new era


Yankees-Satin-JacketI gave Alpha Industries a rough time on couple past posts for not changing the game as much on collabs as I think they could have.  In reality, it’s probably not their fault because they have the standard thing they do VERY well, and the companies they work with don’t want to deviate too far from that.

Although I’ll say this New Era collab looks like an unbranded satin NY Yankees jacket (pictured left), I think that’s the point.

¥36,750 ($421 USD) over at Hayabusa.


A simple offering from hat company New Era:

We’re so used to seeing full camouflage hats, it’s refreshing that New Era went with it just for embellishment.

¥4,725 ($61 USD) over at Japan’s Cap Collector One.


Notable items from heavily military influenced “Rise of the Seventh” traveling capsule collection:

Desert tiger strip long sleeve shirt  ¥19,950 ($255 USD) and hat ¥6,090 ($78) collaboration with Japanese brand Challenger

A very subtle camouflage on this collaboration with hat brand New Era.  It’s like the camouflage is just a same thread color texture woven into the fabric (click the picture to enlarge).  Very nice looking stuff. Long sleeve shirt ¥22,800 ($291 USD) , Hat ¥6,000 ($77 USD) , and Pants ¥19,800 ($253 USD).

Another subtle camo adorns most of the offerings in this bag collab with Japanese brand Head Porter.  I’m not sure I care for the bastardized PALS loops, but I suppose they might work well for grabbing or tying something else onto them.

This collection will be shown at Pop-up Stores at the following locations:

Tokyo: 9/15 ~ 9/30 at Stussy Harajuku Chapt
New York: 10/5 ~ 10/14 at Stussy NYC
