NOAH knows how to curate a commemorative capsule, delivering festive offerings for holidays like Christmas and paying homage to some of the brand’s key musical inspirations including The Cure, The Red Hot Chili Peppers and Jimi Hendrix throughout its consistent seasonal releases.

St. Patrick’s Day is no exception for Brendon Babenzien‘s NYC-based label, who has used the imminent occasion to spotlight another one of his key influences. Babenzien tapped into his personal connection to UK rockers The Pogues to deliver a green-hued capsule in homage to the Shane MacGowan-fronted band.

The capsule includes a leather sport coat, a crewneck, two long-sleeve tees, two short-sleeve tees, a 5-panel hat and a Zippo lighter. Take a closer look at the pieces below.

“I’ve spent a fair amount of time trying to sort out how to put into words what The Pogues and Shane MacGowan have meant to me, especially following Shane’s passing. I’ve also decided to stop trying after realizing what’s important cannot be described in words,” Babenzien shared in an Instagram post. “My connection to the music of The Pogues has always been purely emotional, and as someone who wants to live in a world ruled by emotion, I’m thankful for that.”

“To be honest, when I first heard The Pogues, it was a mystery as to why I would be drawn to the sound of Irish music. Fortunately, I didn’t think much about it and just let the music do its job. There are plenty of other people who can try and sell you on The Pogues who are better writers and more charismatic than myself. I guess you could go read the books and watch the documentaries – or just listen to the music with an open heart. RIP Shane.”
