As part of Dockers‘ partnership with GQ’s Best New Menswear Designers in America program, we bring you images of their collaboration with designer Patrik Ervell. The Fall 2011 GQ Best New Menswear Designers in America X Dockers Collection marks the first time that each of the nominated designers has contributed to the larger GQ Best New Menswear Designers in America collection. This season also marks the first time Dockers has teamed with GQ to develop this special range. The end result was tremendous across the board but Patrik Ervell’s offerings are definitely one of our favorite sets.
Supreme has joined forces with Levi’s for the first time to produce a small capsule collection for the fall. This collection includes a Supreme Edition of the classic Levi’s 505 Zip-Fly Jean, a Chambray Work Shirt, a Trucker Jacket in Leather and Suede, a Denim Down Vest, and a Denim Bell Hat. The kicker is that all products are Made In The U.S.A.
Maison Margiela drops this leather case that’s perfect for your Macbook or other laptop. It’s lined with shearling and features an adjustable shoulder strap for added comfort and versatility. The case also delivers the Maison’s own stationary, bespoke card holder and pencil. “Up to the usual Made in Italy quality standards, it features a deep brown premium leather which was specially moulded in order to boast a seamless rounded surface that, together with other hand finished details and a shinny metal zip, make this laptop case a truly oustanding piece.”
From Wolverine‘s No. 1883 Collection comes their Mayall boot, a perfect addition for the fall and winter seasons ahead. The boot features a butter-soft full-grain leather upper and is lined with a textured, plaid woven print. The 8″ Mayall folds down to drop a couple inches and further adding to the boot’s versatility.
Look for the Wolverine Mayall at select shops including Nordstrom for $225.
With Double RL & Co. now being available through Ralph Lauren’s online shop, expect to see more and more visuals for the one of the company’s best-kept secrets. Since its inception, RRL has been fairly inaccessible but now that the gear’s available online and we’ll be seeing some solid looks for the offerings as well. The Fall 2011 collection is filled with plenty of denim product as well as a good amount of pieces that will protect you from the elements and make you look good as well. (via CS)
From SUPER sunglasses come these limited edition “49er” frames for Fall/Winter 2011. The design is reminiscent of classic explorer sunglasses while the thin metal skeleton allow for a more modern and timeless design. The premium acetate covering gives it a sharp look and falls in line with the historic models from other brands. There are four colorways available now in limited numbers online and at select stockists but we aren’t even focusing on any of the others past the all-black frames shown above.
As we gear up for the winter months ahead, we’re pulling out a few Fall 2011 lookbooks to give you some inspiration and deliver shots of what will be available in the weeks ahead. Monitaly’s one of our favorite menswear labels right now and their upcoming collection is phenomenal, especially in the outerwear segment. The coats are well-made with several wearable styles up for grabs. Be sure to check out the rest of the lookbook below.
Though fairly young, Uniforms for the Dedicated has dropped some amazing product for the upcoming fall season. The lineup’s more experimental compared to years past as it features more relaxed fit outfits and a much welcomed dose of warmer fabrics such as wool. Other key components include organice jersey and utilization of recycle cotton across a wide range of pieces such as winter parkas and knit blazers.
New to MR PORTER’s stable of fine designers is New York’s Alexander Olch. The neckwear designer has had a major influence on the industry over the past few years and his Fall 2011 offerings are looking as solid as ever. The plaid wool ties come in some great finishes with matching handkerchiefs to boot.
This video takes us inside the factory as the Banner Lownsdale is being crafted to perfection. The Horween Chromexcel leather upper is fitted atop a Vibram sole, giving it a durable and rugged appeal that’s as wearable to work as it is to downtown.
