Laid back confidence and approachable correctness best describe ex-Hollywood agent Scott Sternberg’s vintage-inspired brand, Band of Outsiders. The Californian’s new range holds designs which bring back memories of the incomparable style that was the Ivy League, most popular in the decade from 1955-1965, off the east coast of America.
The clothing designs attracted a series of big name, west coast, Hollywood actors including Dustin Hoffman, Steve McQueen, Paul Newman and Woody Allen, to name but a few. The new range holds 1960s vibes – cool, appealing and easy going – as well as possessing a new, contemporary edge that will make this collection hard to beat.
With other twenty four different items, boasting a complete collage of colours, trims and designs, Band of Outsiders is appealing and can tempt a variety of modern men.
The brand offers four different styles of shirts in its collection, with each garment providing a different style and character completely. The preppy, fitted Oxford Shirt and the Paisley Short Sleeve Shirt (complete with their flamboyant, tropical colours) are best suited with slim black chinos or jeans. The pair of checked Gingham shirts are cut for a looser, casual fit that is typical of LA day wear. All of the four shirts have been crafted in Italy, using soft premium cotton and vintage white buttons.
The smartest of the attire, and a favourite of mine, is the three button blazer. This jacket has Steve McQueen’s name written all over it. It features a classic, all-American cut, with heavy military influences. The retro 60s feel of this jacket perfectly represents the innovative and distinctive designs Band of Outsiders prides itself on.
When it comes to footwear – boat shoes to be precise – Sperry Topsider instantly springs to mind. Band of Outsiders, smartly teamed up with the footwear specialists to create a fine looking collaboration called: Band of Outsiders X Sperry 3-Eye Boat Shoe’s. Customers will feel spoiled with five different patterns and colours to choose from.
The entire range is diverse, varied and leaves you wanting more. Head over to Oki-Ni.com for more info.
