Seasonal Staff Picks - Brendan

10/10/2017 9:38 AM

With the season well underway, and plentiful amounts of arrivals, we’ve picked a few of our favourite pieces from the latest arrivals to give you a look into how we’re wearing this season’s ranges…

"I love this time of year. We are brimming with new stock from all corners of the globe and have a great combination of both winter and summer items. For this outfit of chosen some of my absolute favourites of the season. Starting up top I’ve paired a Larose baseball cap with pair with some Moscot Lemtosh sunnies. The Larose baseball caps never go out of style, and can be worn year round, so if you’re into caps these are must. The Lemtosh glasses are Moscots signature and most versatile frame. Made from thick acetate they have a great weight too them and again are something that can be worn year round. My hoodie is from Norse Projects and is in a dope olive colour. Soft to touch, with a great fit and lined hood, I had to grab one of these before they flew out. They’re from Norse Projects FW17 season, but won’t last till our next winter, so don’t sleep on them. The jeans are a staple item here at Up There, but one that we all love. The 105 from orSlow is available in a few different washes and is a great in-between jean, not too tight, but still a smart fit. Rounding things out are our Hiker Boots from Viberg. They didn’t these brown joints up for us and they’re sick. Offset with the red laces is how I like to rock them, just for that bit of pop. Thanks for making them happen Brett!”

Winter is definitely my favourite time of year. This is mainly due to the multitude of options available when getting dressed for the day, a lot of which is dependent on melbourne’s ever changing and often temperamental weather patterns. It gives us a chance to pull out some statement and investment pieces that spend the majority of the year buried at the back of our wardrobes.

I tend to keep things reasonably simple and adopt a less is more approach to what I wear. Classic colours, simple lines and nothing too flamboyant. I’m a sucker for a white button down shirt and I think everyman should have multiple in his repertoire. In this outfit I have opted for an Engineered Garments 19 Century BD Shirt in a White Cotton Oxford, as far as quality and fit goes these are unbeatable. With a slightly looser and elongated hem, they put a nice twist on a classic oxford.

Layered over the top is a Norse Projects Sigfred Marino Knit in Navy. Majority of my wardrobe is some shade of navy or blue so this piece was a no-brainer and it pairs nicely with my new pair of Aprix Suede Low. Aprix are a new brand for the store and I already love them, nothing beats a clean, basic sneaker that can be dressed up or down, perfect for all occasions.

With Melbourne’s weather being as unpredictable as it is, a nice coat that can be layered and keeps you dry is essential. It’s hard to go past Hancock VA when it comes to rainwear, their classic and elegant silhouettes add a touch of class to any outfit. This time around I’ve gone for my Article 56 in the Fawn/Mastic colourway.

I’ve decided to keep it reasonably casual on my bottom half with a much loved pair of OrSlow 105 Standard Denim, 2 Year Wash. Previous to purchasing my first pair of these, I had always struggled to find the perfect pairs of jeans, but I haven’t looked back since. They have a great relaxed cut through the leg and a medium rise in the waist. They are also a great length in the leg, which is a tall order for us vertically challenged folk.
