Uniform Wares continues deliver well crafted timepieces which highlight their minimalistic design approach. The 300 series happens to be the British brand’s first-ever chronograph watch and we’re really impressed with the offering. The watch looks great on the wrist, and for the spring and summer seasons ahead, we’re really digging this specific finish which features a satin brushed finish with a tan strap made from Italian leather.
From Parisian label Kitsune comes an exceptionally well-designed collection for Fall 2011 entitled, “Brokeback Mountain”. Though we initially weren’t sure what the folks had in mind when choosing this title, checking out the offerings shows it definitely takes some inspiration from the movie among other things. “The collection itself beyond the inspiration and title could be construed as that of a “refined urban cowboy,” with some definitive workwear pieces you’d find on a ranch in addition to well-tailored pieces suitable for the city.” (via HB)
Fresh for Spring 2011 is Wing + Horns’ their iteration of the classic Mac Jacket. From the looks of it, the heavyweight Japanese canvas will be solid protection for the sporadic weather in the months ahead. The detailing is tremendous with such features as a throat latch, slash hand warmer pockets and two-button cuffs.
Raleigh Denim and Amsterdam’s Tenue de Nîmes teamed up for a limited run of 24 pants made from indigo dyed 11.5 oz selvage canvas which will break in like denim. The indigo canvas pants are made in USA and feature contrast gold stitching, triple needle fell seams and chain stitched hems. All 24 pairs are individually numbered on the leather patch and are personally signed by the designers Victor and Sarah Lytvinenko.
The limited edition run is available at Tenue de Nîmes. For a behind the scenes look at the making of these pants, hit the jump for the video.
Hodinkee done did it again with a first look at British watchmaker Bremont’s latest creation, the P-51 Limited Edition chronograph watch. The company’s known for their aviation-themed timepieces but this beauty really takes things to a new level as it features actual aluminum from the outer skin of an historic P-51 Mustang plane which took flight during World War II as well as Sweden and Israel shortly thereafter.
On this watch, you can find the aluminum on the central 30-minute subdial and on the self-winding rotor which can be seen through the display caseback. The P-51 houses a modified Swiss chronograph chronometer movement, with the addition of a 24-hour UTC hand. No detail was spared on this watch as the winding rotor is a miniature version of a P-51 propeller.
When they said Limited Edition, they meant it as only 251 of the P-51 Limited Edition chronograph will be released.
Though we highlighted the official lookbook for Engineered Garments’ Spring 2011 collection a few weeks back, here’s a fresh batch of looks from Japanese publication HUGE. “What may appear like a fashion faux pas – the scruffy look combined with mixed match patterns – works wonders for Engineered Garment. Drawing attention to the rugged and bearded model that gave the whole look character.” (via WBJ)
From what we’ve seen thus far, Steven Alan’s Spring 2011 collection is looking quite promising. We spied a polka dotted bowtie with a matching patterned single needle shirt as well as a hooded trench and belt tie gusset pants which look super comfortable. Check the video presentation of the collection after the jump.
Selectism turns us to the Fall 2011 lookbook from J.Lindeberg. We’ve been digging the label’s offerings for quite sometime and their fall collection is no different. “The colour palette references nature in the depth of winter, the dark blue water of the fjords, deep evergreen of the forest and shades of light grey skies are contrasted against the vibrant yellows, reds and acid greens of lichen covered rocks.”
New York’s Leffot has been working closely with Chicago-based Horween Leather Company on an array of collaborations, the latest being these NATO watchstraps in Horween unlined shell cordovan. They’re super soft, flexible and of course, durable.
Find them in 18, 20, 22, or 24 mm widths in a rust or dark brown finish.
Jean Claude LeBlanc has done an exceptional job creating a highly reputable brand in Blanc and Noir and their Fall 2011 collection is nothing short of exceptional. The lookbook highlights all segments of the lineup from footwear and accessories to outerwear and knits. Canada’s Roden Gray will surely be housing the offerings come next fall.
