Spring time is just around the corner, at least if you look at the calendar and in clothing shops. One place that is indeed ready from spring is Brund. Earlier this week, these pictures were posted on the shop’s Facebook page (which I can only recommend you to “like”). If you need a fresh checked shirt, a nice printed t-shirt or a jacket to you dry from the spring showers, you’re most likely to be able to find something you like here. Also, of course there’s denim and boot news.
If you’re in need for a new jacket that will keep you dry without making you sweat like a pig while biking around Copenhagen, the spring collection from Penfield is offers the perfect, and very affordable solution. This is the Gibson model.
The Hudson Wax Cloth used for this jacket is woven of a 65/35 percent combination of polyester and cotton, and waxed to keep it waterproof while breathable. The technique is similar to that is Fjällräven’s G1000 fabric, which some of you might know of. This means that you can also re-impregnate your Penfield jacket, but since you can’t buy the original wax I’d recommend Fjällräven’s Greenland Wax.
In Brund you’ll also find a deluxe (yet modestly priced) version of a spring jacket from British Barbour. In contrast to the traditional oil skin jacket linked to the brand, this spring you can get a Barbour jacket that is actually washable.
