Fitted is a new weekly series starting up here on the Attitude Inc. Blog, in which we will showcase products from our website (which can also be found in our Ipswich and/or Colchester stores) via a complete outfit. We’ve had an almost unmanageable amount of awesome new arrivals recently, so this week we’re going to put something together from our recent products!
Starting with the heavier layers, we have the Raised By Wolves x Black Sabbath Master of Reality Coach Jacket in Black, and the Polar Skate Co. Default Pullover Hoodie in Dark Prune. The former has been very popular this season, and it’s easy to see why. The flexible Dintex exterior, aided by a DWR coating, provides great resistance against both the wind and the rain, two unfortunate staples of the British winter. Comfort isn’t lost at all, thanks to the soft mesh lining that runs throughout the jacket which also keeps weight to a minimum, and style is taken care of by the vinyl applique Black Sabbath text on the chest in a vivid purple/pink colour. While it is a great jacket, it may not quite be enough to protect you against the cold, cue the Polar hoodie. A tried and tested method of maximising style and functionality is layering a coach jacket with a hoodie, letting you incorporate more colour into your outfit and adding a hood to keep your head warm and dry. The rich purple colour of the Polar hoodie complements the Black Sabbath text on the chest of the coach jacket perfectly, providing a very cohesive style. You won’t have to worry about freedom of movement being restricted thanks to the hoodie’s raglan sleeve design, and the ribbed cuffs at the waist and wrist streamline the hoodie to perfection, providing a snug fit that will let the jacket slide nicely over and around it. Finally, the hood can be adjusted via a drawstring, so you can tie it tight if you don’t like the drawstrings flapping around, or leave it be to make it wider and cosier.
Moving downwards, bottoms are an afterthought for many when piecing together an outfit, but in reality they can be quite make or break. The Polar Skate Co. 90s’s Jeans in Black would be the perfect addition to this outfit, thanks to their stonewashed black colour which has a real vintage feel to it. The top half of the outfit is given a very modern feel by the Polar hoodie, but the coach jacket adds a slightly more retro element thanks to classic features like the collar design and snap closure front, and the Polar 90’s jeans will contribute to the old-school feel of the outfit perfectly. A 100% cotton construction and 90’s-style wide cut means the jeans will be very durable, perfect if you’re going to skate in them, and will match the proportions of the top half of the outfit which is likely to be quite bulky. Intricate features like the embroidered No Comply logo on the pocket and the custom Stroke Logo button fly round off the jeans perfectly, providing the subtle branding that is so in tune with this outfit. All that is left is footwear!
The outfit has a real skateboarding feel to it, with the vintage image of wide and washed trousers and a classic coach jacket being arguably THE skateboarding look of the moment, and it makes sense to cap off such an outfit with a shoe based on one of the most iconic shoes of all time. The Converse CONS CTAS Low Pro takes clear inspiration from the Chuck Taylor All Star, Converse’s timeless design that oozes retro class. A full black suede upper contrasts heavily against the midsole and stitching that runs all through the upper, to create a monochromatic colourway that will complement any outfit very nicely. A Lunarlon sockliner provides unreal amounts of cushioning and responsiveness, and the vulcanized rubber outsole offers great boardfeel and also grip, thanks to an aggressive traction pattern. The versatility of the shoe is fantastic, you can cuff your jeans or let them stack on top of the shoe and both look absolutely effortless. If you’re going to do the former, you might want to check out some of the awesome socks we’ve got!
A very clean and accessible outfit overall, this is one that can be carried off well by absolutely anyone. You can shop all the pictured items via our website by clicking on their respective image above, or by visiting us in our Colchester and Ipswich stores!
