In retrospect, the 2010s were a brave and often brilliant decade for men’s Timberland fashion from the outside. It was a time of experimentation when nobody was in charge. At various points, men boasted tailoring, sports clothing and everything in between. Smart dress became casual, casual dress became fashionable.

But it didn’t work out right? We wake up in the morning after the previous decade and can already shudder on some of our clothing. Some trends in 2010, especially from the first half of the decade, have already died quietly. Crew neck T-shirts, lace knots and cuts have disappeared without having to submit a petition.

Whisper it, but even some of the classics have been a little overexposed by Instagram over the decade. They are too evergreen to fully retire, but we have to get a little tired of biker jackets, bomber jackets, chelsea boots, turtlenecks, and minimalist sneakers.

But we’re not going to put the focus on that today. Below is a list of the trends whose time has definitely expired and the question of which trends should replace them.

Functionality That Doesn’t Work
In the past two or three years, men’s fashion has become very important in utility fashion. Designers and consumers alike are enthusiastic about clothing made for a specific purpose: hiking gear, functional fabrics, trail running shoes and the warcore-inspired trend.

If someone brought out a Gore-Tex handkerchief tomorrow, we wouldn’t be surprised.

We’re all for functional fashion, but it gets a bit ridiculous when office workers put on coats suitable for Antarctica in ever milder winters, and when the runways are crowded with Call of Duty cosplay, disguised as high fashion.

Hard materials? Big. Useful design points? Give me. At some point, however, this is no longer functional. Empty, unused bags are just as decorative as sequins or flowers.

What To Wear Instead
If you are not a real reservist, leave the combat vests in peace and stick to the functional fashion that actually makes your life easier.

Breathable fabrics, sealed zips, hidden additional pockets, well-padded shoes and hoods that actually stay awake are all worthy of the modern man’s wish list.

Outdoor brands like Patagonia and The North Face are worth investing in as their wares work both in the city and in nature. They are also designed for durability and equipped with more sustainable brownie points than 90 percent of all other labels.
