18 East is still young yet, but the New York label has already garnered a cultish following on the back of its quietly stylish, ultra-comfortable menswear. Its ethically-constructred overshirts, cinched cargo pants and reversible workwear are returning in another one-off drop as 18 East preps its fans for autumn with a plethora of covetable, limited-run garments.
A vegan silk quilted parka, wide wale corduroy jackets and the brand’s signature Gorecki cargo pant (so named for Jimmy Gorecki, who prepped some complementary Standard Issue thermal crewnecks) anchor a selection of exquisite, handcrafted items. The brand’s covetable fleece vest is joined by the Nomad cardigan — both crafted from organic cotton sherpa — while B Thom Stevenson contributed to a series of graphic knit pieces. Lush Indian textiles lend complement the block-printed patterns that grace a coaches jacket and the crispy water repellent nylon that informs a relaxed shirt-jacket.
The new collection arrives on 18 East’s website and its New York flagship on October 23.
Elsewhere in New York, Maryam Nassir Zadeh introduced her debut menswear collection.
