We’ve presented our shirts in cooperation with the Signum on Tuesday evening. Because we only presented it to dolls with animal heads, we would now like to push our little lookbook in. Finally, very few of us carry a decent boar head on their shoulders – which is a great pity, btw.
Textilwirtschaft writes about the shirt. “It’s being blogged now. The print professionals from Braunschweig (Signum) have invited support to the creative studio. The makers of men’s fashion blog Dandy Diary sacrificed their creative input for a special limited edition of shirts. The result is a shirt like a tree which means a multi-colored leaf print on the shoulders that looks as if the leaves sailed straight onto the shirt owner. Buttons used are held in forestry faithful tree-grates optics.”
“A shirt like a tree” – cool! Why have we not not yet thought of this precise description? Superkool!

After metrosexuality and spornosexuality, is it lumbersexuality going to be in?
Media as The Guardian, The Daily Beast and Buzzfeed presented ‘lumbersexual’ as the ‘next big thing’. Men with enormous beards and bellies in lumber-shirts, in work-boots, with wool-beanies on their heads and a freshly tapped beer in their hand.
But is that really the new trend? Men, who combine checked patterns with checked patterns, and who look like they have chucked some trees in the wood. No, not really. The look has been existing in the gay-scene for years (‘bears’ or ‘cubs’).
Plus we already know about the core-elements of the look (beard, lumber-shirt) from the hipster-scene. The picture (view the photo), which was used to express lumber-sexuality in a photo, has also been used to present the usual example of a hipster to their readers.
The hipster already was an anti-movement to the metro. The man became a man again. Sun-studios, picked eye-browes or shaved chests – all in all a no-go for the hipster. ‘Lumbersexuality’ is therefore no new anti-movement to metrosexuality, as it is celebrated in the media, but simply a continuation of the hipster-movement.
Therefore an old, fat hipster, who is drinking beer the whole day and who is just to distinguish by experts of ‘gay bears’. Therefore: no ‘next big thing’!
