Which is why we’ve gone ahead and separated the wheat from the chaff of this winter’s new collaborations to bring you the ones worthy of your cranium, torso, boudoir and bar cart.
Greg Lauren x Banana Republic
Yes, he’s from that Lauren family, but unlike his uncle Ralph, Greg’s stuff is a bit more elegantly distressed, and hard to find, which is why it’s nice to see his designs get wider exposure at BR—even if you can only shop this stuff in-store in LA or NYC.
Kinfolk x Levi’s
The ridiculously hip label Kinfolk has emblazoned its iconic logo onto the perpetually hip Levi’s trucker jacket, therefore making anybody who wears one perpetually ridiculously hip as well. Get it while it lasts.
Killspencer x New Era
Three caps borrowing from New Era’s millinery knowhow and Killspencer’s all-black-everything-with-some-leather knowhow. Your head will thank you.
David Coggins x Sleepy Jones
Clever. Stylish. Leisurely. All things that can be said about either the author or the pajama label in this relationship. So it makes sense that they’d turn out some really good-looking loungewear.
Basil Hayden’s x Huckberry
It’s called Sipping Companions, and it’s actually six collaborations in one, resulting in six very bourbon-friendly, very gift-friendly items—ranging from a handsome weekender bag by Stanley & Sons to candles that smell like a bouquet of lilies. Just kidding—bourbon, they smell like delicious bourbon.
Ports 1961 x Everlast
The latest development in the trend-within-the-collab-trend of fashion labels turning their eye to classic athletic wear companies is Ports 1961 tapping Everlast—a name most prominent upon the waistbands of boxers. So expect tailored sweats and a couple of good-looking bomber jackets. Oh, and at least one poncho.
