Trés Bien Shop

We’ve ..

Trés Bien Shop

Trés Bien Shop

said it before and we’ll say it again, Trés Bien Shop is a standout, and a very cool store based out of Sweden. Not to mention, they’ve also got an online component as well as a must read blog. It’s a place to go for the guy who wants to develop a more refined style, and for the girl who wants to steal her boyfriends clothes. They offer brands and designers like Our Legacy, Beams Plus, Yuketen, Mark McNairy and countless more. And if I had the time, I could spend a lot of it here just reading about the designers they feature. Since this is the biggest shopping weekend of the year, no better place to start then here.

You Must Create

Fairly new..

Hunting Knit

Hunting Knit

to You Must Create and am a total fan of the London brand.  YMC was founded in 1995 and they’re all about making solid pieces that are “beautifully tailored, ingeniously understated and full of hidden details”.  With the Hunting Knit, Camouflage Trousers, Norweigan Crew, Japanese Raw Selvedge Denim, and so many other great staples, it’s tough to not callout the entire collection. Perfect pieces that are not going to go out of style next week. Subtle statements; worth getting YMC on your radar.

Wednesday Shirt Dress

Wednesday Shirt Dress

from Dear Fieldbinder fall/winter 2011. The DF HouseLabel is a small collection of seasonless clothes. These versatile pieces can be layered in the colder months, and I also love that they’re perfect for day or night. Some of the styles are made from vintage fabric remnants, and the entire line is produced in NYC. But, no need to stop at just the Dear Fieldbinder label, peruse the entire assortment of other designers at this fantastic shop!

Frosty Tap Shorts

Nothing wrong..

Frosty Tap Shorts, $52

Frosty Tap Shorts, $52

with glamming it up every now and then. As both me and Rene have said, we’re more of the jeans and tees type, but when the time is right (or when you’re just in the mood to switch things up), it’s always fun to throw on a piece that makes a real statement. These retro style sequin shorts from Need Supply do just that. Throw them on with a pair of heels or take it down a notch with a casual sweatshirt. Either way, a great way to rock a trend without going totally overboard and just in time for the holiday parties .Why not?
