British designer Andrew Buckler showcases his casually stylish line of menswear—including his signature “Skinny Bastard” and “Sexy Bastard” jeans—in these two namesake stores. Both spaces are minimalist, laidback lairs, with black walls, worn floors, industrial wood and iron detailing, and curving, serpentine racks of clothes. The apparel incorporates dapper updates on classic silhouettes, featuring striped and tweed fitted vests with pocket chains, stiff grey trench coats decked with buckles and zippers, leather jackets, thick cable knit cardigans, and pointy-toed dress shoes. The denim is available in four fits, from skinny to relaxed, best paired with the form-boosting Sexy Bastard underwear (involving a snug interior pocket that the Skinny Bastard-sporting clerks describe simply as “the equivalent of a push-up bra for men”). Traditionalists can scope out unadorned, tailored jeans in dark washes, while more daring Buckler fans browse pairs with super-skinny cuts, contrasting stitching, or embellished back pockets. The collection also offers dressed-down sport and street wear, like mesh-lined jogging shorts, graphic tees, and mercerized cotton hooded tanks.
