With the colder July weather forcing us to spend a bit more time indoors, we finally got around to completing our latest mixtape: Comeback Kid Glacial Groove Mixtape. This particular mix came together over a bottle of cheap red, and while it starts off slowly it quickly crescendos into a contagious dance collection of our latest fave tracks: Lorde, Justin Timberlake, Chic, Daft Punk and more.

Hailing from our neighbours across the seas in New Zealand, Sly Guild is the latest label to join Comeback Kid. We’ve picked up a handful of their rad easy-to-wear tees and 5-panel caps that are now available online at Comeback Kid over HERE. Stay tuned for an interview with the designers of Sly Guild to be featured here on the blog in the next few days.
It is with much excitement that we bring these men’s street snaps to you from Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia held in Sydney this month. We didn’t make it up this year due to commitments in Melbourne so instead we had our good friend and fashion blogger Jamie Wdziekonski from Oh Jamie step up and take some amazing shots for us. Thanks Jamie!
Let the fashion inspiration begin:
Nike Free Runs have exploded on the streets lately, and this pair nails it with a rad pair of yellow/purple socks. Hands down the most comfortable pair of sneakers I’ve ever worn.
Camo power continues! We love this camo cap with ying-yang sign motif badge. I swear the ying yang sign will never get old.
Something about this top reminds us of The Flintstones and we’re definitely not complaining!
We’re addicted to a patterned sock at the moment and we’re pretty sure this dude is too.
Seriously cool Supreme pseudo digi-camo-polka dot jacket.
Models working on their post-show off-duty pouts with bonus quilted jacket for the win.
The detail on this leather jacket blew us away. Zig zagging zips and suede shoulder detail. Epic.
Paisley print perfection.
Very cool wide brimmed hat with leaf pattern.
Vibrant purple shirt with paneled Aztec like pattern. Seems even the photographers upped their game this season.
Love this leather backpack and vintage style hawaiian shirt.
Another killer shirt with what appears to be cheetah/leopard print!
Shout out to Jamie for doing such a great job!
Today we’re going to take a closer look at a Comeback Kid staple, the CBK Street Chino. A slightly tapered chino that isn’t too skinny or too loose, it’s what we reckon is a perfect, everyday pant. It comes in 4 colourways: Khaki, Sand, Dark Purple and Rust. At $49, it’s a steal!
All these images were dutifully sourced from the world wide web of Tumblr!
It’s been what seems like a lifetime between blog posts but we’re still here. Our latest mood board captures the cooler the weather and the need for a few more layers during the. (RIP Summer. See you next year) In other news we’ve got new CBK, new CBK vintage and new season deliveries coming soon to the online store.
