NIC TAYLOR 1 360 MAGAZINE

Nic Tailor

Nic Tailor is a new custom men’s underwear brand, (customizable online), that is changing the game of the undergarment industry by setting a philanthropic standard. The brand was founded by North Carolina natives Cal Mosack and Nolan Mills, along with Audie Cooper, a former designer for Ralph Lauren, taking the lead on the creative.

The trio sought out to create underwear for men made from high quality fabric, that was uniquely fit to your measurements, alleviating any discomfort or the need to adjust due to movement. In September of last year, Nic Tailor partnered with the Prostate Cancer Foundation and Actor Peter Facinelli, for a campaign to raise awareness for prostate cancer. Images of the actor went viral, making headlines as he stripped down to nothing but a pair of Nic Tailors for the campaign; one that hits particularly close to home for the actor, and a cause he is passionate in spreading awareness for.

Nic Tailor’s efforts to raise awareness continues, with a portion of their sales being directly donated to the prostate cancer foundation.  They also just introduced the Dry Fly brief for men who have battled prostate cancer.

The company explains its premise perfectly on its site: “At one time or another, most guys complain about their underwear,” it states. “It never seems to fit quite right because it’s only available in S-M-L-XL sizes. What about your weight, shape, and well, other measurements? Wouldn’t it be great if there were customized underwear? Well now, we figured, with the customizing capabilities of the internet, we could create underwear that is made to your exact size and shape.” Nic Tailor, short for “tailored knickers,” takes into consideration butt size, groin size…everything that makes people different.

“We felt there was a need for a true custom underwear product that was 100 percent made in the USA,” says Audie Cooper.  “If you’re going to pay for a premium pair of underwear you should not be limited to S, M, L, or XL. Our brand is especially great for the guy who sits for long periods of time, athletes, or those guys who have large buns.”

And with prices ranging between $38 and $51, Cooper notes that customers keep coming back for more. For spring, the brand is working on a traditional boxer product versus the boxer briefs it sells now. Cooper also says he is working on developing a new fabric that will allow the brand to offer more color selection and prints.

Serge Ibaka collabs with Nobis on new outwear line as announced by 360 MAGAINE

Nobis x Serge Ibaka

Today, premium Canadian outerwear brand Nobis launched its first capsule collection designed in collaboration with Toronto Raptors centre and NBA champion Serge Ibaka. Known for his #BigScarfEnergy, Ibaka teamed up with Nobis to help create a genderless collection that features nine limited-edition pieces, including a parka, anorak, bomber jacket, vests, hats and, of course, scarves. The highly anticipated capsule collection is available in store and online starting November 19, 2020.

“I’m thrilled to collaborate with Nobis on my first fashion collection. Nobis is very simple and chic, which made me really fall in love with the brand, making them the perfect partner,” says Ibaka. “Getting dressed to me is an art, and I wanted to express myself through this collection and share it with my fans.”

Michael Kerr, Senior Design Director at Nobis, worked directly with Ibaka to bring a shared vision to life. “When your first project on a brand includes a design partnership with Serge Ibaka, you can’t imagine the level of excitement,” says Kerr. “Our collaboration was a balancing act of style and performance. During our design meetings together, we strove to find the right line between fashion and function with the goal being ‘functional beauty’. Starting with the idea of leaning into the new direction of functionally adaptive layers, we came up with designs that also have a modern aesthetic, with a colour palette and several style elements inspired by Serge’s own wardrobe.”

The collection ranges in price from $50 to $850 and each piece is home launderable. Nobis fans can expect the same premium quality, style elements and technical components: The genderless hooded anorak features a modern high-low cut and front pouch, while both the anorak and bomber jacket have a water-repellent nylon shell and breathable Primaloft insulation for fast-drying warmth. The collection’s parka is crafted from Nobis’ patented membrane lamination, seam-sealed construction and insulated with Canadian origin white duck down. The lightweight tactical vest, with multiple exterior pockets, is windproof and breathable – ideal for transitional weather and mild winter days. Reflective trims and iridescent logos on most pieces provide an accent to the neutral palette, in addition to visibility after dark. Accessories have been given the same attention to detail, with options such as a solid nylon ripstop bucket hat that’s reversible to Nobis’ signature printed polyester crosshatch, featuring a tonal “S” logo on the front and an iridescent limited-edition collection label on the back. It reverses to reveal a camouflage print and Serge’s signature “Mafuzzy” catchphrase on the rim.

“We couldn’t be prouder to take our partnership with Serge Ibaka, one of our Global Brand Ambassadors, to the next level with the release of this collaborative collection,” says Nobis Co-founder and Vice President Robin Yates. “Serge represents the best of professional sport and international fashion and we are absolutely delighted to be working together in bringing his vision of Nobis x Ibaka to life.”

The Nobis x Serge Ibaka capsule collection is available starting November 19, 2020 online at Nobis.com and in-store. For updates on Nobis, visit Nobis.com or follow the conversation on social media at @nobis and #NobisxSergeIbaka.

