Rebuild by Needles Hooded Sweatshirt

—01-02. Made in Japan.

Words

The flannel shirts and olive drab pieces are certainly the more common models in the Needles Rebuild lineup but these hooded sweatshirts are my choice for a wearable and innovative reworking and assemblage of pre-owned clothing pieces.

Needles Rebuild BDU Mods Parka

Words

The Rebuild project by Needles continuously offers interesting and ultimately unique pieces of clothing. While a lot of the items are a little too tricky for my tastes, there's something about the Mods Parka that feels just right. With so much going on, the multiple panels, tones, and fabric variations somehow make more sense on a larger scale, and while I'm probably not ready to pull the trigger yet, I'm sure plenty of others are little more brave with their outerwear choices.

Rebuild by Needles Ribbon Flannels

—01. Remade in Japan.

Words

Our latest Needles delivery included a handful of items from their Rebuild range. The Ribbon Flannel combines a single vintage shirt with strips of fabric from a selection of others, creating an interesting aesthetic with an array of plaid patterns. Each one is different, in its colour and proportions, which makes for a truly unique garment.

Rebuild by Needles Western Shirt

—01. Reassembled in Japan.

Words

The Rebuild by Needles collection has grown this fall to include a couple of new shirt styles. The Ribbon Flannel was the first in the series and while it's one I quite like, it may be a little wild for some people. The Rebuild Western Shirt, however, might be a more wearable option, and it still offers the unique patchwork look the brand has become known for.

Rebuild by Needles Fatigue Pants

01. Made in Japan.

Words

I've seen a lot of the jacket and shirt models from the Rebuild by Needles line, but I haven't seen many bottoms. This pair of fatigue pants made out of fatigue shirts is a particularly good example of how Needles can take something classic and turn it into something avant garde. The tasteful use of multiple tones adds a lot of contrast and these fatigue pants are a great option for a pair that are totally unique.

Rebuild by Needles Vest

—01. Each vest has a different configuration.
—02. 50% cotton / 50% Nylon.

Words

The Rebuild by Needles project is an especially interesting one. With so many military inspired brands and products available, it isn't easy to create something unique. By taking apart, and rebuilding the garments with the 50/50 olive fabric, it provides a one-off piece with interesting pockets and details, in a very wearable piece.
