The development of mainstream and classical menswear design has an established place in fashion history. However, since many young designers are turning toward contemporary apparel markets, the study of modern Western avant-garde menswear design becomes more and more inadequate. Undoubtedly, avant-garde menswear is emerging in the form of unique menswear markets and even becoming the mainstream trend in recent years. Therefore, this thesis focuses on research since the 1960s regarding anti-traditional styles of Western menswear to address the development of menswear design through analyzing historical context, aesthetic changes, cultural differences and psychological factors. The thesis presents examples of various designers` work to examine and prove the significant change in menswear design.
