No stranger to utilitarian clothing, Junya Watanabe puts together a military-inspired vest with a classy check pattern.

The woven wool tropical vest features a subtle tartan motif coated with pale green, and features different shades of gray. The front and sides incorporate multiple Velcro flap pockets, and three press-release fastenings to secure the vest onto the wearer. Connected with a padded mesh shoulder strap, the back is heavily-ornamented with adjustable cinch straps that are attached to the lateral sides. There are also zipper adornments running down the edges of the vest. The rear is equipped with a fold-over flap and a tonal webbing carrying handle at the top. Maintaining the military nature of the vest, a camouflage pattern in black, beige and green tinge arrives on the canvas lining.

Junya Watanabe’s Tropical Plaid Vest is now available for $1,410 USD at select retailers like SSENSE. Make sure to take a look at the images above to spot all the details in the vest. In other fashion news, Arc’teryx Veilance Fall/Winter 2019 delivers sleek, functional layers.
