On Side Street Style we also love to showcase brands that we are currently loving and thought we would share our recent new find in menswear that is Haxby, which mainly focuses on denim but also has some interesting sunglasses, belts and shoes.
Passion, Devotion and Skill Unite
So what makes this brand different? For starters, the creators share a strong passion for and devotion to finely-crafted, limited edition pieces. Michael Dow, a leather craftsman with degrees in Consumer Psychology and Economics, and Timothy White, a leather-smith and silversmith, shared a desire to develop a brand that cohesively combined contemporary style with the great handcrafted traditions of respected artisans. In their endeavors, they have traveled the globe in search of the best designs, materials, and craftsmen to formulate their unique concept. In traveling to London, Italy, Switzerland, and Japan, while still employing local designers in Los Angeles, they have been able to come up with a style all their own that can only be described as unsurpassed.
Introducing the Debut Collection
The debut collection is comprised of a variety of different pieces, each distinctively created and completed with their own unique craftsmanship and design.
- Denim – The denim is sourced from the best denim mills in Japan and Italy. The design team, which is based in Los-Angeles, oversees all aspects of creation to ensure exceptional quality. Paying close attention to detail, each pair of jeans comes with 24-karat gold-plated zippers, buttons, and rivets.
- Belts – The belts are crafted in Switzerland and Italy, which are both regions known for their leatherwork. Each piece is painstakingly forged from a combination of hand-cast precious metals, stainless steel, precision-cut polished sapphire crystals, and, of course, the best leathers and fabrics available.
- Sneakers – The sneakers are suitable for more than just casual wear. Handcrafted in Montegranaro, Italy, with hand-buffed leather, these shoes were designed to serve as a classy statement piece for any outfit. With their sleek, timeless fashion and durable material, you can feel free to dress them up for a night out or wear them during a full day’s work.
- Glasses – Each pair of glasses is handcrafted through a 200-step process, completed in the renowned Masunaga Optical Factory in Fukui, Japan. The eyewear combines classic British designs with precise Japanese craftsmanship, as well as the luxury of either 24-karat yellow or
white gold inlays.
A New Standard for Luxury
With their unique craftsmanship and high-quality materials, you can rest assured that you are receiving a one-of-a-kind, high-quality piece when you purchase an item from this debut line. Even with the bar set high, there are only more high-quality fashion pieces ahead in the future for this brand. With their experience and commitment to excellence, Dow and White seem to have struck gold, which elegantly merges traditional craftsmanship with modern style, setting a new standard for true luxury in men’s apparel.
