GANT Rugger

Bernard Gant launched his eponymous label in 1949, defining an elegant New England style and attitude, combined with European design influences. The GANT Rugger label takes inspiration from real men, with real style who passionately do things with love, who are trustworthy and true to the American Sportswear Style.

Offering a complete range of apparel for the upcoming season, the collection draws upon the brand’s Ivy League heritage. With a casual take on the classics, GANT Rugger reinvents fashionable clothes with a distinct vintage edge for the modern man who dresses in a young, innovative and casually confident way, with a broken preppy vibe.

Daily Paper

Inspired by the founder’s own African heritage and passion for contemporary fashion, Amsterdam based menswear label Daily Paper launched in 2008, finding an alternative path as a well-respected creator of authentic ready-to-wear garments.

Daily Paper’s focus lies in design that considers authenticity, an emphasis on tailoring and an eclectic use of materials, translating influences of African cultures to create modern design with a unique rugged character, to complement a passion for individuality and personal style. 

Fine detailing, quality and culture contribute towards great design through classic menswear staples that stay true to its signature brand aesthetic. 

Mr. Start

Founded in 2008 by British designer and retailer Philip Start, Mr. Start soon became renowned for specialising in modern tailoring.

With an expanding offering of contemporary casual wear that combines the sleek polish of the brand’s iconic tailoring with the distinct urban ease of casual dressing, the Mr. Start ethos is modern and architectural, with a focus on minimalism and wearability.

Highly regarded for its relaxed approach to expert craftsmanship, Mr. Start provides a fresh tailoring aesthetic – forward looking, each piece is crafted in England from the finest materials to create everyday elegance epitomising Shoreditch luxury.


Founded in Australia in 2009 by British couple Sam Rush and Henry Allum with the aim to produce quality, wearable wardrobe staples – each collection balances contemporary design with considered functionality and a focus on the everyday.

Having both studied at Leeds University, before moving to Melbourne where they launched the label, HANDSOM combines the two designers’ backgrounds in fashion and product design – collaboratively playing with colour, texture and print; along with individual passions for design, film and music – the pillars of the HANDSOM brand.

Quality fabrics and yarns are carefully sourced from mills across the globe, and are the foundation of each range. Since its inception, the brand has evolved to develop a signature look that is understated yet confident, and has steadily gained an international following.

Kommon Universe

International adventurers Kommon Universe share the desire to channel creativity through the evolution of style – creating an organic medium between the progressive thinking of the mind, with tried and trusted wardrobe fits.

Forged in the rainy city of Manchester in the North of England, the label strives to offer a range full of colour and creativity, in stark contrast with its immediate surroundings. With its feet on the ground and head in the clouds, Kommon Universe celebrates originality through products that fuse together functionality with innovation, to offer classic cuts with a contemporary outlook.
