—01. Made in Japan.

Words

Needles always offer a diverse range of products, often mixing traditional Japanese references with 70s-tinged Americana. The Spring-Summer '14 collection is no different and the BB Jacket combines a sportswear-inspired silhouette with a unique dragon embroidery detail that gives it a more delicate, luxurious feel.

White's Boots Pole Climber Oxford for Nepenthes

—01. Smooth Cow Leather.
—02. Made in Spokane, WA.

Words

I love a work oxford that doesn't tone down the profile they borrow from their higher-cut counterparts. The chunky design and heavy duty Vibram 2021 soles on this Nepenthes collaboration, keep these shoes looking rugged, while the lower height eases the time in which it takes to get them on and off.

Nepenthes Hasegawa Journal: EG 19th Century BD Shirt

01

Image

—01. A firm favourite.

Words

As non-Japanese speakers might expect, Google translate makes a total mess of this conversation between Daiki Suzuki and Popeye fashion director, Akio Hasegawa. However, if you're a fan of the Brooks Brothers-inspired, single needle staple – a constant in the Engineered Garments mainline and Workaday collections since both began, and an item that started life as a Nepenthes New York product in the days before EG – it's well worth deciphering.

Needles Arrow Down Parka

01

Image

—01. Made in Japan.

Words

Sometimes Needles refines a piece of Americana to such a point it borders on exquisite. This parka, with its quilted down interior and deer leather reinforced pockets, gets my vote for one of the casual coats of the season – if there was such an award.
