spiewak0.jpg

We can talk about heritage brands all day, but when it comes down to it there are few as important and iconic as Spiewak. The company has long been a trusted name in apparel and their resume is nothing short of word class. They have outfitted everyone from the US Army to Police Departments and trendsetters across the globe. Spiewak has been at it since 1904 and are relaunching this fall with modern and updated takes on some of their most famous pieces.

The main collection stays true to their heritage while taking their utility aesthetic to the streets with jackets that have a technical edge and military-inspired styling. They will also be launching a premium Golden Fleece line that recreates iconic Spiewak styles from their storied 110-year history. The main collection will be available globally at retailers such as Barney's, WP Store Brooklyn, and Saks Fifth Avenue. The Golden Fleece line launch this January at 14oz in Berlin and Ron Herman in LA and Tokyo.

Herno Laminar F/W '14

The always busy Errolson Hugh presents his newest goods with Herno Laminar and if you're looking for something a little less Neo-Tokyo than Acronym, Herno Laminar is definitely the way to go. The jackets have a stealthy elegance while offering an exceedingly technical feature set that will keep your warm and protected from miserable weather situations.

Styles like the Short Jacket and Tone Padded jacket are low profile, beautifully cut, but offer Gore-Tex weather protection and lightweight down to deliver warmth without the heft of a traditional down jacket. Other styles like the Fishtail jacket utilize a GORE-TEX 2 layer shell and fully taped seams giving you a vault of weather-fighting fabric.
