Bassike Spring 2013 is Loaded with Tailored Basics and Elasticated Sweatpants

Bassike is the OG of luxe minimalism and crisp, masculine tailoring, and Spring 2013 is loaded with both.

This latest offering loads up on neutrals for its base, as is standard practice for the brand, then pimps that out with quality materials and inventive detailing. A good T-shirt is something you can always rely on Bassike for, as is a perfectly tailored pair of pants. 

The first comes in silhouettes ranging from relaxed to sharp, cropped and darted. The second is sweatpants, in either soft cotton or elasticated leather (we’re calling a trend). It’s a smart move from a brand with its roots in wardrobe staples: Just try choosing between unrivaled comfort and subtle edginess. If the pants fit, buy them in every fabric.

Also, can we talk about the rebirth of Birkenstocks? Here, the two-strap version adds a little Japanese simplicity to the beachy Australian foundations, and they look surprisingly excellent with sweatpants.
