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.
