Let's Hear it for the Boy

All hail the What Sarah did…man cave- a space of sanctuary that can be found within the treasure trove we call HQ. It’s robust and its masculine and its full of super cool brands that are just waiting for you fellas. Tucked away from the mania (we wouldn’t have it any other way) of girldom, guys can seek solace in their own corner of coolness…

Let us introduce you to Kapten and Son-supreme quality watches for him and her with interchangeable straps to match your personality. We just love the variety of this brand and the freedom to switch your strap with your mood. With leather, metal, nylon or canvas collections, there’s a style to suit every wrist. Each watch is adorned with the signature Kapten anchor emblem and is a nod to the German brand’s deep-rooted belief that a timepiece is an expression of your individuality. (Prices £109-£159)

This week alone is case in point that everyone needs a reliable Rains. The humble pac-a-mac has gone high end with this luxe brand and they don’t stop there…There’s the Bucket hat (£25), the distinctive accessory of the 90s that has experienced a style renaissance of late. Rains have embraced the revival with their classic design, which is made in their recognizable lightweight fabric. Wear with confidence and channel your inner LL Cool J.

For a backpack you can take to the boardroom, look no further than this sleek version from Rains (£75). Featuring a sizeable laptop pocket with enough room for all your other essentials, this beast is 100% water and wind proof and will defy even the most treacherous of commutes.

 The Rains Weekend bag (£60) makes for the perfect weekender and includes an adjustable shoulder strap. Clever design features mean you can expand or compress the overall size. A bag that means business. For a more relaxed travel bag that wouldn’t look out of place in the nautical hot spot of St Tropez, go for the Becksöndergaard overnight surf bag (£49).
In the words of Basil and Ford “Whatever you deem to be ‘cool’ do more of it and less sitting around on your backsides moaning about not doing cool shit”. Invest in this simple typographic print to remind you…We’ve got a great range in store (Framed £15-£28, unframed £10-£19)

It’s the ultimate poolside footwear choice and no it’s got nothing to do with a mini hamburger…enter the slider. With a moulded foot bed and slip on style this star print design from the brand Slydes (£10) brings you fun and comfort in one hit.

Man drawer? How about a man pouch by Lola and Gilbert (£13). This would be a great Father’s Day gift for a new dad- it fits a nappy, mini wipes and trusted mini sudocreme for a more masculine on the go nappy change.

What would be a man cave be without a little pirate treasure? Created by two friends, with ‘a passion for style and a few drinks in Leigh-On-Sea’, Hornigold Threads is the epitome of cool simplicity.  The classic tee (£20) is where this brand began and they haven’t lost sight of their foundation as they continue to produce variations of their dependable statement staple.

WSd has just introduced a fab newbie to HQ in the form of Zeal. This cool new brand is all about handmade homeware, interiors and stationary, made with great quality, and ethically sourced materials all screen-printed by hand. Update your modern living space with our edit of key homeware pieces from this bachelor pad worthy brand. Masculine design themes complement the minimalist homeware trend of the moment and this Octopus cushion (£30) combines oh so on trend earthy tones with a super cool illustration.

Add a pop of colour and interest to your pad with this framed insect print (£45). 

The Dragonfly or Moth tea towel (£10 each) will bring an appealingly macho edge to the kitchen.

For a dad to be who likes to know the facts, then this Congratulations card by Zeal illustrates the growth of a baby in fruit and veg form! (£3.50)

Whether you want to go hilarious or heartfelt, we have a great selection of Father’s Day cards in store too. Don’t forget it’s on Sunday 19th June and Emily Coxhead, Lola & Gilbert, Letterbox Lane and Timbergram have got your back. (£2-£4)

Any menswear purchase goes straight into a recognizable WSd carrier bag… with a masculine twist…

Let us know what you think of the new man cave! Do you plan to get lost in it this weekend?!
