Gentlemen and fellow followers,
Today, the world of luxury and class for us gentlemen is becoming more and more fragmented. From top brands offering exclusive ranges of menswear such as Louis Vuiton, Hugo Boss, Hermes, Burberry to cite only a few, to the smaller more independent brands such as Blake&Whyte, an inspiring collaboration between a film maker and a men’s fashion designer.
The New York based luxury sportswear brand launched in 2011, designing collections for men as well as high end accessories. The styles are inspired from New York and London trends, combining the best of both worlds. Their unique selling points, to cite only a few, are their attention to detail for each shirt and coat and the fit.
Launching their Spring Summer 2013 collection is a range of versatile pieces designed to last for us gentlemen that appreciate true design. I’ve picked a few that I personally really like from their SS13 collection:
The simple but stylish combination of white shirt and blue hoodie with classy shorts would go well with a nice pair of boat shoes – the classic Heritage boat shoes from Timberland are always a good call. You can view the whole collection on their Tumblr here.
The grey trench coat is a good match for both a nice tailored suit for your important meetings or for a casual night out with the fellow gentlemen. Definitely a stylish item and practical considering the recent weather conditions and with spring on its way, this is a nice mid season piece to have in your wardrobe.
The Blake&Whyte team are currently expanding and actually have additional stylish pieces in store! It’s definitely worth the look, you can visit their page here. They are in the process of expanding their store and currently have a page on kickstarter to help with their expansion.
Gentlemen, Blake&Whyte is definitely an upcoming brand worth visiting!
