Quiksilver The Original Boardshort swimwear surfQuiksilver is celebrating its most iconic range of boardshorts by bringing back the most loved and iconic design from the early days of the brand, The Original. This bold boardshort set, originally famed for its iconic checkered side panel, will be available from this month and will never go out of stock.

Born in 1969, The Original was the first boardshort to blend style with performance to create something that represented the raw, progressive energy of surfing.

Last year, Quiksilver announced that 100% of the brand’s boardshort range is now made from recycled water bottles. Quiksilver has focused on using recycled water bottles since the breakthrough of this fabric technology and to date has reused over 250 million bottles that would otherwise have gone into landfill. As well as recycled fabrics, the shorts are built with technology to service the needs of surfers, and the everyday wearer at the beach or pool.

New for this year, Quiksilver’s boardshorts will also feature the new 'Surf Silk' and 'Highlite' fabric for comfort, durability and performance which use 100% recycled nylon from fishing buoys.

The Original boardshorts are available as a boardshort and a volley short, and priced from £45-£60

#Iconicforareason 

TheChicGeek says, "While the fashion in men's swimwear has been getting smaller and smaller, the boardshort could be ripe for a comeback. Just be careful if you're short..."

TheChicGeek says, “I’ve been a fan of Good News since I first saw them at London Fashion Week in 2017 - Read more here - Linking up with the giant H&M should be not just great for their exposure but also their bank balance. H&M has never been that great in the shoe department, so this is a massive improvement, looking at the pics, and the prices are good too. I’m always open to a fresh twist on the classic plimsoll.”

luxury slider brand Playts made in Italy men's footwearIntroducing the world’s first brand to niche in luxury sliders, Playts. ‘Super high-quality Italian made footwear”, that is said to be not only unique and stylish, but also gives customers the comfort they desire.
 
The name is i
nspired by cockney rhyming slang, plates of meat (feet), and the logo is a rift on the letter ‘P’ which is the silhouette of a basic slider standing on its heel.
 
Playts use a special padded material in the upper of the slide and a contoured footbed to avoid blisters (one of the biggest issues with sliders) which gives the consumer a luxury slider that is not only aesthetically pleasing but wearable from day one. Ensuring that there are no faults at all, Playts have undertaken extensive research to find the number one slider manufacture which also enabled them to design their sliders of the highest of quality and durability alongside industry experts, allowing them to implement a chunky monogramed sole with their custom archways, to elevate the wearer but save weight.

To connect with their customers on a personal level, Playts have created an authentication service powered by Certilogo, to connect their customers from the start in one of the most engaging ways as possible. As soon as customers receive their Playts, they get their own Certilogo card and scan the hologram to begin their complimentary authentication and digital experience.

luxury slider brand Playts made in Italy men's footwear

With the brand, Certilogo will allow Playts customers to stay up to date with their initiatives, learn more about the brand, receive special offers, have early access to new collections, products and always be the first to know what is coming next.
 
Available in sizes 7-12 in 8 different colour-ways. Each colourway limited to 1000. Playts are priced at £295 and will be available to purchase online at theplayts.com from May 2021.

luxury slider brand Playts made in Italy men's footwear

TheChicGeek says, “I’m not sure how many people really care about the quality or find sliders uncomfortable. It’s a bit like buying flip-flops for life, they’re in their nature disposable and a yearly, box-fresh pre-holiday/summer buy. Just when did you have to pay nearly £300 for a decent pair? Be interesting to see if these live up to the price tag when they come out.”

Mr. SlowBoy Illustrates Sebago SS21

Ivy League Mr Slowboy SebagoFei Wang, aka Mr. SlowBoy, an artist known for his menswear drawings has collaborated with Sebago to launch their new collection.

“I’m a slow person; slow in almost everything. Among my friends I’m always the last one to get the joke. I surely like slow fashion too, in other words, classic designs”, he says.

The 40-yr-old Chinese artist – born in Beijing and based in London since 2015 – has a passion for the American Ivy League look.  The 8 illustrated  drawings by Mr. Slowboy portray the Sebago man in his Citysides, Docksides and Campsides styles.

A universe of style starting at the Portland Yacht Club, with its shoes by the same name (100% Ripstop cotton jacket, short sleeve shirt, elegant but sturdy white trousers, boat bag); passing through the Harvard campus (red sweater, button down shirt, beige straight leg trousers, inspired by American military uniforms, and the most classic moccasins); going cycling in the city streets (in a blue polo shirt, three-button summer jacket, pinstripe chinos and moccasins with a metal fast); and finally embracing the great outdoors of the American parks, mountains and lakes, sporting a T- shirt, minimal men’s shorts and a short sleeve weekend shirt.
