After revealing three WTAPS-led collaborations at the “NO.813” pop-up at Isetan Shinjuku, we now get a closer look at the HUMAN MADE x WTAPS capsule.

Teased previously, the capsule includes a concise array of vintage-inspired pieces, emblazoned with vibrant illustrations that mimick the custom motifs often found on old military surplus. The range encompasses a flight jacket, hoodies, slub tees, a hat and a field jacket. One piece that wasn’t included in last week’s teaser is an olive field jacket that’s modeled after an M65 jacket. The garment sees a four-pocket construction with a semi-boxy fit. “HUMAN MADE” branding is placed above the upper left pocket, while WTAPS’ patch logo is sewn below. The back of the piece sees a highly detailed embroidery of a flying walrus and a winged dog, complemented by the words “FUTURISTIC TEENAGERS” and “HUMAN MADE” etched around the artwork.

Other noteworthy garments in the collection are the slub tees, knitted using old looms that are now used by only a handful of places, like the manufacturer Warehouse Japan. As a result, each T-shirt has a unique texture that gives off the look of an asymmetrical weaving pattern. The collars have been reinforced with a special Oyako binding technique that prevents fraying and stretching. As a final note, each tee comes in monochromatic base palettes, printed over with motifs reminiscent of custom surplus artwork from the early ’60s to late ’70s.

The HUMAN MADE x WTAPS Capsule will be available at the GIP-STORE in Tokyo and select retailers on October 26.

Elsewhere, Gakuro has reinterpreted vintage sportswear with its FW19 capsule.
