Words

It took a little while for Bedwin's Fall collection to arrive in shops outside of Japan but it's been worth the wait. I've been pleased to see that a couple of shops brought in one of my favourite pieces from the collection — the 'Alvin' chore coat. Made from indigo Japanese denim, the coat features subtle hickory stripes that give it a nice lighter tone of blue. This is complimented well by white stitching and a sand coloured leather collar. The pocket configuration is great and unlike many similar coats, the smaller buttons are a nice size and their variety is a nice nod to vintage versions.

Words

A navy sport coat is something of a staple in most wardrobes and a nice light-weight version is especially valuable this time of the year. By nature, the garment is something that can mix and pair up well with virtually everything with little or no effort — so it's the details in the "Johnny" Jacket, from Japanese label Bedwin, that make it so appealing. The pattern on the back of the collar and at the cuff are prime examples. Both great if you're wearing it a little more casually, or as a layer. Similar to songs by The Smiths, as this collection was named after, the brushed cotton jacket looks subtle enough at first but upon further inspection is filled with character.
