I was excited to recently get in contact with the guys at Open menswear, an exciting new brand which will throw open its doors to the masses this Autumn, both on the highstreet and online.
While its not a store for the dapper gent or the suited and booted, Open aim to deliver a simple no-nonsense approach to menswear. They offer premium quality essential pieces at affordable prices in a simple modern, easy to shop environment. And that’s something that none of us can ignore.

OPEN’s store concept, designed in collaboration with Checkland Kindleysides, reflects the brand’s simple approach and the interior’s neutral colour scheme presents a modern aesthetic.
The interior features raw materials such as wood and metal in combination with OPEN’s signature highlight orange hue.

The interiors of the stores are graced with clean, honest branding. No frills, no fuss, just a great range of essential clothing and high quality basics.
The stores along with their packaging all combined to make OPEN the shopping destination for men who crave that ‘no fuss’ shopping experience.
