It’s been a slightly tumultuous time for New Zealand label I Love Ugly. They’ve had to close stores and sling wares at half the price, due to the forced hand of late suppliers. To their requisite credit, they continue to exhibit a level of brand transparency rivaled by few. Through each tribulation, the brand lays its cards on the table and reminds us that at the end of the day, they’re still just a bunch of dudes grinding like the rest of us. It resonates. Fans respect the hustle. And that’s verified through I Love Ugly’s enduring prosperity.
Currently, they seem as strong as ever. Back to their roots. Focussing heavily on meticulous attention to detail and consideration of fit, for a necessity as old as time. Covering your junk. At the moment, you can score three pairs of pants for three hunge’. We’ve taken the guesswork out and selected our picks worth adding to cart.
