Trending in Mens: Sports Luxe

It’s not hard to see why Sports Luxe is trending. It’s comfy, sporty and fashionable. We are seeing more and more brands creating these sport inspired clothes that you can wear anywhere. The likes of Adidas, Stussy and Zanerobe are leading this trend and are doing it well.

Portraying a loose, laid back look, the sports luxe trend suits the winter/spring transition. The addition of prints on teeschinos and bomber jackets have really pushed this trend to its full potential. Including joggers that have been created for a more stylish sports luxe look, will give you comfortability yet are very fashionable.

A balanced look is also given with a spray jacket. They may trigger an old fashioned look, but the new colours and designs that RVCA, Rusty and Vans plus many more, offer is eye opening. The lightweight spray jackets are designed for rain, hail or shine keeping your top half high and dry.

Items of the week: Printed Pants

fashion-week-spring-summer-2012-street-style-print-trousers-pants

Look hot in the cold with printed pants! This week I feature an item that is good enough to cosy up home with a movie or wear out for a night on the town. With a few key and easily adjustable pieces you can have two looks that couldn’t be further from each other. Choose a slimline fit to flatter the legs, elasticised waistband for comfort and tapered cuffs to draw the pants in and you set for a relaxed winter in style.

T331370RAS-TIGERLILY-1

Tigerlily Bandhini Pant- Rasberry $129.95

These Tigerlily pants are the perfect cut, fit and pattern. With darker hues they blend seamlessly into your winter colour palette of navys, black and greys. They have just the right amount of slouchiness and comfort with a thick elastic waistband that you can easily wear them for a lazy day around the house or dress them up by pairing some slim heels, a basic tee and statement jacket. The Bandhini Pant is versatility at its finest.

0S3760BLK-STUSSY-1

Stussy Bandana Trackpant- Black $79.95

Are these every guy’s dream pants? They are super comfy, you can throw them on and you’re out the door or roll straight out of bed, into a day with the boys and then out for beers at night all without changing! With a bold pattern and drop crotch all these pants are missing is a thrown on jumper for day or a basic black/ white tee and black bomber jacket for night and you’re set.

Appreciate the Chino, Gentlemen.

As a pant, I feel we often underestimate and undervalue the chino. It’s versatile, it can be taken from casual to cool, it can be worn with a wide variety of items – from clashing blazers and boat shoes, to singlets and Vans, AND it’s multi-seasonal. This is what makes the chino today’s mens wardrobe staple. What makes them even cooler? They’ve been around for a ridiculously long time, and have survived the trials and tribulations of mens style throughout the decades. Here’s my take on some ways to wear your chinos.

Cuff them, mix them with print, and wear loafers and a funky hat.

This makes your chinos the blank canvas for this work of art – making the print pop and giving your look a relaxed indy edge.

Shop the look:

1. Stussy Animal Rayon SS Shirt – Black. 2. Element Palladium Pant – Khaki. 3. Raen x Alex Knost Flowers Sunglasses – Matte Rootbeer. 4. Brixton Jones Hat – Black.

Put a denim jacket on it.

This is the after-dark edition. Dark chinos and dark denim adds some texture and interest, and a clean crisp collared shirt tops off the look with some class. Enjoy your martini.

Shop the look:

1. G-Star Raw Arc 3D Denim Jacket – Medium Aged. 2. Hurley Ace Oxford SS Shirt – Blue Oxford. 3. Quiksilver Krandy Pant – Indigo.

Wear ‘em with runners!

This one’s a bit Pharrell Williams, but his style’s incredible so let’s run with it (pun NOT intended). Top off with a bomber jacket and you’re set to rock those New York streets.

Shop the look:

1. DC Shoes Bombay PU Jacket – Black. 2. Billabong Slim Outsider Chino – Sand. 3. Nike Mavrk Mid 3 Shoe – Black Hyper Red. 4. Happy Socks Wool Socks – Blue.

JUST GO ALL OUT WITH COLOUR.

This is loud and you have to be daring. If you’re not comfortable clashing two bright colours, start off with bright chinos and a white shirt and a pair of boots. Trust me, you’ll make an impression.

Shop the look:

1. Stussy NYC Tee – True White. 2. Insight Civilian II Chino Pant – Mckenzie. 3. Palladium Baggy Hi Shoe – Black.

Skater Boy.

Chinos. Vans. Tee. Board. That’s pretty much it!

Shop the look:

1. Long Lost Roadster Tee – Char. 2. Billabong Havana Chino Pant – Burgundy. 3. Vans Mens Authentic Shoe – Black. 4. Element Seal 7-75 Complete – Multi.

STEAL MY STYLE: David

This week, David from Customer Service shares his eclectic easy-going style and his SurfStitch favourites with us!

1. Globe Blazer Cruiser – Clear Red. $179.99.

You can’t forget the little portable ‘conveyor belt’ to get your from A to B.. Bear in mind you’ll probably end up detouring via C, D and E because you won’t want to get off this little weapon!!

2. Stussy Basic Solid Rayon SS Shirt – Military. $59.95.

Nice simple, classic shirt that will find itself appropriate in a world of different settings. Best coupled with a pair of dark jeans and a pair of dark Vans.

3. Stussy Leopard Pigment Crew Fleece – Pigment Black. $89.95.

This is top of the wish list; great washed colour, it goes with light and dark. Perfect weight to throw straight on after you get out of the surf for a hit of warmth this time of year. Also you’re in early for a winter filled with intimidating others with your ferocious leopard fleece. Just imagine revealing this bad boy from under your jacket, as if Clark Kent changing into his alter ego, when someone tries to swipe your juice box.. not happening Bud.

4. Assembly Albatross Jacket – Rust. $129.95.

As much as I deny it on a daily basis; the cooler months are approaching. This is a great number to throw over your shoulders as you’re leaving the office and headed to dinner to allow the early evening chill to sweep its exterior. Worn on top of a dark pair of chinos or jeans, the options of layering with loud patterns or keeping it neutral underneath actually open it to being a super diverse jacket (think earthy colours).”

5. Komono The Magnus Watch – Silver Burgundy. $119.95.

This is the sort of watch that will hug your wrist and follow you from work to play to adventure and back again, it will complement your suit, or help to balance out those walkshorts you should have replaced a few years ago.  That classic simple time telling watch that will still catch everyone’s eye.

6. Stussy Printed Rayon SS Shirt – Blue. $79.95.

Try and have a bad day when you’ve got fish on your shirt.

The photo I chose gets me out of my seat. I love seeing people taking ideas like this and floating them. It inspires me to run with new ideas as opposed to waiting for the water to be tested and missing the thrill of the risk. The barrier breakers will be the people with the stories worth hearing in the old folks home.”

Urban, edgy and California cool all rolled into a lazy suburban afternoon setting. Insight’s latest lookbook focuses around denim and its many faces and styles.
