Soulland



From creating homemade T-shirt prints back in 2002, Soulland now reinterprets traditional craftsmanship with a present-day aesthetic into its menswear collection. With distinctly minimalist European principles, the brand continues to employ a range of colour palettes and textures for its new spring/summer collection, presenting classic menswear with a modern twist.

Now one of the most respected lifestyle labels out of Scandinavia, head designer Silas Adler and co-owner Jacob Kampp Berliner’s mix of classical and contemporary design continues to receive critical acclaim throughout the international fashion community.


Garbstore



Unfamiliar Vintage has long been the philosophy of Garbstore. Drawing ideas from clothing produced after the Second World War, familiar garments reflect the past but offer something new for the discerning modern gent. Making ‘historically new’ quality pieces, re-imagined to fit present-day demands – functional design and superior craftsmanship combine to form a collection tailored to fit, feel good and last.

Sourcing material from Western Japan, Garbstore’s denim legacy continues. Using the finest, high quality denim available crafted to a superior standard, the label ensure a superlative fit for its growing army of aficionados.


Lightning Bolt



Born in Hawaii in the summer of 1971, Lightning Bolt represents a philosophy that surfing, in its truest form, is a way of life. Spring/summer 2015 is a mark of maturity for the brand across the board.

The new collection has evolved to be clean, bold and rugged - punctuated by elements of heritage with added functionality. Materials are carefully selected, building a collection of core products, set to endure any testing adventures, without losing the renowned details, stitch, and trim now synonymous with the brand. Waterproofing, technical closures and industrially built seams with clean interior finishing, as well as a focus on organic fibres, are upheld throughout the new range. Lightning Bolt’s meticulous approach to design and functionality embodies the evolution of the pioneering spirit, while continuing to remain timeless in essence.


tuktuk



In 2009, Mark Scholes escaped the blustery, rainy conditions of Manchester, relocating to Sri Lanka. The move proved pivotal, as the inspiration of the tropics provided a headful of ideas and opportunity to set about doing his own thing with just £200 in his pocket. Managing to successfully source local fabrics and production, tuktuk was born. 

Finding originality from daily surroundings – whether it be a cold city in the North of England or a paradisiacal island in the middle of the Indian Ocean – colours, flavours, experiences and personalities are all contributing factors in the creation of the label’s clothing and accessories. Understanding the need to be individual, garments are not only well made, but crafted from specially selected fabrics only available in low quantities. With a nod to yesteryear, tuktuk makes classic menswear with a dash of colour and nostalgia.


Harry Stedman


 
While still relatively young, this London label finds inspiration to create menswear for the contemporary classes by drawing on the life adventures of one Mr Harry Stedman.
 
Blending old with new in pursuit of timeless style, American heritage and staple workwear combines with an Ivy League sophistication, to embrace vintage styling perfected for the debonair. An appreciation for fabric and fit are evident within the collection, with cloths sourced from the UK, Japan, Europe and America, ensuring each product has just the right characteristics, durability and wearability and presents a winning formula.
