The Leicester-based apparel store hacks from Carhartt WIP, Cav Empt and New Balance in a bid to offer you the best streetwear picks of the week.
Kicking things off is the workwear company-turned-streetwear favourite Carhartt WIP. For their latest drop, gone are the beige utility jackets synonymous with the brand and instead, we see a trio of elevated outing-appropriate garments. To begin with, the Long Sleeve Smile T-Shirt (£50), which stands in a cool black hue, offers a desired streetwear-edge courtesy of its graphic print. And, perfect for those upcoming summer nights is the Joint Pocket T-shirt (£55), which has been washed over with an ocean blue tie-dye effect and dons a human daisy chain motif to promote unity amongst customers. Lastly, in the name of layering, the brand offers its mid-weight Cartograph Jacket (£140), which transcends seasonal wardrobes with its durability and adaptability.
Next up is the Tokyo-based streetwear brand Cav Empt with an array of staple muted offerings. The 1C10E0CE1 T-Shirt (£80) is adorned with technic-inspired graphics and boasts an oversized silhouette and beige colouring, making it effortlessly easy to work into any look. Continuing on with Cav Empt’s dedication to exaggerated cuts is its Cord Design Big Shirt (£210). With adjustable cuffs adding to the piece’s versatility, the devil is in the details as the overdyed corduroy cotton and silicone brand patch allow it to be deemed a beautifully crafted shirt. Completing the Holy Trinity of top-half garments from the brand is the Overdye Planetary Community Heavy Hoody (£210), perfect for ensuring your ‘fit is still radiating streetwear chic on those cooler summer nights.
Should you be looking for a statement piece to call upon for occasions requiring more than a baggy t-shirt and jeans, Fucking Awesome have got you. Whether it’s the brand’s sandy Intarsia Sweater (£110) emblazoned with the brand’s graphics or the School Day 1/4 Zip (£95), comfort and style collide as cotton blends and ultra-soft acrylics are called upon to complement elevated accents. In the name of balance, the brand also offers the classic Perspective Statue T-Shirt (£40) which, while muted in colour and cut, subtly showcases ancient sculpture-inspired graphics born out of a collaboration with Jason Dill. As the brand’s name suggests, their latest drops really are fucking awesome.
New Balance NB 1500 Made in England Desert Scape Sand M1500SDS
Completing any streetwear uniform is a pair of fresh creps, and New Balance’s latest drop is definitely worthy of any outfit you may be planning. Harking on the brand’s beloved NB 1500 silhouette, New Balance’s NB 1500 Made in England Desert Scape Sand M1500SDS (£170) trainers come complete with a ENCAP cushion midsole and durable rubber outsole in a bid to provide longevity and comfort. Injected with a neutral colour palette and white panels, the comfort is met with sandy style, making them a must-have for the summer.
Vans Authentic 44 DX Anaheim Factory
Rounding off the line up is none other than Vans with their Authentic 44 DX Anaheim Factory (£65). Should your ‘fit be lacking flare or vibrancy, Vans’ latest canvas offering is sure to perk up any casual look as cow print clashes with a denim tongue in a truly abstract form.
