Fashionable lads have a new haven for style thanks to Contra on Charlotte Street. The boutique offers a curated selection of European threads that are clean and contemporary while still being wearable. French brand Études blends nonchalant chicness with a casual coolness, while Soulland brings some fresh Scandinavian artisanship to the fore. YMC offers functional fits and wearable styles, while Lou Dalton (Contra being its only Australian stockist) is a London label that offers clean cuts and quality materials. The clothing is complemented by a range of accessories such as umbrellas, wallets, watches and totes as well as stylish publications and shoes from the likes of Doc Martens and Christian Kimber. Be sure to check in seasonally for new threads, or keep one eye on the Contra website for updates on new arrivals.
