In this article will take a look at the Avid Attire brand and types of clothing the designers produce. By the end of the piece you should have a good idea about why Avid Attire menswear is such a fast developing streetwear brand. The Look of Avid Attire Menswear In general the Avid Attire menswear look is somewhat understated. The colors are classically urban; iron, khaki, brown and grey. The menswear fits firmly into the active side of the industry. This is the kind of clothing that is worn by street dancers and hip-hop crews. There are lots of panel designs and solid designs, and the branding is generally fairly subtle. The clothing is perfect for the gym, the park, the music festival or a visit to the city center. Urban Hoodies from Avid Attire The urban hoodies from Avid Attire are generally made from a cotton/polyester blend of 70/30. This creates a comfortable fleece fabric that is strong and durable. The designs tend to have the traditional kangaroo pouch and invisible zippers at the sides.  These are staples for your urban wardrobe, and perfect for the gym, roaming around the city or heading out to a casual pub on a cold evening. Urban Vests The vests from Avid Attire are some of the most flamboyant garments in the range. The designers at Avid have gone all out to create some special items with lots of personality. In the summer you are spoil for choice with the urban vests. If you want something to stand out from the crowd then these will do the job. Urban Tees The urban Tees from Avid Attire are generally all one color or panel designs. Some have the Avid brand name in signature across the chest, others have a small branded tab on the left-hand side. These garments are great for layering, but there are also the more sporty items for the gym or the park. Urban Jogging Pants The jogging pants from Avid Attire are very urban in look and design. The biker jogging pants have a corrugated look across the knees, and all the joggers taper to the ankle in a classic urban style. There’s definitely something about the streetwear joggers. Urban Sweatshirts The sweatshirts follow very similar designs to the T-shirts. They are the kind of clothing you will wear again and again when you aren’t sure what to wear. They are made from high-quality materials and are very reasonably priced. Avid Attire is a brand with a growing range of clothing. Take a look at the sales on our site to grab a bargain.

  • Benefits Of European Clothing Manufacturing

    Let’s face it, these days most companies manufacture clothes over in the Far East. Factories over there can produce clothing at incredible prices. If you head over to Africa you will see that the clothing from these Far East manufactures is very different to that which we receive over here in Europe. Factories and companies make clothes for different marketplaces. However, sometimes the quality can fall below par when you are starting out a brand buying from factories a long way away. Avid Attire has chosen to take a different approach, by using European factories to manufacturer their clothing range. In this article we will take a look at how this benefits them, and why it can be a great model for new urban wear clothing brands. Troubleshooting Visits and More Control One of the biggest advantages of having a European based manufacturing process is that you can organize troubleshooting visits if issues occur with manufacture. It is possible to visit with minimal expense and time investment and take a look at where things are falling over. It could be something as simple as a process that is being skipped, or a stitching machine that is not up to the quality level required of the brand. Being able to head over to a manufacturer with a day’s notice means Avid Attire has far more control over the manufacturing process, and is able to ensure that brand standards are maintained. Shorter Urban Wear Times to Market In addition, transit from Europe is a more easy logistical process than from the Far East. Delivery times are shorter, and therefore time to market is reduced. This is a distinct advantage when there are short design/manufacture cycles and regular product releases. It also means that the delivery process is more predictable, and predictability is a vital part of business in the early stages. Supporting Europe through Streetwear Fashion Avid Attire think it is a good thing that they are supporting the European manufacturing community. Britain doesn’t manufacture as much as it used to and that is a shame. However, using European factories means that more revenue is kept within Europe and the overall European Community rather than heading overseas to far-flung locations. Supporting European streetwear fashion communities will only improve the European fashion industry. A rising tide raises all ships. Great for Start Up Fashion Companies As we implied above there are lots of benefits for new start-up fashion companies using manufacturing processes in Europe. Control, timeliness, and the ability to visit the manufacturing location are but a few. It is also possible to have more control over which materials are used and even have specific materials delivered to the manufacturing location with ease. Avid Attire is a new fashion company that has chosen to use manufacturers in Europe. It is clearly a great decision for them, with terrific clothing coming out of their fashion label. More up-and-coming fashion brands would do well to follow their example.

