An interesting collab inspired by vintage american uniforms:

Very interesting use of materials.  The above bomber style jacket is especially interesting.

Lots more pictures over at the Dr Romanelli blog.

Available exclusively at the Head Porter atelier Tokyo pop-up store on November 27th.

No word on prices, but you can be assured this stuff will not come cheap just knowing the two brands involved.


The Gamecocks, a South Carolina football team debuted this custom uniform yesterday at their game:

I’ve never really been the biggest fan of digital camouflage, but at least this application is something different.

I wonder if there is/was any concern that the nature of camouflage will create visibility problems when trying to complete passes?


Street style icon Nick Wooster talks briefly about trends in mens fashion:

Some interesting points he brings up in the video:

  • Uniforms and military inspired clothing will never go out of style because of their rich history.
  • Camouflage is a paradox because it is meant to make you less visible but on its own it is quite bold.
  • The concept of mixing old and new materials is going to be around for a while.

Can’t say I disagree with any of those.  I am a big fan of vintage camouflage, and try to pick up jackets and bags at surplus stores whenever I come across ones that I like.  Mixing materials is another thing I’ve always been a fond of, not only in fashion but in design in general.  The key though is to find the correct balance of new and old.
