1. What is the inspiration behind Burkman Brothers?
Our love of travel bears a strong influence in the Burkman Bros collection. Each season we travel to a new and different destination in the world which serves as inspiration for the collection. We love to really get into the heart of a place, to find out what makes a destination special. We often seek out vintage and local textiles, as we incorporate these various prints and fabric treatments into our collection. Burkman Bros fuses a casual American sensibility with a well-traveled point of view. Our bold prints, original bespoke fabrics and classic menswear essentials emphasize originality, style, comfort and ease.
2. How involved are you guys in the creative process?
We are wholeheartedly involved. The brand would not exist if we were not.
3. What do you see for the future of Burkman Brothers?
Our brand is lifestyle-driven. For example, we’d love to develop an amazing accessories collection – bags, sunglasses, footwear etc…
4. We hear that you guys are world travelers. What is your favorite place to go, and what inspired you there?
We just returned from Bangkok. We love Bangkok because it is a bustling city that is a bold mix of the exotic and the familiar, the old and the new, the discovered and the yet-to-be found. Bangkok has all of the elements that made for a remarkable inspiration trip.

Havaianas is known for making the world’s best flip flop, straight from the beaches in Brazil and available worldwide. São Paulo, Brazil is the predominant city in the graffiti world with the largest number of works, and considered one of the top cities in the world to appreciate street art and Havaianas has found a way for you to sport some of this killer art. We are stoked about the union between Havaianas and urban art, and have these limited edition flip-flops with prints from 3 renowned graffiti artists: Highraff, Speto and Zezão. Havaianas are a must have for the summer months, whether paired with denim, your favorite boardshorts from Onia, Sundek or Olasul; or rocking shorts from Burkman Bros. Throw on your Ray-Bans or Persol shades and fill a Wm. J. Mills & Co. duffel with some tanks and Fred Perry polos and you’re ready for a rockin’ beach weekend.
With a strong graphic design influence, Highraff blends graffiti, illustration, cartoon language and psychedelic art, which results in organic forms with striking color combinations. His inspirations mainly come from natural forms such as the sun, moon, stars and plants.
Born in São Paulo, Speto is one of the artists responsible for the originality of Brazilian graffiti. He developed a unique style that carries hip hop elements and a strong influence of woodcut.
Zezão became famous for expressing his art in the sewer galleries in the city of São Paulo. It was a way of bringing color and life to forgotten places. During his career, he developed two types of art: the first remits to abstract calligraphy; the second employs abstract and colorful drawings.
GQ’s obsessed and so are we. Need new gear for the beach? Lightning Bolt offers great swim trunks and sick graphic tees and tanks emblazoned with the bolt and we’ve got a great stash to choose from. Pair ‘em with your favorite jeans, havaianas, some Burkman Bros. bracelets and killer shades and you’re good to go!
The California classic board short is back with a vengeance and no matter what your favorite color is we’ve got you covered. Whether lying in the sun or riding the swells, no guy’s closet should be lacking these killer trunks. We offer an array of solids, plaids and patterns. We also offer the capsule collection from Neil Barrett and you can score his version in CAMO! Pair these sick board shorts with some Havaianas, Raybans and Burkman Bros bracelets and tanks and you’re good to go! Don’t just take our word for it T – The New York Times Style Magazine, Esquire and the LA Times concur.
We coined the term WEAR WORLDWIDE here as Doug & Ben are always inspired by their travels. This season is no different and the locale this time is the island of Kaua’i. We say ALOHA and the bros have brought us a huge variety of tanks in colors and stripes, all cut to show off the results of your tropical rock climbing or simply hours in the gym. Pair those tanks with original jacquard, striped and printed shorts and arm yourself with a handful of bracelets and you’re ready for the tropics, the Hudson river, the Hamptons or the Santa Monica pier.
If you do not have a chino in your wardrobe, you should probably fix that. Start off with khaki because it works with a variety of options on top. This pair by Burkman Bros is perfect if you are searching for a pant that is functional. It suits that rugged man who is outdoors and on the run. The subtle detailing on the garment will put an extra bounce in your step. Roll the ankles and rock on.
