There is nothing sexier and bolder than men who can dress themselves right. Unfortunately, we don’t find many men like that, and that’s when we need to come to the rescue, ladies. Lucky for you, I found this shop that can save us from the headache. Everything you need to create the man of your dreams are available in this sassy and classy shop. Mind you, I’ve always thought that men in denim are hot. Haxby, a fashion collective based in Los Angeles brings you high-end menswear. Drawing on inspiration from Savile Row tailoring, Haxby pairs the current “understated” look with custom made artisanal tradition. The result is a return to the true idea of luxury: high quality materials, stylish designs, and the perfect fit with each item of this limited-edition first collection.
The First Line
Haxby’s initial product line includes high-class casual denim, footwear, and accessories that complement one another in endless combinations. Truly impressive menswear requires not only distinctive design, but meticulously chosen materials as well. The impeccable quality of each product line, which the company proudly details on its company website, makes any pick a smart purchase. Here are some of the highlights.
Denim: The denim mills in Italy and Japan, home to the best denim in the world, provide the materials for these jeans. The rivets, buttons, and zippers are finished with 24-karat gold plating. The L.A.-based design team personally oversees the sewing and cutting of each pair of jeans, which is a real testament to the attention they put into their product.
Eyewear: Another great example of Haxby’s high level of attention is in their eyewear, which takes 200 steps to manually create. Crafted at the Masunaga Optical factory in Fukui, Japan, these glasses feature either 24-karat yellow or white gold inlay. The combination of precision craftsmanship and iconic British style put these sunglasses in the forefront of this summer’s hot picks.
Sneakers: These cordovan leather sneakers rise above the standards of common casualwear and make a real statement. Each piece in this summer line has been handcrafted and buffed in Montegranaro, Italy, home of the world’s most luxurious and stylish shoes for men. The timeless design of Haxby paired with Italian leather craftsmanship also makes for an extremely lasting shoe in style, durability, and comfort.
Belts: Each belt in this debut collection is unquestionably unique. Artisanal production in Switzerland and Italy combines polished sapphire crystal, hand-cast precious metals, and stainless steel for these belts. The highest quality leathers and fabrics are standard as well, rounding out a collection of extremely impressive menswear.
Michael Dow and Timothy White are the creators of Haxby, and their passion for craftsmanship, design, and quality is evident not only in their 10-year friendship, but in their brand as well. They traveled across the planet for over two years to find the exact materials, styles, and craftsmen for their products. Their goal was to create a product that would be not only successful, but enviable in its look.
The success of this excursion is evident in the initial product line, and it is of little surprise, considering how both Dow and White are trained in leather crafting. When one understands how to find the details that speak to a material’s quality, it takes time to find the absolute best. There is no question that Dow and White have done just that for this first release.
