In the midst of spring, we actually lost count on what to wear and where to shop. Unpredictable weather does that to us! On a mission to find a solution to our problem, we found the best Spring/Summer 2018 menswear items worth investing in.
There’s still one job to do though. You’ll have to decide whether you want to invest your entire budget in a high-end garment of quality or not. A good investment piece will probably be more expensive, but it will be in your archive for multiple seasons. Either way, combining a lavish garment with a high-street bargain is the secret to a timeless wardrobe. Now, let’s have a look at our personal favorite Spring/Summer 2018 menswear garments to invest in.
Calvin Klein Jeans
We all realize that Raf Simons at the creative helm of Calvin Klein is a blessing. Things really took a turn when American royalty braced themselves for the Calvin Klein Jeans SS18 campaign. These cool kids definitely made CK Jeans popular again. It’s leaving us no choice but to adopt this cowboy trend for the next two seasons.
Our all-time favorite must be the western all denim silhouette, with the contrast pocket shirt.
Guys love feeling comfortable in their clothes. That’s actually a top priority and it should be if you ask us. It doesn’t matter which day it is, we’d go for the casual sports combo any day. Since Gosha ended his label, this is probably the last chance we get to shop firsthand Gosha Rubchinskiy garments.
Stripes and Squares
This trend is nothing new, but it has proven to be a timeless one. Throughout the last decades, we can’t even remember seeing a collection lacking stripes or squares. It can be very pricey, depending on which designer label it is. Yet if you take this hustle seriously, you might find an affordable gem to combine your investment piece with.
While searching for stripes and squares à la Fendi and Marni, we came across this Parisian menswear brand named Edition M.R. We instantly fell for their slick aesthetic the moment we entered the Edition M.R website.
Those straight-leg denim trousers
Can we trade in those way-too-tight skinny jeans for some comfy straight-leg denim trousers already? Thank you! These mid-rise jeans we spotted on JW Anderson’s runway is what we live for. What makes them so special is the asymmetric foldover front zip, button fastening and loose-fitting straight legs.
Wrangler has worked their way back into our wardrobes. It’s almost like they never left! What makes their Spring/Summer collection even sexier is the western coolness they added to the mix. Just like their 30-year-old vintage pieces, we believe their SS18 garments will stay in rotation for a minute. Have a look at the collection on their website.
Designer belt bags
In a previous article, we praised the return of the waist bag. Yet here we are again! This time, with a little more precision. When this 90’s menswear trend started we remember it being almost like an event. Nowadays, if you really want to make your belt bag stand out it needs to be unique. Or let it be from Prada. From what we can tell, Prada’s SS18 menswear collection includes a few it-bags worth the investment too.
