The spring / summer 2013 collection is military-inspired with a fresh twist, dominated by indigo toned items that are bleached down and over-dyed in colorful summer shades. Amongst the desaturated undertones of the garments are pops of minty green, whites, and neon colors to keep the pieces light – think casually stylish guy ventures to the equator, with no iron.

October 7th, 2012 – Over on the left coast, Andy Mueller, creative director of Los Angeles based fashion house Quiet Life, is stitching up some seriously cool hats. Three of these hats, Native, Mountain and Denim Herringbone, fall under a limited collection of Quickstrike 5 Panel caps. The Mountain 5 Panel and Native 5 Panel hats are both comfortably constructed of a narrative scenic fabric which embodies a major part of Mueller’s passion, who became addicted to the art of image making and photo taking at a very young age.

Warriors Of Radness has something to get off their chests in regards to their fall collection: “Well, summer’s just about over, and it looks like we’ll have to take the party to the backyard fire pit out here in Southern California. But with the nights getting longer it just means there’s more time to drink more beer, smoke more herb, and #%&@! more chicks.” It’s clear that Warriors Of Radness, led by designer Rick Klotz, is about more than just clothes! They are about the people who wear the clothes, their lifestyle, their activities, and their **cough, cough** extracurricular activities! Klotz knows exactly who he is designing for and he dresses them well. WOR represents the new West Coast traditionalism with their latest Fall collection including bull denim team jackets, washed out knits, overdyed denim jackets, crewneck pattern sweaters, and bleached out muscle pants.

Agape Mdumulla and Sam Cotton are a fashion design duo with the belief that fashion should never be taken too seriously. Their mantra is boldly apparent throughout their first collection, titled The Native American Colonization of European States. The collection is described by Agi & Sam as “dissecting pop culture whilst looking back to an idealized notion of the Native American way of life presented in Wild West movies such as Once Upon a Time in the West (1968) by Sergio Leone. References are torn apart, manipulated and reassembled to create eye-catching, wearable clothes with a humorous twist.” Agi & Sam is a London-based label with a fresh, playful approach to men’s clothing. The garments offer a refreshing mix of understated silhouettes and innovative kaleidoscopic prints. The duo pairs a man-sized onesie with an overcoat and suede shoes, giving Casual Friday’s a run for their money.

Alright gentlemen, we hate to do this to you now after you’ve finally become comfortable wearing pink, but pink just isn’t enough anymore to prove your wardrobe has a sweet, sensitive touch.

Humor is a Danish fashion house that doesn’t take its self too seriously! Though the clothing company is well known in Scandinavia and throughout Europe they have yet to make their mark here in the states. Maybe, their S/S 2011 collection will help bridge the gap? The inspiration for the collection comes from electronic music and the pulse from the ever changing urban street wear.The team behind Humor describes the collection as a “fashion lego, providing the bricks to create one’s own identity”. The lego description comes into play with the idea that the you can mix and match the items each being interchangeable with the next, yet still being cohesive with an individual look. Calling all men: Take a double take at your closet, if the mere sight of it makes you bored, check in on our friends over at Humor and they will help you out! Warning: Their website may or may not make you dizzy!

Tim and Fiona Slack, founding designers of T & F Slack Shoemakers are not new to the shoe scene. Back in the 70′s this design duo was the first to move away from the huge platform look and kick started a sophisticated and tailored dress shoe trend; reviving British classics with a unique mixture of color. These days, T & F Slack are launching their latest collection called The Derby. The Derby, otherwise known as The Gibson, refers to a style of shoe where the laces are sewn on top of the vamp, “open lacing.” In this collection the shoes come with two different types of soles, a lightweight micro sole in a range of different colors, or stitched leather soles.

Gustavo Lins is a formally educated Architect from Brazil. It wasn’t until a wise architecture professor of his started questioning his choice of mediums, did he realize that he should be constructing clothes, not homes. Lin’s architectural vocabulary speaks volumes in his fashion collections. The designer took menswear connoisseurs by storm with his latest collection using leather-piped wool shirts and jackets, paper-thin leather tunics, clean-lined drap de laine wool coats, and draped wool jersey sweaters pulling together such basic materials and using them in a sophisticated and elegant way.
We don’t think we need to explain why this Large Pocket Shirt ranks high on our totally awesome chart. Beyond the fact that this is probably the most functional cotton T-shirt we have ever seen, this shirt is sure to cause some double takes and act as quite the conversation starter. The pocket is large enough to hold your ipad, ipod, and your iphone…even an outrageously over proportioned pencil. Oh, and did we mention it’s only 30 bucks?
