Let's face it- shopping for your boyfriend/ husband/ brother is hard. For women out who has faced the difficulties of buying clothes for the men in their lives, we all know which part is the hardest - getting the perfect fit and style. But fear not- today I want to talk about my recent experience with Kronstadt, a simple, Danish menswear brand that sells elegant, trendy and modern men's clothing for all shapes and sizes.
A bit about Kronstadt- the brand was conceived in 1999 when two bohemian Danes decided a funky clothing brand was missing from the fashion scene in Scandinavia and one night, the brand Kronstadt was born. The name Kronstadt originates from the Russian town famous for its uprising against the Bolsheviks in 1920’s and even led to the birth of a punk band Kronstadt Uprising. Ever since then, the brand has been famous for its simple, modern menswear looks which is sold across the whole of Europe.
So what are the best gift ideas you can get your man? For me, I chose two items from their shop to feature for you today. Each of these items were chosen because they would fit into the wardrobes of the everyday man without looking out of place - take a look below!
If there's one thing that my man needs in his wardrobe, it's probably this pair of anthracite Keld Pants. Grey is a versatile colour because you can wear it to work and casual events, without everyone giving you strange looks. The quality and fit of these pants are once again amazing. They fit perfectly and tapers really nicely at the calves, giving any guy a slimmer and stylish look. I think for men's clothes, fit is most important, so I'm so happy that all of their pieces are tailored to fit a man's body. I think every man should own a pair of grey trousers and this pair from Kronstadt really captures that sophisticated, styled look!
In terms of the quality and design, what makes these pants unique is that they actually have an elastic waist on the inside which can be adjusted and made to fit your waist. This makes the pants much more versatile and flexible, as it can be worn for years to come. I also love the button details at the front which gives the pants an extra elegant look.
Secondly, I got this gorgeous white Cable knit jumper, which looked more incredible in real life than in pictures. I think that every man needs a few stylish knits in their wardrobes because knitwear is practical, stylish and masculine. This Kronstadt jumper is perfect because cable knit always gives off a very manly feel, and makes the upper body of a man look even bigger. What's special about this jumper is that it is made from pure cotton, which means that the fibres are natural, breathable and really luxurious.
A white jumper can go pretty well with anything in a guy's wardrobe. I love seeing it paired with a pair of chinos or jeans, with some boots to finish the look. Kronstadt also has blue, black and grey jumpers in a variety of patterns and knits. They even have zip up jumpers with different necklines, so there's something for everyone!
Overall, I can't get enough of Kronstadt's simple, timeless pieces. They would make wonderful gift ideas for your man regardless of his age or size, and they look effortlessly stylish and sophisticated.
