TukTuk Spring/Summer 2012 collection

February 21, 2012

One of the labels I was impressed with at Jacket Required were TukTuk. Based primarily in Sri Lanka, the label produces a range of Menswear that encompasses shirts, chinos, bags and other accessories that are both really well made and pleasantly affordable.

For this Spring/Summer season, the label once again takes its inspiration from the colours, tastes, personalities and sights of South Asia. The combination of traditional shirt styles and bold and bright fabrics gives their products a fun, Summery feel whilst still paying attention to fit, finish and detailing. The shirting consists of various checks, floral prints and stripes, and with the various button-down collar styles, the label say there’s also an underlying Mod selement to the collection.

Since the label launched a few season’s back they’ve been improving the quality of the fabrics and also things like buttons, which have been moved away from simple plastic to Coconut shell and pearl – small touches maybe but proof that the label are committed to making their product the best they can be, and that quality can still be well priced.

Although it’s the shirts that I’ve focused on here, as said above, the brand do a nice line in chinos and shorts. Both come in a tailored fit, with the chinos in particular coming in an array of bright and tropical colours. There’s also a range of bags, with both totes (again in bright colours and featured in my first Jacket Required post) and also larger hold-all type pieces present. Then finishing things off is a range of smaller items like leather belts and iPad covers.

    i think they’ve done really well to keep the prices down but still offer something in nice fabrics and interesting designs

    I have had Tuk Tuks for a few years now – cracking shirts, great fit, although I have to move the top button as I like to do my shirts up to the top. This more my fat neck I suppose, but with Albam, Farah, garbstore and Levis etc etc this is not a problem. If the Grey Chambray is still available I would heartily recommend.
