DROP EVERYTHING:
THIS WEEK'S SUSTAINABLE STYLE

A special edition courtesy of Moses Rashid, the style guru behind luxury resale platform The Edit Man.

Every week, we deliver DROP EVERYTHING – a first-class round-up of the most urgent, sustainable, progressive and forward-thinking releases that need to go straight into your wardrobe.

Well, like every week, this week has not just been a week, but A Week for all of us. Onwards we all struggle towards the unknown depths of a bitter winter, still not knowing what day is when and how to make that ever-elusive perfect loaf of sourdough.

But, ho-hum, let’s all look stylish while we’re at it. 

Enter The Edit Man, recently joining the likes of Vestiaire Collective, Reselfridges and Designer Exchange in the luxury resale market. The team has a simple mission – to become the number one destination for high-end garms. While many resale and rental sites focus heavily on womenswear (see Refashion or HURR), The Edit Man is all about menswear, specialising in big-brand streetwear (think Yeezy, Supreme, Palace).

It goes without saying that preloved portals work their shoes-that-look-like-socks off to ensure they operate more sustainably. They lend no hand in the environmentally costly creation of any new goods, plus have the most transparent supply chain possible – registered resellers. It’s secondhand shopping, but turbo-charged.

We challenged Moses Rashid – the head-honcho behind the platform – to select some of his favourite pieces on offer. Here’s what we thought of them (buckle in, there are some absolute belters):

BALENCIAGA TRIPLE S GREY

Balenciaga shoes are a bit naughty, aren’t they? While the French fashion house lends its sartorial hand to anything from suiting to shades, its shoes have always come closest to crossover status. This Triple S Grey pair elevates a chunky Dad-shoe silhouette to ice-cool status, melding together crystal-clear arctic tones – it’s no wonder these triple-soled badboys created such a flurry of excitement last year.

£475

LOUIS VUITTON x NIGO SQUARED JUMPER

Louis Vuitton squared equals pull-over gold. It’s a pretty simple formula, design-wise, for this one – the classic LV lockout has been subscripted with a ‘2’ to represent what Virgil Abloh described as ‘The acknowledgment that one idea can coexist with another’. Which reminds us a bit of that crude Kanye lyric about concentrating on two things at once, but we’ll let you hit up Genius to see what we mean.

£600

YEEZY BOOST 500 SOFT VISION

The violet pink on these shoes is absolutely unreal, somewhere in-between parma violets and a retro bar of soap. It tops a suede and leather combo, and is fortified with mesh to keep everything yeezy-breezy whatever the weather. Pair these with a pink polo and you’ll feel like a fashion college graduate.

£220

SUPREME x NORTH FACE TACTICAL VEST

So, it’s weird that in a matter of years North Face turned from the staple brand of your Uni’s orienteering society to essential road-ready clobber. But it happened, and we’re all for it – especially when they linked-up with the likes of Supreme and hit the utilitarian, technical vibe right on the head. G-clips, plastic buckles, hidden pockets and steely zips galore.

£380

OFF-WHITE x AIR JORDAN 1 RETRO HIGH OG

No word of a lie here, these are not cheap. Like, very, very, very spenny. Equally, though, this pair of shoes is a piece (or two) of history: it’s the first collab between Virgil Abloh and Nike, and is embellished with all sorts of nick-nacks and details, from dated text to retro logos and fresh appliques. Maybe go splits with a mate and wear one each?  

£2,500
