Pretty and functional and hardwearing and down right covetable. Good As Gold is proud to exclusively stock AANDD in New Zealand. See what we did there? 

AANDD was founded in 2010 by designer Adam Davidson. The line of leather goods is designed and made in the USA and Mexico. The minimalist aesthetic, which favours discrete functionality and unconventional detailing, has earned AANDD a steady following among influential independent retailers and their clients. Now in its fourth year, we’re stoked to be the home of the quality brand in New Zealand. Using supple leathers from French tannery Dupire, brass hardware and quality canvas and combed cotton for lining, this brand doesn’t let any details go amiss. Check them out in stores and online.

Attention everyone with a head (we hope that’s everyone). It is time to channel your inner-Pharrell and get on the hat train that is boarding at GAG. Our buddies from Brixton have dropped us a collection of headwear for red heads, grey heads, frizzy heads, spotty, round, uneven, good-looking, blonde, freckle heads and more. So if you’ve got a head, we have hats galore for it.

Brixton is known for its beautiful craftsmanship and timeless styles. The three friends behind the brand take inspiration from music, culture and the people around them. This drop features beanies, snapbacks, Panama’s, Fedora’s and more! With the sun deciding to actually come out AND hang around longer during the day you’ve got a pretty good reason to need one of these essentials. Also remember, what is a bad hair day without a hat? Just a really bad hair day. So come in store or check’em out online, one size fits most – so if you happen to have acquired the nickname ‘moon head’ during your school years, hopefully we can accommodate.

First released in the 1990’s, the Nike Air Command Force was worn up and down the courts by some of the era’s biggest icons. The style features a fully functioning Air-Fit system that inflates a bladder of air around the ankle for maximum support, comfort and impact protection. This White/Black-Wolf Grey-Volt colour way was made famous by Woody Harrelson‘s character, Billy Hoyle in the 1992 sports movie White Men Can’t Jump.

The number 6 is considered a perfect number. Maybe that’s why No.6 is called No.6 – maybe it’s not. The point is, their shoe collection is pretty perfect and seeing as feet aren’t… this is really great news. So please, put your hands and feet together for the newest brand in GAG’s foot department – No.6. Hailing from New York, you haven’t truly experienced a clog until you’ve slipped your tootsies into a pair of these masterpieces – Just putting it out there, these guys know how to ‘werk’ a wooden sole. Going above and beyond your wildest clog dreams No.6 is constantly pushing and reimagining new ways to serve up the humble clog that we all know and love. They’ve got us struttin’ in closed toe, open toe, mid heels, high heels, loafer clogs, woven clogs and motorbike boot inspired clogs! All made with high quality, water resistant leather *SPLAT* goes your brain “Can I get a clean up on aisle 6”.

Because these guys don’t like to blow their own trumpet (in fact it’s virtually impossible to find them talking about themselves ANYWHERE) we are going to blow it for them; HEY EVERYBODY, ever been to clog-heaven and hung out with clog wearing angels and played in a magical forest with an abundance of damn-fine trees that the angels use to make unreal clogs with? No?!? Well get yourself to GAG and experience all of the above, minus the magical forest because that’s just crazy talk. If you are afraid of angels but have a love of clogs, jump online and check’em out there too.

Every so often (well quite often actually) a shoe comes along (can we call this a shoe? More like a marvel of fashion and technology) that we all loose our shit over. Those colours, that asymmetrical lacing, all that perforated premium leather. Them there shoes are amazing.

The Blaze of Glory has seen some reworking recently and this has got to be our favourite. The sport technical uppers with perforated leather are such a perfect combo. Paired with the Tritonic sole and neoprene lining, we don’t expect them to stick around long. Check ‘em out online, in store in Wellington and the black colour way isis on its way to Auckland as we speak!

CHAPTER

With mind-fizzing excitement we’d like to tell you a bit about our newest brand to GAG; Chapter doesn’t like to talk it prefers to be a brand of action. Their garments are executed with a very deliberate intention. Lines are bold, aesthetics are purposeful and their forms have function. Every piece fits the way it was made to fit. Chapter’s style walks steadily down the centre line of smart & casual with unwavering balance. Much thought has gone into this collection, yet it looks to the untrained eye ‘simple’. It is a collection for guys who want to look like they think, but not look ‘over-thought’. It has a real presence at GAG and the craftsmanship is absolute. The outstanding amount of balance in each piece makes us feel drunk and we have utter admiration for their ability to hybrid suit pants and drawstring track-pants into the kind of pant that you’ve only dreamt of…until now. Introduction over! Come online or in store to get better acquainted and experience Chapter’s wizardry for yourself.

}
          

Having Kowtow in the store is like being around somebody really good looking, really smart and really, really nice - You’re just constantly blinded by the halo / aura of goodness beaming from it. We don’t mind though, because unlike a perfect person you can wear Kowtow and pretend you’re really good, smart and really, really nice. Their latest drop at GAG is really great. As per usual it’s all ridiculously easy to wear – every piece should be dubbed ‘birthday suit’ because that’s exactly what it’s like if not better. From its bold patterns, stand out geometric panels to it’s elastic waistbands for those of us coming out of Winter - EVERYTHING is made with certified fair trade organic something – because that’s how Kowtow rolls. There’s a dress you can wear back to front – for those of you struggling to adjust to daylight savings. It doesn’t get more perfect than this. Cut yourself a big ol’slice of guilt free clothing – honestly if Kowtow were edible it would be gluten & sugar free but taste like a thousand melted moro bars covered in smashed up tim-tams and popping candy, dipped in a chocolate you’ve never even heard of (but it’s foreign and delicious). It’s a yummy brand in every way. So if you want a serious taste of goodness, come get your gobble on in store and online.
