Never Not Working

Rest assured that with the return of A-Ron "The Downtown Don" & Semen Sperms, aNYthing is once again worthy of it's "The Only Brand That Matters" epithet.

Today we recieved these refreshingly simplistic couple of prints; The Any Color Tee & the Tonal Tee, € 35:- (Sek 399:-) which strongly pay hommage to the inspirational Adidas adicolor series, that was so very popular with the NYC downtown scene back in the mid 1980's. Perfect for those indian summer days we have ahead of us!

Well... blue then

Another in store only brand at C this season is Whyred. Whyred was founded by former H&M employees Roland Hjort, Lena Patriksson & Jonas Clason and released their first menswear collection in 1999. Whyred takes their inspiration from the music & art scenes, particularly the 1960's mod scene. The name Whyred is derived from an interview conducted with Hjort's grandfather, expressionist artist Sven X:et Erixson. X:et was asked what his favourite color was. He replied red. Why red? asked the journalist. Well... Blue then, he countered.

From the S/S 2009 collection we picked up these classic Americana pieces:

The Casual & cool plaid Colin shirts (Euro 121:-, Sek 1299:-)

The nice button down Cornet shirt (Euro 84:-, Sek 899:-)

Friendly menswear

British brand Folk was born when designer Cathal McAteer was given the opportunity to create a collection of clothes his friends would wear. Defining the collections based on a hand crafted aestethic rather than keeping up with current trends, Folk provides us with simple staple garments in nice odd colors with subtle quirky details and fantastic fabrics made from superb qualities such as Peruvian Pima cotton and Bolivian Alpaca wool combined with an extra touch like corozo nut buttons and textured tweed stitchings. All done as eviromentally friendly ways as possible. Since Folk is a new brand to us in the Caliroots family and only available instore this season, we thought it would be kind to give you a 20% discount on these must-have pieces!

Competition is none

Stockholm based brand One Man Army is back with the very tight S/A 2009 collection called "Second To None". 1Ma has been around since 2008 and has definetly impressed us with their Bauhaus approach to design were function is just as important (if not more) as form.

The key piece for this collection is a really nice windbreaker that comes is blue, red and black. Great for rainy days like today and the removable hood makes it the ultimate jacket for that fixie rider look.
Hind Windrunner Euro 118:- (Sek 1299:-)

There's also two extra high quality tees (one of them being a collabo we're particularly proud of) with the simplistic graphic profile we're used to see from the brand.The New Cx1MA Euro 40:- (Sek 449:-) Executive Officer XO Euro 40:- (Sek 449:-)

You'll have hard time finding a better crewneck sweatshirt than this. The sturdy super soft cotton fleece and subtle branding makes this a piece that will last a lifetime.
