Jason Overbo, owner of celeb-favourite Brooklyn Clothing in Vancouver, BC lists his top Spring Essentials:
1. Jeans: You probably own a dozen pairs of jeans, but have that one FAVORITE go-to pair you absolutely love. They’re SO comfortable and go with everything… no need to change anything here.
2. Tops: Look for bold stripes and all-over patterns… or try cardigans and polos in fresh colors for spring.
3. Boots: Lose the sneakers and stand out from the crowd in a great pair of boots. Not only do they keep feet dry during those annoying random showers, they also look great with jeans.
Other HOT ITEMS for Spring Include:
Light-Weight Jackets & Trench Coats: Ditch the down-filled parka and grab a new spring jacket from G-Star, J.Lindeberg, Drykorn or Jet Lag.
Shorts, Shorts, Shorts: Sunny days are on the horizon and in the meantime many guys are hitting vacation hot spots like Mexico and Hawaii. Now’s the time to get the best selection from plaid, camo, slim-fit, or ¾ surfer style.
Button-Down Shirts: Keep the clean put-together look going, but with a casual twist. Energie, G-Star & Campaign offer short sleeve versions of the classic woven style. Or turn heads in a fitted dress shirt by Italian designer Andrea Palombini or German suit makers Drykorn.
Colors: Light colors have replaced the dark grays and blacks from fall. Blues in all tones, White, Cream, Tan, Khaki, even Pink will take you from spring straight into summer.
V-Necks: Still hot. From tees to cardigans & light-weight sweaters. Layer them up during those rainy days or wear them on their own with, you guessed it, a great pair of jeans.
Accessories: Leather cuffs complement leather boots, and a distinctive Bloodline sterling silver necklace or bracelet takes a look from ordinary to edgy in one second flat.
