Appaman July/August Press Round-Up!

August 18, 2017 in Appaman News, Appaman Style, In the news, Press, Star Style

We are so excited here at Appaman to drop our amazing winter line next week. So, we thought we’d do a PRESS ROUND UP of all the places you might have seen Appaman’s  FW17 line out and about.

RACKED 

We got a shout out in one of our favorite fashion blogs, RACKED, in an article on shopping for fun and unique Kid’s clothing. It turns out that Anica John, CEO of Kid Things is a huge Appaman fan! She comments:

 “I knew that I needed to get some brands that do boys’ clothes really well so it would be fun to shop for them.” She cites brands like Appaman and Andy + Evan as ones that carry more imaginative boys’ looks.”

 

APPAMAN IN PARENTS MAGAZINE: FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL FEATURE 

You might have seen us Family Fun’s super cute round-up of back-to-school wear. We love the bright  colors and graphics! Can you spot our slim leg denim, our best-selling twill pants in jungle green and our girls Adler tee (the super cute silver donut print is hard to miss!)

 

APPAMAN IN B3 CARIBBEAN

We cannot get enough of this gorgeous cover pic of Ziggy Marley and his family. How handsome do the boys look in our fine tailoring?

 

APPAMAN IN EARNSHAWS JULY

 

We love the sharp styling of this great spread in  Earnshaw’s July magazine. You can see our Navy Windowpane suit (available now), and our favorite Faux fur girls coat in Garnet.

Appaman is a favorite for so many of our pocket-sized stars of stage and screen. Check it out!

An Appaman Baby Shower

May 9, 2017 in Appaman News, Appaman Style, DIY

Appaman HQ loves to celebrate, and what better occasion than a new baby?

Operations Manager Alyssa is expecting her first child, and with her due date right around the corner, we gathered the staff and headed to Brooklyn for a garden party baby shower at Lynn & Harald’s house.

Spring 2017 Collection Suiting Guide

March 25, 2017 in Appaman Style

suiting

We know that choosing the right suit for the occasion can be overwhelming. With so many styles, colors and fabrics, how do you know which is best? We broke down the Appaman 2017 Fine Tailoring Collection to offer some style tips and detailed descriptions of our spring and summer Mod Suits. Happy shopping!

 

linen-appaman-boys-ss17-suiting-guide

Linen and linen blend suits are perfect for adding a laid-back, summery vibe to your look while still being appropriate for formal occasions. This classic warm weather fabric has a looser weave than other styles, allowing air to flow for a cool, comfortable fit. The matte (no shine) finish gives it the textured look of natural fibers. Available in Fog (100% linen) or Dusty Blue (linen blend).

chino-appaman-boys-ss17-suiting-guide

Cotton suits are as comfortable as your favorite chinos. Cool, lightweight twill has a tight, flat weave with a matte finish and a comfortable fit. Ours comes in red, which is an awesome way to make a statement while keeping it casual. This is a great suit to re-style with your favorite old-school sneakers, and it’s versatile enough to pull into your early fall wardrobe. Looks great with black, white, and light blue.

prince-of-wales-appaman-boys-ss17-suiting-guide

This suit is formal, the pattern is traditional, but the look is far from stuffy. When styled with bright colors or pastel patterns, it takes a decidedly fashion-forward look. Prince of Wales, commonly known as Glen Plaid, is a box-like pattern consisting of light and dark contrasting fine lines, that is iconic enough to have been a regular featured as part of the James Bond wardrobe throughout the years. Our version incorporates blue and grey for a great spring-friendly look that’s sophisticated yet youthful.

bengal-stripe-appaman-boys-ss17-suiting-guide

We love the subtle elegance of the delicate Bengal Stripe: a crisp, lightweight cotton blend material woven with a narrow blue and white stripe pattern. Up close, it resembles seersucker, but with a much finer stripe. From a few steps back, it’s a gentle powder blue with a hint of texture. It’s a great option for a summertime formal occasion, so we made ours with shorts instead of pants. Looks great with a bow tie and a crisp white shirt.

seasonal-solids-appaman-boys-ss17-suiting-guide

For maximum versatility in spring & summer suiting, try a seasonal solid blue. The Mod Suit in Deep Cobalt (available with shorts or pants) is lighter and brighter than a traditional formal navy suit and is made from a matte finish breathable material that’s not much heavier than shirting fabric. Cobalt is one of our most popular choices this season and looks fantastic with almost any bold, bright pattern, soft pastel, or contrasting accessory.

Those who like our traditional mid/light weight semi-shine suiting will love the super sharp Mod Suit in Cool Blue. It’s a great choice for extra-special events like spring holidays (try a pastel tie for Easter photos) or weddings. Ringbearer suit, anyone?

Jacob Tremblay Previews Resort Collection 2017

January 15, 2017 in Appaman Style, New This Season, Star Style

One of Appaman’s favorite showbiz kids is at it again — rocking Appaman style and having fun doing it. Check actor Jacob Trembley’s Instagram for a preview of some great new arrivals you’ll soon see in our Resort 2017 collection, including the Long Sleeve Rash Guard, Swim Trunks, and Anchor Tee. (We think the captain’s hat is some A+ accessorizing.) This time, he’s joined by his equally as cute sister, Emma, hitting the surf in her Maui Rash Guard Set.

Adding a formal coat or fun jacket to your holiday party outfit is a great way to complete your photo-ready look. Why cover up your fancy fashion with snow gear when you could complement it with faux fur, velvet, or a smart and sophisticated overcoat? Nothing beats a great coat or jacket to add the perfect final touch and make a special event extra special.
