When it comes to keeping up with the latest trends, it’s no longer enough to keep abreast of seasonal fashion weeks and pick up the odd men’s magazine. Gone are the days where you could rely on the same capsule wardrobe for each six-month period, with things moving so fast in 2020 that it can be difficult to keep on top of the latest look du jour.
One place that will never let you down though, is Instagram – not just because some of its users are some of the sharpest dressers on the planet, but because they are the ones setting the trends, too. Taking inspiration from some of the latest season’s must have pieces, it only takes the ‘right’ person being seen wearing a garment or carrying an accessory for it to sell out in hours – and if you take your style game seriously, then you’ll follow suit.
Once upon a time, Instagrammers were nobodies sharing self-indulgent selfies from the comfort of their bedrooms and not much else, but these days they are their own stylists who are making a lucrative living out of sharing their outfit choices online. Now, you’ll catch them donning the latest designer pieces and posing up a storm as they sip champagne in high profile luxury locations ranging from the Burj al Arab in Dubai to Nobu in Monaco, making the ultimate statement of wealth and opulence – after all, it’s not just about the look itself, but the lifestyle that comes with it, and these guys know how to sell both.
If you’re looking for some style inspiration for A/W 2020 to complement your own luxurious lifestyle, then there are plenty of accounts you should be following – and the experts at HowSociable know exactly who they are. As part of the world’s leading social media information resource, it doesn’t get much better placed than these guys when it comes to knowing who we should have our eyes on – so we asked them to handpick their top ten men’s style and fashion accounts to follow on Instagram to save you trawling the hashtags.

On the occasion of my visit to the recently-opened @smahonapoli I finally had the chance to wear this beauty made by @sartoriacuomo from an @officinepaladino beige Italian Linen. Look at the balance of both jacket and trousers and the shade of that fabric. Perfect. Please note how clean is the back as well. And the central crease falls right onto the centre of my loafers. An architectural marvel 👏🏻 Bespoke tip: when you get a linen suit, especially an Italian linen, make sure to have your tailor make sleeves and trousers 1cm longer than usual. The length in excess will be compensated by the creases that will surely appear after the first use. #linensuit #italianlinen #sartoriacuomo #smarthotelnapoli #officinepaladino ph: @montuorivincenzophotowriter
Founder of Italian lifestyle site The Bespoke Dudes, Fabio Attanasio aims to use his platform to educate men on how to seamlessly put together sharp and modern looks through the incorporation of modern tailoring.
