MENS MARKET DENIM TREND – TOP PICK

Walden Pond

The iconic book “Walden”, by Henry David Thoreau, is a reflection upon simple living in natural surroundings. So too, the Walden Pond gent goes about life in an unassuming manner. While he spends his weekdays in the city, he relishes in his countryside weekend cabin getaway, encircled by autumnal-colored trees, firewood, and greenery. Sitting down on his cabin’s bay window, he looks out to the nearby lake and is reminded of life’s natural beauty. Subtle blends of sophistication and a casual approach to dressing seamlessly mix elements of tailoring with utility gear.

CONTEMPORARY MENS DENIM TREND– TOP PICK

hyper mounntain

Snowboarding down the Black Diamond, Hyper Mountain takes thrill seeking to new heights. Glaciers and alpines excite this fearless fellow as he lives and breathes adventure. His clothing echoes his impulsive nature – distressed finishes are likened to over-worn skiing attire, colored tie-dye washes reference vividly-painted sunset skies, and mud-dipped splatters suggest extreme mountain treks. When he’s in the mood for a different kind of quest, he’ll ski-paraglide off a mountain or kayak down the icy glacial waters. Fear is no obstacle, and no slope is too steep.
