We're starting to see more and more outerwear on the streets of new york these days, we've even spotted our long lost friend, the down jacket, and while you think you may be prepped for the upcoming cool of autumn, we beg to differ. Get your eyes, hands and credit card on Bahr Brown's picks for what's hot this week on the shelves.
Storm System Coat from The Dark Side Initiative
By far the illest fashion x tech brand has emerged with its Fall 2013-14 collection, Acronym combines Bourne Identity and modern espionage looking gear and makes it functional but dope look. The ACRONYM J38-LP LORO PIANA® STORM SYSTEM® COAT is the shut it down piece of this collection. Treated wool from Loro Piana with functional pockets all over for stashing anything you can think of. The show-stopper is a called a Gravity Pocket on the inside of the sleeve at the wrist - need your iPhone? It shoots out into your hand. Can you say WTF?
Jordan X Sneakers from Mita Sneakers
Released in 94 when Mike took a leave of absence to pursue baseball dreams. The Jordan X might be one of the cleanest Js to drop, especially this colorway. They have already released in Japan but will make their way to the States for an Oct. 12 release. Good luck trying to cop these, its going to be pure mayhem in all cities across the US.
Norse Projects Gloves from Need Supply Co
Norse Projects will always have something In Store as long as Im doing the buying, because they are at the top of my list of great menswear brands. They cover all areas but really kill accessories. These Hestra Ivar gloves are made of butter soft deer skin and have a lambswool lining and thats all the explanation you need. A perfect gift for any uncles, dads, or granddads!
Common Projects Shoes from Mr. Porter
Common Projects is known for their great, high quality and super minimal sneakers. I have quite a few pairs and I love them because they can be dressed down or rocked with a suit. Here the brand has put a twist on your average derby and come up with a great looking shoe. Slick.
Sweats from Jimmy Sweatpants
Another color drop from the homie Jimmy Gorecki who may have the only premium sweatpant company in this hemisphere. Jimmy unleashes RED on us for the fall, and Im feeling it. Like I said before you can skate, chill and travel in comfort, quality, and style in JSP. Couple them with any of your kicks and your kit is complete!
Comme des Garcons Wonderwood from Barneys New York
Fall has arrived! Give off the essence of the outdoors with CDGs Wonderwood fragrance. Notes of bergamot, pepper, nutmeg and caraway with a lingering hit of sandalwood means an awesome scent profile for these cooler days and nights. All CDG scents are unisex but this one definitely slants manly.
Carhart WIP Duck Camo Sweatshirt from Union LA
At first glance you may think BAPE but no, its just a great Duck Camo from Carhartt WIP (Work In Progress) done very well here on a crew neck. And, its reasonably priced (unlike BAPE).
Alife X Cam'Ron Tee from End Clothing
Last but not least we have the official limited edition run of Alife x Cam'Ron Tees. Harlems own Dipset leader knows he has a brand new worldwide following (of a lot of young white people) and hes got releases show it, like the Nike Dri-Fit Socks with the image of Cam in his pink fur and the official Dipset football jerseys that dropped a few weeks ago. Harry McNally shot Cam for the Alife campaign and I like the results. Killa Cam plays the merchandising game like a game of Cee-Lo on a Harlem corner! 4,5,6, Pay Me!
