Striped swim short $95, Psycho Bunny polo, Bustle jacket $225. Check swim short $110.
Just like shorts, swim shorts have gone from knee-length and baggy to above the knee and fitted. Throw out your old board shorts and get into the new swim shorts. Parke and Ronen make great shorts in lots of colours and prints. They may be shorter than you’re used to, but women love seeing some leg as much as you do!
Toro Magazine included us in their Cool Summer Style article, with a few pieces from Juma and Paper Back.
Left: Military remains on point, note the khaki cargos. And when it comes to shades, vintage is definitely the inspiration. Tank top by Juma ($45).
Below: Light summer sweaters can be dressed up or dressed down. Cut-offs are key but the look is long and lean. Dress up your look with some all-weather walkers in black calfskin. Shorts by Paper Back ($110).
Juma is our latest Canadian line for the everyday, fashion forward individual. Working best with the taller, slender built guys, these pieces have been constructed with beautiful fabrics, silks, and cashmere. Soft and smooth to the touch, these higher end tops, shorts, and scarves are built to impress.
Available from Juma are silk shirts ($175), tank tops ($45), shorts ($125), and two styles of scarves ($175).
The Farah brand was born in the 1920s but it was not until the 1970s in the UK that it reached the cult status it holds today.
The original Farah slack made from hopsack canvas became an immediate hit with the youth of britain: slim cut, sharply tailored and featuring stain resistant technology, the trouser was unlike anything available at the time.
Momentum for the brand grew and in the 1980s Farah became a must have label amongst fashion savvy hipsters, including the mods, skins, sticksmen and rocker-billys. Seen on the balconies at gigs across the UK music scene, each group interpreted the brand within their own style, building key farah items into what became their definitive looks. The clothes came to represent a sense of elitism while generating respect for those who displayed the now famous “Farah F Tab”.
Today the Farah label still holds the heritage and vigour it stood for then. A whole new generation of men throughout the world are drawn to the brand’s history and inspired to rediscover the distinct look for themselves.
Not all items in the branding shots above are available at the store, but we did order a vast amount of pieces from their collection:
Gold Lab – Two Angle was started in 1999, the collaboration of a NY designer and a French style house. Two Angle delivers two visions (hence the name!) NY street hip hop combined with Parisian flare.
For Spring, I loved their dropped cropped sweat shorts ($115) and motorcycle inspired sweatshirt ($95). If you’re going to go comfy casual, why not look good doing it?
And their denim utility shirt jacket is a steal at $95!
