Abu Garcia, an otherwise unassuming fishing brand, has exploded in popularity in Japan over the past year, following suit with Japanese-operated DAIWA. Abu Garcia has collaborated with the likes of taste-making boutique 1LDK and is-ness and now rejoins omnipresent retailer BEAMS for another round of special goods, launching just ahead of Spring/Summer 2021.
Issued in timeless black and military-adjacent olive drab, the collection comprises a few fishing essentials, remixed with contemporary cool and comfort-minded cuts. These include a baggy BDU jacket with over a half-dozen layered pockets and tabs, a sizeable vest, knee-length cargo shorts, bucket hats and logo-laden T-shirts, picking right where the duo’s Fall/Winter 2020 partnership left off. Each cargo-friendly item is relatively affordable — the jackets weigh in at about $250 USD and vests at around $150 USD — and cut from a tough water-resistant stretch polyester, retaining the reliable nature that customers expect from Abu Garcia.
Pre-order the exclusive Abu Garcia items on BEAMS’ web store before they launch in March.
