With the end of summer starting to near, we’ve seen many brands begin the unveiling of their fall/winter collections. Going to be interesting to see how things will shape up and how quiet tradeshow season may inevitably become. Here’s our weekly staff picks as we run through our top choices of the last seven days or so including Be Positive, Carhartt x Vans, THINK SiLLY’s grand opening exclusives and Evisu’s homage to Lee.

Kevin – Be Positive 2008 Fall/Winter Collection

Ever since the first previews surfaced of Be Positive’s line of footwear, I knew a strong collection of footwear was in the making. Judging by these detailed shots, the product features a classy and elegant look to it as the use of the athletically minded sole keeps things in balance. Furthermore the nice colors and materials are arguably tied together well with a simple but solid concept. Definitely something you can wear over different occasions.



Jason – THINK SiLLY Store Opening Special Boxset

To celebrate the re-opening of the SiLLY THING store in Hong Kong, newly re-branded SiLLY THING are releasing a t-shirt and viewfinder, slideshow set. The change in direction is apparent from street wear to more sophisticated mens fashion brand, the attention to detail is amazing and the creativity and quality on this opening day release is excellent. The brands new direction I believe suits their going direction and hope to see some incredible pieces come out from SiLLY THING.



Jefford – Carhartt x Vans Half Cab | Chukka

I have always been used to Carhartt being just work wear, but within Asia and Europe their streetwear presence is much stronger; having many solid collabos with streetwear giants such as Bape among others. These kicks they did with Vans are very clean and was able to keep the rugged aesthetics of Carhartt’s heritage. These brown canvas themed Half-Cabs and Chukkas are definitely identifiable with Carhartt’s own trademarks and something to look forward to.



Eugene – Evisu Tribute to Lee’s – No. 13 Lazy S Slim Denim

Although most will argue despite Evisu’s strong initial push, the catching on of the brand with the wrong crowd nevitably led to a certain demise. However, that’s not to say I still think one of the most popular denim brands outside of the United States isn’t without its own eye for design. While in the new market for denim now, I most likely won’t wait till January for a release, however the end result of this Lee inspiration definitely bodes well for the brand as it goes back to focusing more on quality denim to compliment its sometimes horrendous overpowering gulls we’ve seen release.
