GORE-TEX has long been a staple textile choice of both outdoor brands and fashion labels alike. No stranger to its use, Japanese-based NEXUSVII continues its Holiday 2011 roll-out with the introduction of the NEX-WCS LV-6 GORE-TEX 3L JKT. Living up to its name, the triple-layered nylon jacket arrives underneath the technically- and militarily-driven “WCS” brand umbrella, otherwise known as Weather Clothing System. The jacket features asymmetrical front pockets, a storm flap, as well as breathable windproof lining. Retractable zip vents and the presence of subtle triangular leather details finish off the jacket’s clean aesthetic. Priced at ¥60,900 JPY (approx. $790 USD), availability is now being offered through select NEXUSVII NEX-WCS retailers.
