Jon Frank for Orlebar Brown

orlebar.jpg

We've always been big fans of the vibrant prints Orlebar Brown brings to its swimwear and their latest collaboration continues that tradition with Australian photographer Jon Frank. Called the Artist of the Oceans, the collaboration is a natural fit with a capsule collection that features Frank's interpretation of wind and water in a colorful graphic treatment that's available in their Tommy T-Shirt, Morley Sweatshirt, and their popular Bulldog swim trunks.

Wallace and Barnes RAF Jacket

rafjacket.jpg

We're always keeping a close eye on Wallace and Barnes, J.Crew's premium in-house label, which always impresses with their elevated staples. We've always been taken with their outerwear pieces and this season is no exception. Our favorite style this winter is their RAF Jacket, a parka style modeled after jackets worn by the UK's Royal Air Force. They kept the style true to the original's length and upped the spec with a fully lined interior and dash of insulating fill for warmth.

$398, J.Crew

It was only a matter of time before The Hill-Side brought those damn good fabrics to a range of shirting. Today they launch their first seasonal collection of Made-in-the-USA styles and they're using some of their favorite American and Japanese fabrics from their Fall/Winter '14 line. The collection will consist of sixteen different fabrics which include everything from jacquard woven camos to Japanese selvedge in various colorways. All the shirts are cut and sewn in North Carolina, each featuring single needle construction and 2-eye natural corozo nut buttons.

The Absence

What makes a good pair of pants? Well, if you asked The Absence, it would be matching Japanese fabrics with a team of people who craft their pieces by hand and have generations of experience in doing so. Not a bad recipe to go by, if you ask us. The Absence is a new pant label consisting of three well-designed and well-crafted Made to Order pant styles in a fit that's not too slim or baggy, tapered like a chino, and sized to fit just about anyone. Our favorite style is their Cargo Pant with its classic military-style pockets, but in a relaxed, but tapered cut and garment dyed for that perfect finish. It's also available without the pockets in their "trouser pant" style if taste leans more towards the minimal side of things.

$195-$240, The Absence
