Comme des Garçons Ganryu Coaches Jacket

01

Image

—01. Made in Japan.

Words

The use of various striped shirting fabrics is nothing new for Comme des Garçons. However, using these fabrics to piece together this snap button coaches jacket offers a fresh take. The Ganryu collection features a playful aesthetic overall, falling somewhere between Junya Watanabe's namesake label and Homme's more classic styling.

In classic Comme des Garçons style this shirt features a beautiful striped cotton fabric, with a twist. The front of the shirt includes a second layer, creating a subtle mismatch, while keeping the design quite wearable overall.

Wtaps League Cap

—01. Polyester blend.

Words

There are lots of incredible versions of retro-inspired ball caps out there, and this Wtaps offering is an especially attractive one. Made out of an unusual polyester blend – for this style of cap at least – the League Cap features an embroidered logo and leather sweatband; keeping it true to mid-century professional models.

Post O'Alls Linden Jacket

—01-04. The Linden Jacket in Navy.

Words

This happens all the time. Something I've overlooked, usually something that's not typically a style I go for, appears on my radar, and the temptation to try something different becomes just that little bit stronger. While the Linden from Post O'Alls might not be the type of jacket most often associated with the brand, it's also not the most widely seen either, and makes for something a little more out of the ordinary. Who am I kidding? It's a blue cotton jacket, with pockets and a zip. It is nice though.

Chup Socks

01

Info

—01. Native American inspired patterns.

Words

Inspired by nature, Chup makes some beautifully crafted socks. Unique and colourful, they design various motifs such as patterns, family emblems and textiles. Made in Japan, the complicated design of each pair makes the production of the weave process very slow, adjusting size and scales depending on the design specifically crafted for that model. The attention to detail is really incredible while exclusively producing all products with recycled threads called Eco Yarn. Certainly a company to keep an eye on.
