I could go on about the noticeable lack of really cool boys fashions compared to what is available for girls. With three boys and one girl of my own, I’m speaking from experience. But I’m not going to carry on – it’s a waste of time, particularly when I come across a label like Fore Axel & Hudson. This stuff is so fabulous and so different it will blow your (argyle) socks off.
Fore Axel & Hudson is a sharp, golf-inspired collection for boys. Think country club meets California cool. Designed by golf-addict dad Paul Nguyen, the collection draws upon the history of golf and its signature flair for fashion.
Nguyen has hit a hole-in-one with preppy polos, check shorts and hip vests and cardigans. The collection features subtle patterns and bright citrus colours to reinvent the classic golf look – houndstooth, golf tees, golf carts and edgy skull-and-golf-club crossbones. Swagger around in a fedora or driver cap to complete the look. Most of the clothing is made from ultra-soft and sustainable bamboo which means boys can enjoy a full day on the ‘course’ in comfort and style.
Fore!! Axel & Husdon is available from Poppy Clementine who ship internationally. Prices range from US$17.95 for caps through to US$35.95 for jackets and roll-cuff shirts.