ABOUT SERGE IBAKA
Born in the Republic of the Congo to parents who were both basketball players, Ibaka developed a love for the game from an early age and turned to it as an outlet during the Second Congo War. He played at home during his youth and then in Barcelona, Spain, where he was first drafted by the NBA to play for the Oklahoma City Thunder, and later the Orlando Magic. He was eventually traded to the Toronto Raptors in 2017, later signing a three-year contract and winning the NBA Championship in 2019. Outside of basketball, Serge Ibaka is committed to helping those in need through the Serge Ibaka Foundation, whose projects focus on health and education for orphans in the Congo (working with UNICEF to renovate orphanages, providing healthcare supplies and medical devices such as hearing aids). When he’s not on the court or working for those in need, he enjoys playing Congolese music with friends and developing his personal style.

ABOUT THE BRANDS VISION:​

XIVI​ is dreamed, designed and made in California.​ I​ t is a goal to be locally created from start to finish. This includes everything from design to production including where the fabric is made. Along with where ​XIVI​ is created, they have plans and partners to help focus on sustainability and do their part in cleaning up the fashion industry.

ABOUT THE CREATIVE DIRECTOR:

The young designer Taylor Rose, designs this first collection with a close attention to detail, quality, and luxury. Taylor tells us, “As a young designer my dreams have always been to design Menswear, start my own brand and own my own business. Until COVID-19 happened, I was the assistant designer at Vince with the lack of time outside of work; starting my own brand just wasn’t possible yet. Sheltering in place gave me the time I needed to start my new journey. I took this time as something you are not given in life and can be extremely rare. With the lack of work and extended periods of free time I was able to create ​XIVI​, design my first mini collection and so much more behind the scenes work.”

“No one is going to hand me success. I must go out and get it myself. That’s why I’m here. To dominate. To conquer. Both the world, and myself.”​ – Lewis Howes

Due to the state of the economy and the mindset of people today, comfort is a key factor to how people are dressing for their new daily lifestyle. ​XIVI​ is giving men the option to still look nice while lounging at home, during a zoom meeting and other social situations that may arise. COVID-19 changed the way people dress, interact and live every day. We plan to adapt to a new world of clothing with today’s comfort in mind.

“I really hope that we won’t see anyone left behind because of Covid-19. I do think times of hardship can generate amazing bursts of creativity.” ​- Damien Paul
(Head of menswear at Matches Fashion)

Champion × MTV

Champion Athleticwear launches new 90’s-inspired collaboration with MTV

Champion Athleticwear and MTV are launching a limited-edition clothing and it fulfills all of your vintage street style dreams.

In the collection, Champion combines its classic streetwear designs with MTV’s 90’s aesthetic. The retro clothing collaboration celebrates the styles of hip-hop’s past that inspire the fashions of the future. With iconic prints, retro looks and bright colors, Champion × MTV is reminiscent of the time rappers went from musicians to style icons. The collection features iconic styles from men’s crewneck shirts, tanks, and jackets to women’s body-con dresses and onesies. 

The limited edition Men’s Champion life tank is a prime choice to consider for the holiday weekend. Available in two colors, blue multi and yellow, the flashy top is sure to set off some fireworks. For a fully retro ‘fit, you can pair the tank with the crinkle nylon short. 

Quality is the foundation of the Champion x MTV line. The tank is crafted from thick, heavyweight 7 oz. 100 cotton for durability. The standard, classic fit perfect for easy going mobility is what sets this offering apart. It also features minimalistic intentional branding, a Champion x MTV jock tag at the hem, and a C patch logo at back neck.

To highlight the profound influence that the network and Champion had on the next generation of artists, Champion and MTV have enlisted iconic rapper Jadakiss. Jadakiss, who has had a profound impact on both the music and fashion industries, will showcase the retro capsule collection.

“There’s not many brands that make you automatically think iconic, but Champion and MTV are exactly that,” said Jadakiss. “Coming up in the hip-hop scene, and till this day, you got to always look your best. Champion was one of those brands you could throw on and look and feel your best no matter the occasion. This MTV and Champion collaboration makes sense cause of what they mean to the culture.”

Reasonably priced between $30-80, the collection of both men’s and women’s pieces will be available at Champion.com, MTVShop.com, FootLocker.com, FinishLine.com, Eastbay.com, ChampsSports.com, JimmyJazz.com and Nordstrom.com on June 24.

Ethan Solu

Riding the Wave

Ethan Solu, half Turk and half American, was born on March 6, 2000. E-Sol, fondly mentioned by close friends, was brought up in Morro Bay with three brothers.

Prior to attending the UCSD, he will explore Southeast Asia’s culture, cuisine, nightlife and music. On this tour, he plans to visit Jakarta, Bali and perhaps Singapore. During the last few months, he visited Mexico and was enlightened. “After staying in an indigenous village, in comparison to [USA]… I’m pretty lucky to have this opportunity.” He also donated an undisclosed quantity of used clothing to Aboriginal people in the surrounding areas.

