Each month one member of The Urban List team will be sharing their current obsessions, and—shock—not all of it’s edible!
This month, Brisbane’s Marketing Manager, Phil Swan shares his must-haves and lust-haves with the world; from sneeks, to burgers, doughies and some very hairy furniture, here’s everything we’re loving this month.
Adidas Stan Smith Sneaker
Love the crisp, clean lines on the recently re-launched Adidas Stan Smith. There are already a thousand different colour options, and I can safely say I require all of them. White kicks are going to be big heading into summer.
Norse Projects Socks
Nothing beats the feeling on pulling on a fresh pair of socks. I’m loving a good print or stripe at the moment and these babies from Apartment are the business; roll those cuffs and watch the heads turn.
Mr. Simple’s Blake Grey Marle Jumper
It can be hard to commit to a sweater in Brisbane. With the temperature constantly fluctuating it's much easier to unzip than to pull off a whole sweater—lazy, I know. But when it does drop below 15 degrees, Mr. Simple know their way around knitwear!
Buffalo Trace Bourbon Whiskey
Thank you, The Gresham for introducing me to this sweet, sweet gem of a bourbon. Now easily my favourite bourbon, for old-fashioneds or simply served over one big ice rock.
Classic BB Burger
You would think with so many burgers in Brisbane that our pinnacle had been reached. But then Ben's Burgers came along, and now no one else’s burgers really compare? Do I like the bun best? Or the medium-cooked beef? Or the mixture of ketchup, mustard, and mayo? It's probably the perfect combo’ of all of them, and now my stomach is grumbling...
Street Machine Tee
New to the scene, Ludlow Common is Gold Coast-based and producing short runs of design focused tees. I’m really enjoying the material quality and artwork, which makes me look infinitely cooler than I really am.
Flat Top Sunnies by RetroSuperFuture
You're looking at tortoiseshell's #1 fan right here. Forever wanting a black pair of shades that didn't make me look super pasty, these flat tops from RetroSuperFuture at Oki & Oro have this rad "dipped" look about them that make me have the best of both worlds.
Nike Free Trainer 3.0 V3
I'm a big believe in "all the gear and no idea", so when I hit the gym, I've gotta make sure I'm decked in the latest shit. These Nike Free trainers are high on my list. They’re super light, comfy, and just look rad? Sold.
At The Drive-In Doughnut
As a kid I was forever claiming that doughnuts were my favourite food. I did grow up and move on to much more adult foods like, chicken parmigianas, but the doughnut will forever be in my heart. In particular the At The Drive-In Doughnut from Doughnut Time.
Replica Eames DCW Dining Chair
Because who doesn't want a freaking $700 chair that's covered in cow hair? #lifegoals. Thanks Matt Blatt.
