New Season Highlights From Wtaps
The past week has seen a few new arrivals from some of our favourite Japanese Labels and as always, Wtaps does not disappoint. More recently, we’ve seen Wtaps take a more generous approach to fit and cut, with a number of oversized items available. The latest interpretations of the Jungle Shirt include all the military and brand detailing that we’ve seen in the past, but have been updated with a broader silhouette. The Jungle Shirt is available this season in both black and olive drab.
The military inspired Cargo 02 Trousers are available this season in a heavy weight indigo dyed Japanese denim. The most notable feature is the cut. An extra roomy leg with tight elastic cuff at the ankle results in a unique, baggy fit. Made in Japan, the quality of construction is unparalleled. This is a garment that will only improve with age.
Neighborhood Outerwear Highlight
The latest N-2D Jacket from Neighborhood is an exceptional piece of outerwear. With a variety of unique details, both aesthetic and function, this is definitely a standout piece from the latest range.
The nylon shell jacket features a Primaloft internal padding, adding to warmth and comfort. With a zip and button front closure, the N-2D is designed to withstand harsh temperatures and conditions. The standout feature however, is the split zip oversized hood. Lined with Alpaca wool, the heavy weight hood features a bold 3M print detail, reading “GET BUSY LIVING / GET BUSY DYING” and is finished with a Coyote fur trim.
Beyond the more bold features, the jacket features a number of subtle details such as the cuff stitching, zip sleeve pocket and duel access body pockets. With all details considered, the N-2D Jacket definitely embodies the emphasis on premium quality and construction that Neighborhood is known for.
