Layering's a handsome call for fickle Spring weather, but successfully matching two items of clothing is a chore -- with three or four, you might as well try landing a space shuttle, or preparing a Greek salad without a Slap Chop. Dumb things down stylishly, with Shades of Greige
With its new Spring drop, Shades fused a motley (for fashion) crew of influences (streetwear, prep, high design, military) into 65 different pieces, then slapped them with eponymous-ish neutral tones, resulting in around 200 item options -- none of which'll clash regardless of the combos, unless stained with Combos. Tops range from the ultra-light, form-fitting City pocket crewneck, to the casually snug, four-button Peaks henley, to button-downs like the woven Ages funnel-neck w/ mock-turtle-enabling top-collar button (haven't turtles suffered enough?) and the French military-ish, epaulette'd Angled; 2nd layers include the old-man-chic Starks shawl-collared cardigan and the double-breasted, pinstripe-lined Collegiate blazer, which screams "smart" -- 'til paired with the Claremont pleated shorts, when it screams "I'm a British youth!". Meanwhile, jackets are tricked out with functional features, from the poly-cotton shelled Cain trench w/ American military-inspired Velcro neck closure, to the shiny cotton-shelled Windbreaker, sporting zippered cuffs, a hideaway hood, and a sleeve zip pocket perfect for an iPod, or that tiny, iPod-shaped brick of gold, which has never been more valuable.
Because he's running a one-man operation, Shades' owner hasn't even had time to build a website (hence the RevolveClothing link below) -- because designing clothes is tough, but HTML's as tricky as mating plants in zero gravity.
