In the era of coronavirus, face coverings, whether fabric or medical masks, are a necessity for social distancing when we’re out and about, and as such have become as much a part of our style, and how we express it, like any other accessory in our wardrobe.
Thankfully it seems that these days there is a fabric face mask style to fit every personality, and that goes for men, too! There are cheeky prints that will spark a laugh, and motifs dedicated to hobbies – including video games. For the classic guy, there are masks in traditional menswear fabrics and if you love a bolder fashion print, you can find masks in Versace-style baroque. There are even extra-large face masks for men with beards!

Masks are definitely a must-have. The World Health Organization (WHO) says that wearing non-medical fabric masks, which should be washed in hot water and detergent daily, will help protect others around you and prevent the spread of COVID-19.
