It has been said that “clothes make the man”. There is unquestionably a shred of truth in that statement. Maybe not for all those who read this blog out yonder but I think, I hope most men today understand the compelling connection between what we wear on our backs and how it relates to our lifestyle. Let’s be clear we’re talking about casual dressing off the clock – weekends, vacations and carefree moments.
When I first launched this web site I blogged about how many of us have looked around while standing at a bar to order a drink and we take in the surrounding blokes and how they are dressed. Are they dressed better than us – worse than us? I mean what guy wants to look dorky today? Even senior citizens aka baby boomers still give a shit – well most of us.
Dressing is definitely different today. It’s not just about wearing a shirt, sweater or pant – it’s how we put it all together. My often used expression (about the look) “it’s not what you wear but how you wear it”. Think about that for a moment. It’s not about about putting the separate pieces on your bodies and walking out the door – it’s about taking those 3 items and putting your personal spin on the look. I have seen guys make a white tee shirt look like a piece of art. Not because of the tee shirt but because of the body stance, the hair, the attitude. They transform something as simple as a white tee into art.
Case in point, on it’s own this Relwen heather grey dua this crewneck looks very basic but the possibilities of creating different looks are endless. What we feature are items that are timeless, classic, lasting and allow you to explore your creative side.
This spring / summer season we’ve focused on acquiring brands that bring the best original design and influence to your lives.These brands are clearly under the radar and have what I call a cult following. They are original in design, detail, quality,value and philosophy.There is nothing more rewarding for us than discovering these brands and sharing them with you.
To date, since we launched the TRB in December of 2015 we continue our commitment to follow our path and that is to bring you exceptional product that sets you apart from the crowd. A product that you cherish and allows you to dress like you mean it.
We are available for one on one conversations, emails or texts about what does or doesn’t work for you or general wardrobing tips? No charge blokes!
