Let it be said that for a brand based in the U.K., Marshall Artist channels Americana cool pretty well. The young British menswear line first caught our eye at PROJECT NY, and their spring 2012 collection is definitely worth a closer look–if you don’t check out the details, you will miss out. From afar, their range of utilitarian pieces look like the story of when L.L. Bean met J. Crew, but we’re really celebrating the details that make these chambray jackets, selvedge denim, and fishermen sweaters distinctly stylish, yet fully functional in sportier environs. For instance, let’s all drool over the fact that many of their naval- and military-inspired chambray jackets are waterproof. Denim in the rain? Yeah, we can totally get behind that.
