Japan’s Awesome Boy enjoys a diverse following due to its all-encompassing selection of vintage items, which recently expanded to include bespoke patchwork creations. This juxtaposition of function-focused custom work and classic retro gear fuels the brand’s Fall/Winter 2019 lookbook, shot in a lush, rural setting.

Multi-pocketed vests and shirts appear throughout the shots, lending the lightweight layers a technical edge, with more rugged flair provided by Timberland boots and military backpacks. The relaxed tailoring of wool coats and jackets is subverted by sporty trackpants and jackets, while Awesome Boy’s patchwork inclinations yield contrasting side stripes and jeans recut with camouflage panels. A variety of classic headwear options — berets, beanies and snapbacks — further complement the anything-goes styling, perhaps best exemplified by a pair of Yankees caps fused into a cross-body bag.

Shop the Japanese brand’s wares, remake and proper vintage alike, via the Awesome Boy web store.
