Put a Spring in Your Step With Lacoste Quintessential Gent 31 March, 2015 Lacoste Carnaby Evo The clocks have gone forward and the temperature is promising to rise to bring us out of our wintery hibernation which surely means Spring is on its way and for the Street Gentry team Spring means sneakers. So with the sun shining (and the wind blowing!) the team was incredibly excited to get our hands on a pair of fresh sneakers from the new Lacoste collection. Lacoste have reimagined classic tennis court styles in time for the warmer seasons ahead and the Carnaby Evo 2, with its clean lines, subtle branding and expertly crafted leather is a highlight from the collection that nods towards the brands heritage whilst instilling a minimal silhouette that will appeal to the discerning contemporary gent. These sneakers will look as good off the court as on it! The textured leather also means you’ll be better prepared for those pesky April showers, canvas is great but it’s no friend of the rain. Perfect with turned-up denim or chinos, add a pair of bold socks for an extra touch of Spring freshness, at least until it gets warm enough to flash some bare ankle! If you fancy adding some pared-back minimalism to your Spring sneaker collection the Lacoste Carnaby Evo 2’s are available through office.co.uk Bold Socks A bold pair of socks is the perfect way to add a splash of life and interest to any outfit and when coupled with a minimal pair of white sneakers the colour really pops. So why not ditch the grey and navy this Spring and be a bit more adventurous with your socks, roll up those jeans or trousers and let the colour through! Selvedge Denim Style conscious or not, everyone has a regular ol’ pair of jeans in their wardrobe. A pair of selvedge jeans on the other hand can really help to set you apart, especially when worn with a great pair of sneakers. This article from Rawr denim gives a good overview of what selvedge is all about, but generally they are much better made, fray less, last longer and look great with a turn-up. These will last for years and will look great with almost everything, an affordable investment to give your Spring wardrobe some selvedge backbone.
