Brendan — Manager, Paddington Mens
Incu Staff
May 10, 2020

In the spirit of keeping connected while apart, we caught up with Brendan, Incu’s Paddington men’s store manager, who’s delved deep into the practice of yoga, self-care and the best at-home workouts.

Tell us a bit about yourself.

I’m the Paddington Incu Manager.

What have you been up to since the lockdown began?

I’ve still been working a bit in the background helping to try and get all of our online orders out in time. I’m somewhat of a home body as it is, and I like to start my day with some Yoga and lots of coffee. I’m always trying to set up the day with a good headspace. My cloud of a dog, Sumo, is loving going on an extra walkie every day and chasing me around the back courtyard during some arvo cardio sessions.

I’m really grateful to have such a supportive home network, two affectionate animals in the house for a cuddle and free time to cosy up with a herbal tea and a good book. I’ve really smashed through my to-read pile in the corner of my room. I’m currently reading Dance Dance Dance by Haruki Murakami.

Some records I have on high rotation in the morning during Yoga and chill time:

- Peripheral Vision by Turnover

- Disintegration by The Cure

- Only Boundaries by Balance and Composure

- The Smiths by The Smiths

- Sometimes by City and Colour

- Tigers Jaw by Tigers Jaw

My top picks for the afternoon workouts are:

- The Things We Carry by Have Heart

- One With The Underdogs by Terror

- Power In Numbers by Jurassic 5

- Void of Confusion by Warbrain

- Demo 19 by Speed (Aaron from customer care’s band)

- The Low End Theory by A Tribe Called Quest

I’ve also been following what some of my favourite local creatives have been doing during this time:

@silverandcoldjewellery

@nicole_draeger

@gingertaylorartist

@cheriebuttons

@jeswri

@_communique

@edgilj 

@stellarleuna 

@kbiljuh  

Brendan talked us through his top picks, with a mix of household names like Patagonia, Acne Studios, Comme Des Garcons, and French favourites A.P.C. As a self-proclaimed Nike head, Bren’s been collecting sneakers for eighteen years, so it’s no surprise that Nike made an appearance on his list. “Find a comfier footbed… I’ll wait.” 

All about quality, fit and fabric, Bren’s selection is a specially curated range of his favourites from the Incu online store.
