We’ve all been through phases of wearing Big Pony shirts, bright coloured pants, multicoloured loafers, flannel shirts, flip flops and Ray Ban shades. Not to say that any of these wardrobe choices are staid or mundane – I truly believe that if you wear something you can carry well and are comfortable in, that is what really matters. But every once in a while, it’s great to switch up your style and try something new. Take a break from high street shopping, and switch to purchases that’ll last you a lifetime and make your ensemble more interesting – or just add a cool accessory to liven up your outfit.

It is the season of rain and shine, and to keep you going through the changing weather, follow our list of under-the-radar labels that will stand the test of the weather. I, personally, have incorporated these into my wardrobe. DRVV has emerged as a favourite in the fashion scene because of his interesting take on lines and silhouettes. Hermes has always been known for creating perfectly crafted accessories and colognes. And label aka is innovative, fun, and they’ve reinvented PVC in the most fascinating ways.
Get creative, gentlemen. And enjoy the season!
