As fall nears, brands are debuting new seasonal collections, teasing winter apparel and accessories and shifting their focus from watches worn on exposed wrists to those sheltered by a sleeve's cuff. As such, you'll see a pom pom beanie, a dark camo Seiko, heftier shirts by Buck Mason and Alex Mill, a dressy but slightly oddball watch from Zodiac and more transitional pieces in this week's release roundup.
Buck Mason's all-new basic Oxford is made from 7 ounces of yarn-dyed Oxford knit, which means it's small, the classic Oxford color and easy to break in over time.
The Ultraboost has sort of fell to the wayside since Adidas' Yeezy love affair commenced. As such, there have been fewer collab editions lately. But END is bringing the silhouette back with its simple 'Ceramic Craze' colorway. It's tonal throughout but super-elevated.
New York surf brand Saturdays collaborated with Tokyo-based brand Porter Yoshida on a tote bag that actually protects what's in it. The top has a drawstring closure to keep your laptop out of the public eye and protected from the rain. Plus, with it closed, nothing will far out if the bag topples over. It's plenty tall, too, which means you can fit a lot in here — and in its exterior pockets.
Alex Mill's new fall collection features a number of corduroy garments. This popover shirt, though, is the best of the bunch, with its simple shape, unique pocket configuration and noticeable cuffs.
I know, I know. It's not beanie season. How dare I? But Corridor's new Pom Pom Beanie just dropped, and it's the type of standout accessory you need to snag now before it's gone by the time snow arrives.
Collegiate tees are almost always a solid color with a contrasting oversized text logo. Dad Grass, as much a CBD brand as it is a merch company, made its own version of one, covering the front of a standard blue tee with the word "Grass." It's clever, a little cheeky and better than a tee that says "Dad."
Preppy Americana Japanese men's publication 2nd Magazine collaborated with American bag maker Briefing on a backpack that can be carried like a tote. The center panel is a faded camo that almost looks like an animal print, and the top closes with a drawstring top and clip fastener.
Mister Green is branching out from T-shirts and Bong Water mugs to offer a collection of hemp-based smart apparel called World Piece. The Oxford is considered medium-weight; it has an incredible tag inside; and the 55/45 hemp-cotton blend fabric boasts workwear-level durability.
Duffel bags aren't cheap anymore. And most don't last more than a few seasons. Barebones' new Neelum Duffel is both affordable and built to withstand actual wear and tear. It's made from waxed canvas with a full-grain leather logo badge. It's a pretty good size, too: 21.75 x 10.25 x 11 inches.
Filson and Xtratuf's best-selling lace up boots are back. Combine the outdoor prowess of Filson with Xtratuf's workwear expertise and you get a boot that's as hard-wearing as it is protective. It's slip- and chemical-resistant, waterproof and built with enhanced arch support.
J.Crew and New Balance have worked on a number of sneakers together over the years, and their latest collab is a fall-friendly version of the 997. Perfect for late August and all of September and October, there are earthen tones throughout contrasted with pops of color.
The latest watch from Ming, and the young brand's 50th reference, combines a guilloche dial with a lume-filled sapphire dial over it for an interesting, three-dimensional visual effect. It's a monopusher chronograph, meaning all the chronograph functions are operated by a single button.
