While a grown man might occasionally sport funky graphic tees, colorblocked track jackets, or billowing silken capes, the foundation of any wardrobe should be toned-down, high-quality basics. Get fundamental, with Folk Clothing.
Launched in the UK in '05, Folk quickly established itself with its subdued classiness, its reluctance to chase trends, and a name that, when mumbled, suggests you're not interested in wearing anything at all. For comfortable durability, they employ only the finest merino wool, pima cotton, and angora -- wool from rabbits whose bulky fur makes their heads almost invisible, and traps telltale crumbs that call into question just who Trix are for. The spring line offers an array of long- and short-sleeved buttondowns, the Loose-Fit Trousers keep it simple in navy and grey, while sweaters range from v-necks w/ subtle accent stitching on the shoulder, to the half-button-front Nearly Cardigan -- for guys who are this close to hosting a beloved PBS children's show.
Folk also crafts shoes, moccasins, and boots under the sub-brand Shofolk. The highlight's the suede Armstrong: a mid-top desert boot, it'll have you looking like a grown man, even if the crest on your cape says Justice Boy.
