WTAPS – ‘Youthful Dayz’ November 2014 Drop

October 30th, 2014

The latest drop from Japanese-imprint WTAPS has arrived at END. and, as you’d expect, the collection does not disappoint with its infectious mix of reappropriated military and Americana styles.

Now in its 29th season the brand’s Autumn/Winter 2014 collection, dubbed ‘Youthful Dayz’, faithfully abides by their ever-present motto of ‘Placing things where they should be’, with each piece rarely straying away from their source of inspiration.

This is not to say that designer Tetsu Nishiyama has not stamped his marque across the collection, infact each piece is undoubtedly WTAPS whether it be the military flight jacket informed design of the MA-1 Jacket with authentic safety lining offset by classic branded decals or the rugged Americana-inspired shirting range, such as the Union 01 Shirt, which would look as in place in Rockies as it would in Regents Park.

The highlight and the backbone of the collection is undoubtedly the extensive range of tees and jersey that are constructed to Nishiyama’s exacting standards. Collection staples such as the Heraldry, Crossbones and Desert Storm tees are complemented by jersey pieces such the Hellweek and Design 01 efforts.

The November 2014 drop is rounded off with a plethora of precisely executed accessories such as heavy gauge socks, classic backpacks, intricate wallets, Scottish Yarn-constructed beanies and a collaborative effort with premier cap manufacturer Ebbets Field Flannels.

Filson: A Story of Stubbornness

October 29th, 2014


 
The latest video short by U.S. brand Filson depicts the labour of love that goes into their manufacturing process. Unwilling to eschew their ways to the demands of cheaper production or highly volume, the outerwear label have stuck to their guns, all of which is explained in ‘A Story of Stubbornness’.

With a history spanning well over 100 years, not much has changed to Filson’s approach. An approach that could easily be deemed ‘thickheaded’, offering a lifetime guarantee on their products and using materials that take a year or two to wear in so they take forever to wear out.

A brand proud of their heritage and ‘Made in the USA’ tag, Filson’s two facilities are located a short distance apart to allow them to keep an ever-watchful eye on quality, giving the capacity to manufacture even more of our products in the United States.
