Armor Lux - Made In France


Founded in 1938

Armor Lux - Made In France

Armor Lux is a clothing company which is almost synonymous with the phrase 'Made In France'.

Founded in 1938 in Quimper, Brittany by Walter Hubacher, the label Armor Lux was originally a line of high end, high-quality underwearmade out of Walter's factory - The Bonneterie d'Armor. Although production was halted during World War II, by 1945 the supply chain was back on and Armor Lox was on its way the greatness.


You can't go wrong with stripes and plain silhouettes - they're timeless and they go with anything, whether you're dressing up or down. Perhaps the style that Armor Lux are best known for is the Breton stripe. Modelled on the Marinière - an old French Navy uniform attire which was a long sleeved garment with 21 white and blue stripes - the Breton stripe is so named due to the high number of sailors from Brittany.

Still made in Quimper to this day, Armor Lux have quality locked down!

Arc'teryx Super Light

Arc'teryx Super Light

Renown for their state-of-the-art and innovative outerwear designs, Canada's Arc'teryx was founded in North Vancouver in 1989 and they've been developing some of the industry's best jackets ever since, created for all walks of life in the great outdoors, from climbing and hiking to snowboarding, skiing, and they even created a special range for the armed forced - LEAF.


Sometimes a heavy duty jacket can cause more problems that in solves, and so we've selected Arc'teryx's SL, which stands for Super Light, to be our main range. The idea behind the collection is to provide the wearer with exceptionally lightweight performance which can be compressed and thrown into your bumbag. I'm assuming everyone has a bumbag.

These minimal jackets don't skip out on the tech or quality, either. The Atom uses a weather-resistant yet highly breathable Tyono shell, whilst the Beta uses a shell made from GORE-TEX for complete protection from the elements.

Napapijri Geographic

Doing any festivals this summer? Going hiking in the Alps instead? Might just be chilling out in the city. If you don't spot any Napapijri we owe you a tenner (terms may apply and we'll give you it in 1p coins).


Founded in 1987, Napapijri is a premium Italian clothing company which specializes in outerwear, casual sportswear and alpine attire. It was founded and is still headquartered to this day in the small city of Aosta, situated close to the Italian entrance of the Mont Blanc Tunnel. So, you might expect them to make all of their clothing in a traditionally designer Italian style, but they don't. In recent years Napapijri have been branching out into a fresh line of mint streetwear, all based on their Geographic logo.

The Rainforest jacket has become a staple in fashionable outerwear, and can be seen donned all over British festivals - because weather, am I right? Their simple tees looks the part and they've used their sportswear knowhow to create some loopbacked jogger pants and shorts as well, should man need to feel cozy

Summer Suede from Clarks Originals' "Color Pack"

Summer Suede from Clarks Originals' "Color Pack"

A strong player in the ranks of Clarks since the 1970s, the Weaver is a much loved silhouette which perfectly blends the two styles of the Wallabee boot and a classic moccasin. A strong construction includes some unique whip stitching around the sides and an upper made from water-resistant Scotchguard suede which has been sourced from the renown Charles F Stead tannery in England. The water resistance is a nice touch from Clarks, though with a summer drop and shoes this snazzy you'd hope the protection would end up being overkill - rain is a killjoy. They also sit upon the iconic Crepe sole for a nice comfy finish.


This "Color Pack", or "Colour" if you want to stay true to Blighty , comes from the back of Clarks' recent collaboration with Supreme which also featured some bright variations of the Weaver. Though these versions aren't £1000 on Depop worthy, they're pretty sick and they make a sweet partner for summer attire, whether that be a pair of pants, jeans, shorts or short shorts. Or short short shorts.
