Newfangle: casual menswear from Portugal










Portugal is a beautiful country, but it’s not one you’d associate immediately with casual clothing – the weather’s too good to spend your time obsessing over lambswool jumpers or expensive watches. However, menswear brand Newfangle is quickly changing our minds. 
Originally a shop selling casual clobber, Newfangle has started to produce its own gear – and it’s absolutely superb. For Spring/Summer 16, it’s delivered a range that  combines well-thought-out tailoring (witness the breast pocket on that grey sweatshirt) with super-colourful fabrics. Deep, navy blue combines with spots of red on a killer shirt, while tartans, aquamarines and white come into play on a variety of jumpers and tees. It’s like being submerged in a tasteful version of The Beatles’ Yellow Submarine. 
So excited were we about the stuff – and when we get excited, you better make sure there’s no teetering piles of crockery about – we demanded some shots of the new collection. Then we asked Newfangle about, well, Newfangle. Here’s what they said: 
“We produce garments that can look good in different occasions, with utility in mind and where the attention to detail is taken to extreme by committed family factories. A combination between the functionality of sportswear with workwear aesthetics. Quality casual menswear made for any given situation. Our main idea is to reflect the good things about Portugal with a touch of style.”
Even though we’re all now thinking about Autumn/Winter (groan), the sunny world of Newfangle can just be over the horizon… a shining, beacon of summer ready to take us in and buy us that first cold beer of the season. See you soon, friends.
