Luxury leisurewear is having a moment, following on from the sports luxe looks that take us from the school run to our workouts and to brunch with the ladies afterwards in effortless style. True Religion are eminent for quality designer denim with a cheeky Buddha smile, but when you’re settling down for a Sunday evening of nibbles and Netflix, relaxed cuts and soft cotton jersey is the order of the day.

HOW TO LOOK AFTER YOUR DENIM

As official stockists of specialist denim brands including True Religion and Jacob Cohen, it’s safe to say that we have this thing with denim.

Jeffrey Lubell, CEO of True Religion, once said “True religion meant there’s really only one religion in the world. That’s people, and we all wear jeans”

Jeans are the fashion’s common denominator. We all appreciate a great pair and we all understand how important great quality jeans are to our wardrobes. But do you know how to look after yours? Designer denim comes at a price but follow these simple denim care tips and your new jeans will last you a lifetime.

TO WASH OR NOT TO WASH?

It’s the age-old denim dilemma; to wash or not to wash? When you have paid good money for the perfect fade, it makes no sense to lose it all in the first few washes and find yourself left with a rather 80’s acid wash. On the other hand, a great pair of jeans will be wasted on you if you smell like you have shunned showers for the last week. Advice is conflicting but according to the denim experts, your jeans should be washer bound after about ten wears. Any less and you risk losing the unique character jeans develop over those all-important first few wears (known as whiskering and honeycombing).

Jeans have been around since the 19th century and we’re confident in saying that the workers wearing them at the peak of the Gold Rush weren’t putting them on a spin cycle every few days. Heavy denim like that used by True Religion and Jacob Cohen is built to last; the delicate part is the wash. Harsh detergents can wash out that indigo tint, so look for one that promises to care for your colours and which will work on a cold-water wash, something else that will keep that colour.

When it comes to drying your denim, the tumble dryer is enemy number one. Even a quick spin in the dryer will drain the colour from your jeans quick enough to see the colour drain from your face when you take them out. It’ll affect their shape too. Hang up your jeans and allow them to air dry to preserve their fit and fade. Take them off the hanger once dry and store folded and out of direct sunlight.

10 OF THE BEST GRAPHIC T-SHIRTS FOR SUMMER

Looking good isn’t just about buying into the latest trends. Basics do exactly what they say on the tin, serving us well when inspiration is lacking and we need a trusty failsafe that we can throw on and go in five minutes flat. Take the T-shirt, for example. Few other wardrobe items are quite so easy to wear and you can never have too many good quality cotton tees in your off-duty arsenal.  

When the weather warms up and the jackets are finally cast aside, the cotton tee comes into its own. And so, we wanted to pay homage to the throw-on-and-go item that never lets us down, even when time is short and inspiration is low.

Here are ten of our favourite graphic T-shirts for the new season from the likes of Hugo Boss, Armani Jeans and True Religion. They are all available in store now at Robinsons. Which are on your wish list?     

MUST HAVE: TRUE RELIGION ZIP UP SULFUR HOODIE

True Religion’s Zip Up Sulfur Hoodie is one of our must haves.

Turn your back on basic black casuals, opting for something with a little more attitude instead. True Religion are synonymous with fearless style and the Sulfur Hoodie has all the earmarks of another rock and roll classic. It’s a clear case of business in the front, party in the back, thanks to an embroidered and embellished skull motif. Style yours with denim and a hefty side of that True Religion signature swagger.
