Grifoni

Synonymous with outstanding quality and sophistication, Mauro Grifoni debuted his namesake label in 1992. Founded on the basis of crafting the ideal menswear silhouette that’s both refined and functional, before launching fully-fledged seasonal collections the brand’s first offerings were a series of perfect button-down shirts. For Spring, we celebrate classic menswear styling with the label’s athletic take on the suit trouser. Featuring an elasticated waist and a perfectly relaxed-yet-tailored fit, pair with a blazer and crisp shirt for a polished finish.

A playful twist on the timeless chino, New York-based 1.61 presents the AS pant. The slim-fit style features a drop-crotch design for a casual and athletic appearance. Distressed for a broken-in aesthetic, each pair is meticulously handcrafted from Japanese and Italian fabric. Give this pair an athletic edge by matching it with sportswear favourites like a bomber jacket and slip-on skate shoes.

American military-inspired label NLST is known for taking classic craftsmanship to new heights. For Spring, it blends utilitarianism and style to present the contoured seam cotton flight shorts. Crafted from luxurious fabrics, the loose-fitted shorts boast well-considered details with stretchy cuffs and waistbands that provide comfort and flexibility. The harem shorts cut from super-soft cotton similarly boast a roomier silhouette. In line with Spring’s ode to the street aesthetic, we love this style paired with a bomber jacket or camouflage print.
