HAVEN, one of the world’s most trusted purveyors of prime streetwear, just recently stocked its shop with two impeccable jackets from Japanese label, Black Means. The first outerwear piece is a reinterpretation of the standard military L-2B jacket, crafted from durable nylon and trimmed with contrasting pig suede tabs and sleeve panels. Famed for precise construction, the brand also produces a biker jacket made from white premium leather and trimmed with brass hardware accents for a clean contrast. The standout feature for both are the Kimono-style plackets, giving them a sleek update that nods to the traditional Japanese garb. Purchase them at HAVEN’s online shop for $979 USD and $1927 USD respectively.
