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.
Here, we have a look at some of the product from Barbour Tokihito’s Fall/Winter 2011 collection. The shots from the lookbook really give us a good sense of what to expect from this tremendous collaboration. Amongst the styles available are the Spey Fishing jacket, the Shoreman Jackets in both wax and ventile by the original long Shoreman, the all-new Sports Jacket in both olive syloil wax and a 100% Shetlan wool tweed with laminated waterproof backing, and an updated version of the very popular Motor Bike Shirt in Barbour 6oz sylkoil wax with the classic Cardinal tartan lining.
If you’re not sold on this jacket from first glance, then you should be after I add my two cents. The tan suede shell is not for everyone but when you bring out a timeless piece like Levi’s trucker jacket in this material, it should be an insta-buy. The outer is brilliant soft suede and on the flip side inside soft leather. The fit on the Type III from Levi’s Vintage has been known to be slimmer than the standard trucker and the fact that it’s made with absolute care in Italy makes it an even easier purchase.
This jacket from Kitsune comes in a magnificent ultramarine blue and features two interior pockets as well as two exterior patch pockets. Kitsune’s fit is known to be spot on so don’t hesitate to pull the trigger on this one.
The Nigel Cabourn for Eddie Bauer collection for Fall 2011 was one of the biggest hits from this January’s Bread & Butter tradeshow in Berlin and with good reason. The product looks flawles. “What we’re looking at is strong, highly tailored and developed outerwear from the Seattle staple brand.” Word’s even getting out that this collection may be available stateside. Fingers crossed, folks. (via Selectism)
