Men’s Fashion Beyond Borders

Fashion is usually associated with women, or so is our mindset. The international women’s runway shows attract a bigger audience and capture more media coverage. Yet the business of men’s fashion is a 573.50 billion dollar industry, according to Statista for insights and facts. Since the 2011 revolution, the Egyptian fashion industry has expanded from mainly “manufacturer” to actually producing “designers” whose creativity and quality proudly match their international counterparts. Menswear and men’s accessory designers are no exception. We look at some of our designers and brands that have engraved their names and built a loyal following among Egypt’s most fashionable men. From the custom-made tuxes by Moaaz El-Behairy to the full-fledged range of men’s wear by Concrete there is something for everyone, from casual outings to red-carpet appearances.
