WTAPS B-9 Flight Jacket


Another solid offering from WTAPS fall/winter 2012 collection:

WTAPS sure knows how to make a good looking modern military jacket, while keeping the vintage aesthetic.

I am unsure why this is called the “gulf” jacket.  Gulf war? Persian gulf? Gulf of Mexico? Either way it’s a pretty badass looking jacket.

In addition to olive drab (pictured) it is also available in black from GIP-Store and Authorized dealers for ¥61,950 ($773 USD)


WTAPS AL-1 Flight Jacket


New for Fall/Winter 2012:

Source – Honeyee

I had not heard of the AL-1 Flight Jacket, so I googled it.  Not much information on the internet about it, but from what I gather the original ones were made after WWII.  It’s definitely and interesting design, but I really can’t stand bottom pockets you where can’t put your hands in at an angle.

Available at select WTAPS stockists for ¥74,550 ($933 USD).


The result of a collab between WTAPS and Timex:

Yawn… all I can say is it better be cheap.  Essentially they took the  Timex Camper model watch (pictured right), and threw the word WTAPS on it.

The Timex Camper is going for $25 on Amazon, and something tells me that WTAPS logo is going to demand quite the premium.

UPDATE: The price will be ¥12,600 ($158 USD) *smh*


WTAPS latches onto one of natures best disruptive patterns:

Although leopard print is considered camouflage, I normally wouldn’t blog about it.  In this case though it’s interesting because it’s applied to a military cut of shirt and pants.  I wouldn’t buy it personally, but I believe the print is subtle enough to be wearable for most people.

Available at GIP-STORE  – ¥23,100 ($291 USD) for the shirt, ¥35,700 ($450 USD) for the pants.

Go on.. get your Mowgli on.


WTAPS Gets Their Olive Drab On

Price at 25,200 ($320 USD) for the shirt, Pants 26,250 ($334 USD), and Hat ($94 USD).

The thing I like about WTAPS is the pieces are always quite subtle.  They don’t normally use camouflage, and the branding is kept to a minimum.
