Kit Culture: Casual Wear for Active Guys

June 5, 2017

After my Fyre Festival trip fiasco I’ve been keeping myself busy getting everything ready for my next destination: Cuba. I still have a little more outfit planning to do, but before I tell you everything about my adventures in the Caribbean today I want to tell you about Kit Culture, a lifestyle menswear brand that focuses on creating casual wear pieces for those guys who favor a more active lifestyle.

Now, you might be wondering what I mean by “active casual wear”; since it’s all about the athleisure rave these days, Kit Culture is trying to give their own spin to the trend by making clothes that feel comfortable enough to perform physical activities while looking polished at the same time. In these photos I’m wearing their Influencer Stretch Twill Pants and Seven-Day Long Sleeve T-Shirt. For the pants, which were my favorite piece from them, their approach differs in that they were not trying to make a pair of track pants that look decent enough to wear to the office, but instead I would describe them as a pair of chinos that is stretchy and comfortable enough to go around your whole day and switch from work to commute to a social gathering while still looking put together. Their products have a slim and modern fit that hit the perfect balance between casualness and freedom of movement.

If you’re willing to give Kit Culture a try I’d recommend going for a pair of their Stretch Pants to check what their whole vibe is about. As for me, I’m lucky enough to being able to wear whatever I want to the office, but I’m specially excited to give Kit Culture’s apparel a go in my upcoming trips; as most of you might too, I prefer to travel with comfy clothes that will give a little more freedom during flights, so you can be sure that I’ll be rocking these pants during my next visit to the airport. I’ll be my usual comfy self but will look a little more grown up, which is really never a bad thing, right?

Until next time,

Después del fiasco que resultó ser mi viaje al supuesto Fyre Festival he estado ocupado preparando todo para mi próximo destino: Cuba. Todavía tengo algo de planeación que hacer, pero antes de que venga a platicarles todas mis aventuras en la isla hoy quiero hablar sobre Kit Culture, una marca de ropa que busca crear piezas casuales para aquellos que llevan un estilo de vida más activo.

 

Probablemente se pregunten que significa eso de “ropa casual activa”; el trend del athleisure es todo el hit ahorita, y Kit Culture está intentado darle su propio toque haciendo ropa que se sienta lo suficientemente cómoda para realizar actividades físicas pero al mismo tiempo haciendo que se vea un poco más formal. En las fotos del post estoy usando los pantalones Influencer Stretch Twill Pants y una playera Seven-Day Long Sleeve T-Shirt. El pantalón fue la pieza que más me gustó, y más que intentar hacer una pantalonera lo suficientemente decente para llevar a la oficina, el approach de Kit Culture fue hacer unos pantalones semi formales pero con la flexibilidad y comodidad para que los traigas puestos todo el día y en diferentes situaciones, desde el trabajo, durante tu commute e incluso en algún evento social como una cena con amigos o salida a un bar. Todos los productos del sitio web de Kit Culture tienen un corte moderno y ajustado, que busca tener el balance perfecto entre formalidad y libertad de movimiento.

Si están pensando darle una oportunidad a la marca mi recomendación es irse por los pantalones para que vean de qué va toda la personalidad de Kit Culture. En mi caso tengo la fortuna de poder ponerme lo que me dé la gana para ir a trabajar, pero estaré probando mi ropa en mis próximos viajes; como seguramente también lo hacen muchos de ustedes, prefiero utiliza ropa cómoda cuando vuelo, y este pantalón parece tener todo para viajar con libertad y al mismo tiempo dar la finta de que también uso ropa de adulto responsable, lo cual no suena nada mal, ¿verdad?

Hasta la próxima,

DOING CAMO THE RIGHT WAY

August 24, 2013
Camo is a never ending trend. It’s been around for what it seems like forever,  and even though it might disappear from sight from time to time, it always finds its way back into the spotlight. But despite its alleged immortality, you know that just because something is popular it doesn’t mean that everyone loves it, so it shouldn’t be surprising to see this trend get a big deal of hate.
