Here at THEGAYUK, we like to highlight to you new products each month to keep you looking and feeling your best.
With spring just around the corner though, we thought we’d take this one step further. It’s time to clear out the old, bring in the new. We’ve already shown you the best grooming brands for Spring 19 and now it’s the time to get your wardrobe to match up to your fresh-face. Here are our Top 3 Menswear Brands for Spring 19.
1. Plain Bear:
Peckham based indie brand Plain Bear has been a personal favourite of mine, since the first time I saw their stall at Greenwich Market back in 2017. Established in 2013, the brand which is iconic across London for its bold minimalistic prints has gone from strength to strength. From humble market roots in Greenwich and Spitalfields to a defined brand with a state of the art design studio in Peckham, this brand is definitely one to invest some money in. The designs are timeless and will go from season to season. For Spring 19, I would invest in some of their printed T’s and maybe a cheeky jumper. After all, the UK isn’t known for its great weather!

- Phantom (£25.00)
- Police (£25.00)
- Badge Sweater – Navy (£35.00)
2. Centre Front Menswear:
Founded in London and supporting CALM, with 5% of all sales going to the charity. Centre Front Menswear is definitely a brand, that The Gay UK can get behind. By combining the latest trends with classic design, the brand is able to stand out amongst the crowd of season based designers. The brand’s goal is to create wardrobe staples, that although reflecting current trends aren’t going to go out of style in a few months time. This staple mentality, not only leads to the high quality of the fabrics and production methods but also gives the consumer everything they would expect from a top-end designer, for a fraction of the price. It creates a true midpoint in menswear, bridging the gap between the high-street and designer brands. Perfect for those staple pieces, that should be in every man’s wardrobe.

- Wide Leg Trousers with Pleats in Navy (£49.00)
- Denim Jacket in Recycled Denim (£59.00)
- Stripe Shirt with Grandad Collar (£39.00)
3. Pandora Apparel:
Unisex brand Pandora Apparel is pretty remarkable. Created out of a lack of high-quality and sustainably sourced unisex clothing available on the market, Pandora Apparel intended to fill that void and they did so in style. Founded in 2017, the brand does not “believe in gender separation or fast fashion” and wanted to impact the fashion world, without impacting the planet. All designs from Pandora Apparel are taken from digital images, that are pulled apart and re-worked into unisex clothing designs and what this does is create a unique and minimalistic look, that won’t go out of trend. Did we mention, that all their designs are limited edition? So make sure to grab them now, while you can.
