Seoul-based label EASTLOGUE and New Balance Korea rejoin for another collaborative effort rife with technical gear. Countless cargo pockets inform the “RIGGER MADE” capsule, which takes cues from the uniforms worn by America’s Airbone Corps in World War II.
Inspired by the parachute riggers and fighter pilots of yore, EASTLOGUE has elevated vintage layers and backpacks into a covetable range of cargo-pocketed clothing ideal for cooler weather. Polartec and GORE-TEX lining adds extra warmth to the slouchy jackets, parkas, vests and trousers, while hooded coats filled with goose down and 3M synthetic filler provide maximum winter protection. Each item is packed with detail, including reflective co-branded prints, stowable hoods, buttons with pull tabs for easy access and three-dimensional pockets, which grant extra storage capacity.
Exclusive to Korea, the collaborative New Balance capsule hits EASTLOGUE’s web store and select domestic outposts on September 27.
Meanwhile, the North American New Balance branch introduced another CORDURA-lined 997 Sport sneaker.
