Last season brought out one of our favorite collaborations to date – Steven Alan for Dockers. This season, the king of shirts is dropping a slew of pants and getting the Dockers seal of approval in the process. The spring co-labeled offering features three pants as well as a pair of shorts with prices ranging from $128 to $148.
Supreme has worked with Adam Kimmel to produce a two-piece suit for this Spring. The suit is understated, youthful, well crafted, and made from Italian cotton twill. It features an unlined two button suit jacket & custom fit pant. Available in two colorways; navy and black.
Look for these suits to be available on March 31st in store at Supreme as well as online. (via Highsnob)
The Hill-Side made a limited number of scarves, handkerchiefs, pocket squares and ties in the brand’s selvage covert chambray fabric exclusively for Context. The snappy red is a great finish and will definitely stand out from the crowd.
Wisconsin’s Context has teamed up with Alden once again for the second coming of the Roy Boot. The Rough Roy Boot is made on the Trubalance last and is cut and sewn using the rough side of Mill Dyed Earth Chamois leather processed by Horween Leather Company. Chamois is basically oiled nubuck and is easy to care for. The suede upper is placed atop Alden’s plantation crepe sole and is known to be extremely comfortable.
This Roy Boot, like the original, will be available exclusively at context, with pre-order deliveries to be made in May 2011. Patience is a virtue, friends.
Vans Vault has teamed up with British bike saddle maker Brooks for this premium black tooled leather saddle. It features hammered copper rivets and looks exceptional. The package comes with a saddle care kit which includes a leather care cream, a cloth and a wrench to get this seat in place in no time.
Schott and Converse have teamed up for this soon-to-be cult favorite. Schott’s known for their iconic leather motorcycle jackets and Converse’s signature Chucks have been hitting the streets for as long as our parents can remember. After checking out these Chuck Taylors, we’re left to wonder why these two American brands didn’t link up sooner.
Down to the details we go. The sneaker features a heavy-duty rear zip entry, zips under the laces and even features a quilted lining as a moto jacket would. The snaps on the tongue really drive the design of this shoe home. The familiar Chuck Taylor All Star patch is right where you’d find it at the ankle in a matching rugged black leather finish. The Schott logo’s sewn on the interior.
Freshness tells us this shoe is the latest from Converse First String, the elite subdivision at the company, and they will be available at First String locations on December 15th.
Jalan Sriwijaya, also known as Fortuna Shoes, has been known in Indonesia to make some pretty amazing footwear. They’ve collaborated with Japan’s Beauty & Youth to deliver this wingtip shoe, which features a Goodyear welt construction, a technique of attaching the sole of the shoe to the upper. A method, which is rarely found this days and it is a characteristic of high-end footwear brand.
J.Crew continues to deliver some timeless collaborations, this time bringing together L.A.-based Mister Freedom and France’s Saint James. Mister Freedom designed and hand screened the original graphics onto an authentic Breton tee, a shirt that’s made Saint James the king of classic nautical style.

For all the soccer heads out there, here’s a shoe to appreciate. Hand made in Naples, Italy with Italian leather, this is a special issue of the Carl Haessner IIX Olympia shoe made exclusively for Lark. This shoe marks the first ever collaboration in over one hundred years of Zeha history. Much props to the good folks at Lark.

Another exclusive from Portland-based Winn Perry alongside shoemaker Alden. Like the Navy Blucher High Boot, this boot has been slightly enhanced with key adjustments to keep you sealed from heavy rains, like those in Portland. This boot features Alden’s “Double Waterloc” oiled leather sole. “Offering the beauty of a leather sole with the added functionality of water resistance to dramatically increase the life of your soles on soggy ground. Add to that a hard rubber heel for traction and stability and you won’t have to worry about slipping on that spilled beer on the concrete floor at the pub anymore.”
