These are some fierce Gods and Demons tees by Sage Trail.
Run by duo Nigel and Ruth, Cotton Love is an independent fashion studio based in the UK. Our objective, is to establish Cotton Love as a label which offers functional, easy to wear clothing with a refinement of detailing, honesty of construction and distinguished identity. The Cotton Love style is about clean lines, confident proportions and considered detailing. A sensibility inspired by 90s minimalism, eastern silhouettes and antique workwear.
We love the simplicity in Cotton Love’s debut menswear & womenswear collection.

It’s the Best of Kickstarter 2012.
Look what you did.
It’s been an inspiring year.
We’re celebrating the most creative projects and memorable moments on Kickstarter in 2012. Looking back, we couldn’t be prouder of this community or more excited for the future. Thanks to all the creators and backers who make it happen — here’s to 2013!
The Grunion Run makes well-tailored clothing for groomsmen that’s affordable and stylish. The project of a wife-and-husband team from LA, this small-scale operation produces apparel that can both stand out at a wedding and earn a spot in your closet afterward. Try this Project of the Day on for size.
Hats for winter waves.
You have to be a little crazy to surf in New England all winter long.
The small team at N.E. Surf definitely loves to shred as the temperature dips, but that doesn’t mean these wave junkies don’t appreciate a little warmth. So they’ve partnered with a couple of local farms and designed a line of beanies made from natural, untreated sheep and alpaca yarn to keep you toasty before and after a wintry dip.
Nothing crazy about that — these handsome hats are the Project of the Day.
We get a lot of questions from women who want to wear men’s suits, but have a hard time with the fitting. Some women have bodies that work decently with menswear, but the honest truth is that it’s hard to fit a woman’s body into a men’s suit - they’re very differently shaped, and the suit is an unforgiving garment. I usually recommend that women and trans folks with feminine bodies just go custom, but that can obviously be prohibitively expensive.
This cool Kickstarter project, Saint Harridan, aims to change that. Their goal is to produce reasonably-priced suiting, shirts and ties for people with womanly bodies but masculine fashion senses. I’m not aware of any off-the-rack options for these folks, and I think it’d be a big step forward. A pledge of just $540 gets you a suit if they’re produced, and that strikes me as a worthwhile investment. Good luck, Saint Harridan!
Women on two wheels.
Ann DeOtte’s designs solve a basic problem: Can you bike in comfort and dress with style?
Her clever answer is Iva Jean, a line of functional clothing for women cyclists that works on and off your ride. DeOtte’s pieces employ just a few clever nips and tucks to seamlessly transition from road to office.
Take the Reveal skirt, pictured above. The tailored skirt unzips in the back to expose additional fabric for easy pedaling, and features a high-waisted cut for comfortable coverage. It’s safety first and fashion forward at the same time — and it’s also our Project of the Day.
