Time to toughen up.
Initially designed for hard-graft and durability, Workwear now stands for quality, tradition and long-lasting appeal.
It is all about details, from the hem on your jean, to the stitching on your collar and cuffs, workwear clothes are built on traditional styles and built to last.
Drawing inspiration from a Japanese utilitarian aesthetic, Edwin’s distinctive collection of apparel and world-renowned denim products are not only a testament to the brand’s rich heritage but also the resurgence of workwear to the forefront of men’s fashion.
Representing this, we saw it only fitting for Edwin to take the focus of our latest Edit #21- Workwear.
Despite the clue being in the name, this Work Jacket from Edwin is a perfect example to show how workwear can be so easily incorporated to any look. The traditional design, cut in to a slightly shorter body as so typical with workwear pieces, features a single chest pocket, two hand pockets and a classic snap button fastening. Enlaced with a rugged edge, through the natural indigo aesthetic, which will age beautifully over time, the Work Jacket lends itself for easy layering throughout winter. Be it with a simple Edwin Long Sleeve T-Shirt as featured or over the Edwin Charcoal Shackle Rollneck Sweater for a warmer feel.
A versatile hybrid of a workwear sweater and a staple long sleeve t-shirt, this Grey Marl T-Shirt from Edwin is the ideal layering base this winter. Crafted from a luxury cotton jersey for a supremely soft handle and comfortable fit, the classic silhouette is reworked with contrast stitch detailing and a rolled hem for a subtle nod to the workwear trend. Complete in a relaxed design, it can be easily incorporated in a range of looks from workwear to sports sophisticated- as featured in Edit #3.
Workwear doesn’t mean distressed, ripped styles but rather heritage-inspired silhouettes that are forged from formidable craftsmanship. These ED-85 Slim Tapered Jeans, once again from Edwin, are a prime example. The latest edition in the brand’s renowned 5-pocket denim collection, the ED-85 silhouette is a comfortable, relaxed style made from elasticated fibres for a flexible, care-free fit. Refined with signature reinforced coin pocket and brown leather waist patch on the back, these Edwin jeans exude luxury down to the very last detail.
No workwear-inspired outfit is complete without a robust, versatile shoe and there can be no better choice this season than the Diemme Light Grey Firenze Boot. Handsomely residing between a winter boot and a more stylish, contemporary shoe, the Firenze boot combines casual styling with the brand’s signature rugged construction. Blending a luxury leather upper with a complimenting suede body in a clean light grey colourway, the Boots are refined with a brown leather lining, tonal lacing system and a cream Vibram rubber sole unit. Wear your Firenze boots with a slightly turned up jean to show them off in true Italian style.
