10 Drops You Don’t Want to Miss This Week
Including the new Supreme x Timberland collaboration.
As we move ever-so deeper into the fall/winter season, more and more items continue to hit the market — all in efforts to keep us stylishly sharp, yet functionally protected from the season’s bitter cold clutch. Very much in line with previous product drop lists, we see some entries this week from some of streetwear’s heaviest hitters, including BAPE, Supreme, KITH and others.
As always, a handful of notable collaborations hit our radar, including a pairing from BEAMS and Champion, a joint venture between The Hundreds and Animaniacs, not to mention a Supreme and Timberland sighting. Here are some noteworthy items in stores now or soon on their way.

Billionaire Boys Club chose to celebrate its NYC flagship location with a commemorative collection. Dubbed “212,” the capsule is comprised of activewear-inspired French Terry shirts, hoodies, crewnecks and pants, all of which take on core hues of grey and/or white — reminiscent of the area’s concrete jungle surroundings. Bold branding and varsity letter taglines found throughout add a dose of artistic flair. The collection is available now at the NYC flagship store and online.
HUF “Blackout” Collection
HUF turned back the hands of time to the early ‘80s with its new BMX-inspired collection.
