The Tech Tastemaker
Not quite a full Gorpcore fanatic, but with an appreciation of well-made, modern, functional fashion. This look is perfect for your weekend adventures.
From the ground up: a fun and bold take on a functional classic, the Flow Borough Low Trainers from Columbia come in what they describe as a ‘Stratus & Mango’ colourway; even this sounds perfect for Summer! A rugged rubber sole will see you striding in style on your summer escapes while the breathable upper, structured silhouette and secure lacing system ensure the utmost comfort every step of the way.
Continuing the sunshine story is the classic striped t-shirt from Norse Projects. A pure cotton composition means a quality feel and endless comfort. The climbing shorts come from Polo Ralph Lauren and are made from a lightweight, breathable nylon which means they’re comfortable and quick drying. An elasticated waist and quick-clasp webbing belt make them the perfect fit and the above the knee cut means they’re ideal for a summer hike.
Your lightweight layer comes from Parajumpers. The Hagi Jacket in the grey colourway is made from a lightweight durable nylon fabric with a weightless quilted lining, stand up collar and iconic yellow throat tab. Two side pockets and a zip-closed patch pocket to the arm will carry anything you need and the Parajumpers branding to the shoulder finishes the jacket off with style. This look if finished off with a classic cap from Belstaff, just what you need to keep the sun at bay and to anchor your look.
The Premium Player
The very best fabrics, premium craftsmanship and tailoring, modern silhouettes and luxury labels. An outdoors inspired look elevated for the luxury lover.
The key piece in this look is the gilet; a lightweight fleece option, perfect for the transitional styling of spring and autumn. The muted colourway and classic Belstaff branding keep it clean and contemporary. Paired with a crew neck sweat from Maharishi, this is perfect adaptable layering. The sweat features a large embroidered design the back and a small chest emblem, both in a complimentary off-black tone. A White Mountaineering logo t-shirt is the perfect base layer and still holds its own if the sun comes out and layers are shed.
The logger pants from White Mountaineering are a true investment piece. A soft yet durable TEXBIRD® fabric has water repellent properties, the shape is perfect and features double front slip pockets and flap pockets to the seat and thighs. The perfect fusion of function, fabric technology and style. A classic pair of adidas Originals Spezial finish the look perfectly with the gum sole continuing the earthy hues story right back down to the ground.
The Jet Setter
An escape to warmer climes on the cards? Short sleeves, sunglasses, shorts and sandals; you’re welcome.
Let’s just dive straight in and talk about those sunglasses. The shape, the frame colour, the tint. You can thank Oliver Peoples for these, they’re an antique gold tone with metal and acetate frame and a premium case to ensure their safety. The shirt, which perfectly continues the sunshine story, is from PS Paul Smith. A lightweight fabric, cuban-collared design and premium finish oozes class. The option of a lightweight jacket from Polo Ralph Lauren is perfect and the colour sits nicely with the rest of the look.
A pair of classic off-white shorts from Norse Projects keep it simple and clean with the perfect fit and a just-above-the-knee shape. Your ever faithful Arizona sandals from Birkenstock carry a relaxed yet refined feel and the briefcase from Filson is both functional and seriously stylish. All together you have a luxury look which will carry you from Manchester to The Med and beyond.
The Man About Town
Nipping out for a coffee? Popping in to the office? This look covers all bases; comfortable, clean, casual.
The classic polo shirt from Fred Perry has an updated colour which brings a fresh spring feel and carries all of the history and heritage of one of Britain’s biggest brands. Another British icon supplies the overshirt. Belstaff’s switch style is lightweight and versatile. A stand up collar gives an outerwear feel but the lightweight nylon construction marks it as a perfect spring layer.
Dark denim from Nudie Jeans co. anchors the look and keeps the casual feeling while a pair of soft toned boots from Clarks Originals keeps up the fresh, spring feeling. This truly is a look that would suit every man and keep you looking sharp during your mid-week mooch.
