This week’s Wellgosh Wears takes all the best bits from early 00’s street style with a skatepark-friendly edge; with a focus on monochrome complemented with bursts of pastel and bold colours. Distressed, punk-influenced comfort comes in the form of the Fred Perry X Raf Simons Destroyed hoodie, with an oversized fit, pure cotton construction and cut ‘n’ sew motifs; finished tastefully with a limited edition safety pin with a Fred Perry wreath pendant. For a base layer, Sex Skateboard supply the Flowers t-shirt, featuring abstract graphics based on Louis Slater’s artwork, frequently made using spray paint and sand. You can’t go wrong with a crisp, white tee for Spring and Summer, and this piece adds a unique vibe to any t-shirt rotation.
For the bottom half, baggy jeans are back and looking better than ever, with the wide-legged Tyrell Pant from Japanese denim experts, Edwin. These jeans have a perfectly faded dye finish and are guaranteed to look better with every wear. On foot, we see a collaboration between LA-based OG’s XLarge and one of the most prolific sportswear brands, Adidas to celebrate XLarge’s 30th anniversary. The Campus is a classic silhouette that’s been tried and tested by sneakerheads since the ‘80s, and this edition boasts a clean blue suede upper with black leather stripes, an XLarge patch on the tongue and a black and white leopard print lining for a subtle flair. With ample space for your daily essentials, and music-inspired motifs that’ll take you back to your high school backpack, another collaboration between classic and contemporary; the Pleasures X Eastpak Kerr bag. This bag features artwork inspired by real grunge, metal and hardcore bands, boasting a large main compartment with a zippered fastening and a 15” padded laptop sleeve. An external pocket provides additional space for smaller items, with tote handles and a removable shoulder strap for two carrying options. Perfect for commuting, the day-to-day or overnight stays.
