Our favourite looks from this year’s 86th Annual Academy Awards:
This week we can’t keep our eyes off the daring adventures of Mike “Rooftop” Escamilla!
In his words #betheadventure
Our pick for our style piece this week is the Levi’s Commuter Jean, (our stylist’s favourite), the design sticks to the traditional Levi’s look but with added ‘cycling’ features. The fabric used has added elastane, creating stretchier material for added comfort. The jeans have also been treated with NanoSphere, making them water and dirt repellent. Our favourite feature of the Commuter is the reflectice outer seems on both legs- Overall, creating a great pair of long lasting and functional trousers.
With cycling becoming more and more popular, particularly within cities, we wanted to share with you our favourite place to get a bike. Kennedy City Bicycles lets you design your own, the first step being choosing the colour of your frame; cream, teal, mustard or black. At the second stage you pick the colour of the leather and thirdly the shape of the handle bars. The bikes start at around £495 for a single speed 51cm version, different sizes are also available as well as a two speed option.
The idea behind Kennedy’s is to enable anyone to afford a decent good-looking bike, helping everyone to get outside and enjoy their city. It’s about the right balance between quality, value for money and beauty.
In the words of the guys at Kennedy ‘We want to save people money, help them explore the cities they live in, get them outdoors and take them away from air conditioned cars, smelly trains and the crazy guy next to you on the bus… We want people to enjoy the adventure, the freedom and the beauty that comes with cycling the city streets’.
This Vancouver based photographer has documented his exploring for us all to see. Strohl manages to soak up the atmosphere of the Canadian Wilderness through only a lense, creating beautifully quiet shots. If you need inspiration to get out of the city at the weekend, this is it!
Although the English weather doesn’t suggest it, Spring is just around the corner, time to move on from the bulky heavier coats to lighter windbreakers. In our opinion, some of the very best windbreakers you can add to your wardrobe this season are made by Baracuta.
The jackets can be easily rolled up and stowed away for trips to the country or layered over shirts and jumpers whilst out in the city. The trademark tartan lining ensures others know that you’re a guy who relies on performance as well as style, with a choice of colours to choose from you can feel assured this jacket can accompany all looks.
Founded in pre-war Manchester, the classic Baracuta G9 became a mid-20th Century icon when James Dean wore a bright red version as Jim Stark in Rebel Without A Cause. The G9 became even more famous when Steve McQueen wore his in the 1968 movie The Thomas Crown Affair. Having appeared on the cover of Life magazine in his G9, Hollywood’s most saught after actor became synonymous with the Baracuta Harrington.
If you would like to own one of these jackets or would like more information contact one of our stylists today!
