Dumpin what I got
Gotta go to class now, but i still got some pics left
If no one answers it's probably because no one knows. I always try and help out in w2c threads when I can. Anyway, I think what the other dude meant was to ask in threads like this because people into the same style are more likely to be able to id stuff.
I made a list of labels that can fit the vibe of this thread
I’m not gonna attempt to categorize them because many of them don’t fit one particular classification
Yes, a lot of the labels are Japanese
Yes, there are a million out there that are not on this list, so feel free to contribute
White Mountaineering (JP) - outdoorsy heritage influenced clothing
Rag & Bone (UK/USA) - modern takes on classic utilitarian clothes in comfy cuts and colors
Sasquatchfabrix (JP) - global street inspired with a definite nod to Japanese heritage
Engineered Garments (USA/JP) - uniquely modern takes on classic American styles seen through the lens of Japanese designer Daike Suzuki, made in New York
ts(s) (JP) - a different take on classic American clothing designed by Daike’s brother who stayed in Japan, fantastic construction and materials
Iroquois (JP) - lots of patterns and patchwork with nods to both vintage Americana and traditional Japanese fabrics
Share Spirit (JP) - truly globally inspired clothing designed by a world traveling designer - hit and miss - lots of pieces are, unfortunately, over-designed to the point of clownishness
Kolor (JP) - earthy menswear with playful, unique patterns and details
Lost & Found (IT) - avant garde comfycore using lots of wools and other natural fabrics
Trove (JP) - the quintessential Mori Boy brand, noted for always using super twinky models in the lookbooks
The Soloist (JP) - Takahiro Miyashita's side project alongside Number (N)ine, which he has continued after the closure of N(N)
Kapital (JP) - vintage workwear inspired, known for intricate patchwork and lots of indigo fabrics
Haversack (JP) - similar style to Kapital, workwear and military influence
Factotum (JP) - great layering pieces, some collections fit the outdoor earth tone theme more than others
Is-Ness (JP) - only certain pieces from these guys work for this aesthetic, they often walk the line between comfycore and techwear and use both subdued earth tones and incredibly crazy loud colors and patterns
I cannot for the life of me find their website. Maybe they don’t have one.
Filson (USA) - classic American outdoor gear
Visvim (JP) - streetwear meets heritage Americana
Inpaichthys Kerri (JP)- named after the scientific name of a fish… similar Americana style of Visvim
Paul Harnden Shoemakers (UK) - handmade oversized old timey avant-garde style clothes, intentionally difficult to get a hold of
Elena Dawson (UK) - One-time patternmaker for Harnden, now has her own label
STORY mfg. (UK) - minimalist boxy cut garments in subdued colors, also entirely vegan
Norse Projects (SWE) - American heritage inspired clothing with plenty of natural fabrics
Howlin’ by Morrison (BEL/UK) - gorgeous knitwear manufactured in Scotland by Belgian label Morrison
so so so many labels
it's seriously much easier to adapt womens clothing to this style, but here are a few that spring to mind
Rogan (US) (defunct)
Lost & Found (IT)
Any shops on the cheaper side? Can't be spending hundreds sadly (in uni :<
[) where to cop decent chimps and sweaters. This style looks really cool, I'm building up my knowledge and style not by bit so so wanna implemtnt different stuff etc.
Great list my man. Some of my favorites in there. To throw in some more:
Nonnative (JP) - Military, menswear, bohemian traveller - long slouchy tapered silhouettes - sewn up in high quality, often surprisingly technical fabrics
Phigvel Makers & Co. - Americana adapted to more contemporary casual wear, slimmer silhouettes with a more streetwear oriented styling - traditional hats, leatherworking, tartans, wools, canvas, welted shoes
Old Joe Brand (JP) - 50s Americana and vintage military pieces. Slubby heavy wide-legged denim and long outerwear.
His name is Theo. His name on most sites is ThisIsTheodore. He crossposts on several sites including this one, though he doesn't hang out here much anymore.
Thrifting is probably your best bet. There are plenty of good layering pieces to be found. Military surplus can work if you style it well and don't go over the top.
I think they're called charity shops in the uk? I'm sure there are many around london.
You can make cheap clothes from somewhere like Asos work for the style if you pick and choose carefully. Obviously it won't look as nice as designer, but it's a start.
Also, do investigate proxy services to order stuff from Japan. Since there are plenty of labels over there that fit the bill, prices can be cheaper. I dunno about the UK but shipping to the US is fast and I've never had to pay a customs fee.
I looked them up, heard some a shitty "vintage" ones but they just overprice stuff. Will have to research more. Also I guess so, gotta get start from my own price range first.
Will try, planning on getting something from teeparty, if that works out well i'll deffo look into this.
ty both anyway.
Bumping with own fit.
Besides the shoes, is this any good?
they're just brown pleated wool pants
Norse Projects is a good bet on a budget
Layering one button up over another looks silly to me. I'd take off the black shirt and button up the grey one. If you're trying for a layered look, you'll want a long tee as the bottom layer or a long cardigan over the button up.
As you mentioned, the shoes don't work here, nor do the cuffs with the shoes. I'd go for brown shoes and uncuff or brown boots and keep the cuff. Simple green or brown sneakers could work. Maybe some New Balance, Brooks, or Saucony type chunky runners to balance out the heavy coat.
