We are days from the official beginning of spring and it really can’t come soon enough. March 20th marks the turning point for the weather and therefore our wardrobes. From the muted winter palette to patterns and flashes of colour, the spring wardrobe switchover can be difficult to navigate so we thought we’d offer a few suggestions from the likes of Aimé Leon Dore, G.H. Bass & Co. and Instrmnt. For good measure, we’ve thrown in some timeless home decor from Rex Kralj and Rear View Prints.
The striped Oxford shirt for men is a preppy essential, especially as we move into the warmer months. It speaks of barbecues, outdoor cocktails and long days in the sun. Aimé Leon Dore’s Striped Oxford is one of the more memorable of its kind thanks to a patchwork of striped motifs. Several pastel hues are brought together in the 100% cotton construction that’s finished with ALD branded pearl buttons.
If we’re talking prep, G.H. Bass & Co. Weejuns have to make an appearance. This timeless penny loafer for men is an icon in men’s footwear because of its understated appearance and focus on quality. Polished black leather uppers are stitched to a soft compound rubber sole with a polyurethane footbed so you’ll be as comfortable as you are sharp.
Finish off your look with our favourite accessory of the moment, the Instrmnt D-Series. This men’s diving watch offers a new look at the style with a super-understated aesthetic. A sweeping second hand circles the black steel dial which features Luminova markings in subtle Helvetica Neue. When it comes to minimal watches for men, look no further than Instrmnt.
Rear View Prints gives us the opportunity to show our love for the legendary Porsche 911 even within our homes. The Rear View Prints 911 Turbo Poster details the evolution of this undefeated champion in accurate but stylised fashion. While we’re still saving up for the real thing, this poster will give us our Porsche 911 fix.
