Style Guide: ’90s Revival

Presented by

If you haven’t caught on by now, Y2K-inspired fashion has taken the scene by storm. As sales for velour jumpsuits and nearly-bootcut jeans presumably skyrocket, we adhere to the idea of straying away from trends, albeit sticking to a much more traditional and effortless status quo. When it comes to keeping things effortless, few decades stand out as much as the ’90s, in which the ever-so-accessible “grunge” fashion made a significant statement and never looked back. To acknowledge this emblematic time for music, style, and culture, we’ve dedicated this guide to promoting a ’90s-era revival.

Beringia’s Japanese-made Farallon Wool Plaid Shirt is arguably one of the best flannels you’ll ever pick up, boasting an innovative composition of regenerated wool that uses no dyes or new fibers, serving as a testament to premium Japanese craftsmanship. Moreover, the piece is fully-crafted in Japan. Lastly, it’s finished off with a set of Schoeller abrasion patches and a pair of zippered chest pockets for maximum function.

Chuck 70 Vintage Canvas

Barring basketball sneakers, few silhouettes exemplify the ’90s as much as a set of tattered Chuck Taylors. And while you’ll most likely be picking up a fresh pair directly from Converse, each step you take and each scuff they earn adds to the personal character of this iconic high-top shoe.

Lady White Co. T-Shirt

No matter the scenario, a plain white t-shirt is bound to work just fine. This option from Lady White Co. has been claimed as one of the world’s best time and time again, leaving us no choice but to include the sturdy 2-pack in this guide based around keeping things simple and cool without even trying.

Louis Vuitton Ombre Nomade EDP

Dry, deep, and virtually eternal, there’s no way to go wrong with this remarkably woody fragrance. Courtesy of none other than Louis Vuitton, Ombre Nomad is a spicy, nighttime scent made extra intoxicating due to its oud top note. And while it might be pricy, the EDP lasts as long as needed and then some.

Tom Wood Cushion Hawkeye & Sterling Silver Signet Ring

Tom Wood’s jewelry catalog is practically timeless by default. The handcrafted Cushion signet ring pulls no gimmicks, boasting a greyish-blue hawk eye stone and surrounded with glistening, rhodium-plated sterling silver to give it that consistent sense of minimalism connoted with the Norwegian brand.

Celine Homme Kurt Straight-Leg Jeans

Celine Homme is currently having a moment, and exemplary garments like these jeans are one of many reasons why. The Parisian fashion house’s Kurt jeans are distressed to a tee, highlighted by a quartet of faded pockets, whiskered edges, and none of those forced rips we’ve grown used to seeing on vintage-inspired denim.
