With spring in full bloom and summer on the way, it’s time to refresh your wardrobe! The team at Swagger rounded up the best in spring fashion – from everything to light jackets, socks, accessories and more, we’ve got you covered.
There are few Brands that are still run by the founding family. There are even fewer that actually cut and sew the clothes the sell and one of the them is LC King. For 108 years this clothing brand out of Tennessee has been making authentic and rugged work wear that lasts. True to their heritage but updated by fit, their clothing collection of Jeans, Jackets and Overalls should be in your closet.
Their Iconic Brown Duck Chore Jacket – Lot 46LC – is the jacket memories are made in. Put it together with their new Olive Duck 5-Pocket Jean and you’re ready to hit the town. Utilitarian in its approach to style, their classic fit is one that makes anyone look tasteful in public. Authentic Work Wear fabrics such as Hickory Stripe, Fisher Stripe, Brown and olive Duck Cloth and Indigo Denim are part of the broad selection.
Their Heritage collection is 100% USA sourced in the components the factory cuts and sews. Fourth generation owner – Jack King – not only runs the factory but also participates in the sewing of the garment often found seated making suspenders for their low back overalls or setting cuffs on jackets.
LC King is a clothing brand that has stood the test on time. True to its roots in Rural Appalachia, this secret of Tennessee is one that this publication could not resist. Clothing brands come and go, more often go… but this one is here and will be here to stay for another generation.

Spring forward with cool socks
Ice cream, bourbon, beer, ketchup, hot sauce – not the flavors, but the awesome sock designs, all come from Sock Footage.
In August 2019, Marisa Sheff launched Sock Footage, an online company that sells boutique socks to the customer, while also offering the customer a complimentary pair to give away to the less fortunate.
She says that most people are unaware that socks are an item most in demand with the homeless, but least donated.
According to Sheff, the mission of her company is focused on social responsibility, “to empower individuals to engage in acts of kindness as a by-product of simple, everyday sock purchases.”
Donations are based on the honor system – where the customer can decide to give the pair away themselves, or ask Sock Footage to do so on their behalf.
“For me, it’s about reconnecting with community and the opportunity to see the impact of your donation,” she says. Sock Footage continues to deliver socks to one of their partner charities, Ve’ahavta, who has a mobile outreach van in Toronto distributing much-needed supplies to those living on the streets. “We truly believe, and have witnessed firsthand, that being involved in the donation process has the power to change a life, while touching the lives of those in need,” says Sheff.
Swagger salutes Ms Sheff on her efforts to “sock it” to the cold feet of the homeless, and make wearing socks fun again.
Leonisa Makes Sure Your “junk” Always Stays Cozy
If you ever wondered what it’s like to look forward to putting on amazingly fitted underwear, pay attention to Leonisa, the Colombian garment company. They make underwear, boxers, briefs and trunks for dudes who love comfort and style.
They use high-quality soft DuraFit fabric, a markedly different feel than your typical rough materials from off-the-rack department store underwear. It has the feel of a custom-made underwear, because the fabric hugs the skin gently on all the right parts. (Plus, the underwear includes an in-woven middle pouch that comfortably holds “the boys” in place.)
So, no more “ride ups”, needless shifting, or chafing. Yes, it’ll cost you several times more than the generic pack of four, but it’s totally worth it.
