THE PALLAVILLE COLLECTION

 

Autumn-Winter 2016 sees heritage boot brand Palladium Boots expand its selection of footwear with new fashion silhouettes and we’re digging them!

The Pallaville collection reflects the evolution and innovation of Palladium Boots product line, while remaining true to the brand’s heritage and signature silhouettes. The new athletically-inspired styles feature lightweight canvas uppers and EVA molded outsoles. A wide range of bold and basic colour choices make the Pallaville’s sneaker inspired silhouette the perfect option to complement the athleisure fashion trend.

KICK-ASS SWEATERS

There are days for neutral-color crewnecks, and then there are days when you want a sweater that kicks a little ass. Right? Statement knits fight off the boredom of cold-weather clothes and can make jeans and sneakers look like a proper outfit. They’ll even spruce up your going-out looks – after all who wants to be the guy at the party in a baggy beige button-down!

RUSSELL ATHLETIC IN SA

All American vintage brand Russell Athletic, original founder of the sweatshirt and hoodie over a hundred years ago, have just released their 2016 Winter Collection in SA.

If, like us, you’ve ever wondered about the origin of that mysterious triangular patch of fabric, often but not always ribbed, below the collar of the classic sweatshirt: what it is and why it’s there? Well these days it’s lovingly called the “dorito” but we can thank Benjamin Russell for its origin – designed to give maneuverability to the crew neckline of the then sports uniform sweatshirt.

Next came the hoodie – beloved wardrobe staple of men all over the world today. And with the rise of athleisure in menswear you can take your off-duty kit or office attire to the next level by incorporating any of these luxurious Russell Athletic pieces. We like, a lot.

WHY WE WEAR DENIM

It’s simple really. We wear them for the best possible reason—we want to—and because we’re driven by individual preference, there is no “one way” to wear them. There is no rule saying we have to wear this blue and not that blue—nor any rule we have to wear blue at all.

We have options, so many options and in the following pages we showcase the latest and greatest denim in all its rebellious splendour – brought exclusively to you by iconic denim brand – Diesel.

Grooming: FRAGRANCES | BOSS BOTTLED INTENSE

  • Boss Bottled Intense 50ml EDT, RSP R840 and100ml EDT, RSP R1120
    Available at selected Edgars, Red Square, Truworths and Stuttafords

BOSS BOTTLED GETS INTENSE

17 years ago men everywhere started wearing Boss Bottled. We’re guessing they’re all grown up now and luckily, so has our favourite Boss fragrance.

Brand new in 2015, Boss Bottled INTENSE is a refined, shall we say slightly grown-up, interpretation of the original Boss Bottled of 98.

The fragrance, still luxurious and manly, is less sweet than the original – woodier and spicier, with a higher concentration of scented oils, clove and cinnamon.

If you loved it then, you’ll love it now. And if you haven’t yet tried either – well, let’s just say you’re losing out.
