Edwin AW14: No-nonsense Clothing for the Street to the Slopes

We can hardly believe its time for all our favorite brands to show us what they got for AW 2014- has 2013 been the quickest year yet? Nevertheless, here’s one of the standout collections from Japanese denim brand Edwin.

The best way to ‘feel’ the collection is to watch the awesome accompanying film created by Jonny Kight and Benjamin Robinson. The film was shot in the Les Vosges Mountains in North East France where, at times, the temperature dropped to a ball-shrinking -15ºC. A testament to guy time and good, sturdy, no-nonsense clothes, the film features Edwin’s FURTHER crew larking about on 70s trial bikes.

For those out of the know, the FURTHER crew are a motley of acquaintances known by the brand that have been gathered and sent on several road trips by now. Essentially, as described by Benjamin Robinson, Edwin’s Art Director and the director of the FURTHER films, the film is ‘a roadtrip where everyone was wearing Edwin’. This has become a tried and tested formula for the brand to establish the hardwearing, grease-stained potential of their clothing- and one that we really love.

The pieces within the collection retain that lovable sturdy, pulled-on from off the bedroom floor appeal. As the crew wades through the knee-deep snow it’s encouraging to see the new steely-washed indigo denim being dragged through the icy wet without any wincing. Throughout the collection, the color palette is casual and understated; shades of cognac, leather black and a spectrum of grey-tinged blues feel welcome and utterly wearable. Photographic mountain prints on t-shirts and flannel and Fair Isle jacquard on shirting are classical and intrinsically winter.

All in all, Edwin have got us in the mood for a little winter bromance, 70s trial bikes and all.

The 10 best men’s workout shirts to help you get fit in 2023

There are multiple things to consider when purchasing new workout apparel. You want to make sure you do your due diligence beforehand. When looking for the optimal workout shirt, functionality often takes precedence over style, for most men. After all, a minimalist cotton t-shirt is ideal, but it won't look (or smell) so great after an hour-long workout, especially if your working out, outdoors. That's why, in the past decade, some of our favorite activewear brands like Lululemon, Vuori, and Under Armour have developed breathable fabrics with moisture-wicking and odor-fighting technology that are now practically must-haves for any exercise gear, especially when it comes to making high-quality shirts.

That being said, not all workout tops are created equal. When it comes to finding the right workout fit, make sure it doesn't feel too tight or baggy around your underarms, your shoulders, or across your chest, i.e., the areas you exercise most. We sifted through some of the most popular brands to select the best workout shirts that are as practical as they are fashionable. Here are our top picks for the best men's workout shirts of 2023.

Every holiday has its own traditions and customs. And St. Patrick's Day is no different.

Here are a few ideas on subtly keeping your style intact while protecting against the invasion of pinches the day brings.

We've rounded up our favorite gear picks from our favorite brands for this green-centric holiday. You don't have to go over the top and throw on shamrocks left and right.

It turns out that learning to tie your shoes in Kindergarten may not have been the win you and your parents thought it was. Men’s slip-on shoes are all the rage these days. Call them ugly all you want — they’re easy to slip on when you’re in a rush and cozy to boot.

Maybe you’re a resident sneakerhead, or perhaps you simply don’t feel like splurging on a pair of designer men’s slip-on shoes. You might simply not be able to get passed the “ugly shoe” label of Birkenstocks (or the more budget-friendly dupes). Still, the ease of slip-on shoes is a massive perk.
