Spring 2009: Artificial Flavor

The first taste of spring comes, appropriately enough, from the boys at Artificial Flavor. For spring, the color palette utilized muted earth tones to focus on the fabric and comfortable fits that they've gotten so good at making. This delivery includes something for everyone, whether you're looking for some basics to fill out your wardrobe or needing to add some polish and structure. Click on prices to purchase from the Dapper webstore.

Storm Hoody, $114

Low key, but high shine, the Storm Hoody is the perfect windbreaker. "Wet" nylon is accented with matte trim, ribbed cuffs and hem, and several pockets for function and flair.

Moto shirt, $80

Light-weight twill shirt that works great as either a regular shirt or a shirt jacket for brisk days. Adjustable cuffs and snap-down neck strap with a grosgrain trimmed pocket.

Snap Front Jacket, $114

A sharp silhouette and slightly cropped proportions give a tough look, but the comfy cotton of this jacket provide an excellent contrast. Angled chest pockets, waist pockets, and buttoned-sleeves give it extra functionality and versatility.

Kangaroo Pocket Hoody in black, $87

Simple zip-up hoody in a slightly washed out black for that lived-in look. Gunflap-inspired detailing at the shoulders and pieced hood construction add the necessary details to make this more than a simple basic.

Kangaroo Pocket Hoody in navy, $87

Same as the above, but in a navy colorway.

Havana Shirt in black, $70

Short-sleeved button down inspired by the guayabera shirts of Latin America. Grosgrain trims, contrast flap chest pockets, and a stiff canvas collar give this casual button down a healthy dose of edgy detailing.

Havana shirt in olive, $70

Same as the above, but in an olive colorway with tonal olive pocket flaps.

Waffle Neck, $75

A carryover from a previous collection, we loved the versatility and subte button detailing on the Waffle Neck that we just had to bring it back.

AF Polo in black, $72

Artificial Flavor's standard AF Polo gets an update with a smaller collar and metal buttons. A great piece for any guy's casual wardrobe.

Marcus's pick: Destroyer, $84

Marcus isn't big on watches, but he can't resist something simple, clean, and (of course) black. The Destroyer is made from a high-gloss lightweight plastic.

Michael's pick: Calcutron in silver, $110

Michael is a self-avowed nerd, despite what his cool hair and slim jeans tell you. So it wasn't a big surprise when he expressed his affection for the Calcutron. Stainless steel case with stopwatch and alarm functions as well as a backlit display.

Look forward to another batch coming in March. Click on prices to purchase each shirt from the Dapper webstore.

Ticket to Ride, $85

White button down in a textured weave for a quiet but bold statement. We love the rounded edge on the French cuffs and simple cufflinks which give it a stylist, but not too fussy look.

Radio Retaliation, $86

Need a casual shirt? Need a dress shirt? Opt for both in one, instead. Cool button placket with contrast stripes printed on underneath and inside the back add some visual flair. Roll-up sleeve with a buttoned strap let you go from the office to the bar in a snap.

Modern World, $88

Smooth and sleek, this shirt comes in a dark brown/blue stripe with a covered button placket for a more refined silhouette.

Love in the Club, $98

What looks like a plain black button down is actually loaded with cool detailed work. Tonal black embroidery on the right shoulder and subtle black woven stripes will make people look twice.
