Rebuild by Needles Coach Jacket

01

Image

—01. 50% cotton, 50% polyester.

Words

The last few seasons have seen a real upswing in the popularity of the coach jacket style, but none have stood out as distinctly as this Rebuild by Needles version. Constructed from repurposed army surplus garments, and adorned with chest pockets, button plackets and name badges, it would be pretty tough to confuse this with any of the more overtly bland options available, by obvious comparison of course.

Needles Papillon Glasses – Samuel Sunglasses

01

Image

–01. Four colour options.

Words

Whether it's shoes, socks, hats, clothing, remade clothing or eyewear, Needles seem capable of producing just about anything at a high level. The Samuel model from the brand's Papillon glasses collection comes in four options and features flip up lenses. I don't think it was the designer's main point of reference, but I was instantly reminded of Ozzie Smith.

Words

The Needles Spring-Summer ’15 lookbook was recently released on the Nepenthes site, and features Keizo Shimizu’s customary reworkings of vintage, military and sportswear classics with his unique sensibility. There is also a sneak peek at a number of completely new styles from the Rebuild by Needles sub-line; the most outstanding of which are the hunting shirts that utilize a vast array of woodland, duck hunter and desert camouflage, just to name a few.

Rebuild by Needles M-65 x MA-1

—01. Constructed in Japan.

Words

One of our last deliveries of the season came from Needles and included this incredible jacket from the Rebuild collection. Mixing an M-65 with an MA-1 could go very wrong, but the Japanese brand have managed to create a unique, interesting and very wearable piece.

Rebuild by Needles Harris Tweed Rough Out Coats

01

Images

—01. Small.
—02. Large.

Words

These Rebuild by Needles pieces bear a strong resemblance to something we might see from Comme, but that doesn't take away from the great look and interesting re-imagining of the two garments put together. While there are also some jacket styles available, these layered long coats are especially beautiful, mixing different patterns, tones and textures for a very successful outcome.
