One of the coolest shirts I own is from a young independent New York-based label called Corridor. We first told you about them two years ago and have been checking them out season after season since. They just dropped their latest collection and once again, we love it. Every single piece is on point -the above shirt is an all-time favorite- and as always the brand’s aesthetic is solid. Here’s a selection of flats from the collection’s lookbook. Ps/ 15% off your first order if you sign up to Corridor’s newsletter.

Every year at Easter, it’s the same story. People head out looking for chocolate eggs (or something). But not me. I usually pour myself a nice cup of coffee, sit on my couch and get weird -looking for bargains. I call those Easter bargains. Don’t judge. This year, this journey took me to my favorite menswear e-shop, End Clothing, but also to Farfetch, which I browse less often. Here’s what I found. If you like what you see, hurry up, sizes are limited. Oh and happy Easter, folks!
Only Wednesday but it’s already been a rough week! Can it be the weekend already? At least, it’s started to be nice and warm in London… I know it probably won’t last but in the meantime it has me longing for some sun. And so I thought I’d share with you Toka Toka‘s new lookbook for their latest collection -since it was shot in sunny Marseille and inspired by Cuba! The collection is called Ambus Mundos. It is an ode to good old Ernest Hemingway, who resided in La Havana from 1932 to 1939. It features light Summer shirts inspired by the island and casual jackets and jerseys. All products are available here. Enjoy.
We recently discovered a Norwegian company called Lustbox (read our feature here). And quite frankly, having never worked with a Norway-based label before, we were pretty curious about the country’s menswear scene. So we asked the entrepreneurs behind the subscription box business to point us in the right direction and they immediately recommended we check out a new watch brand called Berg.
At Le club des douze, we believe that it’s important to own a couple of pieces that will make up your wardrobe. But it’s equally as important to accessorize those properly. And to keep it fresh, you will have to build a library of accessories that you love and are happy to choose from, every day. Of course, it can take time and cost you quite a bit of money. Unless you have a system…
I had kind of a revelation earlier today. My daughter (who’s about to turn one!) was playing on the kitchen floor with one of my pocket squares -if you follow us on Instagram (@leclubdesdouze), you might have seen a picture of it in our stories. I’m not sure how she managed to put her hands on it, but she did. And she was happily playing with it, giggling. A part of me thought “alright, let’s put that back where you found it, it’s not a toy” but at the same time, I felt like the fact that she went on a scavenger hunt across the apartment and ended up picking this specific item to play with, deserved to be celebrated. And thus I felt like telling you about a gentleman’s accessories brand that I’m a little bit obsessed with these days, R. Culturi.
We’ve talked about watches a fair amount lately. I’m not sure why. Maybe it’s our obsession du moment... We all have one, don’t we? We introduced a bunch of newer brands -some currently crowdfunding- but today we wanted to come back to the basics and explore the heritage of a maison rooted in history: Dreyfuss & Co.
