WTAPS has been rather patient in terms of making noise within the early weeks of 2021, but the Tokyo-based entity is ready to start proffering up more items to the globe. This newest initiative is being produced alongside widely-heralded athletic company Champion, and entails a concise-but-cozy range of neutral basics.

Inspiration for this collaboration is predicated upon Tetsu Nishiyama‘s BLANKS apparel line, which essentially an assortment of minimally-branded items designed for everyday wear. The silhouettes are boxy in fit, feature a slightly wider-trimmed collar, and arrive heavier in weight compared to the the average basic tee — which is better for the long run as they will be harder to shrink and/or wear down over time.

Lined up in the collection are hooded sweatshirts, crewnecks and tees that come in both long an short-sleeved variations. Each style comes in a set of muted neutral colorways including “Grey”, “Navy”, and “Olive Drab”. The pieces are decorated with co-branded patches and interior tags to nod to the partnership.

Prices for the silhouettes are as follows: ¥8,000 (approx. $76 USD) for the short-sleeved tees, ¥10,000 (approx. $95 USD) for the long-sleeved tees, ¥20,000 (approx. $190 USD) for the crewnecks, and ¥22,000 (approx. $210 USD) for the hoodies.

Interested parties can cop these starting on February 20, 2021 via WTAPS and Champion.
