Dad's are notoriously difficult to buy for. Always saying that they don't need anything while at the same time a steady stream of Amazon parcels arriving to the house usually tells a different story. No matter what they say a nice gift that they'll use is always appreciated.
British Summertime is here and that means sunshine, BBQs and beach for sure, but there is also another great pastime that has seen a surge in popularity in recent years in all age brackets and that is camping. Being at one with nature and much needed time away from computer screens and social media - just the stillness of the outdoors sharing moments with the people we love. In terms of what to wear - outdoor wear has often been given a bad wrap for being unstylish and unflattering but those days are long gone.
It's taken its time, but summer is finally here and we couldn't be happier. We're fully stocked with exciting new releases from the brands doing some really cool things in the menswear space right now. We decided to put together this summer edit for you so you can get some ideas of how to step up your style this summer.
The term 'built to last' is thrown around these days, but with American bootmakers Danner - they really mean it. Making boots since 1932, over this long history of craftsmanship they have honed their skills creating boots using only the finest materials and making boots built to be worn.
Clarks have been making quality footwear since 1825, making them one of the longest running shoemakers in the world.

Before making it’s way over 9,000km to the streets of Osaka and Tokyo; let’s retrace our steps. It all began in 1935 with one Mr Gabriel DANTON deciding to purchase shares in his sisters company ‘Manufacture Textile du Centere’ (M.T.C), Mr Danton who since becoming the manager of the company in 1935, swiftly renamed the company to DANTON. He also trademarked the eye-catching red logo, which is still used today. In terms of the clothing being produced, little has changed since the re-branding in 1935. They focused on traditional French workwear favourites such as overalls, work jackets, work trousers and even aprons, almost all of which can still be seen in the brands collections today. The goods were sold as wholesale items from their office and warehouse located at 4o rue Croix des Petits Champs, Paris. Eventually the workshop in Chatre sur Cher closed but DANTON was amendment in keeping production in France; first in Flers in the 90s and Le Lude by the 00’s which perhaps has been part of the brands appeal to workwear style lovers in Japan and all over the world.
