Yes, we all love the weekend. And at times there’s nothing more refreshing, than a men's pop up shop. It’s unexpected, it’s unconventional, and extremely personal. For the most part a brand is well a brand, however, when you get the opportunity to meet the people who work within/for the brand. It adds another layer to the brand’s story, it strengthens your connection with the brand.
What I've grown to love about these up-and-coming menswear brands, is the refinement in the details. Nothing overtly showy, often a dash of prep, with functionality being the true selling point. There's nothing more disappointing than flash with no functionality. This partly contributes to my lack of allure for streetwear, it can super flashy with lack of focus or purpose in my opinion.
All in All, I saw some pretty cool-ish, met some ambitious folks. And re-engaged my passion for menswear, I would say it was a solid weekend.
