The post-Christmas period is always a hard time of year. You've spent all your money going out during the holidays, you're back at work, it's cold, and to top it all off, there doesn't seem to be anything to look forward to. Well, fortunately, we're here to remind you that summer is only around the corner with a whole bunch of new ranges.
Below we are going to introduce you to the newest and best brands we have on The Idle Man website for the new spring/summer 2018. We are now introducing the likes of Kestin Hare, Russell Athletic, Nineties favourite Kappa and Albam into the fold, so make sure you're kitted out in all the right brands this spring.
Russell Athletic is one of those brands that is seeing its fortunes change. Where you may have once associated it with your old school P.E. kit, it has now become a brand that has seen a surge in its popularity, thanks to the huge success of brands like Champion. Founded in 1902, it is an American brand with a heritage as rich as its future.
While it was once the brand behind athletes across the world, after 115 years of sponsoring athletes and creating team uniforms across rugby, tennis and swimming (to name just a few of the sports it was tied with), Russell Athletic now focuses on created quality garments for the fashion conscious. Here at The Idle Man we have selected our top picks from its spring/summer 2018 appropriate line, ready for you to get to grips with this season.
We are big fans of Champion here at The Idle Man, and for the spring season we have a range of new basics. On the roster for this season we have brand new shades of all the classic sweatshirts you would expect from the brand, as well as all the old styles and shades that have become synonymous with Champion. Reverse weave crew neck jumpers are standout options from Champion and really set the benchmark when it comes to sweatshirt design and quality.
Champion is an American brand that specialises in sportswear, but in recent years has become a streetwear favourite thanks to collaborations with the likes of Vetements. Nowadays Champion has cemented itself as a menswear staple and won't be going anywhere anytime soon.
Kappa is one of the bands that is leading the Nineties revival. Partly due to its work with brands like Gosha Rubchinskiy, Kappa has seen huge success and is going from strength to strength due to its Nineties aesthetic. Here at The Idle Man we are stocking the sportswear brand for the first time and we've got a whole section of Kappa basics that will really give your wardrobe a boost, from Kappa emblazoned sweatshirts to shorts with Kappa detailing.
Here at The Idle Man we love a heritage brand, and we love what Kestin Hare is doing with his eponymous brand. The brand originates from Edinburgh and focuses on offering shoppers the best in basic menswear. For the first time we are stocking Kestin Hare at The Idle Man, and it will really add some great quality, British-designed goods to your wardrobe.
For spring/summer 2018, Kestin Hare has called the collection The Leithers, and it’s really been inspired by the area that the brand calls home. The industrial dock area of Edinburgh has a lot of history with workwear as well as the naval and dock industries and so the collection is heavily referential of this. Think baggy trousers, striped shirts and chunky knits.
Samsoe & Samsoe
Samsoe & Samsoe defines a wearable aesthetic with a subtle, but welcomed nod to its Scandinavian heritage. The brand combines that Copenhagen cool with a quintessential Scandi spirit, which emulates into a collection of clothing that is wearable but still extremely contemporary.
Here at The Idle Man, we have recognised the strength in Samsoe & Samsoe's collections and so have introduced it to our roster of brands for spring/summer 2018. Featuring everything from breton stripes to all-over prints, the collection will seriously spruce up your wardrobe this summer.
On That Note
