Everyday Coolmax® Short

Brixton’s Everyday Coolmax® Shorts are a game-changer for warm-weather wear. Combining style, comfort, and practicality, these shorts are a testament to Brixton’s commitment to quality.

Fabric and Fit
Made with a blend of cotton, polyester and CoolMax® polyester, these shorts offer the perfect mix of breathability and flexibility. The CoolMax® polyester, partly recycled, ensures you stay cool and dry, even on the hottest days. The relaxed fit and 17” outseam with a 7” inseam provide ample room for movement, making them ideal for both leisurely strolls and active days out.

Design and Features
The military-inspired design elements are not just for show. Deep utility pockets add a functional edge, perfect for carrying essentials like your phone, wallet, or keys without the bulk. The adjustable elastic waistband enhances comfort, allowing for a customised fit. Available in a versatile sepia tone, these shorts pair well with a variety of tops and footwear, making them a versatile addition to your summer rotation.

Joanna Hat

No summer outfit is complete without the perfect hat, and Brixton’s Joanna Hat is the epitome of sunny-day sophistication.

Material and Protection
Crafted from 100% wheat straw, the Joanna Hat is lightweight yet durable. Its 10 cm (4″) brim offers substantial sun protection, rated at a powerful UPF 50+, ensuring you stay safe from harmful UV rays while enjoying the outdoors.

Style and Comfort
The grosgrain band adds a touch of elegance, complemented by a metal headwear plaque that subtly showcases the brand. Inside, an adjustable Velcro strap under the sweatband ensures a secure fit, making it both stylish and practical. Whether you’re attending a garden party or hitting the beach, the Joanna Hat is your perfect companion for a sunny day out.

Bowery Lightweight Ultra Soft Flannel

Flannels aren’t just for fall. Brixton’s Bowery Lightweight Ultra Soft Flannel redefines this classic piece for year-round wear.

Fabric and Feel
This shirt is made from 100% cotton brushed flannel, weighing in at a comfortable 150GSM. The garment has undergone a sol wash, giving it an incredibly soft hand feel that you’ll appreciate from the moment you put it on. The custom yarn-dye plaids add a unique touch, ensuring you stand out in any crowd.

Design and Fit
Featuring a standard fit, the Bowery Flannel is neither too tight nor too loose, making it perfect for layering or wearing on its own. A left chest pocket with a woven label adds a subtle yet stylish detail. This flannel’s versatility makes it a staple for cool summer evenings or breezy days, pairing effortlessly with jeans, shorts, or chinos.
