Why does no one stock Beheavyer over here? It’s got the oversized thing going on, the hidden zips, tone-on-tone palettes and bundles of loops to dangle carabiners from (even though no one ever does). It’s all perfect nomad swank with a splash of Zardoz. Seems to me they’d be a great fit for a store like This Thing of Ours.
And yet, Beheavyer has zero presence in the UK of Isles. I guess it’s got a stupid name. Beheavyer. Be heavyer. No one wants to be heavier? Plus, with brand’s like Goldwin, Eastlogue, Norbit, Snow Peak (and 50 others) chasing the backpack-bother’s dime, the competition is real.
Still, in spite of (or probably because of?) Beheavyer’s absence from local outlets, I’m a fan.
Tell me this t-shirt doesn’t do it for you? And here it is is off-white.
It’s a piece is what it is.
Toggle at the hem, couple of different fabrics in the mix, the ‘all-important’ carabiner loops and a dinky zipper: what more does the pretend adventurer need? Nothing, that’s what. A garment like this will make any laptop-peering, cafe-dwelling, pseudo-outdoorsman look like he’d be straight up Scafell Pike if he didn’t have a hard deadline for twelve gifs.
It goes without saying that, if at the time of reading there’s now a UK stockist, please feel free to reduce the credibility factor of everything I’m saying by around 35%.
