As you may realise by now we get excited when new retailers are brought to our attention, especially independent ones that avoid this idea of being to commercial or mainstream. We also appreciate a quirky name, so when we heard about ‘Fat Buddha’ we were instantaneously intrigued. This is not a store just about fashion, it is about lifestyle and living as individuals as creatively as possible.
They have only been in business for approximately seven years, opening its doors in 2006 as a small store and then relocating to a three floor premises to accommodate their expansion. They felt that Glasgow (their home base) was lacking a store that sold all the key ingredients of modern street culture, i.e. clothing, footwear, design led books, urban vinyl toys and spray paint supplies. Due to the ongoing success and many requests from their customers they eventually decided to launch a website to cater for those who could not make all the way to bonny Scotland.
There are too many items to show you here, so what has been decided is to show you a few pieces from one of the brands that really caught our attention – Edwin Jeans. A brand that exueds a cool, casual and easy style with many transitional pieces that will fit into and enhance any man’s wardrobes.
As mentioned before it isn’t just clothing they sell, here is a list of some of the other wonderful items they have on offer:
Clothing by Carhartt, Wood Wood, Garbstore, Edwin, The Hundreds, Nike, Obey, Undefeated, Huf to name but a few.
