Okay, so this is our first Weekend Look feature and we thought who better to kick it off with than with a man who is all about the complete look, designer Craig Port. And since its spring in South Africa, why not set the tone for this season by rocking out with four looks from PORT’s Summer Rock God Collection, available at YDE stores.
Craig Port recently released the campaign for his Summer Rock God Collection and what immediately struck us is its presentation of four complete and wearable looks – and what’s even more striking is that you can rock out through your weekend entirely in the label without looking like a walking billboard for the brand.
Own Friday night out with this casual-formal 3-piece club tux including blazer (at R850), waistcoat (at R320) and trousers (at R399).
In the spirit of all things spring and festive, we highly recommend committing some time in your Saturday to sit back, relax and enjoy the company of family and friends, food and sun. And whether you recoup at the beach, poolside or park, you can’t go wrong with PORT’s sailor inspired sweat top (at R399) and floral paradise shorts (at R399).
For those of us who are lucky enough to either live in a seaside city or can afford that weekend trip to one, then, gents, you can bring sexy back with a bang with PORT’s micro swim shorts or the provocative formfitting speedo.
If Saturday’s your night, then the broody bad boy rocker look will have everyone eating out of your hand. Alternative to the rocker look – zip knit jacket (at R550) and v-neck t-shirt (at R299) -featured on the campaign poster, you can don the high flyer jacket (above) with your favourite pair of jeans or slim fit pants.
Of course, there’s nothing as deplorable as a man in unseemly underwear: the most important garment you wear is underwear and finding a style and aesthetic that is specifically suitable for you is the best thing you can do. PORT has you covered at R99 per pair.
One of the things we love about De Waterkant (Cape Town) and Melville (Johannesburg) is the vibrant café culture, and Sundays are an absolute joy to spend one’s day in these vibrant and eclectic districts. If you’re dropping by these areas, go in the PORT upon the wings tee (at R399), belt (at R199) and high sea jacket.
Craig Port garments featured in our maiden Weekend Look are available at YDE stores around South Africa.
