DISCOVER JUNE 2021’S COOLEST STUFF
THE MOST STYLISH PRODUCTS AND RELEASES THIS MONTH
The sunshine is out, the Euro football is underway, and things are starting to feel normal again. Things are looking up gentlemen. It’s been a really good month of product drops in men’s fashion, tech and grooming, too. So, grab yourself a kombucha and take five minutes to read up on some of the best products I’ve spotted this month.
Frahm Corduroy Worker's Jacket
Corduroy is definitely Tough and Beautiful. It's velvety without being showy, tough without being harsh. The lines have a graphic quality that reflect light in different ways. Cord is far from dull. Frahm have gone to their usual lengths to build a jacket with very exacting detail, and tweaked a classic style, for what is set to become a market leading corduroy jacket. This is a mid to needle weight 'Wale' of 11, meaning it has masculine chunk, but still elegant. There's the ubiquitous (for FRAHM) twin needle stitching, British Courtney's corozo nut buttons abd soft blue Chambray lining in key areas, making this a purely natural, vegan and biodegradable jacket.
Cambridge Satchel Company The Bowls Bag
The Bowls Bag by Cambridge Satchel Company is the latest style to be introduced by the brand. Inspired by a bag discovered at an antiques fair, believed to date back to the 1930s, it immediately stood out as a bag that certainly does not deserve to have been forgotten. Originally intended as a carrier for two wooden bowls, this bag is ideal for modern day life. Gorgeous in its simplicity, the cylindrical shape is unique and eye catching. They have replaced the traditional buckles with magnetic closures whilst maintaining the exact same look. To prevent the bag rolling they've added small feet and a detachable shoulder strap for versatility and functionality.
Carl Friedrik Charging Tray
Carl Friedrik’s new wireless Charging Tray gives you faster charging and less waiting. With more power than previous USB iterations, the charging tray offers a faster wireless charging experience and is extremely useful for holding important compact accessories alongside - loose change, car keys, stationary, and glasses. This portable charging tray is beautifully designed and reliable, and supports wireless charging on all recent iPhone models, wireless charging-enabled Android devices, AirPod cases and other devices with Qi compatibility.
Dedicated FRUITY sustainable swim shorts
Made from recycled PET Bottles, eco brand Dedicated are looking to the future with their new swim shorts. A future in which swimwear helps clean up the oceans by clearing waste and putting this waste back into production. The closest planet similar to Earth is light-years away, and to go there would take us thousands of years. So, maybe we need to start caring for this planet like it’s one in a million. Dedicated is not just any other fashion brand, they're a vehicle for positive change and want to show that fashion can be done differently. In touch with nature, fair and responsible, and without the use of toxic pesticides or chemicals.

As they enhance their portfolio of collaborators, which includes legendary photographers such as Terry O’Neill and Norman Parkinson, Von Unwerth deservedly sits among those names as a world-renowned artist.

Berluti and Danish luxury audio brand Bang & Olufsen collaborate for a limited-edition collection of products, celebrating ‘savoir-faire’ and lifestyle. The collaboration honours the heritage and craftsmanship associated with both ‘Maisons’ and combines some of Bang & Olufsen’s most iconic products with Berluti’s emblematic Venezia leather, patinated by hand to propose six unique pieces.

L’Estrange All Year-Round Linen Collection
Linen is a natural material that has a low environmental footprint and is only used in 1% of all apparel production. It's breathable, it's soft and L’Estrange have blended it with cotton and added stretch in order to produce a perfect fabric that is summery enough and feels great but is wearable year-round. The brand launched a linen collection last year using this fabric and their customers have come back saying they originally bought it for summer but have been wearing it throughout winter due to the comfort. The more we use linen and natural materials the better, and we're confident L’Estrange can change linen's reputation from a summer material into a year-round one.

2020 was the year of DIY. We redefined simple grooming pleasures as moments of self-care and converted our kitchens, bathrooms and living rooms into our very own styling studios. We learnt new skills and experimented with tools and new styles, but now it’s time to take things up a notch. Dial up the performance and the power to clip, trim and tidy like a true professional with the Super-X Metal Series by Babyliss.
