Fashion Roundup

The Burtonwode brand was born in 2010 when artist, David Huglin identified a distinct lack of options for men who sought high quality woven underwear. Huglin had always liked the name of the M62 motorway service station, Burtonwode.

This humorous approach perfectly sums up the brand, a classic sartorial style boxer short with a ‘tongue-in-cheek’ twist. The pants themselves are custom printed in Carlisle and then twice softened before travelling to Canning Town to be finished and hand packed. Huglin covers all bases in terms of design, leaving no annoyingly itchy labels and no buttons on the fly… ‘If you’re going to have a gate, why padlock it’. The classic cut is slim fitting with side gussets for those with ‘athletes’ thighs.

This allows them to be worn with a slim trouser with no danger of bunching, a common problem that we are all too familiar with. The short is made up of five panels of 100% softened cotton and an extra back panel to eliminate an often uncomfortable seam position, thus avoiding any ‘riding up’. The underwear is beautifully packaged in a magnet fastening box that is branded.

Dockers® brand has embodied the spirit of Khaki for more than quarter of a century. Since its origination, the brand has been perfecting art the art of Khaki; good looking pants in a full range of fits and finishes as well as the essential goods to go with them for men the world over. Just versatile, essential style from Monday to Sunday. Khakis any guy can wear from desk to dinner. Wearing the pants has never looked so good. In 2011, the brand made their boldest move to date, launching the Dockers Alpha Khaki as an alternative to denim; ‘Where Jeans End and Khakis Begin’.

Converse’s foundations lie firmly in Sport. Basketball star Chuck Taylor put his name to the ‘All Star’ court shoe back in the 1920s and the slightly revamped style continues to be a worldwide bestseller today. The following decade, World Champion Badminton player, Jack Purcell put his signature to his badminton shoe. To this day the sneaker retains the legacy of its namesake. It is a more ‘grown up’ trainer than the Chuck Taylor and is instantly recognisable with the ‘smile’ adorning its toe unit. The sole is rubber, and the upper canvas, but the shoe is available in a multitude of fabrics including a shirting fabric and suede. A pair of Jack Purcell’s perfectly complements today’s menswear trend.

British contemporary beachwear company Orlebar Brown have certainly raised the standards in the stylish design and undeniable quality of the tailored swimshort. The Orlebar Brown Bulldog swimshort is quickly becoming an iconic fixture on the beaches and pools of holiday resorts around the world.
