Waste(twice) Submarina Jacket

—01. Black British Millerain
—02. Ample Pockets.
—03. Navy Check Lining

Words

While the more typical mountain or trail parka seems to be dominating the outerwear scene a bit these days, Japanese brand Waste(twice) have done an interesting variation of a similar jacket. Referencing a vintage fishing jacket, the cut of the Submarina is unique in that the shoulders are seamless. This makes movement in the area stress free and less restricted as well as more weather-proof. The finely woven oil cloth cotton Millerain fabric give it a nice texture and natural drape despite the many pockets. A corduroy lined hood and check flannel lining provide the cherry on top of a much less ubiquitous looking piece of outerwear.

Waste(Twice) Safari Shirt

—01. Safari style pockets and chest loop.
—02. 100% Cotton, Made in Japan.

Words

Superdenim have just recently received they're European exclusive delivery from Waste(twice). While quite a small selection is being offered, largely due to the tragic events that unfolded in Japan in March, the Safari jacket is definitely something I'd be eager to see in the flesh. It's boxier fit looks appealing, and it would surely look great worn as an overshirt above something striped, or something blue. While admittedly quite a light colour and weight for the winter season, an immediate purchase would certainly result in some nice layering options and colour palettes during the more forgiving fall months ahead.

Waste(twice) x The Superior Labour Basque Shoes

—01. Made in Spain.

Words

These woven jute espadrilles feature a lightweight construction and a rope sole. This current model has not changed significantly since the mid-19th century, making them a casual summer staple. The colours are simple and are accented by a single painted stripe across the front. A strong summer collaboration for these two brands.

Waste(twice) x Lowe Alpine Parka

—01. Gore-Tex Pro Shell outer.

Words

Waste(twice) have developed a nice selection of collaboration items in the last couple years. Often with a mountaineering feeling, the products also feature performance materials like the Gore-Tex Pro Shell on this mountain parka. I really like the two-tone colour combination here, offering a clean design with interesting details. Both the black and the electric blue are nice, and both are not easy to find.

—01. 60/40 Mountain Parka.
—02. New Era baseball cap.
—03. French boat shirt.

Words

Japanese brand Waste(twice) look to have another strong collection on their hands. While the brand isn’t one easily accessible for most of us, they continue to grow and thrive in Japan. These are a handful of the spring items that I particularly like.
