Form & Thread was born out of a simple frustration. Excellent quality menswear essentials are too expensive.
Whether it be interior design, architecture, photography or fashion, I tend to gravitate towards the minimal. It’s not that I think we should have less things but rather the things that we do invest in should add value. For me that means serving as a foundation on which to layer my wardrobe. I’ve been attempting to approach the situation like a designer of some of my favourite interiors might do. The formula I’ve been following is pretty straightforward :
Quality made basics + Subtle details = Timeless Design
It’s important to remember that “we wear our essential items every day so it’s important that they’re well made”. Thanks to Form & Thread, ‘well made’ no longer has to mean expensive. They’ve managed to partner with Europe’s leading textile manufacturers directly to produce quality year round pieces at common sense prices. When it comes to putting together a solid wardrobe, Form & Thread have everything covered.
Like many others, I first discovered Form & Thread through their exceptional tripled twisted yarn socks. Since then I’ve added the expertly cut 100% cotton loopback fleece sweatshirt, the white essential Oxford Shirt made from superior Italian fabric and most recently the newly released real indigo mid-weight jersey t-shirt*.
This solid foundation coupled with a pair of white trainers (these days it’s usually Stan Smiths, Novesta’s or Common Projects) and a slim fitting pair of trousers (like the drawstring Selected Homme navy pants shown below) and I’ve got a versatile look that will see me through the year and beyond.
So what does this actually mean? Well it means that I’m not hanging around waiting for sales or buying low quality items that need to be replaced every month or two – it’s a system that works for me.
