Bob Greens is a men’s designer clothing store situated down Hull’s Princes Avenue.

Stocking a wide range of brands such as Farah, Ma.strum, Clarks Originals, Superga, Saucony Originals, Marshall Artist, Edwin and tuktuk, they’re the perfect place to go for smart, casual wear.

“We’ve been here five years,” Manager Luke Burazin tells us. “We sell everything from indie casual day wear, to stuff that’s perfect for a night out.”

The store stocks sizes XS to XXXL, with waist sizes going up to a 36. Meanwhile, their shoe range covers sizes 6-10.

“If need be, we can order in other sizes for our customers,” Luke adds.

We popped in to find out what their top picks are for this season.

Firstly, Luke appears in this black Victorinox long sleeve polo shirt [above].

“We’re the only stockist of Victorinox in Hull,” he tells us. “They created the Swiss Army Knife.”

Paired with a classic pair of Edwin E55 Regular Tapered Jeans, this dark yet smart outfit is ideal for the transitional period between winter and spring.

Next up is this smart casual look combining the Saucony SS17 collection with a brand new Edwin Bomber Jacket.

“Edwin plays a huge part in denim history,” enthuses self-dubbed denim snob Luke. “There’s Levi’s, then there’s Edwin.”

According to Luke, bomber jackets are going to be huge during spring and summer: “Loads of the designer labels are bringing out a couple of bombers.”

Bob Greens have a huge range of Edwin T-shirts in stock, starting from just £30.

Edwin Bomber Jacket: £150 / Edwin ED 55 Regular Tapered CS Night Blue Denim Rinsed 11 oz. AW16: £80 / Edwin Red Dot White T-shirt SS17: £30 / Saucony Originals Shadow Suede and Ripstop Upper Teal and Blue SS17: £85

The next outfit is modelled by Karl Jones, who finds that Bob Greens stock great brands to suit his slender figure.

“The ED 85 jean is the skinniest Edwin go. It’s in-between a skinny and a slim fit jean. I would say a super slim.”

He pairs this with a long sleeve Farah shirt and Clarks Originals Beeswax Jink shoes. “These are a timeless classic,” he smiles. “They just get better with age.”

“This just came in this week, but I’ve already bought it,” chuckles Luke. The AFIELD jumper is a 100% crew neck navy knit.

To finish off the look, Luke slips on a pair of Clarks Originals Wallabees.

“I would wear this outfit to afternoon drinks, perhaps on Hull’s Real Ale Trail,” he laughs.

After a quick change, Karl returns in a summery ensemble.

“This Farah cotton check shirt is lightweight and great for a warmer day,” he explains. “Meanwhile, these Clarks Originals Desert Treks are a heavy hitting cult classic.

“They’re the creme de le creme of Clarks,” he adds.

“Our jeans may seem expensive, but they’re such great quality,” Luke continues. “You really get what you pay for when it comes to denim.”

This next outfit features another pair of Edwin ED 55s, partnered with a Marshall Artist T-shirt from their SS17 collection.

“Wearing leather shoes like these white Superga really dresses up an outfit,” Luke points out. “It makes it feel a bit more special compared to the popular canvas style Cotu Classics we also sell.”

Lastly, Karl tries on this traditional white shirt and black jeans combination.

“The thing with Farah is that it fits really well, they really are true to their size. I don’t get the bagginess that I do with other brands.”
