VibeSquad – Spinning Gears and Making Things
This season has carried a common theme through its early stages: back to the basics. Many of the key and iconic brands in the lifestyle fashion industry have let the construction and the details of their pieces do the talking. Patterns and colours are thrown in the mix, serving only the necessary supporting role. One of the outstanding manufacturers working with this mantra, is a Canadian staple that is fast becoming one of the most essential names in the men’s fashion landscape.
Reigning Champ began their journey to the top with simple mission in mind. That was to produce the best, basic fleece products anywhere on the market. As they continue to progress season over season, it appears they are marching ever closer to that goal. The reason this brand sits in their current position is immediately apparent. All it takes to notice the difference with RC products is to touch one. Shit, take it one step further and throw something on. I can almost promise you it won’t be coming off.
From hoods to joggers, t-shirts to sweat pants, there no gaps in this collection. The best part about Reigning Champ is that any piece from their line can go from the gym to the streets without breaking a sweat. So, as is the case with every spring we have in this part of the country, you are no doubt going to be after some solid and comfortable mid layer must-haves. Do yourself a favor and go with the best. Go with the Reigning Champ.
J Shoes is one of those brands that just seem to naturally keep pace with the most modern of fashion tips. They constantly stay on top of trends, while at the same time maintaining close ties with the archetypal style cues of the past, which will never go out of style. Thanks to this endemic quality, they now find themselves in a place where year in and year out, season after season, their products just seem to work. Weather you are stepping out for groceries, or a night out at your favourite establishment, there simply isn’t a place where J Shoes aren’t a perfect fit.
For the spring and summer of 2014, J Shoes and their creative visuals show us how we can use this versatility in locales other than the workplace, or crowded city setting. In contrast, the British brand opts for a more laid back approach, displaying just how well their footwear works on the beach, at the cottage or just about any other care free environment you may find yourself in this season.
With a wide variety of colours and styles available, you are sure to find a pair of J Shoes this spring that will not only last you throughout all of the warmer months but will serve you well, as the perfect end to a proper head-to-toe look.
Another trend that J Shoes seems to be right on top of is that more and more stylish gents are pairing sockless dress shoes, rather than sneakers or trainers with shorts. This keeps the brand right on point with other fashion-forward manufacturers, whose aim it appears, is to keep things on the path toward clean and basic. So take advantage. Now that the weather is starting to turn and the fear of ruining kicks can begin to subside, find the pair of J Shoes that works for you. They will almost without question, become your footwear weapon of choice this season.
