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.
We remember spotting this coat from WWM a few months back when the label’s Fall/Winter 2011 collection was unveiled.

It’s made in the USA and features a burgundy shell with navy stripes and toggle closure to top things off.
Blending wearability with affordability, General Assembly delivers this tweed blazer at a price that won’t break the bank.

Though we haven’t seen too many varsity jackets for Fall 2011, this wool-blend variety from rag & bone is definitely one of the better ones. It features a wool-blend body and leather sleeves and is fitted with nylon lining. The ribbed striped collar, cuffs and hem contrast well with the grey shell. It’s made in the USA and comes in a slightly more relaxed fit to give room for layering.
Acne takes a unique approach to the college sweater. These long sleeve cotton pullovers feature a shuffled printed front with a play on classic souvenir sweaters. Images from some of the world’s most renowned places and iconic symbols, like the Eiffel Tower or the Statue of Liberty, are the backdrop for mixed city names thus placed out of context, but always with Sweden as a subtitle. They’re actually pretty amusing and the colors are really wearable for the upcoming fall and winter seasons.