  • Primed For Success – Illusive London Streetwear Clothing

    The team over at Illusive London clothing don’t understand the word ‘failure’. Say it to one of their incredible fashion designers and you’ll be met with a look of confusion, and then a glimpse at an astonishing line-up of menswear designs, soon to hit the shelves. This is because Illusive London hit the track running, with nothing but victory in mind. With a solid work ethic, a hugely experienced urban wear team of staff and an unrivalled passion for the business – Illusive is primed for a future of success. A strong start in the menswear sector Having come from the street wear area of the fashion industry, complete with the experience and knowledge of creating and maintaining a global brand in the form of SikSilk – the minds behind Illusive London were always going to do well. But nobody expected the degree of initial success that they were greeted with. A remarkable reception online, and with the various facets of social media, witnessed the company grasp the attention of customers up and down the country looking for something new in the urban wear industry – this time, in the form of menswear only. With only a small selection of men’s T-shirts and vests, designed and created with the unique Illusive viewpoint in mind, the company managed to bring together 10,000 individual online followers, subscribers and ‘likers’ within their first few months on the streets. Where to next? With a long, and hopefully bright, future clearly ahead of the company – the future is very much in their hands. It seems, now, that the brand name is much more than a simple title, as anyone looking to forecast where the designs, style or direction of Illusive is heading, would be taking shots in the dark. One thing can be declared for certain, however; providing Illusive London continue to work into the future with their dedication to the craft and bring their noticeable passion along with them, they’ll fare well within our modern fashion climate. It seems as though this strong urban menswear outlet will continue to create their own destiny with future ranges of affordable, authentic and high quality street wear (something that the industry is sorely lacking, these days, with many lesser manufacturers flooding the market). For such a new, open and fun-loving fashion company, Illusive have already made big waves in an ocean of larger retailers; it might not be so much that they are primed for success, but rather that success is ready for them.

  • The People Behind Bee Inspired Streetwear

    Most huge fashion businesses, brands and outlets come from a place of financial backing, nepotism and, simply, luck. This can lead to huge high street chains churning out sterilized, passionless streetwear with no real sense of identity or authenticity. It’s this very simple, very human aspect that sets Bee Inspired apart from the rest. Footballers Who Know Fashion Bee Inspired Clothing is the brain child of Mark Corcoran and Steven Robb – two ex-professional football players who decided to swap their promising career within the sport for something a little more personal and meaningful: urban menswear. The two men quickly noticed a huge gap in the market for desirable sportswear that could not only prove to be efficient in training, or when on the field, but also stylish and fashionable enough to wear on the high street, or on a night out; the best of both worlds, all rolled into one urban fashion brand. Drive, Passion and Discipline In order to turn such an optimistic and scary dream into something tangible and achievable, you have to have an incredible degree of determination, drive, passion and discipline – all of which the Bee Inspired boys have in spades. They didn’t simply see pound signs when they looked at the clothes their colleagues would wear, or that their friends would buy from some of the biggest names in urban menswear. They saw that the sector lacked vision, and passion; the same grassroots emotion that’s needed to revitalize a stale market. This same mix of passion and discipline is still a core principle of the Bee Inspired philosophy today, which sees the men going from strength to strength within the menswear industry. Mixed Design Influences for this Urban Clothing The key to standing out in a crowded room is to be the most distinctive man there – this is the very simple, very effective principle at the heart of Bee’s design center. In order to change the current men’s streetwear offerings, you have to mix it up with a diverse range of influences. This results in some of the most unique, daring and successful clothing ranges you’re likely to ever see in contemporary menswear, all with the Bee Inspired promise of quality. The Next Stage for Bee Inspired Urban Menswear It’s difficult for an outsider to look in and predict the next step for Bee Inspired, not because they have nowhere to go, but because the men are seeing such a rapid success and expansion of their business, that it’s hard to see where they won’t go in the future.

  • Our Favourite Tees In The Current Urban Collection From Illusive

    When you think urban menswear, you think Illusive London. When you think Illusive London, you think uniquely styled T-shirts and vest tops; the likes of which you simply can’t find elsewhere. Here at, Thomas Gun, we’ve decided to devote a whole day to ogling the shelves of Illusive’s T-shirt stock and try to sort out what some of our favorites are. Luckily for you, we stock Illusive clothing – so this isn’t just a welcome distraction, on a lunch break, it’s a quick opportunity for some fantastic street wear shopping! The Illusive London Floral Overhead Hoodie Let’s start with something a bit different before we get to the proper tee selections. Yes, a hoodie isn’t technically a shirt, but we’re dealing with British weather here – you can’t expect to buy a T-shirt and nothing else. The Floral Overhead hoodie (in black, especially) is quintessential Illusive design. We have the classic element of a high quality, warm hoodie, combined with the off-kilter Monet-esque floral pattern around the neck and shoulders. You won’t find this anywhere else. Illusive’s Raglan Curved Hem Tee Here we have one of our favorite, more traditional T-shirts from the urban menswear kings. This time, we’re looking for something a little less out there (that means no flowers) and a bit more reigned in. But even with this more classic tee, the Illusive boys and girls can’t help throwing a little flourish in. The shirt is plain, with a horizontal striped pattern; but the stripes draw the eye with their soft, fluffier edges – almost like a tie-dye job. Half Cut Curved Hem Tee with Floral Design We’re back onto the flowers again, you can’t keep us away. If you’ve been following the career and expansion of Illusive London like we have, then you’ll know why we’ve opted for this particular tee. This classic (in the Illusive sense of the word) design, is the very thing that set off Illusive’s first foray into menswear. A plain shirt until upper chest area is met with a bold shift in style – to a complex, dark weave of plant life set against a red background. Eye-catching doesn’t cover it.     These are only three of our favorites, and even then it took us hours to sort through the many we could have chosen. Illusive’s tees are like nobody else’s menswear designs; they take the risks that bigger chains would shy away from, and the result? Some of our favorite shirts on the entire market.