Aside from travelling abroad, he and his father are re-imaging a vintage Radon boat, completely restoring its engine, fiberglass exterior supports with full steps and hydrofoil.

Upon graduation, he hopes to retain the legacy of his parents, Joan Solu and John Solu, as an innovative hotel proprietor by curating a holistic yet intuitive, technology-focused sanctuary for like-minded people.

The American Apparel Fall 2018 Collection features  a curated selection of brand new arrivals and returning iconic favorites, the collection includes an array of denim, tees, leggings, skirts, hoodies, and outerwear in a wide range of colors and prints, available exclusively at AmericanApparel.com.

 

Khairan Majid, American Apparel’s head of merchandising, says the collection “offers an inclusive and refreshing take on fashion basics with longevity. We wanted to break down barriers with gender-neutral silhouettes and a wider size range. The warm, neutral color palette and beautiful luxe fabrics elevate this range, while still keeping the price point accessible.”

This highly-coveted style is a high-waist silhouette with the perfect amount of stretch, now with an updated waistband and improved fit. Available in Black, Navy, Silver Birch, and Lieutenant, the Riding Pant retails at $68.00 with sizing from XS to XXL.

 

Another returning favorite for fall is the bestselling Tennis Skirt, an American Apparel icon and back-to-school essential. This pleated skirt is rendered in lightweight Gabardine polyester, with a wide range of colorways including classic plaid, retailing at $48.00.

The season welcomes the arrival of American Apparel’s first-ever outerwear collection, beginning with a lightweight, year-round Trench Coat – the brand’s interpretation of the classic English silhouette. The Trench Coat is available in Black, Vintage Khaki, navy, Lieutenant, Black/Navy, and Lieutenant/Mauve, with sizes ranging from XS to XXL, retailing at $98.00.

American Apparel’s Fall 2018 collection also launches a new corduroy collection: 100% Cotton styles that are soft to the touch, incredibly comfortable, and vintage-inspired.

Corduroy pieces retail from $58.00 to $88.00, with sizes ranging from XS to XL.

 

Texture plays a key role this season, as American Apparel expands its Thick Rib collection. Thick Rib is a medium-weight cotton-poly blend designed to alter and shape the body, as evidenced by the new Soccer Jersey, Bodysuit, Crewneck Dress, Midi Tube Dress, Crop Turtleneck, Braille, and Flare Pant. Thick Rib colorways are Black, Star White, Lavender, Freesia, and Maroon; sizing runs from XS to XL and styles are retailed from $28.00 to $44.00.

 

Denim plays a key role this fall, with a Denim Pocket Skirt ($58.00) in XS to XL; a Button Flare Jean in Vintage Blue ($68.00) in sizes 24 to 32; a Crop Pencil Jean ($68.00) in sizes 24 to 32; and a new men’s fit: the Straight Jean, made with 14-ounce denim for an authentic vintage feel. The Straight Jean is available in a Dark Wash and Medium Wash, retailing at $68.00 from size 30 to 34.

And in classic American Apparel tradition, fall includes a wide variety of premium basics, from iconic tees, tanks, and pullovers to hoodies, bodysuits, shorts, and much more. Mix-and-match foundational pieces for everyday wear and easy layering – for workouts, weekends, and everything in between. Adds Majid: “We believe in individuality and self- expression, and I think this collection embodies both.”

 

Timberland Mens

The Timberland team recently completed a Q&A answered by Senior Director – Product Management, Donald Desalvio. They highlighted the new American Craft Collection for this feature! Check it out below!

What inspired the new fall [AMERICAN CRAFT] premium men’s collection?

The American Craft Collection embodies generations of authentic American bootmaking. Weset out to build a collection with timeless silhouettes that are made by a socially responsible factory in America using global materials. The boots and shoes are created by dedicated people who understand that time, skill, and the best materials are the difference between the usual and the truly exceptional.

Who’s responsible for the overall look and feel of the newest offerings?

Timberland Men’s Design Director, Chris Mondelli and Senior Product Manager, Troy McErlain, worked closely with the family-owned Munro Company in Wynne, Arkansas, to leverage their legacy of craftmanship – every style in the collection is cut, stitched and assembled in their factory. The importance of the human element in the creation process was a large part of designing each style.

Where were the newest offerings manufactured?

The American Craft Collection was manufactured by the Munro Company in Wynne, Arkansas — a family owned and operated business since 1972. They are dedicated to the craftsmanship of the product and the hands that create it.

Timberland has been a household marquee for so many since the late 1990’s, how are you repositioning to the next generation of consumers?

The next generation of consumers is always changing and evolving. That’s why at Timberland weare continually working to understand the products our consumers want, what is most important to them in terms of style and technology, and how that fits in with our core values and beliefs.

Is there anything we should be on the lookout from Timberland when it comes to innovation and technology?

Timberland is constantly testing and developing new innovations to inspire our current and future lines. One of our current innovations – Aerocore Energy System – comes to life in new styles this season like the 1978 FlyRoam Hiker and CityForce Reveal Leather Boot.
