Spring is starting to melt in Oz, which is a very good time to hit refresh on the wardrobe. And a brand Stab is rather fond of, who we believe will make this process easier (and more aesthetically pleasing), is Barney Cools. Here are some ways to spend your money that you probably can’t claim on tax. Unless you can. And, if so, god bless you.

Barney Cools August sneak peek 6

SS Tees

The Homie Tee has the oversized look down and conversational prints keep things breezy without being too over-the-top. They’re fun, but not unruly. Like life in spring. More here.

LS Tees

Long sleeves have enjoyed a real resurgence since 2014 – and with good reason. You can wear them solo, or when things are cooler, layer over a short sleeve tee. Spring’s about those in-between pieces that won’t sweat you but also won’t fall over in a light afternoon breeze. The LS tee delivers on every wind direction. More here.

Barney Cools’ layers offer more than just protection from the elements. The crews and knits are super warm and soft, and their jacketing is sharp. Think in the least pretentious way: Australia via LA via Berlin. More here.

Kids wear shorts, men wear hard-wearing denim and chinos. Act accordingly. More here.

Viva la dad hat! Thanks to the upswing in love for sports caps, there’s now a plethora of different variations available. But if you really want high vibes, then you won’t do much better than B. Cools’ offerings. The denim number featuring an orca is particularly good. More here.
