After a strong showing this year that included a two-part collaborative release with New Balance, Concepts continues the momentum by releasing its collection for Holiday 2014. The range as a whole makes dapper assertions on Northeast menswear staples such as oxford shirts, oversized woolen trousers, and jackets – all of which is proudly made in the United States. The outerwear in particular uses luxurious, yet rugged materials; a hooded jacket is packed with heavyweight down and Japanese Pindot, while elsewhere the parka silhouette is made with moleskin fabric at the exterior and lined with breathable nylon. Complimenting these releases is a collaboration with Vanson on a croc-embossed leather varsity jacket, as well as a sneak peek at a forthcoming project with Birkenstock. Pick these pieces up beginning soon on Concepts’ website.
