Menswear owes a lot to the armed forces. Clothes like parka and trench coat or bomber jacket were born for military use, but they are so ingrained in popular culture to bring the fashion designers to create their own version. Even today, the military is a source of inspiration for fashion. The Paracord, for example, is a material originally used as support in parachute lines of American soldiers during World War II. Today, in addition to being part of the standard equipment of the US Army, Paracord is used for many practical applications of survival and for the realization of many fashion items, including bracelets.
Lasko is an Italian project that adopts this material offering stylish and design accessories inspired by the lifestyle of travelers, sportsmen and outdoor in all its forms. Besides Paracord, bracelets are made with stainless steel shackles and pin waterproof, used in the sailing world as a system of junction between anchor and chain.
Lasko unisex bracelets are available in 7 different colors and 2 models, customizable with each other. In this post, for example, I wear a Simple Knot model, with a minimalist and simple design, coloring Candy Cane and with Cricket D (ie stretched); and a Weaved model, designed as a multipurpose tool also lifesaving once unrolled, coloring Overkill (multicolor) and with Cricket Bow (rounded). Besides these, other colors are available as Navy Blue, Brown, Walnut, Dark Green, Colonial Blue and Acid Purple. To find your size between 5 available (XS, S, M, L, XL) just take the measure of your wrist in centimeters without adding extra space: the product fits perfectly the wrist with a margin of ‘maneuver’ about 1-1.5 cm.
The bracelets are available on the Lasko Lifestyle, and on the occasion of the upcoming Holiday season, you can take advantage of a promotion that includes the purchase of two Simple Knot bracelets at a special price. A great gift idea!
