If It Keeps On Raining Like Today…
The coat in this outfit might be the finest coat ever made. While this may sound like an overstatement, and granted, I haven’t actually seen one in person, the Ten C Fishtail Parka is styled impeccably and even had an entirely new nylon/polyester jersey textile designed for Ten C’s outerwear line that is meant to wear and age with the owner of the jacket, creating a desired patina. Ten C only makes seven jackets in what seems to be exclusively olive drab and black, maybe one other color, at best. They are designed by former Stone Island and CP Company designers, and are some of the most simple, classic, and tasteful outerwear designs going. They are very exclusive, and priced along with Veilance, Nanamica and Stone Island, available at what seems to be only Union in the US, and The Bureau in Belfast.
Colimbo Hunting Goods has recently become a real stand out for me as far as Japanese workwear brands go. All of their pieces look incredibly well manufactured and all have interesting, modern takes on 1920’s and 1930’s workwear. I especially love the intricate knit of this henley, which is able to be knitted on only a few machines still existing in Japan and will likely die out in a generation, according to Hickoree’s Hard Goods, which are the exclusive stockists of Colimbo Hunting goods in North America.
As always an Ebbets Field Flannels hat tops off the outfit; this one being a 1951 Utica Braves cap. The jeans are Joe McCoy 991 Slim Fit, which are on my NYC wish list. The shoes are Red Wing Postman Oxfords and the belt is Filson.
