Left Field NYC drops their Angus Young Shorts for the spring and summer months ahead, giving us some well-made pieces in the perfect length. Dubbed the “Angus Young Goes to Princeton” collection, the shorts are painstakingly crafted in the USA from a variety preppy-toned 100% organic cotton twills, and feature a chainstitched waistband, YKK zip-fly with Corozo button, and Japanese chambray pocket bags. Look for them now on Left Field’s online store.
Left Field sent over some shots of their 2012 denim collection in action. The all-black everything look never gets old and this lookbook is a testament to that. It was shot in Greenpoint, Brooklyn by photographer Liz Brinkley, and includes all of this year’s denim styles, including the $175 Cone Mills Greaser Jean, the Heavy Nisshinbo Greaser Jean, and the brand new Collect Sulfur-dyed Black Greaser Jeans. Each pair is handcrafted to perfection in the good ol’ US of A and priced well at $175 a pair. Shop the complete denim lineup at Left Field.
Left Field has just dropped a few pieces from their F/W 2011 collection, among them are these heavy tartan overskirts. They’re made in Los Angeles from a burly 12 oz., 100% cotton American-made tartan twill. Fine details include a shrunken point collar, placket-free front, single chest pocket, shoulder pleats, adjustable cuffs, old school “union” tag and navy blue Corozo buttons. They come in a slimmer fit and can be worn as a button up or as a mid-layer piece.
Left Field has released a few pieces inspired by Champion sweatshirts from the 1950s. The Left Field Crossgrains are made with their fleece running horizontally instead of vertically, helping to maintain the sweats’ shape, and prevent shrinking. Left Field’s product is always impeccably designed and the attention to detail is always apparent. Here, there are five pieces in total — three crews and two hoods — all made from burly 16 oz., 100% ringspun cotton loop terry, all produced in the United States.
Some of the features on the Crew include a v-stitch at the neck with ribbed insert, side-panel construction and ribbed cuffs and hem. The Hoodies feature thermal lining in the hood, natural cotton tape drawstrings, vintage style pockets and a heavy-duty, US-made YKK zipper.
From Left Field comes a great lineup of well-fitting polos. The styles are actually really well-done with contrasting collars and our favorite happens to be this one in a salmon-like shell and Liberty of London floral print lining. The genuine Mother of Pearl buttoning and the Left Field skull logo embroidered on the chest really top this one off.
Left Field has dropped some really well-made short sleeve button downs for the current season. There are three shirts in the range, including two that are made from a barely-there light Japanese madras, while the third is made from baby-butt soft organic cotton gingham.
The detailing on three shirts is tremendous as they include real Trocas Shell buttons, a button down collar with third button on the center back, locker loop at the shoulder seam and notched short-sleeve cuff with button detail.
Left Field does it again, this time bringing us four different variations of their Angus Young shorts. The four styles — Spanish chambray, Japanese Hickory Stripe, Japanese Pinstripe, and a US grown and woven red Organic Cotton Twill (above) — each feature some amazing details worth noting. They include a chain-stitched waist band, durable YKK zipper fly, back welt pockets, Japanese chambray pocket bags, and sustainable Corozo buttons throughout.
We’re officially in spring and that would normally mean it’s time to ditch the heavy fabrics and get relaxed for the warmer months ahead. That would be the case if it wasn’t snowing today here in NYC. The good thing is this gives you some more time to prepare. You’ll need some well-crafted chinos when the weather lightens up and this pair from Left Field is a prime choice. It’s made from 100% ringspun cotton Japanese twill with all the cutting and sewing done right in Los Angeles. The detailing is solid as the khakis feature a chain-stitched waist band, a front coin pocket and buttoned back pockets while the pocket bags are made from Japanese chambray. It’s all in the details, folks.
Where Brooklyn at? Left Field‘s turned us to their Fall 2011 lookbook and we have to say it was impeccably shot. The setting is an old motorcycle part warehouse in Ohio and the offerings get some really detailed shot that are worth checking out. Highlights from the lineup include the shirting which is made from domestically woven flannel and denim made with fabric from the infamous Kaihara Mills in Japan. All things aside, I want that brooklyn sweatshirt right now. It’s made from an exclusive, American-knit 16 oz. heavy loop terry.
Left Field is doing some great things and that’s quite apparent in their current collection but the Fall 2011 pieces look tremendous as well, something to anticipate.
We recently got turned to a new denim drop from Left Field NYC. Their Nisshinbo Slim Straight Jeans are handcrafted in Los Angeles from 100% red-line selvedge denim sourced from Japan’s Nisshinbo Mills. From the Scovill tack buttons to the Universal rivets and burs, the hardware’s all-American. As far as the fit goes, we’re hearing it’s damn near impeccable.
