There’s always one down vest each season that catches our attention and never lets go. This time around, Stone Island’s Shadow Project holds the crown with their Modular down vest. It features vertical chest pockets, a raised collar with velcro band.
Barbour and Tokihito Yoshida continue their fruitful collaboration into Fall 2011 with a plethora of pieces for the colder months. The Spey Fishing jacket is a new style that’s been added to the mix, one we think will be well-received by you all. The style’s got plenty of Barbour-infused detailing like the waxed shell and cord collar but gets the To Ki To touch with added functionality.
3.1 Phillip Lim’s rendition of the motorcycle jacket features an interesting twist as the leather sleeves are hand braided for added detail. The fit is still slim throughout and all other classic detailings are on with silver accents and a slanted zip closure. Look for this at Phillip Lim flagship stores and select stockists worldwide for $1,750 USD.
I recently had the opportunity to stop in at GANT‘s West Village location on Bleecker Street. I was tipped off to the fact that though it’s not available online yet, the New York locations have taken limited stock of the label’s Homerun varsity jacket for Fall 2011. This one’s a killer, folks. If you thought last year’s offering was amazing, then we’re sure you’ll appreciate this one. It comes in bright red herringbone with cream leather sleeves. The shell’s broken in, too, as you’ll see marks and detailing on the sleeves that’s unique to each piece. It’s unlined and the fit is immaculate. I tried it on and instantly fell in love. You won’t see this jacket online for another two weeks but if you’re in the city, be sure to stop in and check it out. Leave a size Small for me though. Thanks.
Here we have looks from Stone Island’s Fall 2011 collection. As expected, the outerwear selection will be immense as the Italian label continues to experiment with new fabrics and blends. The time dedicated to making each piece is really what sets Stone Island apart and it shows in the final product.
Well, looks like the fun has begun, folks. We’re in the middle of some gorgeous weather here in the Northeast but shops are already getting shipments for Fall 2011. Among the drops was this Caister Fair Isle jumper from Barbour. It’s made from 100% lambswool and comes in a storm grey shell. The details are immense as the gauge knit jumper sweater features a ribbed crew neck, brown suede elbow patches and a Barbour label to the side seam.
Until now, we’ve seen only a small portion of what Schott’s Perfecto Brand will be offering up for Spring 2012. They’ve now gone ahead and released the entire lookbook for next spring, with “Northeastern sporting clubs and railroads serving as the backdrop. The locales are fitting, as vintage Americana remains the root of the line.” The Perfecto jacket will be available in some new fabrics and will work magnificently with the brand’s suede and waxed cotton pieces.

Unionmade of San Francisco has taken stock of a few pieces from Tender’s Fall 2011 collection. Though not a whole lot of stuff available just yet, these specific items will definitely get you through the late summer and early weeks of the upcoming fall season. The label continues to experiment with natural dyes and intricate construction processes. The Type 900V Jacket and Type 130 Slim Jeans are back, this time dyed with Mexican Logwood. There are few knits in the mix as well including the Type 350 Elephant T-shirt. If you’re looking for accessories, Tender’s dropped a few of those as well.
This week’s (capsule) show in New York had some solid brands on display, including one of our personal favorites — Ovadia & Sons. From their previous work, we know they can dish out some really amazing product and they’ve done just that with their Spring 2011 collection. WATM tells us this is just their 3rd season and the two brothers from Brooklyn are doing a phenomenal job offering pieces that are as functional as they are wearable.
This piece has been in the works for quite sometime now and we’re glad to see they took their time with this one. The Anorak is really well-designed as it uses a pullover construction with two way side ventilation. The magnetic front piece is fully adjustable while the shell’s made from 3XDry Cotton Linen fabric that’s soft and sturdy at the same time with some much welcomed performance from Schoeller’s 3XDry treatment in there as well.
