Living in warm and humid Singapore, I often feel that the way most fashion brands are broken into the Spring/Summer and Autumn/Winter collection makes little sense for us, and that applies to so many tropical countries and cities along the the equatorial region. And while many akin tropical (or summer) dressing to dressing down and going super casual, Orlebar Brown has taken it to a different level and create a brand of clothes that really speaks to us.
Although based in London, Orlebar Brown is ironically made for a sunny lifestyle such as that of the European Rivieras, the Miami beach or a tropical resort. Taking the British approach to details and tailoring and applying that to men’s swim shorts – the brand prefer to call it ‘shorts you can swim in’ – and and a range of casual ready-to-wear, the brand has refined and brought luxe factor into casual beach wear.
This season, the key pieces to check out are the Orlebar Brown tailored swim shorts, available in different cuts and in multiple colors and prints. The BULLDOG range (below, top row) is one of it’s a best seller, and equally popular is the SETTER range (below, bottom row) that is inspired by the 1950s classic swim shorts.
The brand also carries a full ready-to-wear collection of classic essentials for a man’s summer wardrobe, made with great attention to quality and details.
