Academy Clothes at St Ives
Just as my other half and i were winding our day down at St Ives in Cornwall, my boy mentioned that he wanted a pair of sunglasses. Earlier on we stumbled across a menswear store and thought it would be a good idea to have a gander. Little did i know that i would stumble across what can only be described as a treasure-trove of menswear, I haven't come across a store that was this well stocked in a long, long time! Carhartt, A.P.C, Edwin Jeans, Retrosuperfuture, Ray-Ban, Stussy.. the list is absolutely endless. The store was founded by a brother and sister team that definitely have a good eye for what's on trend at the moment, I had a brief chat with one of them and they actually trek all the way to London to do their buying. They had one of the most impressive Porter collections i have ever seen.. So if you happen to be in St Ives make sure to check out Academy Clothes just by the harbour. Alternatively you can check out their brilliant Online Store. Apologies if the pictures are not as good as they usually are, we had to rush to get a coach back to the town we were staying at which landed up not showing up till an hour later anyway.. Grrr. Scroll down below the break for some more pictures and a huge shout out to James for letting me take some pictures of his beautiful store.
