This collaboration between Denver-based brands Winter Session and Journeyman and Co. for the first military-inspired collection is inspired by a mid-century military map case. The exterior is made with 20oz waxed canvas reinforced with Horween Tobacco Dublin leather on the bottom and d-ring and brass snap hook closure system. Open the roll-top of the Field Bag and you’ll find light grey 10.10oz army duck canvas along with an interior laptop sleeve and an accessory pocket. The entire project is handcrafted in Colorado and 10% of the proceeds are donated to IAVA (Irag and Afghanistan Veterans of America).$300
It’s impossible to miss the American and Canadian military field jacket details that inspired Epaulet’s own Field Jacket, but they made a relatively broad canvas their own with a number of changes. The top patch pockets are smaller and slanted for a fresh line across the chest. The bottom patch pockets are larger and bellowed for additional storage. 11oz canvas for durability. Most importantly though, the fit is true Epaulet—precisely cut to give it a flattering shape and silhouette more in-line with a sport coat than vintage military garb.$275
The standard 8-Quarter cap (sometimes referred to as Newsboy hats) is an easily recognizable American classic that you’ll immediately associate with early 1900’s Americana. Knickerbocker Mfg. Co.’s version of the classic eight panel hat is a more tailored version of the original that blends a slimmer, modern cut with the looser-fitting style of the past. The herringbone wool exterior and satin twill lining make sure this cap works with everything from jeans and a tee to a button-down and trousers.$72
Described as fusing an east coast aesthetic with CLAE’s laid back west coast roots, and decked out in a grey and blue colorway inspired by Commonwealth’s unofficial mascot Lola (a French Bulldog), Commonwealth x CLAE’s Limited Edition Pavement Suede Hoffman sneakers are a simply styled, understated alternative to the kicks already in your repertoire.$120
Nobis has always been a brand that was equally concerned with form and function when it comes to the use of technical fabrics, and The Fisherman Jacket is a perfect example of that. Think of The Fisherman like an M-65 jacket that’s been upgraded for modern convenience (hip pockets you can put your hands in, two-way zippers, pit vents) and treated for all-weather functionality.$273
Everyone knows that Nike Flyknits tackle comfort and style equally, but they’re not the first pair we’d pick out of the pile to wear during the winter, but the new Flyknit Chukka Sneakerboot is a completely different story. Woven with wool for warmth. Treated with a water-resistant finish for protection. Rugged outsole for traction. Multicolored reflective details for visibility. These are flyknits built for the winter.$200
