Carhartt WIP - 'Burnout' Editorial

We are now reaching the apex of summer so what better time to check out the latest beautifully photographed shoot from Carhartt WIP . Shot close to the arid dirt tracks and dense foliage of Topanga Canyon by LA-based photographer Dan Regan, Carhartt WIP’s latest editorial, titled Burnout, explores the versatility of this season’s collection, as summer staples intersect with utilitarian classics. Reflective of a climate of dense daytime heat and plummeting late-night temperatures, graphic t-shirts and layered button-down shirts are paired with items like our Double Front Jacket and Wesley Jacket. Both take inspiration from classic work gear, featuring multiple utility pockets, and are executed in washed denim and garment-dyed cotton twill respectively. The selection is rounded out by accessories, such as caps and bucket hats, in a series of images that interrogates the idea of functionality; from archetypal Carhartt WIP items to those more typically associated with the hei

Gramicci Japan - Shorts

Sun it out today so what better time to look at the summer ready shorts from one of our favorite brands. Think of Gramicci , and there’s a good chance you’ll think of shorts. A pair of cleverly-designed cotton climbing shorts were the first thing Gramicci founder Mike Graham put the Gramicci name to all the way back in 1982, and 40 years later they’re still dedicated to making the best range of shorts possible. Some are big and baggy, some are sharp and sleek, some are made for the mountains, some are made for the sea—and all of them are made to last.  Here at Fat Buddha Store we started with the original—we’ve got the G-Shorts—a true classic. Back in the early 80s hard-wearing legwear made with rock climbing in mind was non-existent—so these cunning shorts, designed by Yosemite legend Mike Graham in his garage, were nothing short of revolutionary. Thanks to that diamond-shaped crotch gusset, legs were finally free to move, whilst that built-in nylon webbing belt kept the s

Haeckels - Brand Profile

  We continue to expand our grooming selection at Fat Buddha Store with our latest brand Haeckels . We are always trying to source eco friendly brands and Haeckels not only offer a great range of skin and self care products but they use all natural ingredients and are based locally within the UK.   Haeckels are driven by trying to solve the waste problem – be that through their use of waste natural resources in their products, or presenting packaging solutions to our community that are fully recyclable or compostable.      They use seaweed as the base for all of their products. That seaweed is picked by hand in Margate, UK. Why seaweed? Seaweed hydrates; it’s rich with valuable vitamins, minerals and amino acids; it’s anti-bacterial, skin rebuilding and anti-inflammatory; it’s all-natural, and all around us. Under licence, they harvest it by hand from the beach just steps away from their shop. What drives Haeckels forward is doing things differently and always evolving. What

CoBags - Brand Profile - Copenhagen Bags

With more and more people taking up cycling over the pandemic and fuel prices at a record high now is a good time to introduce COBAGS which offer a range of eco-friendly bags for convenience when cycling. With innovative design and problem focused mindsets they aim at developing products that make your life easier and safer with practical eco-friendly solutions. The brand began a summer day in Copenhagen. Being one of the leading bicycle cities in the world, the people of Copenhagen are no strangers to bicycling. It is said that most Copenhageners (yes that’s a word) can live their entire life on their bicycles.  However, on this fateful day Nikolai Gulmann noticed a pattern amongst  the  people biking by on Queen Louises bridge, one of the busiest bike paths in all of Copenhagen. He saw an abundance of “single use plastic bags” hanging from the handlebars of the bicycles. Heavy from being filled with groceries, the bags were knocking against the front wheel causing the
