Sammler by Lee's

Many collaborations are featured here almost daily especially from the Far East. They come in different forms but the best quality comes from a merging of a contemporary “fashion” brand together with an actual garment maker. American workwear makers are the natural choice for these collaborations and we’ve seen Dickies x Bouncer, Levis x Fragment, Schott x Neighborhood. These new brands need the decades/century old know-how of these garment makers to serve as foundation for their graphics or logos. “Tokushu Blouson” shows that this is the case featuring Sammler’s worker jackets by Lee’s. Denim maker Lee has provided Sammler with a 101J and 91J worker jacket. The 91J is supposedly the upper of a worker’s overalls, further emphasizing a post-war industrial feel. The 91J is manufactured with a “Rip-stop” Tiger camo, a vintage pattern from 1948 first used in the Jungles by the French in Indo-Chine. This camo was continued to be by US Special Forces in Vietnam, which had once been part of France’s empire. The 101J is worked over with a contemporary feel, small polka-dots with contrasting stitching. The buttons are eroded and old, and whether they are actual vintage pieces is unknown, however enough to make any workwear fan crazy. Source: Hynms

Air Jordan V x Air Force 1 Fusion USA

Here we go, the next fusions to make you drool or spit. This time it’s an all American colorway of red white and blue in time for the Olympics. These mids far surpass the black Air Jordan V x Air Force 1 Lows we’ve seen on other sites (which look 100% fake). These actually look decent, but hopefully they wont release 10 more colorways, keeping it somewhat subtle. Source: Nice Kicks

Puma Clyde "Vintage"

Puma Clyde "Vintage"

The proliferation of vintage treatments to sneakers and its trickle down effect sees the venerable Puma Clyde undergo a faded and weathered look. In all honesty, with suede and its impossible upkeep, this gimmick is all but unnecessary as the first freak rain storm or spilling of beer on your suede Clydes/Suedes will leave the same effect seen here. However, classic colorways seen here definitely shouldn’t be overlooked. Look for a worldwide roll out soon. Source: Mita
