Cheap Monday and Kostym

This season, not only have we got two great washes in Cheap Monday's regular fit, but we've also got some pieces from their Kostym collection, an offshoot of the main line for more tailored and sophisticated looks.

Kostym Trench, $155

A lightweight, but still rather substantial trenchcoat, this piece is perfect for breezy summer nights. Lined in a lightweight synthetic mesh, this trenchcoat has a row of snap closures and includes a belt to keep your silhouette clean.

Mod Jacket, $140

Take a cue from Hardy Aimes, the British arbiter of mod fashion during the 60s, with this three-button suit jacket. With a higher button stance, double vents, and a trim shape, this jacket just oozes style.

Mod Pant in grey and black, $100 (Sold Out)

Kostym's Mod Pants are a wonderful slightly tapered trouser with slash pockets on the side and welt pockets on the back. A perfect cut for summer, dress it down or up as you like.

But it's the small details that make Kostym such a fun line. This little message ("Never Forget the Secret Handshake) lines the waistband on the pants.

Regular fit in broken blue, $65

Those looking for a great pair of blue jeans in a classic cut with clean detailing should look no further. It's tough to describe the wash on these jeans; it's a lighter blue in Cheap Monday's signature raw denim for your summer wardrobe, but still dark enough so you don't look like you're a couple decades behind.

Regular fit in alive black, $65

The black on these jeans is absolutely beautiful. Since these aren't overdyed, there's a white weft that adds a grainy, grey look to the denim. Both of these are great jeans that'll only look better with age.
