Staff Picks - Dan 2nd August 2012
Thursday 02/08/12 - 01.23PM
Im back in from ordering, here's my weekly pick of what's good.
Now I'm back in the office after what seems like forever ordering product for Spring 2013 it feels good to be turning my attention back to the present and some of the good stuff that's arrived with us in the last week or so.
The Levis 508's are one of my favourite Levis cuts at the moment. Being a bit chunky round the thighs they're loose enough at the top and run slimmer at the bottom, making a nice tapered, slight carrot fit. Actually Levi's have changed the shape of the skinny 511 for this season and I've found that I can slide into those also which is a result. These are the Monochrome pack Levis 508's at a great £64.99 too...
Can't beat these new Vans Era's in the seasonal Van Doren fabric. Tonal enough to be worn every day but enough pop to stand out, perfect blending of the brown, gold and khaki colours. The washed canvas affects adds a nice final touch. In for £53.00.
Ah the ever decent Penfield Kasson Jacket, one of my favourite jackets all year round as it happens. Penfield seems to have got the shape just right, patch pockets, hood, all sorted nicely. I've picked this new one out for its burgundy colour, new for Fall 2012 its going to be a banger. Still coming in at £140
We like Ivan at Skulls Barcelona, a one man cap designing machine! Sitting in his NYC appartment he's pulled a load of vintage prints out of the bag so on this new drop he's gone for safe, subtle and classic colours across the board. This is a simple, Black version of his ever popular 5 Panel Cap.
Finishing my pick list off with the new Carhartt Truck T-Shirt, whats not to like about a redneck's ute on a clean, crisp white Carhartt t-shirt. Plus, if im feeling flush this week I might pick up the new Eastpak x Wood Wood iPhone case as the quality is just amazing with its smooth leather fabric, in for £35 which I guess for this quality isn't so out there.
