MELOW Underwear

We'd like to introduce you to a brand that only sells underwear. The name of the brand is MELOW.

The brand started in 2011 at the fabric market in Utrecht, The Netherlands. There are quite a few brands like this one out there, that are trying to make it. But check out how MELOW really makes a difference!

It's all about comfort. They're making boxershorts that they would like to wear themselves. MELOW gets their 100% cotton fabric from the well known neighbourhood SoHo, New York.

Here comes the original part of MELOW. Prints of birds, fruit and flowers make these boxers really stand out from the crowd. If that's not enough for you guys, then you should check out their unique way of packaging your pair. All of them are delivered in a specially designed VHS video box. Pretty awesome, right? Check out the pictures below to see what we are talking about.

The brand is already popular in The Netherlands and the boxers are even sold in a store in the UK. Obviously, they are still growing and conquering the rest of the world!

The pictures don't really do the boxers justice, so definitely check out their website. We really like this brand and the prints. The boxershorts are fun and brighten up your day when you put them on in the morning. See for yourself!

Event: Urban Mobility Bike Tour with Strellson

Strellson is celebrating its 30th birthday this year. They prefer to call it "30 Years of Modern Swissness"! Everything started back in the day, in 1984, when Uwe and Jochen Holy created the Strellson AG. Nowadays it's an international lifestyle brand and their collections are available in over 40 countries.

To celebrate Strellson's birthday, they collaborated with the bicycle manufacturer Bianchi. The new must-have of the season is the folding bike. It's really trending all over the world. Bianchi folding bikes will be available for the very first time on the European market due to this collaboration. 

We were given the opportunity to check it out for you guys! We were invited by Strellson at Clinic Conceptore in our hometown Antwerp. We got a guided tour through our city on the brand new bikes. The guide was "Beroepsantwerpenaar" Tanguy Ottomer; he is quite famous in Antwerp. We really enjoyed ourselves.

But what would Strellson be without a perfect collection matching the Bianchi folding bikes? The garments of the new Edition are specially tailored to the demands of city traffic: breathable, ultra-light and quick-drying for a sporty look in Strellson quality.

The 30th Anniversary Edition is also dedicated to the perfect suit: “Everything starts with a perfect suit. Like Strellson has been doing successfully for 30 years”, says Marco Tomasi, Creative Director Strellson. Everything is designed in Switzerland. If you want your own three-piece slim fit suit,  you’ll have to wait until August 2014: they will be available in Strellson stores, at international retailers and in the Strellson online store.

Make sure to check out all the pictures below.
Because riding a bike and making pictures at the same time is quite impossible, we want to credit the awesome photographer Dennis Ravays.

Laurel London

Men Trend did a collaboration with Laurel London, a new British brand that offers 3D printed iPhone cases. They look very unique and stylish, don't they? They're made of a high-quality plastic, are pretty sturdy and they fit your iPhone perfectly. We adore the vanity blue and the vanity black version!

With this product, Laurel London combined a perfect combination between fashion and technology. When buying this iPhone case, you know you have something unique. A case can cost you up to €40-45.

Everybody needs to have some luxury gadgets to stand out from the crowd.
Laurel London understood perfectly that 3D printing is the future and these iPhone cases are definitely the new chique.

Men Trend is a fan, for sure!

Shopping experience

Today's post is slightly different then all our posts lately.

It's going to be about the online shop Zalando. One of the most well-known and popular webshop nowadays. The main reason for this is because they offer a very large range of products. They sell so many brands! If you don't like the 'normal' brands, you can sign up for the 'Zalando Lounge': they offer you a lot of luxury brands with tempting discounts and promotions.

Zalando developed a special page called 'inspiration'. If you're not quite sure what you're looking for or you just need some tips to know what will be trendy next summer, this page can really help you out!

Nino was looking for a new pair of jeans, so we started by hitting the Jeans button on the inspiration page. We got over 1500 different styles of jeans! On top of the page you can select the size, the brand, the prize,... You can adjust it just right for your own needs.

We found this great pair by Nudie Jeans and... obviously we ordered it!
It arrived within a few days and the delivery is free of charge: very important nowadays to make the difference.
Unfortunately they didn't fit, so we decided to return them. This way we could test their service to the fullest for you guys ;-). Nino send them back for free and, within a few days, the perfect jeans arrived at his house. Amazing!

Zalando really is a great webshop and the shopping experience is perfect.

Nino was wearing Nudie Jeans, a Zara shirt, Burberry sunglasses and  Balenciaga's Runner trainers.
