Another collab between the two:


I posted about the N-3B parka they worked on together a few days ago.

The ¥44,100 ($523 USD) collab again looks startlingly similar to the standard M-51 field coat that Alpha Industries already sells for only $176.  Basically all they did with mastermind was remove the upper pockets and add a few sew on patches.

I’m a big fan of collaborations when it brings out the best of both brands, but if it’s just basic things being changed, and as a result tripling the price because of the “exclusivity”… I am not on board.

ZOZOVilla has these if you’re interested.


Collaborate with Japan – triple the price:


The ¥48,300 ($574 USD) collab looks startlingly similar to the standard N-3B parka that Alpha Industries already sells for only $176.

You have to ask yourself, is a tonal skull and crossbones applique on each elbow worth $398 to you?  Is it?!

If you answered yes to that question they by all means head over to ZOZOVilla and pick one up before all the rich Japanese dudes get them.
