The 41 Khaki Chino is a new addition to the Workaday family. Based off a 1941 military pant, this style is a low-rise, clean cut chino with a slight taper. For those who find the Workaday Fatigues to be a bit baggy, this is a nice alternative that is a bit more straight in the leg. The pants are made with a cotton twill that is a sturdy weight and can be worn year round. Sure to be a favorite from the Workaday collection.
Although we've had a few days of unseasonably warm weather, Winter will be here any moment and this offering from Needles is just what you need to carry you through the cold. Made in Japan of a 70 /30 cotton/nylon blend exterior and a 100% wool pile interior, the Boa Lining Shawl Coat features a myriad of details. Two welt pockets and two flap pockets all accented in deerskin adorn the front of the coat and the bottom skirt is quilted for added warmth.
The latest delivery from our Japan-based brand Needles offers a number of quality outerwear pieces. Along with the Alpaca Coat from a few days back, we now have the Arrow Jacket. This jacket has a similar approach in its design by making minor alterations and updates to a classic silhouette. The body of the jacket is made from Harris Tweed and has the throwback feel of something you might find in your father's closet. The accents on the pockets, elbows, and cuffs are made with deerskin leather. The tweed and leather combination provides a nice contrast now but will look even better after years of wear.
The Shaggy Alpaca Coat is another favorite from our Needles FW12 collection. This classic yet stylish coat consists of an alpaca/wool blend. The soft fabric gives you not only warmth but also ease and comfort. Some of the features include: multiple pockets in the front, an inside chest pocket, and center back vent. Fully lined. Made in Japan. This coat suits any occasion and will be a useful addition to your wardrobe.
One of our favorites this season is the Storm Coat. As functional as it is stylish; this utility trench features a rinsed 9 oz cotton canvas outer shell. The interior houses a patterned detachable wool lining and all of the exterior pockets, hood trim and collar are corduroy lined for added warmth-making this an ideal choice for the winter.
The Nepenthes New York FW12 Loop Back BD Shirt is now available. As you all may already know, the Nepenthes NY line is known to lean towards the more vibrant and unique patterns. This seasons pattern selection is no different with its mixture of dark and bright colorways. Just a little heads up for people who aren't familiar with Nepenthes NY... Size up!
This reconstructed M-65 jacket is a new addition to the Rebuild by Needles family. The Rebuild collection is made from vintage military pieces that are cut and resewn together to build new garments. The M-65 version uses a NyCo body with poly lining and Fireman buckles. The fully-lined sleeves are made from nylon and have a wool/acrylic ribbing at the cuff. This jacket, in its mix and match style, is a definite show piece and something to one-up the standard M-65s found at army/military suppliers and thrift stores.
