Chronically sore and achy muscles are soothed in just minutes. Again, a perfect stocking stuffer for hard workers who need some R&R.
19. Bath Bombs
You’re either a bath bomb person or you’re totally not. If you know a bath bomb enthusiast, this is the ideal gift for them.
20. Ax Throwing Kit
If the soothing suggestions above don’t quite cut the tension, a round of ax-throwing should do the trick. It’s perfect for those who prefer more rugged stress relief techniques. Just remember to teach the recipient some safety precautions before handing over this gift.

The Most Notable Things that Happened in 2022
As the year comes to a close, most of us do some personal reflection and take stock of the year behind us. We do this collectively too, and in 2022, a lot happened.
Let’s be real: Some of the things on this list will definitely bum you out. If you thought 2020 was apocalyptic, 2022 had its fair share of catastrophes too. But it wasn’t all bad. Here is a recap of the past 12 months: the good, the bad, and the ugly.
Global inflation rates surged to double – and even triple – digits.
Inflation is probably the lamest news story of the year. And what’s worse, we have an unnecessary war to thank for it. In 2022, nearly every nation in the world experienced rising inflation. Consumers became painfully aware of price increases early on in the year – especially at the gas pump. In many wealthier countries, this was the highest inflation rate seen in decades.
Fortunately, the IMF predicts that 2023 will see the US inflation rate decrease to 6.5% and drop another two points in 2024. Let’s hope they’re right.
A nuclear fusion breakthrough opens up a world of possibility.
On a much cooler note, scientists finally experienced a breakthrough in their efforts to achieve “ignition” (generating more energy than was used in a nuclear reaction).
Skeptics were quick to assert that nuclear fusion isn’t a quick fix for climate change, nor a viable replacement for fossil fuels. But optimists say this scientific breakthrough is just the beginning of a clean energy revolution. Regardless of who’s right, a scientific milestone that various teams have attempted for years has finally been reached.
The Russian-Ukrainian War breaks out.
The outbreak of war is definitely the most horrific and heartbreaking event on this list. With millions of Ukrainians displaced and thousands of innocent lives lost, there is no excuse for the atrocities that have occurred at the hands of the Russian military. Having begun in February, the two countries now face the sobering reality of nearly one year at war.
Maya Angelou got her own quarter.
Maya Angelou’s reputation precedes her. She’s known as one of the most beloved authors, poets, and civil rights activists of her time. So many were excited to hear that she’d be the first black woman ever featured on a US quarter.
She joins the ranks of Helen Keller, Susan B. Anthony, and just a few other women featured on US currency to date.
The cryptocurrency rollercoaster happened.
The dramatic ups and downs of the crypto market were its own news saga in 2022. At the start of the year, Bitcoin enthusiasts were confidently riding the wave of the 2021 record high. But just a few months later, the currency took a nosedive erasing most of that progress.
The failure of terraUSA in May further damped enthusiasm, and the collapse of FTX in November put another nail in the coffin of crypto’s dismal year. Whether 2022 will be just a blip in the radar or the beginning of the end of cryptocurrency is yet to be seen.
Abortion rights were revoked.
In a bizarre turn of events, Roe v. Wade was overturned nearly 50 years after being instated. The Supreme Court made its decision in June 2022 to the shock and dismay of women all over the country. Protests raged as women asserted that their reproductive rights and bodily autonomy were suddenly being threatened again.
A domino effect ensued with health clinics being forced to close and women traveling out of state for abortions. Why the issue re-emerged after decades of relative quiet isn’t quite clear, but as usual, the right and left have polar opposite opinions.
Conversion Therapy was banned in Canada.
Just as 2022 kicked off, word spread that Canada would be criminalizing conversion therapy.
Religious groups popularized the idea that homosexuals could be converted into heterosexuals (aka ‘praying away the gay’). Many advocates of the bill say it goes a long way in protecting the rights of the LGBTQ+ community. Let’s just say it’s probably a good thing that Canada decided to do away with this unique type of “therapy” once and for all.
Natural disasters ensued around the world.
There were countless natural disasters in 2022, stoking concerns that the consequences of climate change have finally arrived. Some of the deadliest of these disasters were floods affecting India, Afghanistan, Africa, Pakistan, and Brazil. Meanwhile, a moderate earthquake rocked Indonesia and East Africa was burdened by an intense drought… just to name a few.
With nations lacking the emergency supplies to deal with such large-scale catastrophes, climate experts are worried these events will only become more commonplace as the world heats up.
Americans love marijuana, not cigs.
Depending on your views, you might consider this one a progressive step in the right direction (or a terrible epidemic that has befallen our nation). In 2022 it became official that more Americans smoked marijuana than cigarettes.
The decrease in carcinogenic cigarette smoking is an unarguable win, but opinions about pot are typically more nuanced across the population. Most states have now legalized medical marijuana and many have legalized recreational marijuana. Basically, America as a whole is embracing the plant while dropping their cigarette habit.
A Neanderthal family was discovered.
…No, unfortunately not alive. Thousands of years ago, a Siberian cave housed what researchers believe was a Neanderthal family – a father, teenage daughter, and several other relatives. They were able to extract the ancient DNA from the teeth and bones found in two different Russian caves.
While these aren’t the first Neanderthal remains ever found, it’s the first group living in close proximity during the same timeframe, giving researchers much more detail to work with. The landmark discovery will likely give us a better picture of what life was like for these ancient humans.
It’s certainly not everything, but those are some highlights from 2022. Whatever your thoughts on this past year, we’re wishing you a wildly successful 2023. Cheers!
