Well worn HERO.jpg

With vintage washes and distressed finishes, this spring’s essential wardrobe staples share a ‘lived-in’ appeal

‘Well-Worn’ washed Chuck Taylor hi-top basketball shoes

Available in a vast range of seasonal colours including Butterscotch, Tango Red, Turtledove, Deep Mint and Beluga Grey, this worn-in and washed update on the iconic unisex Chuck Taylor sneaker is part of a softer canvas collection featuring a distressed sole and toe-caps, and dirtied, thinner laces.

‘We Are Replay’ destroyed medium vintage denim jeans

Part of the We Are Replay range, these jeans are crafted with a vintage twist from a D-10 medium, 11oz denim cloth and have undergone an intense regimen of treatments and finishing techniques to achieve the destroyed wash. Using a dirty-coloured yarn and tint throughout the leg of this regular-fit low-crotch trouser, there are also contrast patches and ‘mended’ details.

Steve McQueen ‘Sunblast’ jacket

Sylkoil wax has been enlisted for this A7 motorcycle jacket, which has been permanently treated to have a dried-out, bleached appearance caused by being left in the intense heat of the Mojave Desert. Part of the collaborative capsule range by Barbour that celebrates Steve McQueen’s wardrobe of protective biker gear, the distressed effect has been achieved using wax and sandpaper.
