Uniform dressing used to mean putting your favorite clothes on repeat in order to be the most potent version of yourself (see: Thom Browne's gray short suits, Justin Theroux's all-black everything). In 2018, thanks to the Civicore trend, uniform dressing is more literal. Wearing the actual uniform of any virtuous, physically skilled man is very much a thing right now. Construction workers, army soldiers, astronauts, basketball heroes, and house painters have all had fashion moments recently. Up next: firemen.
Louis Vuitton, Calvin Klein 205W39NYC, Undercover, Heron Preston, and Junya Watanabe all showed admiration for firemen on the Fall 2018 runways. With reflective stripes and big cargo pockets, the references were not even a little bit vague. Whether you spend $3,000 or $30, we say indulge your inner 6-year-old and have fun with this trend. You can be a full-on fireman for Halloween, then break the uniform up and mix it in with your regular clothes in November and December. You still have regular clothes, right?
