Many people talk about timeless style like it's the holy grail of menswear. Style immortality. Immunity from the whims of fashion. But is it really possible? The answer is yes and no.

When it comes to trends forecasting, one of the most common assumptions (and also one of the most debatable) is that, in times of economic recession, fashion tends to follow rather than direct consumers perambulating through the path of style.
