Saturdays Surf NYC: S/S 201220/04/2012
Saturdays Surf, NYC is a brand that I enjoy browsing quite a bit. They focus on surfing + life in NYC, and what results is a wonderful offering of thoughtful, well-made basics. The S/S 2012 lookbook showcases how casual weekend dressing can be so effortless and very well done. Using pieces that should be familiar to most guys (sweats, chino shorts, etc), even if you don’t own these specific items, the looks are easy enough to replicate. The Jailbreak Board Shorts (pictured left, link) comes in a variety of colors; personally, I would have preferred the gray or the navy version, but the black/white combo provides an eye-catching statement. The Bowery Crewneck Sweatshirt (pictured right, link) is a nice shade of maroon – I’m always an advocate for jewel tones – and brightens the entire ensemble; a small but key detail. Important to note that the success of these looks lie in the fit. Although these might be sweats and such, these are not baggy sweats or saggy chinos. No, the proper fit translates to sharp and put together looks, even on the weekends.
